“…let justice flow like a stream, and righteousness like a river that never goes dry.” (Amos, 5:24)
To continuously call for justice, every Holy Wednesday, the Families of Victims of Involuntary Disappearance (FIND) annually hold their Lenten activity dubbed as Kalbaryo ng Kawalan ng Katarungan.
The monument, which depicts a woman holding a torch along with a child carrying a picture of his father, immortalizes the undying hope of many families to be reunited with their disappeared loved ones.
It was unveiled on July 13,1994. A long list of victims’ names are engraved in granite pannels surrounding the monument. It was named the “Bantayog ng mga Desaparacidos.”
HRonlinePH supports the relatives of victims of enforced disappearances and human rights advocates’ call for the immediate enactment of an Anti-Enforced Disappearance law that would criminalize this despicable crime and put perpetrators in jail.
