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.

TFDP calls for fair, impartial and speedy disposition of Mr. Tulawie’s case

“TFDP CALLS FOR FAIR, IMPARTIAL AND SPEEDY DISPOSITION OF MR. TULAWIE’S CASE”

 

Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP), is calling for fair, impartial and speedy disposition of the case of Mr. Temogen “Cocoy” Tulawie. He was arrested on January 13,2012 at 11:45 in the evening by combined elements of Military Intelligence Group (MIG), Region 9, Special Action Force (SAF)and Police Intelligence (R2), in Catalunan Grande, Davao City.

 

TFDP, supports Mr. Tulawie in his quest for justice not only for himself but for all the people of Sulu province whose rights were violated. Being a human rights defender, it is his conviction to both God and the people to act against the human rights violations that endanger his life and that of his family.

 

Mr. Tulawie has an impressive record in human rights defense and promotion. He is the former provincial chairperson of the Consortium of Bangsamoro Civil Society (CBCS), a coalition of Bangsamoro civil society organizations (CSOs) within the province of Sulu. His works involves monitoring and documentation of cases of human rights violations affecting Muslim communities in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), especially in the province of Sulu.

 

The United Nations Declaration on Human Rights Defenders, adopted in 1998, enumerated some rights and protection accorded to human rights defenders, among others; to seek the protection and realization of human rights at the national and international level and to make complaints about official policies and acts relating to human rights and to have such complaints reviewed.

 

Under this declaration, the state is bound with the duties to protect, promote and implement human rights and to provide an effective remedy for persons who claim to have been victims of human rights violations.

 

With these safeguards, TFDP is certain that Mr. Tulawie will be afforded with impartiality by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the court will hear his case without prejudice considering that his private complainant is a prominent Governor of Sulu.

 

Uphold his integrity as a human rights defender!

TFDP GA Statement of Support for PALEA

We, delegates and participants of the 16th National General Assembly of the Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP), in renewing our commitment to human rights, particularly to its universality, as originally conceived in its establishment in 1974 by the Association of the Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines (AMRSP), unequivocably support the struggle of the Philippine Air Lines Employees Association (PALEA) for their right to full human development and a quality of life worthy of their dignity.

PAL’s plan to terminate more than 2,600 employees affecting three departments, which PAL labels as “non-core”, was based on the pretext of that “It was motivated by a pressing need to prevent further financial drain and thus, save PAL from eventual collapse.”  And that such a move“is necessary for to this very day, PAL’s economic downturn continues to threaten its survival.”
