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 law ever witnessed in cyber-history, 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 parts of the bill basically say the government 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 social media in the Internet. It effectively gives the Philippine government the ability to totally censor anyone for virtually anything they don't like.

Greetings World --

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 law ever witnessed in cyber-history, 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 parts of the bill basically say the government 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 social media in the Internet. It effectively gives the Philippine government the ability to totally censor anyone for virtually anything they don't like.

New technologies give us new opportunities to connect with a lot of people not only in the Philippines 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 the government of the Philippines, in adapting 80-year-old antiquated libel laws to Cybercrime Law - again seems to have hindered our march with the rest of the world with respect to giving full force to the people's freedom of expression.

We demand for a revision of the said bill for the betterment of the Filipino citizens. Until this demand is met, you can expect to face massive protests on the ground - and continued cyber-attacks on all of your web assets. Anonymous Pilipinas has already defaced, downed - and data-dumped over a dozen mostly government web sites in the Philippines.
This onslaught will continue and will increase in intensity until this law is either amended or revoked.

We Are Anonymous

We Are Everywhere

We Are Legion

We Do Not Forgive

We Do Not Forget

Government of the Philippines, it is to late to Expect Us.
