Martial Law is back!!! - Robredo

Martial Law is back!!! - Robredo

Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo has just concluded that martial law is back in the country.

The Vice President did not think twice in having that conclusion amidst the so called fear that it might creep in under the administration of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

Robredo has always made it known that she is against the martial rule and the alleged impunity under the current administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.

She has cited that news today are the very same ones that have been plaguing the nation since the 1970’s under former President Ferdinand Marcos.

“Kasi tingnan natin iyong mga balita ngayon. Kapag nagbasa tayo ng diyaryo, pinag-uusapan iyong pagha-harass sa mga members ng media na nagkakaroon ng lakas ng loob na i-call out iyong pamahalaan,” the VP said.

“Iyong pinag-uusapan, iyong threats na mawalan ng scholarships iyong mga estudyante. Iyong pinag-uusapan, iyong threat na ipapakulong. Iyong pinag-uusapan, mga patayan (We are discussing the threat to our students who may lose their scholarship. We are discussing the issues on killings),” Robredo noted.

Robredo base it on facts.

The Vice President claims that all of her conclusion is base on the fact that there has been continued threats against mediamen  and critics and the alleged killing of thousands due to the government’s war on illegal drugs.

“Parang time warp tayo, nandoon ulit tayo sa panahon noong dictatorship. Iyong mga pinag-uusapan ngayon, iyon din iyong pinag-usapan many years ago, at akala natin hindi na babalik iyong ganitong kultura sa atin, pero bumalik na naman,” she added.

This same sentiment is shared by former President Benigno Aquino III, when in a recent speaking engagement he said that he feels that the country is making a u-turn back to martial law.

He backs up his pronouncement when President Duterte moves to re-create a Department of Human Settlements and the proposal to change the current name of the country to “Maharlika.”
