5th Human Rights Pinduteros’ Choice Awards
We are connected now more than ever before.
As our way of showing gratitude to our contributors, partners and networks in their continuous support for the success of the Human Rights Online Philippines or HRonlinePH.com, we are holding the 5th Human Rights Pinduteros’ Choice Awards.
The HRonlinePH.com http://hronlineph.com is a site specialized to promoting and protecting human rights in the Philippines through Information Resources Online.
For the fifth time since 2011, the HRonlinePH.com will recognize the remarkable actions of human rights defenders in their ability to share ideas and band together through the internet for the common cause to- INSPIRE, INFORM, MOBILIZE- for promotion, assertion and defence of human rights.
This event is our contribution to the commemoration of the International Human Rights Day through online human rights awareness and polling campaign which interested individuals and groups would be best able to find ways to encourage more followers to read their human rights articles and campaigns etc. and views on the various websites shared by human rights organizations and networks.
With the 5th Human Rights Pinduteros’ Choice Awards theme, “Social media as a medium for expression, as a tool for social change- social media has become an essential tool for human rights defenders wishing to reach as many people as possible. And the ways that Filipinos have made good and innovative use of social media are evident and have drastically changed the landscape of human interaction.
For Filipinos, social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts are for more than just posting, liking and reading through the feeds- social media has proved to be powerful in many other ways from Pope Francis visit here in the Philippines which ignited a social media frenzy, turning the “selfie” and the combined power of social media into a form of protest, the phenomenal #AlDub, disaster response such as #LandoPH, to campaign for protection of the rights of indigenous peoples and Lumads way of life #StopLumadKillings.
While we are so driven by these information and data in the internet, we often overlook the human aspects of our human rights campaigns. That we see it crucial that we begin this process of delivering real human experiences on the Internet and that our campaign relies on online and offline actions which will highlight the 5th Human Rights Pinduteros’ Choice Awards, which give recognition to exceptional individuals and organizations in recognition of their achievement in defending all human rights through online and offline.
