Description

In the Philippines, door-to-door drug use "surveys" are spreading new fear through poor communities already plagued by anti-drug vigilantes and extrajudicial police killings. The survey teams ask about ask about drug use by family members and neighbors, and homes of suspects are marked with a red X.

Local administrative districts were ordered to collect the data this spring, and to provide lists of suspected drug offenders to the Philippine National Police.

Critics say the records amount to "kill lists" in President Rodrigo Duterte's war on illegal drugs. More than 10,000 people have been killed since Duterte launched his bloody crusade, according to human rights organizations.

VICE News followed along as community volunteers in Payatas on the outskirts of Metro Manila spent their Sunday morning rounding up neighbors on the watch list, to deliver them to local authorities.
