Sotto slams critics: Sinong gaqo nagsabing activism is terrorism?

The Anti-Terrorism Act is now a very controversial law not because of its implementation but because of the different personalities ang group that are against it becoming a law.
A lot of information both legit and fake have been flooding the different social media platforms regarding the said law, which has been already submitted to Malacanang awaiting the signature of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte,

One of its principal author in the Senate is Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III which did not held back his opinion against those who are criticizing the Anti-Terrorism Act which they say will pave the way for targeting activists.

In an exclusive interview with AM radio DZBB (June 8), the Senate President said: “Hindi naman talaga terrorism ang activism. Sinong gago na nagsabi na activism is terrorism?”
The Senate President said the bill does not target government critics, but terrorists.
“Dapat member ka ng terrorist organization. Member ka ba? Hindi pala eh, bakit ka umaangal? Kung hindi kayo member, magwala kayo, murahin niyo ang Presidente, laitin niyo kami, go ahead, hindi kayo kasama sa Anti-Terror law. Puwede libel, defamation, pero hindi sa Anti-Terrorism law,” he said.

Sotto also addressed those critics who have been calling out the government in giving priority to the Anti-Terrorism bill instead of the much needed policies addressing poverty in the nation most especially now that there is a COVID-19 pandemic, as those who are living in a “perfect world.”
“Mali ‘yun [na dapat sugpuin ang kahirapan at kawalan katarungan sa paglaban ng terorista]. They want to live in a perfect world. Hindi naman ‘yun ang problema ng terorista eh. Ang problema ng terrorista, ideology. Ang tinatarget ng Anti-Terror bill ay yung ideolohiya na guluhin ang gobyerno,” he said.
