Nagsama-sama ang may 60 Filipino bloggers para sa karapatan ng malayang pamamahayag.
Sa kanilang inilabas na pahayag, sinabi ng mga ito na kanilang responsibilidad ay protektahan ang karapatan na ito, kasunod ng pagbawi ng Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) sa certificate of incorporation ng Rappler.
“We thus stand with Rappler, its right to exist, the rights of its working journalists and contributors, and the rights of its community of readers.
“We stand against moves to silence and scare journalists, bloggers and media practitioners just because the President and his ardent supporters dislike their news and views.
“Now is a time for making choices amid battles between truth and lies, debate and dissonance, democracy and dictatorship,” sabi nito sa pahayag. (IM)
