Local celebrities, filmmakers, media practitioners, politicians, artists, activists, and more have joined forces to condemn the controversial Anti-Terrorism Law in a powerful video.
KAMI learned that the public figures narrated a Filipino version of “The Great Dictator Speech” by Charlie Chaplin.
A video posted by Voyage Studios on Facebook has been circulating on social media. The video started with the famous actor John Llyod Cruz.
“Kinalulungkot ko, pero ayoko maging diktador. Hindi iyan ang gusto ko. Ayokong mamuno o manakop ng kahit sino,” he said.
He was joined by other artists like Janine Gutierrez, Lotlot De Leon, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Iza Calzado, Agot Isidro, and Glaiza De Castro. Opposition figures like Chel Diokno, Samira Gutoc, Senators Risa Hontiveros and Kiko Pangilinan were also in the video.
The remarkable speech was translated by writer Rody Vera and it was directed by Chuck Gutierrez.
The main goal of the video is to unite Filipinos to fight for democracy and to oppose the Anti-Terrorism Law.
The Anti-Terrorism Law faced many criticisms from the netizens and local institutions because of its alleged “unconstitutional” provisions.
The controversial bill was signed into law by President Rodrigo Duterte last July 3, 2020. It was announced by Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque.
Kapuso actor Dingdong Dantes also led a group of actors called “AKTOR – League of Filipino actors that aims to take a stand on relevant issues in the society that threatens the creative freedom of speech and expression.
