2016 Karapatan Year-end Report on the Human Rights Situation in the Philippines

Cover YER 2016

As soon as Rodrigo Duterte became the evident winner in the last presidential elections, the public shut off BS Aquino from their minds and turned their attention to Duterte who espoused “change” during his electoral campaign. BS Aquino had been a dead weight on the shoulders of the Filipino people in the past six years. Never mind if up to the last minute, he acted under the illusion that he was the guardian of democracy like no other.

2015 Karapatan Year-end Report on the Human Rights Situation in the Philippines

On June 30, 2016, Benigno Simeon Aquino III, the 15th president of the Government of the Philippines, steps down from Malacañang. Plagued as it is with cases of bureaucratic corruption, criminal negligence, inept leadership, sell-out of the nation’s sovereignty, the BS Aquino presidency also leaves behind an atrocious record of human rights violations, which he continues to ignore to this day.

2014 Karapatan Year-end Report on the Human Rights Situation in the Philippines

2014 Karapatan Human Rights Report

On December 10, as the world commemorated International Human Rights Day, the Filipino people, represented by progressive people’s organizations, put on trial the US-backed Aquino regime for crimes against the Filipino people.  

For more than four years, the US-backed Aquino regime has only resorted to dishing out catchy slogans to mask its attacks on the Filipino people—an endless and unproductive loop of lies.

Oplan Bayanihan, which is instrumental in the bombing of communities, illegal arrests, detention, and killings of activists, hides behind ‘peace and development, and respect for human rights’ slogans. 

The police brutality used against legitimate protest actions and during demolition of urban poor shanties masquerades as ‘maintenance of peace and order’.

Position Paper of Karapatan on the Proposed House Bills 3023 and 3789 in the 17th Congress of the House of Representatives

Submitted by Roneo S. Clamor, Deputy Secretary General, Karapatan
May 31, 2017

The State must give the highest regard to the right to freedom of speech, of expression, or of the press or of the right of the people to peaceably assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances. To pass a law that will infringe on this fundamental right in a civilized society is a mockery of the so-called democracy in our country.

Rep. Harry L. Roque authored House Bill 3023, entitled “An act ensuring the free exercise by the people of their right peaceably to assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances.” Another bill, House Bill 3789, entitled “An act strengthening the right of the people to free expression, to peaceably assemble and to petition the government  for redress of grievances, repealing for the purpose Batas Pambansa Blg. 880 or the Public Assembly Act of 1985” was authored by Representatives Carlos Isagani Zarate, Makmod D. Mending Jr. and Maria Vida Espinosa Bravo.

The Dishonourable Human Rights Record of Benigno S. Aquino III

This book describes that cruelty and impunity of BS Aquino’s state forces, and no matter his and their deceit and misleading narrative, the truth of the killings, enforced disappearances and other human rights violations cannot be hidden from the Filipino people and the world.
