Life is all about taking a stand... making a choice....
“When you have to make a choice
and don’t make it, that is in itself a choice.”
In today's most debated RA 10175 known as the Cybercrime Prevention Law, what is your stand?
PRO or ANTI?
Earlier today at FREEDOM PARK, some media practitioners expressed their protest against the approval of such law.
Efforts have been made by some private individuals / organizations to make it known to the public why the law needs to be revisited.
The law in itself is very ideal.
Cyber crime is a great deal that has to be addressed.
However inclusion of some provisions seems to be questionable,
unacceptable and vague.
Statements not clearly defined is subject to different interpretations and will only cause
Many are also threatened that instead of safeguarding the rights of the people, this law will
be used by those who are in power to silence their critics.
Ehem... Election 2013...
Netizens are denied the right for due process as DOJ is given the power to automatically block off sites deemed to be 'libelous'.
What makes it so special for libel committed through internet to be punishable with up to 12 years of imprisonment which is twice the maximum years of imprisonment in other libel cases?
and so on...
These are just some of the points raised by those who stood firmly that RA 10175 should be junked.
I guess everyone would agree that there is no absolute freedom.
Freedom comes with great responsibility.
We are governed by laws.
However LAWS should always be scrutinized
especially by the people who are governed by it.

whether you are pro or anti
you should let yourself be heard.
