Women's partylist group Gabriela today expressed their sympathies to the families of victims of the Resorts World incident in Manila as they condemned the violent attack.

"We join the families of the victims as they mourn their loss and are one with them in seeking answers to questions now being raised after the unfortunate incident," said Gabriela Women's Party Rep. Emmi De Jesus who said a thorough and impartial investigation must follow.

Further, De Jesus warned against terror-tagging made by US President Trump fanning speculations and hysteria that may be used to justify military rule.

"We call for sobriety and vigilance. This incident must not and should not be used as part of a script to set the tone for the extension and expansion of the Martial Law declaration."

De Jesus, fellow lawmaker, Arlene Brosas and members of the partylist group reiterated their call for President Duterte to immediately lift Martial Law in Mindanao as they joined the weekly #BlackFridayProtest today in Quezon City. #
