GABRIELA NETWORK AND THE NATIONAL LAWYERS GUILD PRESENT:
An all-women human rights delegation's
report back from the Philippines
Over 755 activists have been killed in the Philippines since Gloria Macapagal Arroyo took office in 2001. Hundreds more have been harassed, displaced and/or disappeared. Of these over half came from the organized opposition movement. 80 of those killed were women - half murdered while working as GABRIELA Women's Party organizers, one of the only women's electoral parties in the world.
In May 2006, GABRIELA Network USA organized an all-women human rights delegation with lawyers from the Center for Constitutional Rights, the National Lawyers Guild and the International Association of Democratic Lawyers to investigate.
We invite the Bay Area community to the West Coast release of their findings, with an update on the current situation in the Philippines.
Join us to support the women in the Philippines in their quest for justice!
