Freedom of expression is a fundamental right for all in society, and one especially important to members of minority groups. Here a young person is blowing a horn called a tangguyob (meaning “voice”), which is traditionally used for tribal meetings. This is a call for everyone in society to make sure their voices are heard. Asean countries must also break free from the chains of restrictions on freedom of speech. Let the “Tangguyob ti Umili” (Voice of the People) be heard and understood for a better world to live in.
