Go to http://www.congress.gov.ph/ and vote NO to lowering the minimum age of criminal responsibility (MACR) from 15 to 9 years old.
I understand the concern over children being used by criminal syndicates because they can’t be prosecuted – I know that’s really their modus operandi.
However, putting these children in jail will only push them towards a life of crime. Instead of lowering the MACR, let’s push for better education and livelihood programs to give these children fair opportunities for a brighter future.
U.P. PRIME Movers, IDALA, U.P. MCO: The law we campaigned for to protect children is now under threat.
Resurrect the Juvenile Justice Law movement we started together.
The mission to protect children never ends.
