Immediately release Maritess and Rosario, hold their torturers accountable so that it may not happen again to anyone

Free_Lotero_and_Marquez_copyTask Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) calls on the immediate implementation of the Review Resolution issued by the Department of Justice Secretary Leila De Lima and the immediate release of the two Agta women illegally arrested, detained and psychologically tortured by authorities.  (http://opinion.inquirer.net/79521/to-have-peace-there-must-be-justice)

All those involved must be held accountable and this practice that violates human rights must be stopped.

TFDP pertains to the case of Marites Dela Cruz Marquez (Sierra Madre in Tumbil, Barangay Umiray,  General Nakar, Quezon) and Rosario Marquez Loreto (Mataping, Barangay Umiray, General Nakar, Quezon) who were illegally arrested on September 26, 2014 at Barangay Sta. Ines, Tanay, Rizal Province. (http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/665395/doj-finds-arrest-of-women-tribe-members-illegal-orders-reinvestigation)

Marites and Rosario were arrested by combined elements of the 59th and 16th Infantry Battalions and local police of Tanay, headed by 2LT Ronnel Avanzado and Chief Insp. Reynaldo Francisco because they were suspected to be members of the New People’s Army (NPA), accused of kidnapping, robbery and murder.

Seek Truth. Work for Justice. Wage Peace. Justice for the Fallen, Justice for All!
On Peace

Seek Truth. Work for Justice. Wage Peace.
Justice for the Fallen, Justice for All!

Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) stands for truth. We would like to know what really happened at Mamasapano. We would like to determine accountability and command responsibility for the loss of lives which now threatens the peace negotiations between the GPH and the MILF.

TFDP stands for justice. When accountability is determined by an independent body, then the wheels of justice can begin to turn. Justice not only for the Fallen 44, but Justice for All!

TFDP stands for peace and reconciliation. Moslem Mindanao has had wars and conflicts for more than forty years. The peace agreement between government and the MILF is another step towards the path of peace. We have no illusions that it will suddenly bring peace in the conflict-torn areas and communities, but waging peace and engaging in dialogue are infinitely better than shooting at each other. War makes victims of us all!

TFDP journeys with all peacemakers and peace builders. Mindanao will fully develop if we recognize the diversity of its peoples and their cultures. Shalom or wholeness of being comes from the acceptance of differences. Let not hatred and vengeance reign in our hearts! Silence is necessary to embrace the faith and fate of the other. Let dignity and human rights be our starting point.

TFDP recalls these words: Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me. With every step I take, let this be my solemn vow – to seek truth, to work for justice, to wage peace! Justice for the Fallen, Justice for All!

CASE DETAILS:

A Partido Manggagawa (PM) organizer was shot to death by unidentified gun men on November 29, 2014 at around 9:00 p.m. at the crossing of Hacienda Garrason in Barangay San Jose, Binalbagan, Negros Occidental. The victim was identified as Rolando Panggo, 47 years old, married, and a resident of Barangay Payao, Binalbagan, Negros Occidental.

On November 29, 2014 at around 9:00 p.m., the Partido Manggagawa (PM) had a meeting with farm worker members in preparation for the Bonifacio Day activities in Binalbagan, Negros Occidental.

According to Nemsie, Panggo’s wife, at around 9:00 p.m., after the meeting, her husband and his cousin, Rolly Herollo decided to go home aboard Herollo’s Honda XRM single motorcycle with plate number 2805 QT.

Upon arriving at the crossing of Hacienda Garrason, Barangay San Jose, Binalbagan, Negros Occidental, an unidentified automobile loaded with five (5) unidentified men overtook them and blocked their way.

Two (2) unidentified armed men disembarked from the car and immediately accosted them. Panggo was dragged away a few distance and shot to death. His cousin was ordered to drop to the ground and his head was pushed by the feet of the unidentified armed men.

According to the victim’s wife, her husband sustained eight gunshot wounds, one in the left side of his head, the others in his right shoulder and back.

Nemsie added that Herollo heard the armed men say, “Kasabad sa imo, pati duta ginahilabtan mo pa.” (“You’re a nuisance, you’re intervening, even with the land.”)

CBCP-NASSA and ATM Joint Statement on the Mining Issue During the Visit of Pope Francis Manila and Tacloban in the Philippines: 15-19 January 2015
On Mining

CBCP-NASSA and ATM
Joint Statement on the Mining Issue During the Visit of Pope Francis
Manila and Tacloban in the Philippines: 15-19 January 2015
"Do not defile the land where you live and where I dwell (Num. 35:34)."
In two instances, the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has published statements on the mining issue in the Philippines.  In 1995, the CBCP asked for the repeal of the Philippine Mining Act (RA 7942) citing the “devastating effects and the adverse social impacts of mining that will destroy both environment and people and will lead to national unrest”. The Bishops expressed their support for the many local petitions against mining operations in the Philippines.  Then in 2006, CBCP re-affirmed their stand for the repeal of the Mining Act of 1995, believing that “the Mining Act destroys life”.  The Bishops stated that “allowing the interests of big mining corporations to prevail over people’s right to these sources amounts to violating their right to life. Furthermore, mining threatens people’s health and environmental safety through the wanton dumping of waste and tailings in rivers and seas.”
Last Sept. 9, 2013, Tarcisio Cardinal Bertone read the message of Pope Francis to the mining industry during the Day of Reflection between the Mining Industry and the Vatican. The Holy Father reminded everyone that “ the great challenge of business leaders is to create a harmony of interests, involving investors, managers, workers, their families, the future of their children, the preservation of the environment on both a regional and international scale, and a contribution to world peace.”
CBCP-NASSA and ATM believes that any meaningful dialogue or engagement with the mining industry must be strongly built on the Catholic Social Teachings and informed by the principles of:
a)    Integrity of Creation - The interrelatedness and interconnectedness of nature and man within nature, must be recognized, and that large-scale destruction of forests by mining operations must be contained to preserve ecological sustainability.
b)    Responsible Stewardship – Human extractive activity must not disrupt sustenance of current needs nor the needs of future generations.  Human activity must promote harmony and development that correspond with God’s plan, paying close attention to consequences of these actions
c)     Human Dignity – mining projects must not exploit the already marginalized people, including the mine workers who are not justly compensated, or the farmers who lose their irrigation, or the fishers who see their waters contaminated or the indigenous peoples who not only lose their lands, but their livelihoods and culture as well, and women and children lose their access to health and well-being
d)    Preferential Option for the Poor – communities affected by mining loss their access to land and water, leaders are bribed and corruption breeds bad governance, and the benefits of mineral extractions are cornered by the elites.
To this end, we implore the Holy Father to support and stand with the communities, local organizations and popular movements who are responding to the challenges of the mining industry.  We urge Pope Francis to:
1.     Support the call of Philippine Bishops and the mining-affected communities to repeal the Philippine Mining Act (RA 7942) and the clamor for a new mining law that recognizes the environment and ecology, respects human rights and ensures that negative impacts of mining are completely addressed and avoided;
2.     Ensure that the voices of the marginalized and the poor are heard and given space in any dialogue or interaction between the Church and the mining industry, from the local up to the global levels;
3.     Encourage the Catholic leadership as well as other religious leaders, to practice their stewardship role in facilitating harmony, peace and social justice to address the issues brought by mining and other extractive industries.  The way forward must include a true discernment incorporating the attempt to correct historical injustices, promoting greater transparency and seeking and working for alternatives to the market-driven and consumerist-materialist economic system.
We are confident that the Holy Father will be the inspiration of Filipinos who struggle to convert and renew themselves, and become true stewards of God’s creation. We continuously invoke the grace of the Holy Spirit to bless us with spiritual fervor, and we are ever grateful to Mary, Mother of Jesus and our Mother, for her intercession.
Signed.
