PIFA Calls to Stop, not Pause Cyber Martial Law
The Philippine Internet Freedom Alliance (PIFA), made up of different organizations, netizens, and bloggers, held its first protest this year as it continues to fight for freedom of expression and against the Cybercrime Law.
The group revived its silent protest, the third since the passage of the said bill last year.
“This is our third Tuesday of silence. The Supreme Court must decide before everyone is unjustly silenced everyday.” Kenneth Keng, PIFA Spokesperson, said.
PIFA is the 15th petitioner against the Cybercrime Prevention Act or RA 10175. The grounds for the petition included: the law as a violation of the right to privacy, as a violation to equal protection, and as a violation to free speech. Individuals and organizations part of PIFA were the signatories of the said petition.
An online black-out also continues as support of the protest. People have once again changed their profile photos into black. Both the online and offline protests serve PIFA’s battle-cry, “Stop Cyber Martial Law!”
“The TRO given by the Supreme Court does not stop Cyber Martial Law, it has only been put into a pause. This means that losing our freedom of expression is just looming around the corner.” Ayeen Karunungan, also a spokesperson of PIFA, said.
PIFA calls for the repeal of the law. “The Cybercrime Law does not answer the problems we are facing in the Internet. We call for the repeal of the law and to craft a new one that will truly serve its purpose,” PIFA spokesperson, Red Tani, added.
PIFA is a broad alliance of organizations and individuals who stand together to protect our basic rights to liberty and dignity – including the right to privacy, and freedom of expression, speech, sexuality, and mobility – on the Internet and who opposes RA 10175 which contains provisions that are oppressive, susceptible to abuse, and against the fundamental liberties guaranteed by the Constitution. It is an open alliance and anyone who share the same advocacy may join.

AMRSP statement on the Tampakan massacre

“Who has appointed you ruler and judge over us...? (Exodus 2:14)”

 

amrspWe, the Association of Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines condemned the treacherous killing of Family members of a B’laan tribe leader opposed to the entry of Sagittarius Mines Incorporated (SMI) in their ancestral domain area during a raid conducted by the military at their farm house. Three (3) members of Capion family died while the youngest daughter was wounded. The massacre on October 18, 2012 at about 6:30 in the morning in Sitio Fayahlob, Barangay Datal Aliong, Kiblawan, Davao del Sur, is a manifestation of heartlessness and ruthlessness on the part of the perpetrators and criminals in uniform who were members of 27th Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army.

 

AMRSP denounces this massacre for no one has the right to deprive anyone of the gift of life through an unjust and inhuman way. We demand justice for the members of Capion family who were brutally murdered. The voice of the woman victim who was pregnant and her children who were helplessly killed while still in bed shouted for justice to the heavens! We cannot simply be silent with this show of impunity for aside from the fact that the victims were defenseless; a mother and her children, their only sin is to stand for what they think is truthful and just!

PAHRA’s Letter of concern regarding the investigations and processes undertaken by PNP and PA on the Tampakan Massacre

GEN. NESTOR FAJURA

Chief, Human Rights Affairs Office

Philippine National Police

COL. ERICK PARAYNO

Chief, Human Rights Office,

Philippine Army

 

November 5, 2012

Sir,

Warm greetings.

pahra_logo_copyWith due respect to the Kiblawan Philippine National Police (PNP) Progress Spot Reports and the Press Release of the 10th Infantry Division (ID) of the Philippine Army (PA), the Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA) would like to express its concern regarding the investigations and processes undertaken by both institutions.

PAHRA fears a possible suppression of data and glossing over of possible human rights violations and criminal liabilities by the 10th ID, PA and the Kiblawan PNP on what actually transpired in the Kiblawan Massacre last October 18, 2012 due to either lack of due diligence, thoroughness or transparency in their investigations and institutional procedures.

Comparing the results from the Fact-Finding Mission conducted by civil society and human rights defenders led by the Diocese of Marbel Social Action Center, the Kiblawan PNP Spot Reports and the 10th ID, PA Press Release, PAHRA’s analysis, among others, showed major discrepancies which could be vital to verifying what really happened in that bloody fateful day that killed Jordan and John Mark Capion y Malid and their mother, Juvy Capion y Malid, who was 2-3 months pregnant. These discrepancies were neither addressed in the PNP Progress Spot Reports nor in the Press Release.

Youth and rights groups hold nationwide torch parade and candle lighting to honor nameless heroes and martyrs of Martial Law
Youth groups led by Youth for Rights (Y4R) together with human rights organization Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) held a torch parade and nationwide candle lighting to honor nameless heroes and martyrs in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law.
In Quezon City, the group’s torch and candle light parade started at 5:30 in the afternoon OF September 21, along Quezon City Circle that proceeded to Palma hall in University of the Philippines where a concert which they dubbed as “Balik Himig sa mga Awit ng Pakikibaka ng panahon ng Batas Militar, the RememberML@40 concert” was being held.
“We are one with the human rights community and all the survivors of Martial Law in confronting attempts to revise and distort history. The Marcoses maimed, killed, tortured, and disappeared thousands.  The families and victims of that horror have yet to find justice and closure and yet the lies of the Marcoses and their allies are being peddled as truths,” said Emmanuel Amistad, Executive Director of TFDP.
TFDP is a national human rights organization established in 1974 by the Association of Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines (AMRSP) in response to the rampant human rights violations caused by Proclamation 1081 by then President Ferdinand Marcos.
“TFDP refuses to forget the lessons that the nation learned from that dark episode of our history. That on that faithful day of September 21, 1972, forty years ago, President Ferdinand Marcos deliberately breached his contract with the Filipino people by declaring Martial Law that would lead to unimaginable cases of human rights violations and abuses,” Amistad added.
TFDP’s documentation shows that 6,472 suffered arbitrary arrests and detention, 1,050 were tortured by government security forces and paramilitary groups.
“Under Marcos rule, many were tortured, killed and disappeared.  Mostly were activists from the marginalized sectors of our society. Their only fault was that they never feared to fight for their rights and demand for change,” Amistad continued.
According to TFDP, Forty years ago, the Filipino people were faced with a corrupt abusive regime that not only fed from the nation’s wealth but from the blood of the toiling masses.
The candle lighting to honor nameless heroes and martyrs of Martial Law was also done in other major cities in Visayas and Mindanao.
Members of the RememberML@40-Never Again to Martial Law campaign network also lighted candles in Cebu Freedom Park, in Dumaguete and  in Freedom Park and University of Mindanao in Davao City as well.
TFDP also initiated the online campaign #rememberML@40 in the social networking site Facebook. “It serves as venue to share stories of heroism, sacrifices and nationalism of the youth under ML,” Amistad explained.
FB users changed their profile pictures with photos and icons of pinky fingers with a red ribbon as pledge to remember, inform and inspire others about the truth and demand for justice for all victims of Martial Law.
“We call on President Aquino to honor our nameless heroes and martyrs by starting with fulfilling his promise during his 2011 SONA to compensate all victims of human rights violations of Martial Law. May he be inspired with what his father, former Senator Ninoy Aquino fought for,” Amistad declared.
“TFDP will never allow that all the sacrifices of those who fought the dictatorship will go to waste.  We will continue to inform and educate the Filipino people about the truth especially our youth of today who never experienced ML.  For there will be no better way to honor our heroes and martyrs not only by retelling their stories but to be inspired about their lives and to continue asserting for human rights,” Amistad concluded.
