Why the rush? | Family of peace advocate Casambre asks CIDG on premature fly-out to Davao

“We wonder what the rush is all about. Of course they may cite court orders and logistics. But really, whisking away from lawyers, friends and kin a sick, frail and gentle though firm old man of peace like that to a far-flung place where they allege him to have murdered and attempted to kill government soldiers?”

Peace advocates, kin of detained peace consultant call for his release

“I would like to think that the real reason I am being detained – indefinitely if the kingpins of national security have their way – is that somehow I am contributing my share to the people’s struggles to overhaul this unjust and undemocratic system. Only diehard reactionaries would condemn this as a criminal act.”
