[Statement] In Response to the Threats of the PNP and the DILG -NAGKAISA
We, the people, are the authors of the Constitution.
Any law or proposal enacted by Congress which destroys or derogates our rights is not a law but an abuse of power.
It is the duty of every citizen to resist or reject such oppressive proposal as a matter of right to self-defense and defense of the rights of the people.
It is for this reason why NAGKAISA, together with the broad Anti-Terror Bill movement will hold mañanita in the streets tomorrow to press for an end to this new nightmare.
We call on the President to veto the bill and instead work on a robust economic package that would address the lack of aid and the massive job losses brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.
