karapatan report on the human rights situation 2006

THE YEAR 2006 IS THE WORST FOR HUMAN RIGHTS SINCE
THE TOPPLING OF THE MARCOS FASCIST DICTATORSHIP IN
1986.

The Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo regime ran roughshod on the Filipino people’s
civil liberties and human rights as it imposed a state of martial rule and
launched a campaign of terror in an effort to desperately cling to power.
Propped up by the United States government, the Arroyo regime was able to
muster enough political, military, and economic resources to launch a counteroffensive
against those seeking to oust her from power.

karapatan report 2005 The Philippine human rights situation in 2005 can be characterized by the wanton use of repression and state terror by a scandal-rocked President desperately clinging to power in the face of the people’s rejection.

The Arroyo regime suffered its worst political crisis this year as evidence of cheating and electoral fraud began to surface in May, putting Pres. Arroyo’s legitimacy on the line. While attempts to impeach the President were thwarted in the administration-dominated Congress, the charges of electoral fraud, corruption and massive human rights violations stuck, haunting Arroyo for the rest of the year.
