    From 19-21 July 2013, 280 delegates from 26 countries gathered for the International Conference for Human Right and Peace in the Philippines (ICHRPP). They are victims of human rights violations, advocates for human rights and peace, members of people’s organizations, academe, faith-based institutions, people’s lawyers.

    Together, they articulated the progressive framework of human rights and the underlying sense of violations as a systemic problem rooted in monopoly capitalism and elite domination of economic, social, cultural and political life. The conference universally affirmed the primacy of people’s struggles for the attainment and protection of human rights and just and lasting peace.

    Prior to the holding of the international conference, more than 100 delegates participated in solidarity missions conducted in several areas in the country, including Central Luzon, Southern Tagalog, three regions in Mindanao, Cordillera, and the National Capital Region. The missions looked into large-scale mining, landgrabbing, forced evacuation and the plight of internal refugees due to militarization in the countryside, targeted areas of extensive political repression by Oplan Bayanihan, forced eviction and demolitions in the urban areas, trade union struggles, and the situation of political prisoners in detention centers.

    The ICHRPP was organized by Karapatan (Alliance for the Advancement of People’s Rights), the Ecumenical Voice for Justice and Peace (EcuVoice) and the International Coordinating Committee for Human Rights in the Philippines (founded and launched during the conference as the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines), in cooperation with the Peace for Life network and the International League of Peoples’ Struggles.

    Video coverage of the conference is a project of Kodao Productions (Philippines and Europe) and the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines in cooperation with Taiwan Foundation for Democracy.
