President Rodrigo Duterte is issuing a law that will reprimand children from as young as 9 year olds who have no idea what the world is and how the world works could become a criminal just by breaking a law even without being aware by it. This is a serious impediment to a childs development, it may scar the youth of his/her chilhood which will then heavily affect his/her future, our future, our hope, this countrys well being.

According to President Digong, one way to deter drug gangs from using children in doing their underground businesses is to lower the age of criminal liability (Gutierrez, J., 2019)- children around 15 years old are being asked\forced to do illegal acts so that when they are caught, they wont be sanctioned for any offense because there are no laws that will let you arrest them, well not yet, not ever, unless we give up on this fight, this very fight for the youth that will soon and  surely mold our future society! Are YOU gonna give up?! Are YOU gonna give up and let our future, your be future in the hands of others if not JOIN US in stopping the law! Be one of us and sign up! Lets mold our future, together.
