Kabataan party-list joins protest against Anti-Terror Bill: ‘Youth will not be silenced’

The grand protest in the University of the Philippines in Quezon City dubbed as Mañanita laban sa Tiraniya” was attended by no less than the Kabataan party-list.

“For this year’s End Dependence Day, we heed to the call of the people against Duterte’s new and worst terror law and towards a truly independent and sovereign nation,” Kabataan Partylist Rep. Sarah Elago said.

“As the Pag-Asa ng Bayan, we collectively march with the broad masses to condemn the Duterte’s terror law and the foreign interventions, and to expose Duterte administration’s betrayal to the people,” the Makabayan bloc solon said.

“We louden the call to end dependence on foreign powers and break free from Duterte’s fascist dictatorship. We will continue to live the spirit of the Philippine revolution by carrying on with the fight for genuine national independence and sovereignty!” she said.
Elago even said tht the country is rich but “its people suffer under various neoliberal policies which exploit our natural resources and our labor force.”
“The Philippines does not need to depend on the United States nor China to solve the systemic roots of poverty in the country; in fact, these countries are the primary reasons why our people suffer,” she said.

She slams the Duterte administration because while we are in a global pandemic brought by the novel coronavirus or COVID-19 “we have persistently called for a comprehensive, effective, humane, and participatory approach to Covid-19, but we are met with a draconian, disproportionate and discriminatory response instead,” the Kabataan partylist rep.said.
“At present, a number of youth and students are already being ruthlessly targeted and vilified for exercising their right to protest abuses, incompetence, and unequal application of the law,” she said.

“This crackdown on dissent against the backdrop of the worsening climate of impunity poses danger not only to voices, but also the very lives of those who are speaking up for the voiceless,” Elago said.
