Atty. Bruce Rivera: Trillanes Wants to Silence Free Expression on Social Media


Prominent lawyer and a well-known social media personality defending Pres. Duterte even before the election period, Atty. Bruce Villafuerte Rivera calls the attentions of netizens to support his call to be vigilant against Trillanes who wants to silence free expression on social media after he filed a case against Mocha Uson.


According to Atty. Rivera, by supporting calls for Mocha Uson to resign as PCOO Asec or for wishing her to be imprisoned is actually sending the wrong message. This is actually not an attack on Mocha Uson by Trillanes, this is an attack on social media by Trillanes who wants to silence free expression.

The San Beda lawyer reiterated his call to support Mocha Uson although she is not perfect, because it is only on social media that a positive representation of DDS could flourished, social media was able to neutralize the discussions and mainstream media is unfair to the DDS.

Atty. Rivera noted further that Sen. Trillanes is allegedly trying to silence pro-Duterte bloggers starting with Mocha while attacking anyone connected with Duterte using his immunity as shield.

Here's the Complete Statement of Atty. Bruce Rivera:

THIS IS NOT ABOUT MOCHA

Alam ko na madami sa mga kaibigan ko ang nabwibwiset kay Mocha. In the same way na madami din ang nabwibwiset sa akin na tao. Normal yan.

But by supporting calls for Mocha to resign or wishing for her to be imprisoned is actually sending the wrong message. This is not an attack on Mocha. This is an attack on social media by Trillanes who wants to silence free expression.

Guys, dito na lang tayo nakakabawi. Kontrolado nila ang mainstream media. Nakita niyo ba na nababalita ang any positive representation ng mga DDS. Wala po. Social media is able to neutralize the discussion. Nakakita ba kayo ng host ng any news program na openly pro-Duterte? May kakaunti but their content is controlled. Mainstream media is unfair to the DDS.

Trillanes is trying to silence pro-Duterte bloggers starting with Mocha while attacking anyone connected with Duterte using his immunity as shield. If he is successful in removing Mocha from the present status quo with your help because you happen not to like her, then do not blame us if there will come a time that even your blogs will be regulated and censored by bullies like Trillanes.

Hindi perfect si Mocha. Hindi naman niya sinasabing perfect siya. Alam niyo na wala ako sa inner circle of bloggers na malapit kay Mocha. Pero tayong lahat na nasa social media ang pinaglalaban namin lalo na si Mocha. Fake news man o hindi, hindi yun sapat para ipako siya sa cruz kasi walang tayong obligasyon maging exact and impartial sa mga posts natin. Blogs lang ito. Personal opinions na mali o hindi, peke o totoo. Ang mainstream media ang dapat may ganung obligasyon. At kung natutupad yun ng mainstream media, dun na sana kayo maging mapanghugsa sa mga bloggers tulad ni Mocha.

Entertainer lang siya. Bakla lang ako. Pero lahat tayo Pilipino. May sariling opinyon. Hindi news ito. Opinyon ang blog hindi news. So, kung hahayaan ninyo na magtagumpay si Trillanes na patahimikin si Mocha dahil kakasuhan at ihaharass, ipasara niyo na lang din ang social media. Kasi tayo na ang isusunod na patatahimikin.
