This issue of the Philippine Human Rights Update (PHRU) is a tribute to the late great Sr. Mariani Dimaranan, SFIC

The Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) had been deeply blessed for the many years Sr. Mariani spent as its chairperson. “Rising to her leadership role in the TFDP, Sr. Mariani very soon became identified synonymously with TFDP and a symbol of the collective courage of people who bravely stood for human rights and resisted state terrorism.” Most of the victims of human rights violations who are fortunate to still be alive today, because of the inspiration of Sr. Mariani, have become human rights workers, advocates and defenders themselves.

In this issue, TFDP has put together some of the articles and speeches on Sr. Mariani, including those that were delivered during the eulogy for Sr. Mariani last December 22, 2005. It is most fitting that this issue also commemorates the establishment of TFDP by the Association of Major Religious Superiors of the Philippines (AMRSP) thirty-two (32) years ago.

Sr. Mariani, we salute you. We will forever be thankful for your unwavering commitment in helping the victims of injustice and oppression. May we live by your legacy as we continue our journey towards the advancement of all human rights for all.

Foreword by Bishop Julio X. Labayen, OCD, DD, Mariani, A Woman of a Kind, January 2002
