Do You Have The Stomach To Watch This Video? It’s Called ‘Pagpag’. How Meat Is Recycled From The Dump & Sold To The Poor In Manilla


Editor’s Note Advisory: Some in the west may find this challenging video unsettling and gross, but before problems can be addressed they must first be seen and understood.
