Justice for Ka Melon! Protect all farmers and human rights defenders in Hacienda Dolores!
May 7, 2014


10333354_760549450643243_5522123588724459289_oAs the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program Extension with Reforms (CARPer) come to a close this June 2014, color of agrarian lands turn red. The killing of farmer-leader and human rights defender Menelao Barcia on May 2  have starkly brought to fore the gravity of the situation in Hacienda Dolores, Porac, Pampanga.  

How much worse does it have to get, before those who can bring the agrarian struggle in Hacienda Dolores to an end, especially President Noynoy Aquino, decide to do so?

Ka Melon and his wife, Maria were ambushed at around 9 o’clock in the evening last May 2, 2014 in Purok 3, Barangay Manibaug Paralaya in Porac, Pampanga. He was rushed to the hospital but declared dead on arrival while his wife survived the attack with gunshots in her extremities that need surgery. Ka Melon, a barangay kagawad of Barangay Hacienda Dolores, was also one of the leaders of the Aniban ng Nagkakaisang Mamamayan sa Hacienda Dolores (ANIBAN), a group that claims ownership of Hacienda Dolores by virtue of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program.

The killing of Ka Melon raises questions: Is it just the latest in the long list of attacks and violence committed in Hacienda Dolores? Is is the handiwork of the same armed security personnel of private landowners targeting farmer-leaders and human rights defenders asserting their right to land? Many such attacks have gone largely unnoticed or unreported at the national level, but have served to accentuate the spiral of violence within the Hacienda Dolores itself.

PIFA to SC: “You missed your opportunity to champion Internet Freedom”
February 21, 2014   

PIFAdotPHThe Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld the majority of the provisions of the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 (RA 10175) despite the petition of the Philippine Internet Freedom Alliance (PIFA) to junk the law for being contrary to the democratic values and rights of the sovereign Filipino people.

PIFA expresses regret for the Supreme Court for having missed the chance to become champions of internet freedom. Although reserving the right to allow the high court to reconsider RA 10175 as Cyber Martial Law, PIFA must now shift its advocacy to the arena of Congress to get legislators to repeal RA10175.

PIFA is flabbergasted at the retention of the cyberlibel provision . This repressive encroachment on the freedom of expression propagates a chilling effect across cyberspace, muting or outright silencing dissent and discourse on public matters. Foisting the threat of prison sentences for cyberlibel – increased from four years to ten years imprisonment – is contrary to the global trend to decriminalize libel.

In 2012, President Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III even told the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines (FOCAP) that he was considering the global trend to decriminalize libel. During the oral arguments, Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio pointed out that no less than the United Nations Human Rights Committee has called the attention of the Philippine government to amend its laws to remove libel from its criminal statutes.
