A supporter of indigenous peoples braves a water cannon and continues to record with his mobile phone the dispersal of a protest rally against reported human rights abuses infront of the headquarters of the Armed Forces of the Philippines in Quezon City on November 18, 2015. About 700 indigenous peoples from various parts of the country trooped to the military camp to protest “development aggression and plunder of natural resources” and demand justice for their slain leaders.
