“They did not simply put me behind bars.  They have denied me of living the life I chose to live.”
– Jerry Butial
“They did not simply put me behind bars.  They have denied me of living the life I chose to live.”
Jerry Butial
I will never forget the day when a former colleague informed me that Jerry Villas Butial was arrested.  He was said to be a member of the Alex Boncayao Brigade (ABB) and was accused of killing Timoteo Zarcal and participating in the ambush-slay of Jose Pring.  Zarcal and Pring were both infamous police chiefs during the 1990s.  A press conference was arranged where Jerry was presented to the public through national television.  While I watched him, I could not help but wonder, why Jerry?

 

 
Opportunity in Our Hands

Dr. Jose Rizal once said that the youth is the hope of our nation.  It makes me think how this could be the case. Meeting people each day offers an opportunity for me to interact with different persons.  The staff of the Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) aided me and other young people like me to discover and improve our talents and skills toward a particular goal – to defend human rights.
Before, I admired the youth advocates of human rights whom I saw on television joining rallies. I admired their strength in defending human rights.  I did not expect that I would come as far. I started as a participant in an interfaith youth camp held last October 2009. I just went with the flow and shared what little I know in each workshop.  But in the end, all of the participants’ contributions became significant for the completion of the theater presentation.

Paglaya Sa Hawla Ng Dusa

ni Greg Bituin Jr. ng KPML-BMP-SANLAKAS

Palayain lahat ng bilanggong pulitikal

Na lumaban sa bulok na sistemang garapal

At sa hawla ng dusa’y tinuring na pusakal

Palayain lahat ng aktibistang sinakmal

Ng mga buwaya at bwitre sa gobyernong brutal

Palayain silang may puso’t adhikaing banal
