On International Human Rights Day… Stand Up for Justice!

Posted by anakbayantoronto on December 9, 2009

On November 23, 2009, 57 people were brutally killed in the province of Maguindanao, Philippines in the most barbaric and politically-motivated killings in the history of the country.  The victims include innocent women, children, 2 lawyers and 30 media people.  The Philippines is now the most dangerous place in the world for journalists!

Enough is enough!  We need to demand to end all political killings!  We need to demand to end impunity!  We need to demand respect for human rights!  We need to say Never Again to Martial Law!  We need to:  

STAND UP FOR JUSTICE!
Stop the Killings in the Philippines!
Never again to Martial Law!
