Human Rights Under the Arroyo Government
January to December 2005

Political crisis rocked the nation in 2005. Violence and conflict remained unabated. The economy continued to plunge. The poor and marginalized had not recovered. Indeed, it was a year beset with problems and issues that affected the peoples’ civil, political, economic, social, and cultural rights. In this report, the Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) has put together data on cases of human rights violations gathered by its field staff for the period of January to December 2005. Major issues and events which happened during the year are also included in this report to give a holistic view of the human rights situation during the second term of Mrs. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as President of the Philippines.

As a human rights organization, TFDP uses as framework the state obligations to respect, protect and fulfill human rights as bases of its analyses and assessments. These obligations are part of the International Bill of Rights (the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights) to which the Philippines is a State party.
