Asia’s basic freedoms fall short of international standards

Asia’s basic freedoms fall short of international standards

Too many restrictions and not enough promotion of rights

There is a general lacuna in legal and institutional protection for freedom of assembly and expression in many Asian countries.

Most Asian countries emphasize restrictions rather than the promotion of freedoms.

Forum Asia, a regional human rights organization based Bangkok, found that Maldives, for instance, defines “assembly” as a gathering of two or more people expressing opinion or dissent.

Halimbawa Lamang (Ang Pilipinas ang Palestine)

Halimbawa kung noong 1948, ay Pilipinas ang pinili na lugar para magmigrate ang milyon na Jews mula europe na biktima ng persecution at holocaust.. papayag ba kayo?

Katulad ng mga Palestinians papayag siguro tayo, dahil maawin din tayo.

Halimbawa dahil nakaplano pala silang mang-agaw at sa dami na ng jews na pumasok ay dahan-dahan na nila tayong tinataboy, at inaangkin ang ating lupain at ari-arian. at ang ayaw aalis ay papatayin, bata, matanda at mga babae katulad ng ginawa nila sa deir yassin massacre?

Halimbawa dahil hindi natin napaghandaan (dahil hindi natin alam na ang pagiging refugee pala ay balatkayo lamang pero ang totoong plano ng mga Jews ay agawin ang bansa natin) natalo tayo sa civil war at buong Pilpinas ay inangkin nila.

Pasasalamat at Papuri sa Nag-iisang Tagapaglikha dahil binibigyan Nya tayo ng puso at isipan para sa kabutihan, katotohanan, katarungan at pagkamakatarungan.

Ang listahan sa baba ay ang kinilala nating Tunay na OFW Community.

Hindi sila yong mga grupo na kumikita sa mga nakulekta na fees mula sa mga members na napaniwala nila na kung magkaproblema ay protektado dahil malakas ang kanilang grupo sa embahada. Hindi sila yon!

Ang nasa listahan natin ay walang intention para sa sarili. Sa halip sila ang humuhugot mula sa sarili nilang mga bulsa para makakatulong sa OFW na nangangailangan.

Life in Basilan
by Susan Ople
First posted in susanople.com

I read a news story about South Sudan. Warring political factions have resorted to excessive violence, sparing no one even those in the intensive critical unit of a hospital. They shot hospital patients dead and even razed an entire hospital to the ground. It was brutal, the doctors who were on duty, said.

Stories such as these should serve as a reminder on how fortunate we Filipinos are. While peace and order remains a major concern, we are still able to freely go around and stay out late, as long as we know how to take care of ourselves.

This has not always been the case for Nurkisa Alidain, a resident of Lamitan, Basilan. Fifty-year old Nur works as assistant to the provincial administrator in the provincial capitol. I met Nur during a summit of civil society organizations on the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro and its Annexes held in Davao City.
