HUMAN SECURITY ACT PUTS LEADERS OF GABRIELA NETWORK-USA ON RP
GABRIELA Women's Partylist Representative Liza Largoza Maza deplored
the Philippine government's hold departure order against GABRIELA
Network USA chairperson Dr. Analisa Enrile and two other leaders of
the women's international solidarity group.
"She has been restricted from going home to her family and her job
in the United States for no apparent reason. This blatant violation
of her right to travel, is but pure harassment, a sample
demonstration of the horrendous powers that this government can
abuse with the Human Security Act," said Maza in a press conference
with Dr. Analisa Enrile. Joining them are two of the founders of
GABRIELA Network, award winning novelist Ninotchka Rosca and human
rights advocate Judith Mirkinson.
Enrile who was scheduled to leave the country Aug. 5, was not
allowed to leave as her name was allegedly on a watchlist released
by the Department of Justice, Bureau of Immigration and Deportation,
National Intelligence Coordinating Agency and the Armed Forces of
the Philippines. Along with Enrile, both Rosca and Mirkinson are
also on the reported watchlist. All three were also part of the
organizers of the All-women US Lawyer's Human Rights Mission in the
Philippines last year during the height of the implementation of the
Presidential Proclamation 1017.
"They are now among the first batch of victims of the Human Security
Act. Before this law, one can be prevented from leaving the country
only if you have committed a crime and there are charges already
filed against you. Now, what this demonstrates is that on mere
suspicion or by your mere association to a group identified as a
staunch critic of this administration, such as GABRIELA, you can be
held against your will," said Maza.
Leaders and members of the GABRIELA Network USA were in the country
since July to attend the Women's International Solidarity Affair in
the Philippines sponsored by the militant women's group GABRIELA.
"The Human Security Act has emboldened the Anti-Terrorism Council to
politically harass critics, spreading its repressive tentacles
beyond borders and undermining the universally held principle of
GABRIELA Women's Party representatives Maza and Luz Ilagan along
with other partylist groups Bayan Muna and Anakpawis have filed a
bill to repeal the Human Security Act.#
