Bulacan youth groups support Anti-Terror Bill

CAMP GEN. ALEJOS S. SANTOS, Bulacan — Various youth groups in the 21 towns and three cities of Bulacan have thrown their support for the passage of the Anti-Terrorism Bill into law.

The Bulacan police provincial director Col. Lawrence Cajipe helped the youth sector of the province in warding off the threats of drug abuse and terrorism by establishing Kabataan Kontra Droga at Terorismo (KKDAT).

According to Cajipe, KKDAT aims to strengthen the bond between the police and the youth in the country’s renewed fight against the said threats.

“KKDAT is one tool that the youths can use in reporting irregularities in their localities that can eventually prevent them from falling victims to illegal drugs and terrorism,” Cajipe said.

The youth sector sees the proposed law as protecting them from the menace of illegal drugs and protects them from terrorist infiltration that is out to sow terror in the country.

The youth leaders declare that now more than ever, they need the proposed law to be passed so that they won’t fall victim to the menaces of illegal drugs and terrorism. “Ayaw Namin Sa Terrorista Labanan ang Terrorista”.
Meanwhile, Kabataan Kontra Droga at Terorismo (KKDAT) in Central Luzon virtual summit was held on Friday, coinciding with the Independence Day Celebration.

Over 100 youth from the different provinces of Central Luzon participated in said virtual summit and showcased their talents in their presentations.
The said virtual summit was also joined by Gen. Alex Monteagudo, NICA, KKDAT Region 3 President, KKDAT Ambassadress Kaye Ann Legaspi, and Michelle Gumabao, together with other heads of the different government agencies such as the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).
