An article published by foreignpolicy.com claimed that human rights commissioner Chito Gascon said that Filipinos are living in "dangerous times" because President Rodrigo Duterte is leading the country.

He also said the Philippines has started aligning itself towards “popularly elected despots” who use their mandates to undermine institutions and consolidate personal power because of Duterte.

“This is probably the biggest challenge to democracy since the dictatorship. With the election of Mr. Duterte we’re moving away from the post-authoritarian democratic consensus to a period of illiberal democracy.” 

“We’re living in dangerous times,” he says.


Gascon said he hopes that those who remain committed to democracy will soon find the strength to push back. But he worries that it may not happen soon enough.

He also defended Senator Leila de Lima who is being linked to the illegal drug trade inside the National Penitentiary.

“I don’t know if [De Lima] will survive this. I don’t know if I will survive this. The president said in his campaign that ‘change is coming,’ and probably change is here. But to us it actually feels more like winter is coming.”

Recently, the President called all those from the CHR ugly.

    1. I hope you read on the mandate of the CHR.

      CHR is part of the government set by the constitution to check itself from abuse. It is not there to run after Criminals since you have the Police, NBI, PDEA (in cases of drugs) and Military (Terrorist & Insurgents) to go to. But if the arm of the government is abusive like those mentioned above, you go to CHR.

  8. Really Mr. Gascon? Then you and your human rights group must have a very pervented sense of morality. You talk of human rights violations for criminals. So tell us where does that leave law-abiding,hard-working citizens that get victimized by the very members of society you are trying to protect. Since when did the lives of criminals become more worth saving than decent people? Your Human Rights Group will only work if you have a mature society, led by upright and committed politicians which in the Philippines are very much a minority. You and your kind make me sick.
