TAÑADA:  “TRITE AS IT MAY SOUND, GOV’T MUST ADDRESS THE CAUSES OF INSURGENCY”

The revival of RA 1700 will not put an end to insurgency. It is solving the causes of insurgency through peace negotiations and protection of Human Rights that will. Freedom of thought, tolerance and principled debate are essential in a democracy.  Fear is its anti-thesis and weakens democracy.

LORENZO R. TAÑADA  III
Chair, Committee on Human Rights
