Defaced websites were showing a message against the “Cyber Crime Law”
In the year 1987 when the late former President Corazon Aquino passed the bill that gave the Filipino people its right to freedom of speech and expression but in the year 2012 politicians and lawmakers came up of the billthat kills the right of the people to freely express their opinion and freedom of speech through the internet.
The 1987 Constitution, Article III, Bill of Rights, Section 4 states,
“No law shall be passed abridging the freedom of speech, of expression, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances.”
We, the citizens of the internet, fight again for this right and for this freedom. We fight not only for ourselves but also for others who stand with us against the Cyber Crime Law â€” bloggers, gamers or ordinary internet users.
This is our way to express and oppose the bill that may destroy the future of the internet in the Philippines. We believe that together we shall achieve the goal and the purpose of this cause. We shall stand and fight for the Filipino Netizens’ right to freedom of speech and expression.
Protect our Right to Freedom of Expression!
