Human Rights Under the Arroyo Government
January to June 2002

High expectations for the respect, protection and fulfillment of human rights met the advent of the Arroyo government last year. After all, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was catapulted to power by a people’s bold exercise of their rights and freedoms in a historic moment now called People Power II.

On Arroyo’s first year as president, however, peoples’ organizations and human rights organizations received a rude jolt, and now, on the second year of her presidency, this concern has become full blown.

In the months the Arroyo administration ruled the country, it has perpetrated the same cases of human rights violations it inherited from previous administrations by non-action, by omission. Worse, it has shown itself tolerant, if not supportive, of abusive acts committed by its military and police forces against the civilian population. Thus, the Arroyo administration has to account for human rights violations done either by commission (i.e. by direct action of the state or other entities insufficiently regulated by the state) or by omission (i.e. by failure to take the necessary measures stemming from legal obligations).
