PIFA to SC: “You missed your opportunity to champion Internet Freedom”
February 21, 2014   

PIFAdotPHThe Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld the majority of the provisions of the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 (RA 10175) despite the petition of the Philippine Internet Freedom Alliance (PIFA) to junk the law for being contrary to the democratic values and rights of the sovereign Filipino people.

PIFA expresses regret for the Supreme Court for having missed the chance to become champions of internet freedom. Although reserving the right to allow the high court to reconsider RA 10175 as Cyber Martial Law, PIFA must now shift its advocacy to the arena of Congress to get legislators to repeal RA10175.

PIFA is flabbergasted at the retention of the cyberlibel provision . This repressive encroachment on the freedom of expression propagates a chilling effect across cyberspace, muting or outright silencing dissent and discourse on public matters. Foisting the threat of prison sentences for cyberlibel – increased from four years to ten years imprisonment – is contrary to the global trend to decriminalize libel.

In 2012, President Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III even told the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines (FOCAP) that he was considering the global trend to decriminalize libel. During the oral arguments, Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio pointed out that no less than the United Nations Human Rights Committee has called the attention of the Philippine government to amend its laws to remove libel from its criminal statutes.

Unchecked corruption violates human rights

In solidarity with the people’s outrage against PDAF

And all forms of corruption and corruptive practices

August 26, 2013

 

A government’s ability to respect, protect and fulfil human rights – social, cultural, political,  economic and civil - will ultimately be defined by the levels and systemic nature of corruption in those States. -United Nations Convention Against Corruption

Fighting corruption is central to the struggle for human rights.

pahra_logo_copyGovernment’s capability to implement the human rights obligations to its constituency, without transparency and accountability, is eroded if not restricted or blocked by the degree of corruption which its governors are unable or unwilling to stop.  Corruption must be linked to human rights.

Unchecked corruption violates human rights.  The perpetuation of corruption diminishes the possibilities  of a quality of life worthy of human dignity for thousands if not millions of Filipinos.

The Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates thus unites with the people’s outrage against the command conspiracy of state and non-state actors to plunder of  Napoles-ian scale and style the people’s money ear-marked in the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) for  the welfare and upliftment of people, particularly of people living in poverty and of the vulnerable sectors;
