Duterte’s Oplan Tokhang: Can the Philippines’ Revolution Re-Emerge?

I'm posting an essay ("Duterte’s Oplan Tokhang: Can the Philippines’ Revolution Re-Emerge?") based on research and interviews I conducted during visits to the Philippines in November 2016 and April 2017. I may still publish it, but I wanted to share it with friends now in light of two recent events: the recent intensification of Duterte's "war on drugs", in which perhaps 80, mostly urban poor, have been murdered by the police, and President Trump's comments, reported in last week's NYT: https://nyti.ms/2vGvylL
