Your help is needed to protect the rights of activists in the Philippines.
On June 8, 2006 Rafael Markus Bangit, a leader of the Cordillera Peoples Alliance (CPA) was assassinated by a masked gunman. He is one of more than a hundred Filipino environmental and human rights activists who have been murdered over the past two years for their political activities. Dozens of Filipino activists have received death threats and have gone into hiding, fearing for their lives.
Meanwhile the Philippine government has stood by and done nothing to protect the human rights of its citizens or investigate the murders that have taken place. Please join us in urging the Philippine government to investigate these extra-judicial killings and death threats and to see that justice is served and human rights are respected.
Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, President, Republic of the Philippines
Avelino J. Cruz Jr., Department of National Defense
