Actress Angel Locsin has appealed to the government to stop red-tagging persons just because of voicing out opposing views.

Locsin made the appeal on Instagram after denying allegations she is involved with communist rebel group.

“To set the record straight, hindi po ako parte ng NPA or any terrorist group 😅. Neither my sister nor my kuya Neri is a part of the NPA or any terrorist group,” she said in her online post Friday Oct. 23.

Locsin has invoked the freedom of expression which protected by the Constitution, saying having different views on issues doesn’t mean a person is already “red.”

“We live in a country where our freedom to speak and express ourselves are enshrined and protected by the Constitution. May paniniwala ako, may paniniwala ka. At sa ilalim Ng Consitution, pareho tayong mayroon karapatan sa ating nga sariling paniniwala,” she said.

“Kung magkaiba tayo, hindi ibig sabihin pwede mo na ako i-red tag. Hindi tayo magkakalaban dito. Hindi rin ako ‘red.’ Magkaiba lang tayo ng paniniwala”, she added.

She urged the government to correct the mistake of red-tagging, saying it only endangers the lives of citizens.

“Nanawagan po ako sa kinauukulan, na itama po ang mali na ito. Tigilan na po ang red tagging. The statement made is utterly false and places ordinary citizens like us, those who they swore to protect, in danger,” she said

While she has been attacked in the past, Locsin said she could not ignore the latest allegation against her.

“This is a different level altogether. And so I have to speak up once again because this baseless and reckless red-tagging jeopardizes not only my safety but also the safety of my sister and our family,” she said.

Instead of focusing on red-tagging, she proposed to the government to address concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic as well improving the welfare of the military.

“Nakakalungkot po isipin na dito napupunta ang malaking halaga na 19.3B, sa mga paratang na walang basehan at pananakot na red tagging. Sana ibigay na lang po sa ibang departamento ng AFP katulad ng medical reserve corps o pagtaas ng sweldo at pension ng mga sundalo natin,” she said.

“Malaking tulong rin po for purchasing vaccines or other COVID-19 response programs. Many of our countrymen need financial assistance. Mga OFW na nawalan ng trabaho. Madaming mas nangangailangan ng pera ngayon. Sana doon na lang ilaan at sana doon ibuhos ang oras,” she added.

On fellow celebrities like Liza Soberano and Catriona Grey who are vocal about their views, Locsin called for support for them.

“I am also appealing to everyone to express support for those being red-tagged like Liza Soberano, Catriona Grey, and all the others just because they are expressing their beliefs peacefully,” she said.

Those I could ignore but this is a different level altogether. And so I have to speak up once again because this baseless and reckless red-tagging jeopardizes not only my safety, but also the safety of my sister and our family. 💋
