PNOY must release all victims of political incarceration. Free All Political Prisoners!
On Political Prisoners

Almost 300 political prisoners and political detainees continue to languish in jail even as this government claims democracy as its lifeblood.  Most of them have been convicted or charged with common crimes that deny them of their true identities as grassroots activists, urban poor organizers, or even as revolutionaries.

We welcome the possible freedom of Sen. Trillanes and the Morong 43 as a step towards reconciliation and peace, but we must look beyond the Morong 43 and the rebel soldiers and look into the plight of almost 300 political prisoners and detainees nationwide.

They are our Muslim brothers who are wrongfully accused and jailed for crimes of terrorism, bombings and killings.  They are the suspected rebels who have been charged with common crimes.  They are the alleged sympathizers, farmers, workers, students, and human rights defenders who are wrongfully linked of involvement with armed groups.

Most of them have suffered for years. Juanito Itaas has been imprisoned for more than two decades for the Col. James Rowe killing.  Basilides Badion and Gerry Butial have been detained and tried for almost 15 years for the Zarcal killing.  
They, along with more than 300 political prisoners and detainees, also deserve an act of reconciliation and justice.  They too deserve freedom.

In celebration of human rights week and the political prisoners’ day last December 7, 2010, the Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) reiterates it call for PNoy to release all political prisoners and political detainees in the country.

We honor all freedom fighters, human rights defenders and common people who are victims of political repression.  It is time to set them free. Let these men and women of conviction rejoin society.

PNoy must act now!
