Art Beyond Barriers: A Live Art Petition

Posted by anakbayantoronto on May 18, 2010

In an ongoing assault on human rights by the Philippine government, 43 health workers were illegally arrested and detained on February 6, 2010 in Morong, Rizal, Philippines. They are still illegally being held at the Philippine Military Camp Capinpin and have endured continuous ill treatment and torture in the military camp. Families of some of the 43 health workers have also reported harassment by the military. This situation is critical. Each day that the 43 health workers are not released, it is one more day they have to endure pain, fear, and torture.

Please join us in the movement to demand freedom through art by participating in this live art petition to demand the immediate release of the 43 health workers, stop human rights violations, and to say Never Again to Martial Law in the Philippines.

This project started in Los Angeles, California, and is continuing to tour North America. (For more info on the project, visit http://habi-arts.org/?page_id=417)

You don’t need to be an artist to participate and all ages are welcome.

Participation in the live art petition means you support the movement to stop human rights violations in the Philippines, support the call to Free the 43 health workers, and to say Never Again to Martial Law in the Philippines. Support of this movement is in support of a global movement to uphold and defend human rights.

This project is being conducted in collaboration with Melissa Roxas, artist, human rights advocate and survivor of a politically-motivated abduction in the Philippines last year.
