One billion rise for justice

“The three issues of injustices namely, Aquino’s criminal neglect of victims of calamities, his neo-liberal policies that result in high prices of basic goods and utilities, and government’s unabated corruption, served to further push women and their families deeper into the quagmire of poverty,” said Joms Salvador, secretary general of Gabriela.

Second stage of ‘One Billion Rising’ is about justice – women’s groups

“Justice begins when we speak, release and acknowledge the truth in solidarity and community. One Billion Rising for Justice is an invitation to break free from confinement, obligation, shame, guilt, grief, pain, humiliation, rage and bondage. It is a call to bring on revolutionary justice.”
