Rappler+ Webinar: Implications of the anti-terrorism bill
The proposed Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020 is now up for Duterte’s signature.
Human rights advocates have warned that the bill can be used to silence government critics. Filipinos also rejected the proposal through posts with the hashtag #JunkTerrorBill online. ([PODCAST] Mapanganib ang anti-terror bill para sa lahat ng Filipino)
