Introduction:  Impunity Cutting Across All Human Rights

A leader of the National Federation of Sugarcane Workers (NFSW), Armando Dolorosa, 45 was gunned down by three masked men in Manapla, Negros Occidental on 6 June 2008.  Negros is part of a group of islands called the Visayas Islands in the Philippines.

According to Dolorosa's wife, Janetta, she suspects that her husband's murder had something to do with the implementation of the agrarian reform program. She said her husband and 36 other agrarian reform beneficiaries were given certificates of land ownership award by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) last year, to own a portion of a sugar estate. Mr. Dolorosa was the third local NFSW leader slain in Manapla since 2003, local police records show.

 
Struggle for Bangsamoro Human Rights
Volume 22 Number 2

by Daniel Conejar

Many continue to claim that the reported number of human rights violations against the Bangsamoro people in Mindanao, especially in the Muslim autonomous regions wherein communities experience constant fear and intimidation as the war rages on, is way below the actual number. The conflict between the government and the separatist groups compounded by the drive against the acts of terrorism resulted to the massive number and grave cases of human rights violations. But these are not fully exposed due to the risk and difficulty of monitoring and documentation, lack of cooperation of the victims and worst, suppression of truth that comes out in the media. This is not only true at the present state of virtual lawlessness and subtle repression, but also during the martial law years and post EDSA revolution. The Bangsamoro people suffer poverty, corporate aggression and now the unnerving war on terror. Nowadays, when you are a Muslim or when your name sounds like one, you are already fifty-percent tagged as a potential terrorist, worse if you are engaged in human rights advocacy, media, counseling and even as a mere sympathizer to their plight. In any case, a simple slip of the tongue or action against the government will make you a terrorist. This sounds absurd but this is the reality in Mindanao.

(talumpati ni Sr. Cres Lucero, sfic sa Baclaran Truthfest noong ika-24 ng Setyembre, 2008)

Magandang gabi sa ating lahat!

Ilang ulit na natin narinig ang salitang Katotohanan. Ilang ulit na rin natin sinabi na kailangan natin ng Katotohanan sa ating bayan. Ano nga ba ang Katotohanan na ating hinahanap?

Ako ay matagal ng Tagapagtanggol ng Karapatang Pantao (Human Rights Defender) at sa larangan na ito ano ba ang katotohanan?

Ang KATOTOHANAN para sa amin ay ang dalawang daan at apat (204) na bilanggong pulitikal na patuloy na naghihirap sa loob ng piitan malayo sa piling ng kanilang mga pamilya.
