De Lima to militants: You have no right to hurt cops during rallies

By |


MANILA, Philippines – Militant groups have no right to hurt authorities during protest actions, Justice Secretary Leila De Lima said Tuesday.

“Walang karapatan kahit sinumang (You have no right to hurt anyone), even if you have a very valid cause. You have your right to freedom of expression, freedom of assembly but there is also abuse of rights,” De Lima told reporters.

Members of the Quezon City Police District injured in the violent rally at the National Anti-Poverty Commission met with De Lima on Tuesday.

“We were there para tingnan nang maayos ang rally nila (to maintain order) and we are the ones protecting them,” acting QCPD Director Police Superintendent Richard Albano said. “Kaya lang minsan, sumosobra naman kayo (But there are times you crossed the line).”

Albano said a complaint for physical injuries, direct assault, challenging an agent or person of authority, malicious mischief, and illegal assembly are being readied against the protesters.

De Lima advised the QCPD police members to file the case before the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office. With Mara Cepeda and Caitlin Jao

    see.. we all know that these leeches who supposedly “fighting for their rights” are the ones who also “abuse” that very right..

    for example.. nakalagay sa permit to rally nila na hanggang sa labas lang kayo pwede mag rally, payag naman sila para lang mabigyan ng permit magrally.. pero sila din ang lalabag dun sa permit na yun by marching forward, banging the gates and going inside.. tapos pag pinigilan ng mga riot police akala mo kung sinong aping api na maglulupasay sa kalsada while shouting “police brutality” kahit na itinutulak lang sila pabalik sa designated demonstration space nila stipulated sa permit..

    tapos ngayon mananakit pa ng pulis, tapos yung pobreng pulis pag gumanti si Etta Rosales naman ang ngangawa..

    these leeches should be profiled

    Eeksena si De Lima after days sa mga pangyayari. Makiramdam muna kung which side is supported by the majority of the people then lalabas siya in conformity. Sa Atimonan case ganoon na naman.

    Yang mga militanteng grupo na yan e salot lang sa lipunan. Itong mga militant group leaders na to e laging nagrereklamo na di marunong magpatakbo ng gobyerno ang mga kasalukuyang nakaupo sa pwesto, pero tignan mo, sila pa yung di kayang i-manage yung mga tao sa grupo nila na nag aamok, nambabato, at nanakit pa ng mga pulis na ginagawa lang ang kanilang trabaho. At tuwing nagrarally e laging nagvavandalize ng mga pader at kung ano mang pwedeng pagsultan ng kanilang mga reklamo. Di ba nila iniisip na pera rin ng bayan ang inaaksaya nila dahil yun rin ang ginagamit para pinturahan uli yung mga pader na sinusulatan nila? Tapos pagkatapos ng rally at may mga nakakasuhan na, asan na yung mga militant leaders? Nagtatago at mga nagsisipaghugas-kamay na.. Mga impokrito.

  • Yobhtron

    Mukhang mga sabog sa droga yun ilan sa mga protestors. Bloodsport at hindi simpleng protest rally ang tipo ng trip nila. Baka sa video effects lang pero, I swear parang may nakita ako, yun iba tulo laway pa nga habang binabalatan nila yun kawawang pulis.

    De Lima to militants: You have no right to HURT COPS during rallies… and they don’t have the right to HURT Rallyists either.
    Peaceful Assembly is the criteria.

    On the other hand, they are not legitimate rallyists, they are Stambay Protesters, mga walang magawa.

    the next time these unruly people organize a rally, pnp should prepare a water tanker and a malabanan tanker. if they force themselves in, surprise them with malabanan mixture, the other tanker will be on standby outside the gates to accommodate those who want to get rinsed.. =D

  • Tigsik

    Myopic. Very myopic moral high ground. Pffff
