“The freedom of expression and other constitutional rights are not suspended during a state of emergency. People have the right to protest if they do not receive the promised aid to them,” CLCL said in a statement. “In the same vein, they also have the right to criticize government for its failure to respond effectively to the COVID-19 crisis.”

“After all, the failure of the government to respond will most heavily impact its citizens, especially the poor. It is, therefore, the right of anyone to ensure that the government delivers on its promised aid and provides efficient and effective actions to stem the increase of COVID-19 cases,” the group added.

According to CLCL, the government should instead base its solutions on the grievances of people to ensure that demands are addressed rather than try to silence the critical opinion of its people.“In fact, the government must view these criticisms as feedback mechanisms so that it can effectively perform its job of responding to the threat of COVID-19,” CLCL pointed out.

“It was only after the people of San Roque complained that relief and food have not reached their community, that relief goods were delivered to them by the local government,” it also noted, referring to Barangay San Roque residents who went out and demanded food aid from the Quezon City government.
