we are men. a cautionary tale we are meant to make you afraid. right so i appeal again. don't be afraid because if you don't use your rights you will lose them if we don't tolerate a brazen move to try to roll back the rights guaranteed in the constitution we will lose them. as more from outside the court. this is not the 1st time though and not the only case that journalists are facing as you know just over a month ago the biggest media network was shut down a b a c.b.s. also was shut down because of its failure to renew its license there was also another broad sheet that was also threatened to be closed so no the united nations
all of the rights organizations have called this of course a dark day in journalism but this is not new this is been going on for the last 4 years although there is no official reaction again from the philippine government that the support from the office of the president you know many many actually believe that this has been the case simply because there has basically which the war against journalists by calling them feet fuse for the previous statement he made a few years ago that some journalists do this serve to be killed so right now at this point maria ressa still at her press conference she's sharing her sentiments with other journalists a lot of people say they continue to support maria they think that this is the 1st time that basically cyber libel was weaponized it was something that was passed during the previous administration but a lot of rights groups over the past few years have actually been calling on the government to decriminalize libel they worry though that the case of maria despite being prominent actually has a greater impact to lesser known community journalists who may not have the same
gravitas who will feel intimidated every time they write a story every time they write they speak truth to power every time they face bigger challenges and go out against powerful people with robertson as deputy director of human rights watch she says the vote expects a dangerous precedent for journalism in the philippines. the verdict actually highlights the ability of penes abusive president rodney got to tear to dominant manipulate laws to go after critical well respected media voices and whatever the cost of the country we think that the government should reverse this verdict we think they should squash it and they should you know step back and unfortunately what we're seeing is part of a well played out plan by the government to try as maria ressa said very clearly to shut them down and to make them a cautionary tale to other journalists in the philippines who would dare criticize the president if you look at this case here in front of us what happened was there
was an article published was based in part on government documents it was published for months before the cyber criminal law came onto the books there was one change in the article afterwards after the law was in effect to especially fix a typo and the philippines department of justice were encouraging the president went out went to the private litigant and said look you you should sue and came up with an entire new legal theory of continuous publication to enable this to happen i mean this is a targeted hit it was a private petitioner but it really the government's behind it the death of a black man at the hands of police in the u.s. city of atlanta has been treated as a homicide an autopsy has revealed 27 year old rae shon brooks died from 2 gunshot wounds to the back after a struggle with offices on friday the killing a spot more protests and the police brutality on the gallatin reports after
