All out war

Last June 16, 2006, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo again declared war against the left. She stated, "While the revenues are the enabling mechanism for us to carry out our anti-poverty programs, the fight against the left remains the glue that binds. I am instructing the national security group to work with the DBM[1] on selected hardware and funding, aside from the five billion pesos per year modernization that will give the decisive edge against the NPA[2]. The timetable of six to ten years is too long."[3]

Summary Executions Intensifies in Mindanao
Volume 20 Number 2

We see a nation where individuals, especially journalists, are murdered for telling the truth; where selfishness and lust for power are paraded as virtues; where the youth, who are the hope of the motherland, are pilloried as upstarts for heckling impostors, and we do nothing. – Conrado de Quiros


If we could map out the spots of summary execution in the country, it is in Mindanao where most incidents happened. Davao City remains the capital of summary executions; local newspapers have already lost count of the unsolved killings that happened there and has tragically become the order of the day that seems acceptable and concerns nobody anymore. We have observed how summary execution terrorized and silenced the people as much as during martial law. The only difference is that now the people are more silenced than terrorized - a seeming tolerance and justification for killing if it is for the preservation of social and political order. That is why we got an irresponsible statement from our Justice Secretary that collateral damage is inevitable, a pending anti-terror bill which disregards due process as a rule of law and a proposed charter change that regards human rights more as our duties than as a state responsibility. These are what the present administration wants us to believe and accept.

Aurora A. Parong, M.D.

The speech below was delivered at the University of the Philippines in Lahug, Cebu City on March 1, 2006 during a forum organized by the Sanlakas Youth and other student groups to commemorate the anniversary of Edsa I. The forum was a bold expression of protest against repression brought about by Mrs. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s declaration of the State of Emergency, a policy widely viewed as Marcosian.)
