A country to win

With regime change can come the restoration of the rule of law and the democratic space that have been eroded and restricted by the provincial despotism that has been despoiling this country and its people since 2016. The return of some measure of civility in politics and governance is another possibility. There are as well the increased chances of ending the pandemic and reviving the economy. And, most of all, is the likely recovery of the rights to free expression and press freedom on which true journalism thrives, and without which authentic change is next to impossible.

Freedom-Loving Filipinos Stand With Myanmar Demonstrators

It is absolutely shameful that the country that gave the world the People Power revolution now stands mute as the Tatmadaw, Myanmar's military junta, trample on its citizens' freedoms and human rights. Democracies across the globe have begun to voice their concerns. Even our more enlightened neighbors like Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore repeatedly urge ASEAN to act and condemn the violence. But from the Philippines, we have so far heard nothing. Why?
