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.

Mindanao takes the center stage of BS Aquino’s Oplan Bayanihan. 

The massacre of the Lumad leaders Dionel Campos, Juvello Sinzo and Emerito Samarca on September 1 in Lianga, Surigao del Sur brought to the fore the state of human rights in Mindanao and in the whole country under the BS Aquino regime—the unabated political killings, attacks on communities and on self-initiated schools, forced evacuation, among many other military atrocities. The brazenness by which the crime was committed speaks of the climate of impunity that continues to pervade the country.

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’.
