Strike Revilla: Free speech has corresponding responsibility

Feb 13, 2018 @ 16:47

Cavite 2nd District Representative Strike Revilla reminded Caviteños that freedom of expression has a corresponding responsibility.

The cavite politiko, in his Abante column, said free speech is enshrined in the 1987 Constitution.

Revilla said free speech is a hallmark of a democratic society like the Philippines.

He also said that the proliferatio of “fake news” is not a new phenomenon.

“Matagal na ang fake news, ngunit kilala lamang ito sa iba’t-ibang tawag noon. bago ang social media, ‘tsismis’ ito sa palengke; ‘usapang lasing’ sa inuman; ‘kuwentong barbero’ sa barberya; at ‘ungguyan’ sa magkakabarkada,” Revilla said.

“Ngunit huwag po nating kalimutan, mga kababayan, kaakibat ng ating mga karapatan ang responsibilidad hindi lamang sa ating sarili kung hindi sa ating kapwa. Maging mapanuri, sensitibo, at responsable tayo sa salita at sa gawa, at isiping mabuti ang kahihinatnan ng ating mga desisyon,” he added.
