Resistance



It can be defined as, "a force that tends to oppose or retard motion."

Well, with the looming materialization of the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, various resistance have upsprung.

In effect, two government websites have taken the first blow of resistance (mwss.gov.ph and http://www.bsp.gov.ph/) as seen here:

The Philippine Government has just passed a bill that effectively ends the Freedom of Expression in the Philippines.

The Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 is the most notorious act ever witnessed in the cyber-history of the Philippines, and the language of the bill is cunningly designed to make you think it only applies to individuals who are deep in cyber-technology and doesn't apply to everyone, but some part of the bill basically says it can imprison anyone who commits libel either by written messages, comments, blogs, or posts in sites such as Facebook, Twitter, or any other comment-spaces of other social media in the Internet.

New technologies give us new opportunities to connect with a lot of people not only in this country but all over the world. They can also provide us with a medium through which our political, public and even private views can have an immediate and direct impact on individuals, communities and even countries. It is just so disappointing that our government, in adopting our 80-year-old antiquated libel laws to the Cybercrime Law, again seems to have retarded our march with the rest of the world with respect to giving full force to the people's freedom of expression.

We ask for a revision of the said bill for the betterment of the Filipino denizens.

Protect our Right to Freedom of Expression!

The thing is, it's hard to take back freedom when it has already been experienced.  Now, before this gets settled and everything gets worse than it is already (for I can foresee the horrors this could bring kuno) I guess it's time for that branch of government to determine if this bill is unconstitutional or not and if it violates Article 3, Section 4

Hello - Goodbye





It has been said that everything comes in pairs.  With such premise; if one is brave enough to say Goodbye, will life reward you with a new Hello?

Thanks


At first, like most of my friends, I wanted you to be there when I am my "usual" me. You know, the happy, jolly, cheerful me.

Pandora's Box : Question #18



A little touchy and heavy question this time:


How long does it take before do you let go (of the memories, pain, laughter or even the person)?

And to my very own,
Happy Happy Birthday Tatay!
We Love You so much! ☺

Buddies Dayout


One in the afternoon, got an SMS from a high school friend inquiring if I am free.  I replied, "yes". Then a barrage of SMS followed the next thing I know, I was heading downtown to meet 'em.

We met at a mall, it's Saturday so there's traffic and lot's of people.  It took me some time to find them.  We sat on a coffee shop and talk for a bit before we decided to move to another location.



It was drizzling then it turned to full blast rain when got to the new location.
