From Ping Lacson to Judy Taguiwalo “Do you renounce violence” … Judy must have been gripped by stage fright. She could not provide a straightforward answer. This is an easy question… We discuss this on the first day of classes in intro to the constitution and intro to constitutional law as an intro to media law. There’s even a podcast here. (We even discuss the Katipunan-led Revolution in discussing the origins of the Constitution). To Prof. Judy (and Ka Paeng, baka po itanong din sa iyo) : Quote the Cartilla ng Katipunan, quote the Declaration of Independence, even the American Declaration of Independence recognizes the sovereign right of the people to overthrow an oppressive regime.  Quote Apolinario Mabini, quote Lopez Jaena.

     “Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends (life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness), it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it (an oppressive government) and to institute a new government… ”   (Declaration of Independence) Or quote po  the Cartilla ng Katipunan nga. Or Emilio Jacinto, etc.  

     Napakadali pong sagutin. Very easy question.
