“We expect nothing less than a conviction especially those directly responsible and involved in the killings. Otherwise, the mockery of justice and the culture of impunity will continue to reign and worsen.”

“The delivery of justice for Ampatuan Massacre victims will act like a beam of light shone into a great darkness that is the escalating climate of fear and impunity under the Duterte administration.”

Sa isang sitwasyong patuloy na pinapaslang ang mga peryodista at manggagawa sa midya at kinokompromiso ang kalayaan sa pamamahayag, ano pa ba ang puwedeng gawin ng mga ordinaryong taong katulad natin para mabago ang kasalukuang kalakaran? Malinaw na kailangan ang mahigpit na pakikipagkaisa sa iba’t ibang sektor ng lipunan.
Children of the victims of the #AmpatuanMassacre perform a song at the massacre site in sitio Masalay, barangay Salman, Ampatuan town in Maguindanao, Nov. 17 to commemorate the 10th year of the single deadliest attack on journalists in recent history.
“The government and the state remain unbothered by the massacre, considering they were the victims of the agents of state itself.”
“If there would be no conviction, I’m sorry to say press freedom is dead.”
“It is our way of keeping the fight for justice alive, as well as condemning all violations of human rights. And hopefully, before all our candles run out, justice would be given to all victims.”
“We remember Ampatuan Massacre but we have to bring back the rage.”
“And while a closure to this tragedy is most welcome, we stress that it should not in any way detract from the State’s continued accountability for its continued failure to bring an end to the threats and attacks against journalists and to give justice to the more than 100 other victims of media killings since 1986.”
