Karapatan slams arrest of NDFP consultant and Bautista's possible appointment as GPH peace panel chiefSubmitted on Tue, 01/27/2015 - 13:08
"Actions speak louder than words. The arrest of another peace consultant, Rogelio Posadas, and Gen. Emmanuel Bautista's possible appointment as chair of Aquino’s peace panel with the National Democratic Front of the Philippines contradict whatever hints of openness Aquino is trying to put on with regards to peace,” Karapatan Secretary General Cristina Palabay said.
We at Karapatan Alliance for the Advancement of People’s Rights - Philippines express our full support and solidarity with the peoples’ lawyers in the Philippines in their call to stop the attacks against human rights lawyers and to render justice to the lawyers who were ruthlessly killed and those who became subjects of attacks because of their work and advocacies as peoples’ lawyers.
