2008 Year-End Report on the Human Rights Situation in the Philippines














Karapatan is releasing this 2008 report on the human rights situation in the Philippines as the world observes the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). This report principally features cases of violation of human rights, as recorded by Karapatan, from January to October 2008. It also includes a review of escalating attacks against human rights defenders since 2001 and our experience so far with the writ of amparo. It reveals that amidst our celebration of the global triumphs of our advocacy for human rights, social justice remains a work-in-progress in the Philippines.
