On July 15, the Human Security Act of 2007 (HSA) — also known as the Anti-Terrorism Law — took effect. While its proponents claim it will protect peace and order, its critics have raised concerns on its possible implications for civil liberties and other rights enshrined in the Constitution.
The Free Jonas Burgos Movement (FJBM) invites friends in the cultural sector and the media to a forum on the HSA and its possible effects on the work of artists, writers, and journalists on Saturday, July 21, 5 p.m . at Conspiracy Bar and Garden Cafe along Visayas Avenue,.
Speakers include JL, brother of missing peasant leader Jonas Joseph Burgos; and National Artist for Literature Bienvenido Lumbera.
