Artist’s Statement

Children need protection. They are one of the weakest parts of our society. They are prone to abuse and manipulation. In early 2019, the Philippine legislation is proposing to lower the age of criminal responsibility from 15 to 9 or 12 years old. We are opposing this as it will put children in danger. We would like to call for more attention from people to protect the rights of the children. We are hoping to give impact to the lives of the “little” voiceless population.
