In what they fear the coming of a new dictatorship in the country, Diokno reminded “ang paulit-ulit na pinatunayan—at paulit-ulit na patutunayan—ng mga Pilipino: #DiTayoPasisiil!”
“Duterte’s Anti-Terror Law will terrorize our democracy, not the terrorists,” Diokno also warned.
Even if the said measure is already signed as a law, he still calls for its amendments.

He also urges the public that if petitions have already been filed in the Supreme Court questioning its constitutionality, the public should be vigilant in the development of the case.

Senator Pangilinan’s statement regarding the signing into law of the Anti-Terrorism Act

“Hindi tinutugunan ng anti-terror law ang problema ng sakit at gutom dulot ng pandemya ngunit sapilitang itong isinusubo sa taumbayan. Basura ang pilit na isinusubo sa taumbayan,” Pangilinan said. “Dapat ibasura ang walang kuwentang batas na ito at handa tayong kwestyunin ang constitutionality ng batas na ito sa Korte Suprema.”
“I am not surprised. From Day 1 this Administration unleashed draconian and authoritarian measures as a showcase of its brand of leadership. These draconian measures however have been exposed as nothing more than a show of senseless, mindless violence as means to sow fear amongst the people. From the murderous drug war, to the longest martial law in Mindanao, to the longest lockdown in the world, and now to the anti-terror law,” Senator Kiko said.


“The drug war has not nailed big-time drug lords and drugs still flow after 4 years. Martial law in Mindanao has failed to address the reconstruction of Marawi. The longest lockdown has not addressed the continuing spread of COVID. Patunay lahat ito na hindi kamay na bakal ang solusyon sa ating mga problema,” he added.
