Aside from the observation of violent encounters, they also noticed that it appears the local governments in National Capital Region are reactivating the curfew law to gain approval of the next President. They argued that the motives are too obvious since one Barangay in Quezon city dubbed the operation as Oplan Rody or Rid the Streets Of Drinkers and Youth.

SPARK is alarmed when they learned that curfews will be implemented to other large provinces such as Bacoor, Lipa, Mandaue, and Baguio city.

We just could not understand the logic behind the arguments of these groups. Instead of blocking the implementation of curfew, it would be better to remind the police officials to be more gentle in handling the kids. Their dispute shouldn't be the curfew law itself but it should be directed to the authorities who violates the rights of the individuals(if ever there were violations).

Do you agree on the plans of the Human Rights groups to stop the implementation of curfew in Metro Manila and other parts of the country?
