My warmest congratulations to the Far Eastern Law Review in publishing your 47th Volume entitled “Ruling the Sovereignty and Limiting Inteference”.
Your publication serve as a venue to these challenging times under the Duterte regime.
Without access to any electronic gadget and communication device, the written word is my only weapon while in detention. In these challenging times where the government aims to silence dissent, my pen and paper help me express my thoughts on important issues and share my feelings about my current situation.
As a law students and practitioner, it is clear to us violate our Constitution. It is our duty to speak out and stand up for human rights
We need to guide and enlighten our fellow Filipinos with the necessary knowledge and true information to empower them to choose the right path.
