Aba, oo! When I was about 5 or 6 years old, I would listen to the radio and cry in front of the mirror. Rumarampa din ako sa harap ng salamin. I did not pursue acting then because I lived in the province so I had no way of knowing how to become an artista.

Vox y PAN Una alianza “non sancta”

El español Vox se presenta como defensor de la libertad, la democracia y el estado de derecho, pero detrás de esa fachada se asoma lo que en realidad es: un partido de ultraderecha, xenófobo, homófobo y racista, cuyas tesis coquetean con el fascismo y cuya estrategia discursiva es una copia del populismo de Donald Trump. Ese es el partido que firmó una “alianza” con senadores de Acción Nacional para defender a la “iberosfera”ante el “comunismo”.
