Mar. 08, 2015

Representatives from Gabriela Women’s Partylist were joined today by women leaders from various organizations in laying wreaths of flowers and candles in memory of the Special Action Force commandos and other casualties killed in the Mamasapano encounter.

The group gathered in Camp Crame wearing t-shirts and waving flaglets with the message “We stand with the widows and women for truth and justice”.

“We are in solidarity with the widows of the SAF44 and we understand how they feel with the elusive justice because of the maneuvers by no less than the President of the country. We would like to let them know that members of Gabriela will stand by them in the fight for truth and justice,” said Representative Emmi de Jesus.

Meanwhile, Representwtive Luzviminda Ilagan said that GWP chapters in key cities are also joning different actions for truth, justice and accountability.
“Aquino’s culpability is clear. As commander in chief, not only did he subject the SAF troops to a US-designed suicide mission to arrest Marwan, he also now holds accountability for ordering the all-out offensive that has resulted to the displacement of more than 54,000 individuals in Mindanao,” Ilagan said.
