DDS Blogger Gives Unsolicited Advice to Rallyists on How to Protest by Emulating Civil Liberty Leaders

DDS Blogger and popular social media personality Krizette Laureta Chu posted her unsolicited advice to all the protesting students as well as the other militant groups on they should protests against the government by emulating former civil liberty leaders not only in the Philippines but also worldwide.



Accorrding to Krizette Chu she agreed with people who were protesting in the streets because this is how we have come to our liberties and many people have died so we could have today's freedom. She named famous personalities who are enjoying freedoms today because of Martin Luther King who pushed for civil rights.

In the Philippines, we have our own share of civil liberty leaders who toppled the Marcos government during the EDSA revolution, but too bad the succeeding leaders made people conflicted about the significance of marches and rallies and movements.

Krizette advice that being a real activist is having and believing in your cause so passionately it informs, affects, and changes your life. The DDS Blogger suggests that for your credibility, be like the real civil leaders of yesteryears.

Here's the Complete Unsolicited Advice of Krizette Laureta-Chu for Protesters:

Protesting in the streets is how we have come to our liberties. People have died so we could have today's freedom. Women can vote and can work because our mothers burned their bras. We have Beyoncé because Martin Luther King pushed for civil rights and because of the Abolitionist movement. The riots after MLK's death trained the spotlight on the harsh realities of the living conditions of many African Americans.

Every demonstration, march, and rally with leaders who were willing to die every time they stood at the front line to fight for their beliefs edged us closer to a more egalitarian society.

In the Philippines, without EDSA, Marcos would have ruled unabated, depriving many of their freedom to vote. Too bad that the succeeding leader was Cory, and made people conflicted about the significance of marches and rallies and movements.

A couple years ago, many Leytenos tried to march to show protest of the way Yolanda was handled.

So we should never deprive anyone who takes to the streets because it's the way civilians can show displeasure with their government.

Which is why it leaves a bad taste and it is so wrong that some ignorant, mema students use "rallying" lightly, that politicians "hakot" protesters to destabilize a government after brainwashing them, to fight for their rights to cheat the Constitution a la RAPPLER.

And yes I believe some students believe they have a legit issue to raise against the government, but they are so different from the civil leaders of yesteryears who walk their talk.

Ngayon, some young protesters are only trying to find meaning and purpose in their really superficial lives, to find some defining "cause" that would make their college years interesting, trying hard to pattern their lives after their idols, trying hard to pretend to care.

I see it, and I don't like it one bit. Will you die for your belief? Do you even know what you're fighting for? Can you fight for your principles to the death? Are you sure you were not brainwashed? Are you just trying so hard to be cool? Is your life so devoid of meaning you are trying so hard to glom on to any cause to feel significant? Are you even politically inclined? Can you back up all your feelings with facts and proof? Are you just trying to be somebody? If somebody died in a riot, would you still show up to the next riot?

As the lives of Rosa Parks, MLK, Harriet Beecher Stowe, John Lewis show, it takes more than showing up at a rally to be an activist.

Being a real activist is having and believing in your cause so passionately it informs, affects, and changes your life. A rally is not a one-off Instagrammable event to add to your life's milestones.

It's not messaging, "I'm here na at Starbucks. See you at EDSA and let's catch a movie later or walwal after."

You really believe Duterte is an evil dictator who has enslaved his people and killed democracy? You think under him the Philippines is ushered into the dark ages?

And that you are chosen by a higher power to bring us back into the light by removing evil Duterte and putting Leni in power?

Then by all means, please, live your life in such a way that you become a living proof of your beliefs.

Don't enjoy the freedom you say doesnt exist. What kind of emotional rollercoaster are you trying to put us in? When we see how enraged you are in one post about how deprived of liberty we are, and see you in your next post making walwal?

Pour your heart and soul into the anti dictator Duterte movement, please.

Maybe hold a protest every day. What, you're not in jail yet? Aren't dictators not so very kind to the protester and make sure they're behind bars? Why are you still posting kitty videos on Facebook when your fellow Filipinos are suffering in the dark from the evil of murderous Duterte? How dare you have fun at a time like this! What kind of Filipino are you, to know all these evil committed under Duterte, and still being able to enjoy your ramen and the latest installment of Star Wars!

Please, for your credibility, be like the real civil leaders of yesteryears. Didn't all those civil leaders and journalists and opposition senators spend time in jail for pushing "propaganda?" (I mean don't be like Leila and be the godmother of drug lords because that would put you in jail for the wrong reasons.)

For the love of God, our country according to you is in darkness and yet, and yet, you are making your anti Duterte rallies sporadic only?

Why aren't you planning Duterte the dictator's downfall in your free time, instead of watching Japanese prank videos? Why?!

Live your passion and dedicate your life to destroying Duterte (I know I would, if I believed he was), otherwise you know, these stupid Dutertrolls call you a hypocrite with an empty, meaningless life and with too much extra time on your hands.
