Persevere in the struggle for human rights and a just and lasting peace

PRESS RELEASE
Information Bureau, CPP
December 10, 2010

The National Democratic Front-Eastern Visayas today joins the people in commemorating International Human Rights Day and calls for the perseverance in the struggle for human rights and a just and lasting peace. "The people have to assert their rights because the Aquino regime is all excuses, no fulfillment when it comes to human rights and other issues of the people," said NDF-EV spokesperson Fr. Santiago Salas. "Aquino's sincerity for peace remains doubtful because of his shabby regard for a binding agreement such as the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law. His regime is causing much ill will by ignoring the CARHRIHL and continuing the impunity of the military for human rights violations. This was highlighted by the 19th IB's killing of eminent scientist Leonardo Co in Leyte, on top of many more abuses against civilians in the course of massive military operations, especially in Samar. Such yawning indifference on the part of the Aquino regime casts a shadow on the peace talks."
