[PODCAST] The frightening future of Duterte's anti-terror law

The brainchild of the military men in President Rodrigo Duterte's Cabinet, the 2020 Anti-Terrorism Law is now fully a Duterte-enabled legislation because it bears his signature and was fast-tracked due to his blessing.

The dangerous law is now in effect and it's Duterte's alter-egos who will form the powerful Anti-Terrorism Council (ATC), a group that can brand a person or a group as a terrorist and order arrest.

So what's next for the anti-terror law? Rappler's Malacañang reporter Pia Ranada talks to Karen Gomez-Dumpit, a commissioner at the Commission on Human Rights, about who are vulnerable should this law be abused.

Dumpit also shares tips on what to do if one becomes a target because of this law. Her first tip? Don't panic.

Seat of Power is Rappler's podcast about the Duterte presidency and its impact on Filipinos.
