"Thirteen massacres, 46 victims, seven of them are minors. These all happened under Commander-in-chief BS Aquino since 2010 up to the present," Karapatan secretary general Cristina Palabay cried out in front of the Department of Justice today. Karapatan joined Bayan and other people's organizations in a protest action on the continuing extrajudicial killings in the country.
