“People’s perceptions are a gauge of how our society gives feedback to government. If government will not listen, this will eat all of us to despair. Rebellion becomes our only hope,”

Ito ang naging pahayag ni Akabayan-Partylist CongressmanTom Villarin patungkol sa bagong survey na inilabas ng Social Weather Station (SWS), kung saan ipinpakitang 8 sa 10 Pillipino ay takot na mabiktima ng Extra-judicial Killings.

Ayon pa sa mambabatas, hindi raw masasabing nagtatagumpay ang giyera kontra-droga ng pamahalaan kung natatakot ang mga tao.
“When each of us don’t feel safe and worried that death will come to someone we know and love, it means that we are losing the war against drugs. We are losing not just our peace of mind but perhaps our own humanity,” dagdag pa ni Villarin.

Ayon naman sa kilalang political science professor na si Antonio Contreras, ang survey na inilabas ng SWS ay hindi para alamin ang katotohanan kung hindi para suportahan ang isang political agenda.
” A good social researcher should have already done something to probe further the result of a survey where an overwhelming number of people approve and support the President’s war on drugs even as many are allegedly worried that they can fall victim to EJK. But then again, it is obvious that the purpose of the survey was not to research the truth but to get the data needed to support a political argument. “ sabi ni Contreras.

Ano ang reaksyon niyo sa sinabi ni Congressman Villarin? Nagpapahiwatig ba ito ng planong rebelyon laban sa kasalukuyang administrasyon? Handa niyo bang ipaglaban ang demokrasya at ang Pangulo?
