Bill of Rights: The 1987 Constitution of the Republic of the Philippines

The Philippines is the first Republic in Asia.  We are perhaps one of the most democratic countries in the world.  I do believe that this democracy will ensue as stated in the Bill of Rights of the 1987 Constitution.

THE 1987 CONSTITUTION
OF THE
REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES

ARTICLE III
BILL OF RIGHTS

Section 4.  No law shall be passed abridging the freedom of speech, of expression, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances.

ANG 1987 KONSTITUSYON
NG
REPUBLIKA NG PILIPINAS

ARTIKULO III
KATIPUNAN NG MGA KARAPATAN

Seksyon 4.  Hindi dapat magpatibay ng batas na nagbabawas sa kalayaan sa pananalita, pagpapahayag, o ng pamamahayagan, o sa karapatan ng mga taong-bayan na mapayapang magkatipon at magpetisyon sa pamahalaan upang ilahad ang kanilang mga karaingan.

Democracy Online

The United Nations has ruled that Internet access is a basic human right that should be guaranteed and protected by states, and “affirms that the same rights that people have offline must also be protected online, in particular freedom of expression, which is applicable regardless of frontiers and through any media of one’s choice.”
