Karapatan Alliance for the Advancement of People’s Rights – Philippines fervently greets and congratulates the Frente Popular Revolucionario (FPR) on its fourth Congress on May 1 – 3, 2014.
We salute the FPR for its 13 years of endeavor to lay down the foundation for a strong and large national organization closely linked with the workers and masses of Mexico and deeply embroiled in their struggle.
We, the Filipino people, share with Mexico the same history of conquest and revolution.

Karapatan Alliance for the Advancement of People’s Rights – Philippines strongly condemns the arrest of four human rights lawyers, together with 34 political activists, in Peru on trumped-up charges. The lawyers, including Alfredo Crespo, Carlos Gamero and Manuel Fajardo, are counsels of political activists and prisoners, including the alleged leader of Sendero Luminoso, Abimael Guzman.
