CPDG on the oral arguments challenging the constitutionality of the Anti-Terror Law

January 30, 2021

The oral arguments on the 37 petitions seeking the nullification of the Anti-Terrorism Law of 2020 (ATL 2020) are starting on February 2, 2021. Civil society organizations speak out on the oppressive law’s impact on development.

Rochelle Porras, Vice-President of the Council for People’s Development and Governance says the #ATL2020 is a direct attack on civic space and democracy in the Philippines. The biggest losers are the Filipino people and national development. #
