Today is the death of democracy in the Philippines

You don't have to comment on this blog post. Under the new law, that is now considered a crime punishable to up to 12 years in prison. But please write to our senators, especially Ralph Recto, Gringo Honasan, Pimentel, Chiz Escudero, Ping Lacson, Bong Revilla, Pia Cayetano, Manny Villar, Loren Legarda, BongBong Marcos, Lito Lapid, Jinggoy Estrada and Tito Sotto, and—most tragic and ironic of all—to the President himself, Noynoy Aquino. They made this anti-democracy law.

Then please sign the petition to junk R.A. 10175.

I did. I care about my freedom of expression, my right to privacy, and my children's future.

Vince made this meme.
Actually, don't be scared to comment, share, spread, blog, Tweet about this law. Under the 1987 Philippine Constitution - Article III, Section 4: No law shall be passed abridging the freedom of speech, of expression, or of the press, or the right of the people to peacably assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances.

The Anti-Cyber Crime Law is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. It is WRONG. Protest it. The constitution protects us against this law. Make your voice heard!

    1. Yes. Kindly click on the link above: "Please sign the petition to junk R.A. 10175." Thanks! =)

  2. Hay, Frances....you said it! Let's move na to Canada!

  3. Lawmakers and the Supreme Court judges must have forgotten what the Law says! Uh-huh. Okay.

  4. Ms. Frances, can I use the meme on Facebook?

  5. We have the right to express ourselves through internet. Through the internet, we have the freedom of speech. Don't let that vanish. Stop cybercrime law.
