Justice sought for EJK victims


Progressive groups will stage a rally today at the Fountain of Justice in Bacolod City to call for justice for the victims of extra-judicial killings, especially the slain farmers, as they commemorate the 32nd anniversary of the Mendiola Massacre in Manila.

The group led by the National Federation of Sugar Workers, will march from the Capitol Lagoon up to the FOJ.

Yesterday, a mass was offered for EJK victims during the “regime” of President Rodrigo Duterte at the Department of Agrarian Reform Provincial Office in Dawis in Bacolod City, Michael dela Concepcion, Bagong Alyansang Makabayan-Negros secretary general, said.

The militants then marched to the FOJ, where they lit candles, as a prelude to their protest today, dela Concepcion added.*
