Media Repression
Volume 20 Number 2
Thursday, 29 June 2006 00:00
Freedom of the press is one sacred right enshrined in the international human rights instruments. It is one of the pillars of democracy. Why then should a government, which professes adherence to principles of democracy, attack the media?
The present administration had been heavily laden with controversies from leftist, rightist, and centrist forces since the highly publicized Hello Garci tape. Unable to contain the growing unrest of the peoples, the President suddenly found a potent defense to silence all oppositions and ensure her survival – Proclamation 1017.
 
On Salvaging
Volume 20 Number 2

Nathan Ela[1]

I encountered the first cases of salvaging even before lunch on my first day as a volunteer at Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP). And I must admit, I didn’t quite know what to make of it. At base, of course, the photos that I saw in the Museum of Courage and Resistance, which portrayed corpses of activists scattered along a road, were simple enough to understand. They hit me in the gut: anger, disgust, sadness.

But it was the captions, the labels that confused me. “Salvagings?” I asked. Like most non-Filipinos, I’d never heard of a human rights violation called salvaging.

“Yes,” Carlo explained, “that’s how many people here talk about summary execution and extrajudicial killings, especially those during martial law.”
