2020年7月5日,菲律賓移民家務工組織在駐港菲律賓領事館所處的金鐘統一中心外舉行抗議行動

Filipino migrant domestic workers organizations held a protest action outside United Centre, where Consulate General of the Phillippines in Hong Kong situates, on 5 July 2020.

 

羅德里戈·杜特爾特總統於2020年7月3日星期五簽署的新《反恐法》標誌著民主在菲律賓的死亡。

就住《反恐法》匆匆席捲菲律賓參議院和眾議院及簽署,各菲律賓進步組織和個人今天宣示他們的憤慨。

《反恐法》應是要捍衛公民的民主權利的,但事實上背道而馳。實際上,它的設計是要恐嚇人民,尤其是批評政府的人、社會運動者、大眾傳媒體、以及所有被政府視為反對派的人。

由總統內閣秘書和官員組成的反恐委員會將無需經正當程序決定逮捕,拷打,殺害和拘留任何人。軍部和警察將包攬行政,司法和立法權執行這項壓制性的法律。

海外菲律賓工人亦會受到《反恐法》的威脅。實際上,甚至在《反恐法》實施之前,對杜特爾特政府的反移民政策發表意見的海外菲律賓工士都已受到了騷擾和政治迫害。想像一下,《反恐法》最嚴重的影響將會是徹底消滅1987年憲法所賦予的權利和自由。

更可鄙的是《反恐法》通過的時間。菲律賓人民正遭受由COVID-19造成的有史以來最嚴重的健康和經濟災難。我們正處於歷史上最糟糕的時期,因為當菲律賓正處於自封鎖以來的最高病毒傳播水平時,而總統卻無視人民的緊迫基本需要。

現在該是時候結束杜特爾特的壓迫性和剝削性政府了,該政府的特徵是腐敗、裙帶關係和軍國主義,更因而加劇了貧困並給普通百姓帶來了苦難,是時候要求根據預算已批出的公共資金提供醫療服務和經濟援助了。

讓我們把這項《反恐法》作為反對專制,腐敗,貪婪和獨裁統治的另一個挑戰。讓我們申明主權屬於人民。我們最好的武器是喚起,組織和動員我們的同胞。

廢除《反恐法》!
捍衛人權!
提供免費的健康和社會服務!
杜特爾特立即辭職!

The new Ant-Terror Law that President Rodrigo Duterte signed on Friday the 3rd of July 2020 marks the death of democracy in the country.

This was declared today dy progressive organizations and individuals to express their Outrage in the hasty signing of the ATL after this was raiiroaded in the Senate and House of Representatives.

The Anti-Terror Law contradicts itself which is to safeguard the democratic rights of the citizens. In fact, it is designed to terrorize the people, especially the government critics, social activists, mass media, and all sectors that the government perceives as its opponents.

An Anti-Terror Council composed of cabinet secretaries and officials under the President will determine who will be arrested, tortured, killed, and detained without due process. The military and police will implement this oppressive law which covers executive, judicia!, and even legislative powers.

Overseas Fiipino workers are not exempted from the ATL. As a matter of fact, even before the ATL, OFWs who voiced their opinions against the anti-migrant policies of the Duterte government have been harassed and politically persecuted. Imagine the worst impact of the ATL which has totally wiped away the rights and freedoms enshrined in the 1987 Constitution.

Even more contemptible is the timing of the passing of the ATL. The Filipino people are suffering from the worst ever health and economic plague caused by COVID-19. We are at the worst period in our history when a President ignores the urgent basic needs Qf the people as the Philippines records the highest levels of transmissions since the lockdown.

It is time to end Duterte’s oppressive and exploitative government that is marked by corruption, cronyism, and militarism that worsened poverty and caused misery to the ordinary people, it is time to demand delivery of health services and financial assistance according to the budgeted public funds.

Let us take this Anti-Terror Law as another challenge to rise up against tyranny, corruption, greed and dictatorship. Let us affirm that sovereignty resides in the people. Our best weapon Is to arouse, organize, and mobilize our compatriots.

Junk the Anti-Terror Law!
Defend human rights!
Provide free health and social services!
Duterte Resign Now!
