For Neri Colmenares, the past five years under the Duterte administration have made him more resolved to stand for his principles. This despite the relentless red-tagging with his photos plastered in several cities, inviting harm to one of the country’s leading human rights lawyers.
Despite not being included in VP Leni’s senatorial slate, Colmenares vows to be ‘strong voice’ for the marginalized
“My resolve to run for the Senate is based on the need to give the poor and marginalized a strong voice in the legislature.”
“We will continue to serve the people, we will continue to fight for a just and prosperous society. It is time for the opposition to unite, unite with the people to end Duterte’s tyranny and dynasty.” — Neri Colmenares, Makabayan senatorial candidate
“This tandem will have disastrous impacts on our democracy and our quality of life as Filipinos, considering their bloody, corrupt, and anti-people records.”
Neri Colmenares, one of the country’s most prominent public interest lawyers, is this year’s awardee for outstanding contribution to human rights by the foremost organization for international legal practitioners, bar associations and law societies.
“Another victory for the youth — a clear manifestation of fighting for rights and injustices of the Filipino people is not unlawful.”
“We are against terrorism but the law [against terrorism] should not violate human rights and the Philippine Constitution.”
“The objective here, as what has been done in other cases, is to confuse, corrupt and crush every one who dares to stand up against Duterte.”
“From Day 1, the respondents only issued general denials, resorting to technicalities instead of answering our petition.”
