A vigil protest was staged yesterday by members of progressive organizations under the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan at the Fountain of Justice in Bacolod City to condemn what they called the rampant filing of fabricated charges against its leaders, Christian Tuayon of Bayan-Negros, said yesterday.
Tuayon who was among the 52 persons implicated in the killing of an Army lieutenant in Cadiz City two years ago, said the theme of the vigil is “Kampuhan: People’s Vigil Against Political Repression.”
This is their first protest this year and it will also serve as the opening salvo of various activities and their continued efforts to call for justice for human rights violations, he said.
The vigil is joined by members of Bayan, National Federation of Sugar Workers, KilusangMagbubukidngPilipinas, Kilusang Mayo Uno, Karapatan, and Promotion of Church and People's Response. *LTG
