We had the privilege to listen to several Filipino youths present what they understand of the Tobacco Free Generation International Social Movement on 9 January 2021. This was under the leadership of Mr Russel Sarmiento of Dinalupihan, the Republic of Philippines. These youths presented well and confidently. They also added in their independent opinion on how TFG is better and more harmonious in PREVENTION than what the rest of the world is doing now in pushing for legislation that will curb smokers. We learnt this analogy from this Filipino team “The Minimum Age Law creates that Forbidden Fruit effect like how Adam & Eve, in the Garden of Eden, were told not to eat the fruit”. Congratulations to these youths for adding value to the global TFG Endgame narrative. We are proud of you all!
We congratulate these Philippines youths for a great return presentation to show that they have internalised the TFG approach, language and practice. This follows after an earlier demonstration to them several weeks ago.
