In the morning of July 25, 2011, before President Benigno Aquino III delivers his second State of the Nation Address, political prisoners in the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) in Muntinlupa escalate their fasting to Hunger Strike to demand for freedom and human rights.

“Ngayong araw na ito ay iniaangat namin ang aming pag-aayuno sa HUNGER STRIKE upang ipakita sa pamahalaan na kami ay seryoso sa aming panawagan na magkaroon siya ng programa para sa karapatang pantao, palayain ang lahat ng bilanggong pulitikal at repormahin ang sistema ng koreksiyonal sa bansa lalo na ang Board of Pardons and Parole guidelines,” Juanito Itaas, leader of the political prisoners’ steering committee in NBP said in a statement through the rights group Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP).

Last Thursday, July 21, political prisoners and detainees around the country launched their nationwide fasting for freedom and human rights to express their concern over government’s lack of explicit national policy on human rights and the continuous neglect of the plight of victims of political incarceration in the country.

The escalation of the struggle of the political prisoners into a Hunger Strike signifies their firm resolve to call attention not only to their situation but the lack of a human rights agenda of this government, according to Emmanuel Amistad, Executive Director of the Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP).

Human rights groups and peoples’ organizations led by the Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA) declared in a press conference this morning in Quezon City the start of the nationwide fasting of political prisoners dubbed as “Fast for freedom, fast for human rights,” to call for President Benigno Aquino III to release all political prisoners and declare a clear human rights policy.  

“Today, July 21, 2011, all political prisoners languishing in jails around the country start their protest by skipping breakfast and lunch to fast for freedom and human rights,” Emmanuel Amistad , Executive Director of Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) said.

“Ang pag-aayunong ito ay aming ilulunsad dahil sa kawalan ng sinserong pagtugon o atensiyon ng administrasyong Aquino sa mga isyu ng karapatang pantao.  Bahagi din ng pag-aayunong ito ang panawagan para sa pagpapalaya sa lahat ng tulad naming bilanggong pulitikal na walang tinatanging organisasyong pinagmulan,” Juanito Itaas, chairperson of the Political Prisoners Steering Committee in NBP, Muntinglupa said in their statement furnished to media.

Rights group: Death of Political Prisoner reveals P-Noy as an uncompassionate President

Rights group Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) called President Benigno Aquino a heartless uncompassionate President due to his inaction over the death of a cancer-stricken political prisoner.

“He is a heartless uncompassionate President. A President bereft of any compassion for human rights victims and human rights. Tatay Umbrero’s death exposes more that President Aquino’s ‘Matuwid na daan’ is a mirage,” Emmanuel Amistad, Executive Director of TFDP said.

In the morning of July 15, 2011, Mariano Umbrero, a political prisoner, died at the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) Hospital.

The 63 year old Mariano Umbrero was diagnosed with lung cancer in February 2011.  TFDP together with other members of the human rights community have appealed for the release of Tatay Umbrero as they fondly call him, on humanitarian grounds but they received no decisive and urgent action from the President.
