PH is like Nazi Germany due to Anti-Terror Law - Youth leaders


The Supreme Court (SC) has been quoted a few weeks back that it will welcome all parties who would to question the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020.

And it seems the petitions questioning the law’s constitutionality will still be increasing in the coming more days, as a youth group mostly members of the Sangguniang Kabataan(SK) filed a petition asking the Supreme Court (SC) to declare as “null and void” the Anti-Terrorism Law which they likened to Adolf Hitler’s Reichstag Fire Decree that suppressed key civil liberties of Germans and led to the creation of Nazi Germany.

“Like Germany did in 1933 when it enacted the Reichstag Fire Decree, this country now stands on perilous grounds,” read the petition.

This group explains that the German decree was issued following the burning of the Reichstag or the parliament building in Berlin which, though the origin of the fire remains unknown, Hitler cited as evidence of communist plot to overthrow the government.

“The decree was sweeping in terms of the rights it curtailed -due process, free expression, freedom of the press, the right of assembly and association, privacy of communication, and the protection from warrantless arrests and searches, and other restrictions of liberty – all done to prevent acts of ‘terrorism’ across Germany,” they said.

The petitioners likens the Anti-Terrorism Act to the “the Reichstag Fire Decree.”

“The enforcement of RA 11479 necessarily involves a direct and unequivocal violation of constitutional safeguards. So long as it is in effect, this law maintains an atmosphere of fear – the proverbial ‘chilling effect’ – that deters the free and full exercise of fundamental rights. Thus, the law poses a danger not just for collective and individual rights, but for democracy as a whole,” they stated.
