“We urge law enforcement authorities to do their part so that the killing rampage of these armed paramilitary groups can be immediately stopped.”
Grief, anger and indignation sent protesters out to the streets last week, calling for justice for victims of killings by paramilitary and military groups in Mindanao, and other parts of the country.
“These killings were not isolated case. These are part of the serial killings happening now in Mindanao, and in some parts of the country, whose perpetrators are military elements and their own-created militia.”
Paramilitary groups, suspected of collusion with the military, have killed five people in five days, and caused massive forced evacuation.
