FB account ng spokesman, chief of staff sinuspinde

ITO ay sensura o censorship na pinakamataas na uri at panghihimasok sa isang sovereign act, isang digital terrorism na.”

Ito ang pahayag ngayong Martes ni Atty Victor Rodriguez, chief of staff at spokesman ni presidential frontrunner Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. matapos isuspinde ang kanyang Facebook account dahil sumusuporta siya kay Marcos.

“Hindi ako aapela dahil wala akong nilabag. Ang aking tungkulin ay sa sambayanang Pilipino at hindi sa FB/Meta,” ani Rodriguez.

Dagdag niya na patuloy siyang magpapalabas ng kanyang pahayag o makikipag-communicate sa pamamagitan ng iba pang uri media na walang salaan, sensura o manipulation mula sa banyagang platform providers.

Narito ang buong pahayag ni Rodriguez:

“FB/Meta suspended my account because I am for Bongbong Marcos.

This action is censorship of the highest degree and interference on a sovereign act, digital terorrism no less.

I will not appeal for I have not violated anything. My duty is to the Filipino people and not to FB/Meta. I will continue communicating with the many other forms of media avaialable that are free from foreign platform providers.”

Samantala, sa isa pang pahayag, nagpasalamat din si Rodriguez sa mga sumuporta sa pakikipaglaban para sa malayang pamamahayag o freedom of expression ng mga Pilipino.

Narito ang kanyang “Statement of Gratitude”:

“It is with great honor that I commend the media, lawmakers, social media influencers and other personalities for making a firm stand on, and fighting for, the Filipinos’ freedom of expression, a basic freedom enshrined in the Philippine Constitution and in all the laws of the land.

For standing behind my cause against Meta’s suspension of my account.

Indeed, we shall allow no usurper to trample upon this basic Filipino right, inked by the very bond of our forefathers and scribed in the national soul.

Let this unanimous howl of protest serve as a warning to those who mistakenly think Filipinos will simply take sitting down abuses that tend to suppress this very foundation if our hard-earned democracy.

Filipinos may be patient and extremely tolerant as a people, and we may be broken down to our knees but we keep on standing; we can be threatened with a thousand deaths but we persist to exist; and we can be hurt to the hilt but we can never be silenced.

Those who wish ill of us can shove us into the darkest dark for all they want, but even darkness has eyes and we shall see through the deceptions, the oppressions, the lies and the maneuverings.”
