Statement on the filing of the Magna Carta for Philippine Internet Freedom Senate Bill No. 53 |

This extract with regard to cyber-security was important to post ,as it was written on the site:

We of Democracy.Net.PH believe that this overwhelmingly positive response to the filing of the #MCPIF is undeniable proof that there is a clamour among Filipinos for progressive legislation on Philippine cyberspace and the information and communications technology (ICT) sector. We strongly urge our legislators from both houses of the 16th Congress to heed this call and enact a law that will safeguard our civil and political rights online and harness the power of ICT for governance, development, and security.

We further see this response as a clear signal to the Supreme Court that the people view the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 (RA 10175) as a knee-jerk, discredited piece of legislation that must be struck down. We trust that the Supreme Court will have the wisdom to give our legislators a chance to enact a well-crafted law that promotes rights, governance, development, and security, both online and offline.
