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:  

Stop the Killings in the Philippines!
Never again to Martial Law!

A Day of Action against Impunity
Join the Solidarity Vigil Protest

International Human Rights Day
Thursday, December 10, 2009 – 6:00 PM

This vigil protest is in response to a call by the newly formed November 23 Movement and the International Federation of Journalists [IFJ] for International Day of Action against Impunity on December 9 [though in Toronto we will hold this on December 10th in time for the International Human Rights Day.

We invite everyone to join us in raising these urgent calls:
