13 illegally arrested on planted evidence, preposterous testimony

“Karapatan demands the immediate release of 13 civilians including an accredited peace consultant of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines as the arrest and detention is illegal and smacks of foul play and dirty tricks,” said Cristina Palabay, secretary general of Karapatan.

Killings continue amidst BS Aquino's crisis

"Amidst the Aquino government’s crisis brought about by the Mamasapano fiasco, extrajudicial killings continue. BS Aquino is again taking a “business as usual” stance with regards to the crisis he is confronted with and this “business as usual” air is reflected in the continuing violations of human rights. Just this month, Karapatan received reports of three incidents of killings from North to South," Cristina Palabay, secretary general of Karapatan said.

BOI-Senate report on Mamasapano downplayed civilian casualties

“The reports of both the PNP Board of Inquiry and the Senate on the Mamasapano carnage sidetracked the seven civilian casualties during the Mamasapano carnage and the hundreds of residents who were displaced during the operation. They, too, were victims of the US-Aquino’s botched Oplan Wolverine/Exodus. They, too, should figure in in BS Aquino’s accountability,” said Karapatan Secretary General Cristina Palabay. 

Our country is in dire need for change. Now.

Among everybody else involved in the Mamasapano carnage, BS Aquino is most guilty of insubordination—insubordination of the people’s will and interest for truth and accountability. 

Thus, it is totally absurd for Malacañang to threaten with sedition charges his “critics”—the people calling for BS Aquino’s immediate resignation. The people’s resounding call for BS Aquino to resign from office is his own doing. He brought it upon himself.
