The National Union of Peoples’ Lawyers is asking the public to remain vigilant when it comes to the indefinite temporary suspension of the Cybercrime Law:

As the Supreme Court indefinitely suspends the Anti-Cybercrime Law, the public must remain vigilant and critical about the dangers of the law, the manner it was approved, and on the overall, the stubborn position demonstrated by the Aquino administration in crafting it. We as human rights lawyers maintain that there is a need to remain firm, steadfast, and even-tempered in our victory today in order to guard against any further breaches and violations of the people’s right to freedom of speech and expression.
