Mindanao group ‘Alisto’ calls on Duterte to suspend terror law enforcement

DAVAO CITY—A group based in Mindanao is appealing to President Rodrigo Duterte to suspend the enforcement of the Anti-Terrorism Act even as it vowed to closely monitor the controversial law’s impact on people’s rights during its implementation.

The group Alisto (Be Alert) is composed of civil society groups in Mindanao and has transitioned from examining martial law enforcement to watching closely how the Anti-Terrorism Act would be implemented in Mindanao.

In a statement released during the group’s online launch on Tuesday (Dec. 1), Alisto questioned the law’s constitutionality and urged Duterte to allow further review to ensure it would not be abused, the Constitution wouldn’t be violated and people’s rights are protected.

“If we talk of legacy, it’s not yet too late,” said Mags Malana, one of Alisto’s spokespersons and also convenor of Konsensya Dabaw, one of the groups that are part of Alisto.

Duterte, said Malana, would not want

The organization contends the GOP group and its Rule of Law Defense Fund “promote and coordinate actions” among the nation’s top GOP legal officeholders, including Yost, to benefit corporations and Republican “electoral interests.”

“Yost and his staff appear in their official capacity at RAGA and RLDF events, participate in RAGA-coordinated official actions, and

Ohio political group asks Trump to impose martial law, hold new election

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — An Ohio-based political organization is calling on President Donald Trump to impose limited martial law and conduct a new presidential election, a move that Ohio’s Republican attorney general called “utterly irresponsible.”

The We the People Convention, based in Akron, took out a full-page ad in the Washington Times on Tuesday, asking Trump to “invoke limited martial law in order to allow the U.S. military to oversee a new and fair federal election,” according to a news release.

In November, Trump lost his reelection bid to Democrat Joe Biden. Since then, Trump has alleged election fraud and attempted legal challenges in several states that he lost to Biden, but he has not been successful in changing the outcome in any of those states.

Tom Zawistowski, president of the We the People group, said in the release, “It is our exclusive
