Today’s View : CHR For Whom?

Imbestigahan daw tungod sa iyang pamahayag nga patyon ang dakong taeng smuggler sa bugas kun moanhi sa Davao!” [Why should our Mayor be the object of reproof by the CHR on account of his statement that he would kill the Number One rice smuggler if he comes to Davao?”]

Activists picketed the Armed Forces of the Philippines and Philippine National Police Joint Peace & Security Coordinating Council at the Waterfront Hotel in Lanang, saying the AFP’s military operations resulted to ‘un-peace’ with the displacement of indigenous peoples in Compostela, and the killing of lumad supporter Benjie Planos (in poster) in Loreto, Agusan del Sur.
