Pinahanga mo kami, Atty. Josalee "Josa" Deinla, sa iyong pagtayo bilang tagapagsalita ni Justice Sereno

Mga babae ang katapat sa irontfist administration ni Pres. Rodrigo Duterte.

(Like what happened sa personal na buhay sa mga kalalakihan ng Duterte family, mga babae din ang naging katapat para maibagsak ang kanilang pagiging misogynist – isang paguugali na iniinsulto, inaabuso, hinihiya, o pinamumuhian ang mga babae dahilan sa kanilang kasarian.

BASA: Iniwan si Digong ng kanyang unang asawa na si Elizabeth Zimmerman dahil sa kanyang “Antisocial Narcissistic Personality Disorder” which features “inability for loyalty and commitment, gross indifference to others’ needs and feelings, heightened by lack of capacity for remorse and guilt”; and Davao city Vice mayor Paolo Duterte’s sudden resignation was also triggered by her rebellious daughter Isabelle who, in her social media posts, insinuated that his father “beat” a child.)

Tulad kay Sen. Leila de Lima, Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales, Chief Jusice Maria Lourdes Sereno, Sen. Risa Hontiveros, human rights leader Tina Palabay, blogger Jover Laurio and other women in Congress and civil-society groups who have the balls to called on Duterte’s tyrannical leadership, malaki ang ating pagtingin sa katangian at kakayahan ni Atty. Deinla para maipaabot nya sa sambayanang Pilipino ang katotohanan sa likod ng impeachment case against CJ Sereno.

“Yung gawi na ganyan ni Gadon, he’s becoming more and more like a troll. Yung mga hindi pinag-iisipang mga ideya.”

Ayon kay  Atty.  Deinla in October last year.

Kahanga-hanga ang katapangan at tibay ng loob ni Atty. Deinla when she criticized Atty Larry Gadon over his impeachment complaint against Sereno.

A human rights lawyer with the National Union of People’s Lawyers, Atty Deinla has also handled the case of OFW Mary Jane Veloso at sa kaso ng mga pamilya ng UP student activists  Karen Empeño and Sherlyn Cadapan who were victims of enforced disappearances during the then administration of Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Sa isang feature article ng Cosmo Philippines, we will know more about the strong personality of Atty. Deinla:

Studying in UP raised my political consciousness and critical thinking, and opened my eyes to the inequality and poverty that have long afflicted our country. It was in UP that my so-called middle-class bubble was burst, prompting me to begin questioning and unlearning most of what I had been taught my whole young life. It was in UP where, in a manner of speaking, flint struck steel, kindling a fire inside me. I became a women’s rights activist affiliated with the UP chapter of GABRIELA-Youth and a student leader representing the College of Mass Communication at the University Student Council.

 

But we all know that this impeachment is not just about her; it is a partisan attack on the institution that is entrusted in the Constitution to check against abuses and curtailment of freedoms. It is a mockery of the rule of law, and, in the final analysis, an attack on our democracy. As a young lawyer and an officer of the court, I cannot abide this. I consider it my legal as well as moral obligation to defend the Chief Justice and judicial independence from the indignity and injustice of such a patently baseless and malicious impeachment complaint.

 

I also note the gender dimension in the predicament of the Chief Justice. If her alleged mistakes concerning administrative and internal matters were committed by a male Chief Justice, they would have been forgiven and forgotten. What is worse, the current administration has such great hatred and misogyny for strong female leaders who are known for standing their ground.

 

Ang tanong: Suportado ba natin ang laban ni Atty. Josalee “Josa” Deinla?
