Lunchtime Quickie

Oh, those wacky CPDRC inmates, you know, from the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in the Philippines. You remember. They’ve got a new number. Laura Branigan. I don’t fully understand how this is a “protest dance” but it’s nothing short of amazing, just the same.

What I love most is the catholic use of the title for the archbishop's visit.

I hope if I ever lose my legs that someone gets me a skateboard so I can tool around Bham. You know, for protests, and whatnot.

so, according to the video, the inmates are protesting against the words of jun lozada, who testified against the filipino president in recent senate hearings. the president of the philippines is gloria arroy--hence "protest dance!"

i really love my people.

This video is like a laptop in my dunebuggy, it just doesn't make sense.

Does anyone know why and/or how they do these dance numbers? Is it part of their rehabilitation? Are they forced to dance? It doesn't look like it. Does anyone know anything else about this prison? (i.e. recidivism rates, etc.)

The president of the Phillipines is Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
