Philippine Network of Food Security Programmes on ATL

January 26, 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.

The Philippine Network of Food Security Programmes says the ATL 2020 will legitimize attacks on NGOs and may derail their socio-economic programs. .
