A lot of investments are seen in the book re-launching, revisioning, and publishing from the Liberal Party’s side headed by Vice President Leni Robredo. On the other hand, WAC’s Nagaleaks make use of modern technology for faster, effective, and timely information dissemination.

Nagaleaks: Not to Silence but to Make Noise
We Are Collective or WAC releases what they call; The Shocking Truth behind Leni and Jesse Robredo which is only part 1 of their compilation of stories about the Robredos. It has gone viral and becomes a trending topic on social media. Robredo claims that this is not the first time it is done.They eventually do this to silence her as a government critic.
The Vice President said it herself that the alleged misinformation being spread out by alleged trolls via social media are ways of expressing dissent. She has expressed her dismay that people use social media to show their sentiments. Isn’t this freedom of speech? If so, the misinformation that she is talking about is actually from the people. As a general knowledge, misinformation is without facts but WAC makes sure that all claims are backed up with facts that can be verified as attested by one of Jesse Robredo’s ex-counsellors.
Robredo calls those who are against her online as trolls. There may be some who do not disclose their identity but many are real people online. Trolls are fictitious people on social media particularly Facebook. This is perhaps the reason why the We Are Collective page is taken out because it is created by an unverifiable account. One thing is for sure, the posting of the existence of Nagaleaks is initiated by a troll to protect the creator – but the information given are not necessarily wrong. They are leads for mainstream media to uncover since it is their job to do so.
Advantage of Nagaleaks from Robredo’s Books
The Vice President is often in the news giving anti-Marcos and anti-Administration speeches in many book launches that she is supporting. She is actually doing the same thing as WAC. She expresses her dissent over the government for favoring Marcos through traditional means. Many travels, events, and other efforts are done just to make some news over her opinions. It takes only one campaign for WAC to express their dissent towards Robredo – but it immediately manipulated the news scenes both online and offline. Robredo’s team should learn how to take advantage of information technology next time.
