[PODCAST] Law of Duterte Land: How to legally fight red-tagging

The Duterte government has sparked a new legal offensive against red-tagging, pushing lawyers to be more creative with their suits as there is no law that criminalizes red-tagging.

The Senate hearings are discussing legislation that would make red-tagging a crime, but there are concerns about its impact on freedom of speech.

Red-tagging is linking legitimate progressive groups to the communist movement, either the leadership of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) or its armed wing, the New People's Army (NPA).

Since the anti-subversion law was repealed in 1992, being a communist has ceased to be a crime.

In this episode, we talk to human rights lawyer Chel Diokno of the Free Legal Assistance Group (FLAG) about the laws that can be invoked by anyone who is red-tagged.
