Nakisali na rin si international pop superstar Taylor Swift sa mga nananawagan na ibasura ang anti-terrorism bill na isnusulong ni Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte.
Magugunita na sinertipikahan bilang “urgent” ni Pangulong Duterte ang panukala nitong nagdaang mga araw.
Sa kanyang instagram account nay may 133 million followers, nagbahai si Swift ng impormasyon tungkol sa panukalang batas na mayroon pang hastag na #JunkTerrorBill, #MassTestingNowPH and #OustDuterte.
“When you’re done: Educate yourself. This doesn’t go away once the topic isn’t trending,” sabi pa sa kanyang Instagram Stories.
Nilinaw na ni Department of National Defense (DND) Secretary Delfin Lorenzana na may patakaran ang anti-terrorism bill para maiwasan ang pang-aabuso. At ang karamihan daw sa umaaraynasabing panukala ay mga komunista o leftists.
“What these detractors, mostly Reds and their allies, have done is to pick some provisions and add their own interpretations to scare people. People need not fear. The proposed law has safeguards of civil liberties and sanctions to law enforcement agencies… This bill was deliberated lengthily by both Houses and all sectors were invited as resource persons during these deliberations. All sides were heard… My comment on those opposing this measure is that their opposition is baseless as there are sufficient provisions protecting people’s rights and there are penalties and punishments for law enforcers caught abusing the law. Our people have nothing to fear,” sabi ni Lorenzana.
