Rights group enjoins Filipinos to march against martial law extension, repression, dictatorship this December 10

“We are nearing December 10, commemorated as the International Human Rights Day, but we are confronted yet still by numerous and gross rights violations in succession, as well as repressive policies continuously being shoved down our throats,” said Karapatan Secretary General Cristina Palabay in a press conference by various rights groups at a restaurant in Quezon City. Palabay cited the recent case of illegal arrest of peace consultant Rey Casambre and his wife, Patricia Cora Casambre last December 7, 2018, and Duterte’s pending martial law extension for another year.
