Free Legal Assistance Group (FLAG) chairman Chel Diokno on Saturday (July 4) assured Filipinos will not cower before the Anti-Terrorism Law.
“No law will ever cow us into submission,” he declared in his social media posts.
“At kung gaano kalupit ang batas, ganoon din katindi ang ganti ng taumbayan,” he assured.
In the face of invaders or dictators, Diokno reminded “ang paulit-ulit na pinatunayan—at paulit-ulit na patutunayan—ng mga Pilipino: #DiTayoPasisiil!”
“Duterte’s Anti-Terror Law will terrorize our democracy, not the terrorists,” Diokno also warned.
With this, Diokno continue to urge amendments in the law.
In the event petitions be filed before the Supreme Court (SC) against the law, Diokno also asked the public to closely watch over it.
