STOP CYBER MARTIAL LAW!The Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 or Republic Act No. 10175 threatens our basic rights and freedoms.

At 10 am, we assemble at the Padre Faura entrance of Robinsons Manila.At 10:30 am, with our central banner saying STOP CYBER MARTIAL LAW and our mouths covered with black tape (to be provided by PIFA), we march to the Supreme Court. Everyone is encouraged (but not required) to bring black cartolina or placards/signs that are all black, signifying the silencing of free speech.At 11 am, we read our Unity Statement in front of the Supreme Court to let the three branches of our government and the Filipino nation know why this law should be stopped.Join us netizens, and STOP CYBER MARTIAL LAW!For inquiries, please text Kenneth Keng at 0915 790 00 18, or send him a Facebook private message at https://www.facebook.com/kenneth.keng.3

    They are pushing for the cyber crime law to go against the regular people, what about the transparency bill that they wanted trashed so that they are not obliged to show us how they spend the “kaban ng bayan”.

    Our retarded senators pushed this law so they could postponed the RH Bill.. This was all part of there delaying tactics!! But most of all this is bcoz Sotto got cyber bullied, well to sotto you’re such a cry baby… and BTW.. I Fucked you mom Sotto!! >=3

    To all the Senators who participate the approval of the Republic Act No. 10175,
    why don’t you first solve the problems about poverty, corruption, and the health of the masses instead of passing this stupid law. This move is probably to divert our attentions at the transparency bill, and RH bill, why don’t you just F*CKIN6 stop what your doing, think of what the Filipino peoples really need, and to do that instead?.

    Everyone knows that you the senators and the government are the only one who will benefit to this, where is the freedom of expression?, when no one or anyone can’t express their thoughts, and opinions?,
    THIS WILL EVENTUALLY END LIKE S.O.P.A., will fly with full colors for sometime and crash with heads first.

    All over the world it seems to be the same type of problems: freedom of speech versus censorship in the name of security. Nowadays the users of the internet become automatically involved in major political struggles. Maybe this whole question is an international one about the general future of the world wide web. Not only in the Republic of the Philippines but in every country of the world. The web is growing. We are growing. And some questions need to be answered.
