“Patayin ang Presidente” Freedom of Expression & Right to Speech ay Nanganganib- UP Student Publication

Kahapon ay kumalat ng husto sa social media ang video ng cheerdance ng University of the Philippines (UP) Visayas – SKIMMERS ACADEMIC ORGANIZATION kung saan may sinigaw na linyang “Lets Kill This President” ang mga kalahok. Nang dahil sa paandar ng mga estudyante, hindi napigilan ng mga taga-suporta ng Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte na kastiguhin ang mga kasali sa cheerdance.

Ngayon ay sumisigaw ng harassment ang UP Visayas – University Student Council (UPV-USC) dahil nakararanas daw ng ng pang-aatake ang ilang miyembro ng Skimmers mula sa mga sumusuporta sa Pamahalaan. Ayon sa student council, inilabas daw ng ilang pro-Duterte social media pages ang personal information ng Skimmers Governor and Skimmers adviser.

Ang palusot student council, “satirical” lang daw ang linya laban kay Duterte.

“The line’s satirical nature did not sit well with Duterte supporters as they took their threats and harassment to Facebook and launched different attacks against Skimmers and its cheerers. These threats are made more pressing and credible as the pages and groups supporting Duterte publicized some personal information of the Skimmers Governor and Skimmers adviser, making them a target,” sabi ng UPV-USC.

Ayon naman sa Pagbutlak, ang official student publication ng UPV’s College of Arts and Sciences, ang diumano’y ‘atake’ na natatanggap ng ilang miyembro ng skimmers ay banta sa freedom of expression at right to speech.

“We in Pagbutlak vehemently condemn the handiwork of the regime’s minions. Such handiwork seriously threatens established freedom of expression and right to speech of citizens under our Constitution.,” boladas ng Pagbutlak.

Naririto po ang reaksyon ng ilang netizens sa pangangatwiran at pagrereklamo ng Pagbutlak.

“You have crossed the line, you have abused the right to expression, considering you are a state college, and we the working, taxpaying citizen should talk back to you like this, “HOW DARE YOU” We are supporting you by the taxes we pay and yet you just waste them, you do not deserve to be scholars,” sabi ni J. Cruz.

“We were praying na this time patulan na kau ng admin nato and inconsider ang inciting to sedition. This is awfully wrong. You wish ill para sa mismong presidente that get the 87% approval of the masses.. ay teka ang mass nga pla nirerepresenta nyo? Mga pota kau,” sabi ni M. Jay.
