[Statement] NTC order vs. ABS CBN endangers welfare of public battling COVID19 crisis- iDEFEND

NTC order vs. ABS CBN endangers welfare of public battling COVID19 crisis- iDEFEND

In Defense of Human Rights and Dignity Movement (iDEFEND) expresses alarm at the cease and desist order by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) against ABS-CBN despite the media organization’s application for the renewal of its franchise, which has been filed months earlier without any response from the House of Representatives.

Now, in the midst of a national health crisis where the government is failing to provide accurate, timely, and useful information to the public, the Solicitor General and the NTC attempt to close ABS CBN in an underhanded attack on press freedom. The politically motivated gag order by the NTC spells a serious breach of the people’s right to accessible and reliable information and will result in diminishing the people’s capacity to respond effectively to the national health crisis. Solicitor General Calida and the NTC should be held accountable for endangering the people’s welfare by depriving them of the basic service of mass media. At this time, when the government wants us to supposedly “heal as one”, it must focus its efforts on rallying the forces and institutions which are critical to the implementation of solutions, through rights-based governance instead of rewarding ineptitude, intimidation, and human rights abuse.

[Statement] WORKERS ARE NOT VIRUS-PROOF! Advocacy groups call for expanded massive testing before economic restart -PAHRA, iDEFEND, #MassTestingNowPH

WORKERS ARE NOT VIRUS-PROOF
Advocacy groups call for expanded massive testing before the economic restart

As the nation commemorates Labor Day amid the COVID-19 pandemic, scientists, artists, youth, human rights, public health, and citizen groups join forces with the labor sector to demand the increase and expansion of mass testing capacities of the country before lifting the enhanced community quarantine protocols and reopening the economy. The government and business groups have been keen to start economic activities the soonest to save the country from further economic meltdown. However, civil society groups have expressed their concern over the risks of this move and the need to address the public’s fear and panic with the possible lifting of the ECQ for the interest of the business.

Molecular biologist Joshua Danac of Scientists Unite Against COVID-19 (SUAC-19) cited the poor execution of mass testing in the country. “There are still massive backlogs in testing centers, and results take very long to be released. The Department of Health has failed to attain its initial stated target of 8,000 tests per day.” Since the government’s declaration on the start of mass testing on April 14, Danac pointed out that there are only 19 accredited testing centers in the whole country as of April 30, with around 50 percent of those centers based in NCR alone.

Danac further said, “The actual testing capacity of our country still lags behind because laboratories and personnel have not been capacitated in the first place. For massive testing not to fail, we must ask the government to be transparent and to act on the following issues: how will capacity be increased to clear the backlogs and shorten turnaround times? How will they increase the number of tests done per day? What about funding — will the government dedicate part of its budget for increasing testing capacity by buying equipment and hiring personnel?”

Meanwhile, human rights-based health service organization Medical Action Group (MAG) pointed out that aside from incapacitated testing centers and personnel, a public health and rights-based approach was not initiated by the government as well. According to MAG Executive Director Edel Hernandez, “The lack of diagnostics and cure for COVID-19 underscores the need for the government to scale up the mass testing using international standards, protecting the health of frontliners, and improving the delivery of healthcare services around the country. Inaction on the part of the government is a disservice to the nation. The COVID-19 pandemic is undoubtedly creating a climate of fear and panic through restrictive, stigmatizing, and punitive measures imposed by the government as infectious disease control.” MAG urged the government to veer away from compulsory restrictions towards a human rights-based approach, centered on evidence-based response and promoting community empowerment and engagement.

The Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA) emphasized the demand for the government to take a human rights-based approach in tackling the COVID-19 situation in the country. According to PAHRA, while mass testing is an important step to address the public health crisis, the government must also address the social impact of the community lockdown. It pointed out that the basic human rights of workers especially their safety and security should be guaranteed by the government, not neglected. PAHRA Secretary General Rose Trajano said, “Testing, continuing assistance, and security of work are the basic human rights that should be effectively addressed by the government. Though certain limitations on fundamental rights and freedoms are unavoidable during public health emergencies, any disproportionate response can definitely lead to significant human rights violations. It amplifies the already underlying barriers that people face in protecting their health and their inability to meet basic survival needs.” Recent news reports and viral social media posts have shown arbitrary arrests and ill treatment by law enforcers to people who have breached quarantine restrictions.

With the government preparing to loosen the lockdown by May 15, the artist-activist collective DAKILA criticized plans of the government to reopen the economy without providing proper safety nets to the labor sector and the poor. Conglomerates and major business owners earlier announced Project ARK, a joint initiative to conduct massive testing on workers using rapid antibody test kits to help them assess who is fit to return to work. Medical experts have warned against the use of antibody test kits as diagnostic tools due to their tendency to display ‘false negative’ results. DAKILA spokesperson Leni Velasco said, “The return of work operations around the country is essential for the economy to run again, but to facilitate that using unreliable means will put workers into danger. The move to use to rapid antibody tests for mass screening for COVID19 will only give workers a false sense of security and run the risk of spreading the virus in the workplace — leading to a second wave of infection that our public health system won’t survive.”

DAKILA also slammed the recent statement of the Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion saying that the workers and the poor are more resilient to the virus and should be separated from those who are healthy through isolation. The statement, they pointed out, is a gross manifestation of the unjust treatment of the working poor, as well as businesses’ lack of value for laborers. “Workers and the poor are NOT virus-proof. They remain one of the most vulnerable sectors in this pandemic. In any situation, their lives must never be put in danger; it must be protected at all times. We can’t restart the economy at the expense of workers’ safety,” Velasco ended.

In line with this demand, a group of volunteers who started the campaign on mass testing named #MassTestingNowPH calls on the government to strengthen the Test-Treat-Trace approach in addressing the pandemic. The campaign urges business owners to use rRT-PCR testing to assist the return of employees to work after community quarantine protocols are lifted and they call for workers to demand the same. “Only through expanded RT-PCR testing can we have an accurate picture of the COVID-19 infection in the country. This should serve as the basis for any government decisions and actions. We should strengthen our call for mass testing, contact tracing, isolation, and treatment along with the continued provision of health and socio-economic assistance to our people,” #MassTestingNowPH said.

DAKILA, PAHRA, MAG, SUAC, and #MassTestingNowPH expressed their social solidarity with the Filipino working class which for the first time in Philippine history held Labor Day 2020 protest online in the context of the pandemic. In its unity statement, the groups said, “While the economy should be saved from further decline, it is by protecting and safeguarding the workers that can ensure the continuing lifeline of the economy. The working people are not virus proof and yet like the health workers, the government is sending them out like sacrifical lambs in this pandemic.”

The groups committed to intensifying the #MassTestingNowPH campaign until laboratories and personnel are capacitated, massive RRT-PCR-based testing is conducted, public health and rights-based approach are adopted by the government and the business sector, and the safety of workers are not put in danger amidst the desire to restart the economy.

[Video] Lumabas Tayo! Lumaban Tayo! -iDEFEND

Lumabas tayo is a call of human rights defenders during the time of the 2020 enhanced community quarantine in Manila and the region-wide Luzon lockdown due to the COVID19 pandemic. It tells people that while we are staying inside we must step outside of the narrowing confines of our self concerns because there is a bigger fight outside that we are more than capable of confronting and overcoming if we step outside the limits of our fears and boldly stake our claim to a better tomorrow that will not allow a repeat of this horrific chapter in our lives.

[Press Release] Human rights groups lament the weaknesses in the government response to COVID19 one month after the ECQ -iDEFEND

Human rights groups lament the weaknesses in the government response to COVID19 one month after the ECQ

Quezon City- Human rights groups lamented the weaknesses in the government program to address COVID19 one month after the enforcement of the enhanced community quarantine, particularly the lack of mass testing.

In an online press conference assessing the one-month implementation of the Luzon-wide Lockdown, panelists said weak leadership, uncoordinated actions and heavy-handed punishment of curfew violators are adding to the people’s apprehensions.

“Government measures to combat COVID19 seriously lack the process to involve meaningfully, people’s participation,” said PAHRA(Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates) chairperson Dr. Nymia Pimentel Simbulan, “National authorities treated Filipinos as either naughty subjects or hapless victims, ignoring their important views on the national effort to combat COVID19. The paradigm of warfare was used to emphasize peace and order which resulted in human rights violations including torture, cruel and degrading treatment and sexual harassment. We are not at war! We are in defense of Life with Dignity” Simbulan added.

“Enhanced Community Quarantine has become an excuse to push the exploitative economic agenda of corporations and the development framework of government at the expense of indigenous peoples and rural communities”, said Judy Pasimio, iDEFEND (In Defense of Human Rights and Dignity Movement) Spokesperson and Director of LILAK Purple Action for Indigenous Women’s Rights. She cited the forced entry of diesel tankers of the mining company Oceana Gold Philippines, in Bgy Didipio Nueva Vizcaya despite quarantine regulations.

Atty. Teddy Te of the Free Legal Assistance Group (FLAG) cited that the justice system is overshadowed by the peace and order framework of government. He urged the Supreme Court to adopt special rules towards facilitating more accessible processes during the time of quarantine, since most lawyers are at home and could not physically assist their clients. “The Supreme Court have allowed virtual access in certain situations but it is not enough”, Te remarked. “Legal and rights information become very important in these times. People need to know what to do and should have access to useful knowledge.” Te added.

Gary Granada of the artist group LAPIS said that the global pandemic exposed and exacerbated the stark inequalities in Philippine society, and has caught government unprepared to mitigate the gap.

Dr. Nemuel Fajutagana of the Medical Action Group(MAG) reiterated the health sector’s appeal for protection and assistance to health personnel especially in the extended quarantine period where he said they are already experiencing fatigue and heightened stress.

The group called on government to strengthen a rights-based approach to the COVID19 response which puts a premium on transparency and accountability of authorities, effective and empowering participation of affected communities, and science-based processes towards flattening the curve.

[Statement] Pagkain, tulong, proteksyon, hindi banta ng pandarahas -iDEFEND

Tuwiran nang nilantad ni Pangulong Duterte ang kawalang kakayahan ng gobyernong tugunan ang pinakamahahalagang usapin sa panahon ng pandemyang COVID19.

Sa gitna ng kagutuman at kahirapang dulot ng Luzon lockdown ang tanging sagot ni Duterte sa mamamayang kumakalam ang sikmura ay pananakot at pandarahas. Subalit higit na pinsala ang inutil at militaristang tugon ni Duterte sa hinaing ng mamamayan.

Matatandaang ito rin ang naging tugon niya sa anya’y talamak na problema sa droga. Tuloy tuloy ang EJK sa ilalim ng giyera laban sa droga. Dumagdag sa panganib na ito ang pandemyang coronavirus.

Imbes na pabilisin ang proseso at pahusayin ang pagbibigay ng ayudang pagkain o pera sa mamamayan, bibigwasan tayo ng “maghintay na lang” at may sundot pang “walang mamamatay sa gutom”.

Maari ngang wala pang namamatay sa gutom mula sa sitwasyong dulot ng COVID -19, ngunit tiyak na marami nang namatay mula sa kapabayaan ng gubyerno, tingnan na lamang ang bilang ng namatay na mga medical personnel bunga ng kawalan ng sapat na personal protective equipment o mga mamamayang namatay na sa COVID-19 na di man lang inabot ng testing.

Sa pagka insecure ni Duterte sa tibay ng suporta sa kanya ng mamamayan, sinimulan ang panggigipit sa mga lider tulad ni Mayor Vico Sotto ng Pasig, na patuloy na nagbibigay ayuda na ramdam ng kanyang mga nasasakupan. Sinimulan din ang planong pag iimbestiga kay Vice President Leni Robredo, dahil sa mababaw na dahilang nauungusan ang ehekutibo (nasyunal na pamahalaan) sa pamimigay ng serbisyo sa tao. Lalong masaklap ang BAHO Law (R.A. 11469) na naka ambang tugisin ang mga kritiko ng palpak na mga patakarang pambansa sa harap ng pandemyang COVID-19.

Sa totoo, hindi na dapat problema ang pera—ito ang unang tiniyak sa paspasang pag-apruba ng Bayanihan We Heal As One Act. Matapos ang isang linggong walang nangyari, higit na malinaw ngayon na walang konkreto at epektibong plano ang pambansang gobyerno sa kabila ng emergency powers na ipinagkaloob kay Duterte.

Nanatiling maraming mamamayan ang naiiwan sa para-paraang pag-angkop sa sitwasyong bunga ng enhanced community quarantine o lockdown. Pasakit at hindi malasakit ang sukli sa mamamayang pwersadong manatili sa kanilang mga pamayanan.
