On 21 September 1972, Martial Law was declared by the dictator Ferdinand E. Marcos in the Philippines.
Forty-three years hence, the Filipino people are still suffering from severe forms of violations of their economic, social, cultural and civil and political rights by the government who should guarantee them these rights.
The International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines (ICHRP) renews its vow to stand by and amplify the calls of the Filipino people as it launches a campaign against the intensified attacks of the US supported BS Aquino regime against its own people. We call on the international community to join us in accompanying our Filipino brothers and sisters in their journey to just and lasting peace in the land.
Stop Lumad killings (and other human rights violations) in the Philippines!
Junk Oplan Bayanihan! Disband paramilitary groups!
Stop the terrorism of the criminal US-Aquino regime NOW!
Support the people’s resistance to militarization and plunder in MindaNOW!
