  • July 8th: Global Day of Action Against Duterte’s Anti-Terror Law!
    “When human rights are under attack, what do we do? Stand up! Fight back!” Greetings, Defenders of Democracy! As many of you already know, President Duterte signed the Anti-Terror Law this past July 3rd, ushering in a new dark era for democracy and civil liberties in the Philippines. Despite the widespread criticism and concern from legal experts and renown human rights organizations, Duterte has chosen, yet again, the way of brutality and authoritarian rule by enacting a law that threatens to institutionalize his Martial Law-style dictatorship and place a chilling effect on the practice of democratic rights and constitutional freedoms.Continue reading
  • Power to the People! Oppose Duterte’s Terror!
    OFFICIAL STATEMENT July 3, 2020 Malaya Movement condemns in the strongest possible terms the passage of Duterte’s reprehensible Anti-Terror Law he signed on July 3rd in the Philippines. Republic Act 11479 or “The Anti-Terror Act of 2020” plunges the nation into further danger, posing a serious threat to human rights defenders who have long been critical of the government’s bloody drug war, attacks on press freedom, and crackdown on opposition and dissent.

Even ahead of the enactment of the Anti-Terror Bill into law, fascism runs wild in the streets wearing fatigues and combat boots.  Just hours ago, Bahaghari (rainbow in Tagalog), conducted a peaceful Pride protest to oppose discrimination and violence against the LGBTQ community, as well as the Anti-Terror Bill. As seen clearly inContinue reading

  • A Grave Concern and Imminent Threat
    OFFICIAL STATEMENT June 10, 2020 A Grave Concern and Imminent Threat: Malaya Movement Statement on Anti-Terror Bill Last week, as the House of Representatives in the Philippines fast-tracked the approval of HB 6875, otherwise known as the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020, we in the Malaya Movement see this is as a cause for grave concern and an imminent threat to civil and democratic rights in the Philippines. Our main worries for the threat the bill poses lie in the overly broad definitions of “terrorism”, the specter of a police state, and the implications for Filipinos abroad. Overly Broad Definitions ofContinue reading
