“We just had an election. Guys, lay off. Let’s stop it. Do other things but don’t tinker with the structure of the government. I will not countenance it. Elected yang tao.”
Below is the open letter of Kitz Barja addressed to Pres. Duterte.
“To the President of the Philippines
We laud your magnanimity in what we perceive as extending an olive branch to Robredo.
However, we will not be able to accede to your request. This is not about you anymore sir. This is about the Constitution.
This is about the people. About us.
The rights of the people which had been trampled and exploited by a few for a very long time.
I mentioned in one of my posts that freedom of expression is not absolute. If one transgresses other rights by using this freedom then he is liable.
When will this stop sir? She can be easily be forgiven but us ordinary citizens are not?
We are subject to the strict implementation of the law while she and her allies are free to mock the very foundations of the Constitution of which many of our countrymen defended and died for.
She and her allies who threatened to shut us down in social media because of truths that are being revealed?
She who shamed us in the international community risking the future of millions because of loyalty to her party?
Leaders of her party who plundered our coffers and raped our pride and identity for years.
They have a lot to answer for. And we are patiently waiting for your administration to take action.
Please do not tell us that these things will be water under the bridge.
The wounds are very deep. There will only be national healing when they answer for their crimes.
No Mr. President. There should be no selective justice. We had enough of that.
We want to be heard.
Mabuhay ang Pilipinas.
Have a great day ahead of you sir.”
Your thoughts please!
