List of Congressmen Who Voted Against P1,000 CHR Budget Now Dubbed "32 Heroes"


The House of Representatives decide to give just P1,000 as the national budget of the Commission on Human Rights for the year 2018. The list of 32 congressmen who voted agains the decision of the House of Representatives are listed below. The 32 congressmen are now dubbed as "32 Heroes" by the supporters of the CHR.



Here's the Complete List of the "32 Heroes":

    Gabriela Rep. Emmi de Jesus
    Quezon City Rep. Jorge Banal
    Quezon City Rep. Jose Christopher Belmonte
    Buhay Rep. Lito Atienza
    Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Zarate
    Kabataan Rep. Sarah Elago
    Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano
    Anakpawis Rep. Ariel Casilao
    Gabriela Rep. Arlene Brosas
    Act Teachers Rep. France Castro
    Act Teachers Rep. Antonio Tinio
    Cebu City Rep. Raul del Mar
    Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman
    Northern Samar Rep. Raul Daza
    Negros Oriental Rep. Jocelyn Limkaichong
    Maguindanao Rep. Bai Sandra Sema
    Dinagat Islands Rep. Kaka Bag-ao
    Agusan Del Norte Rep. Lawrence Fortun
   Akbayan Rep. Tom Villarin


The House of Representatives decided to give just P1,000 budget for the Commission on Human Rights instead of the proposed P649.484 million. A total of 119 lawmakers decided to give the P1,000 budget while the other 32 refused the decision of the majority lawmakers.

There's no record of the names of 119 congressmen who voted to support the P1,000 budget for the CHR. Before the decision of the House of Representatives, Speaker Alvarez already said that the CHR deserved the very low budget for being a "useless" agency and for defending the rights of criminal syndicates.

Netizens were curious of the names of the politicians who voted against the decision of the House of Representatives to give just P1,000 budget for CHR while the supporters of CHR dubbed the 32 lawmakers as their heroes.

The P1,000 budget of the Commission on Human Rights will render the agency useless in 2018. For salary alone, the agency needs millions to provide for them. CHR Commissioner Chito Gascon earned P2.5 million last 2016 as his salary for the Commission on Human Rights (CHR).
