ACCORDING to HR Watch, the anti-terror bill, when passed as law, makes it criminal offense to incite individuals as committing acts of terrorism “by means of speeches, proclamations, writings, emblems, banners or other representations tending to the same end.”
The anti-terror bill poses threats to our rights as Filipinos, and to our rights to free speech and expression. And the moment we lose these rights is the moment we lose our freedom.
On the day declaring our independence as a people and as a nation, Traveling Journo Ph upholds our rights and our freedom, and joins the call to #JunkTerrorBill.
