Student journalists and musicians lit candles earlier today to commemorate the Maguindanao massacre. “We are gathered here today to remember the lives of those lost during the Maguindanao massacre,” Christopher Pasion, deputy secretary general of the College Editors Guild of the Philippines said.
Those gathered lit candles along Quezon Avenue before proceeding to a concert for the first anniversary of the Maguindanao massacre. According to Arthur Moses Cadungan of the Musicians for Peace- National Capital Region, the concert is their way of commemorating the Maguindanao massacre. “Just as music soothes the savage beast, music calms the anguished soul. We hope that through music, our souls are assuaged. Though it does not mean that we will stop asking for justice.”
“Until justice is served, we will not rest. Such is our commitment to justice.” Pasion concluded.
