Pinoy journos sumama sa petisyon vs Anti-Terror Act

NAGHAIN ng petisyon ang ilang grupo ng Filipino journalists at mga mamamahayag sa Korte Suprema laban sa Anti-Terror Act (ATA).
 
Kabilang sa mga grupo ang Freedom for Media, Freedom for All network, at 17 news organizations at 79 journalists, sa lumahok sa dumaraming umaalma laban sa ATA dahil ang mga probisyon ay yumuyurak anila sa “fundamental freedoms, including the freedom of the press.”
 
Sa ika-13 petisyon inihain laban sa ATA, nagbabala ang mga journalist at artist na ang ATA ay magpapalala sa red-tagging.
 
“The ATA will not succeed in reducing the threat of terrorism with over-reaching prohibitions on expressive as well as political freedoms. It will reduce this country to a field of submissive and unquestioning individuals, to be herded like by sheep by the police and military.”
 
“As the law fails to provide a clear definition of terrorism and is vague about what constitutes acts of terrorism, Section 9 could make media practitioners vulnerable to wrongful charges and arrests, producing a chilling effect on all media practice,” anila. (ROSE NOVENARIO)
