[Campaign] #MassTestingNowPH

Our Demand to the Duterte Government

President Duterte,

We, the Filipino people, plead for your urgent action in response to the COVID-19 crisis our nation is facing. Here are our demands:

1. START MASS TESTING NOW. Implement free mandatory mass testing nationwide and mobilize the local government units (LGUs) to set-up local testing centers.

2. Distribute free face masks, hand soaps, alcohol, drinking water rations, and vitamins to every barangay. Conduct massive disinfection in high-traffic locations regularly.

3. Secure necessary medical equipment needed by our health workers and hospitals such as face masks, gloves, ventilators, personal protective equipment (PPE), and oxygen tanks. Engage the private hospitals to share their medical equipment, PPE, and facilities.

4. Build temporary quarantine and health centers (convert convention centers, gymnasiums, etc.). Partner with the private sector to provide accommodation services (e.g., lease of hotels). Allow the homeless to stay in evacuation centers located in barangays and municipalities.

5. Allocate all available discretionary funds to aid the Health sector. Approve the rechanneling of intelligence and confidential funds of different government agencies to the Department of Health (DOH) through a special session of Congress.

6. Provide immediate comprehensive medical training for the military, police, and security forces. Maintain civilian leadership by appointing a trained health worker to lead every checkpoint and security team. Mobilize the military and police to bring test kits, face masks, and basic goods to every barangay.

7. Order the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) to require the private sector to give additional paid leaves for their workers, both permanent and contractual.

8. Guarantee cash grants for individuals/workers and small businesses. Enact a monetary stimulus package through the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP).

9. Impose a payment freeze and disconnection moratorium for utilities (water, electricity, internet) until the Code Red Sublevel 2 is lifted. Declare rent payments and evictions on hold.

10. Set-up a centralized information source that will broadcast daily briefings of health officials for all important government announcements, statistical data, location information, and history of movement of confirmed patients for transparency and public knowledge.


Join us as we call on the government to decisively end the COVID-19 threat through Mass Testing, early detection, and immediate medication coupled by the provision of various economic relief and assistance.

[Event] Day of International Solidarity Against OceanaGold Ph Inc. -SEED

Join us in our twitter party, calling President Rodrigo Duterte to #StopMiningInDidipio and immediately cancel @OceanaGold ‘s FTAA. #EndMiningInDidipio!

CANCEL OCEANAGOLD’S MINING CONTRACT NOW

Respect the people’s will! Stop illegal operations in Didipio mines!

Environmental and human rights groups in the Philippines support the resistance led by the Didipio Earth Savers Movement (DESAMA) and Didipio-Watch against destructive and irresponsible mining in Nueva Vizcaya.

Last 21 June 2019, farmers and indigenous peoples from the village of Didipio, in Kasibu town, Nueva Vizcaya set-up a peoples barricade to prevent the illegal operations of Didipio mines, owned by OceanaGold Philippines, Inc. (OGPI). OGPI’s mining contract (Financial and Technical Assistance Agreement # 1) expired last June 20, 2019, and failed to secure a renewal of this agreement.

We demand the following, in support to the struggle being led by DESAMA, Didipio-Watch and other local organizations in Didipio, Kasibu, Nueva Vizcaya:

1. Pres. Rodrigo Duterte must immediately cancel OGPI’s contract and order the stop of illegal mining operations of OGPI. Since its mining contract has expired and has failed to secure a renewal, OGPI has no right to continue posing a threat to the forests and water resources in Nueva VIzcaya.

2. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) must immediately revoke its favorable endorsement for the application of FTAA renewal. DENR has failed to ensure that precautionary principles are enforced in the review and assessment of the mining contract, and has merely relied on technical compliance of OGPI in submitting its application for renewal.

3. The national government must respect and recognize the autonomy of local governments affected by mining operations of OGPI. All three local governments impacted by OGPI’s operations have expressed their opposition, and this is a truthful reflection of the will of the people.

4. The National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) should comprehensively conduct in a transparent, inclusive and participative manner all consultations, field based investigations and negotiations for the free, prior and informed consent (FPIC) of all indigenous peoples in the affected areas, including migrant IPs who have settled and lived in area for more than four decades.

5. The DENR must demand a new and updated Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) from OGPI and issue a new Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) as part of the requirement for the renewal of the FTAA.

[Campaigns] Holcim workers demand justice -SENTRO

For years contractual workers at the Holcim cement plant in Davao have demanded regular employment, in line with Philippine law. Last year they filed a complaint with the Department of Labor and Employment, however in March 140 contract workers were laid off, while non-union workers were offered new employment contracts. Since then the workers have been picketing the factory, but in May they found out the owner of the plant – multinational cement giant LafargeHolcim – is planning on selling the factory to notoriously anti-union Filipino conglomerate San Miguel. On May Day the workers’ picket line was violently attacked by thugs, and the union is convinced that Holcim is responsible for the attack. These workers need justice, not violence and repression.

[Campaign] #KarapatDapat na Agenda, #SampuSegurado -PAHRA

The upcoming mid-term polls present an exceptional opportunity for the Filipino people who are now burdened with relentless price hikes, disease epidemics, food shortage, environmental crises, internal conflict and brazen loss of life due to extrajudicial killings, the TRAIN law, Martial Law, misinformation and widespread impunity.

The 2019 elections is a defining moment for the aggrieved Filipino masses, whether we move forward as a nation hoping for better lives or as doomed souls, is literally in the hands of every voter inside the polling booths come May 13. At this juncture, we simply cannot afford a “business as usual” approach to this critical political exercise.

The highly polarized electoral campaigns are split between pro and anti-administration candidates, both claiming to possess the best qualifications to lead our people. The environment with which the electoral campaigns are being waged, do not provide clarity nor direction for our people; our streets are saturated with campaign paraphernalia some of which, not only violate COMELEC rules, but pose hazards to the safety of the commuting public; our digital spaces are filled with disinformation about the candidates and what they stand for; our youth especially the first-time voters are bereft of guidance in the kind of society they are voting for.

Amidst the dearth of meaningful discourse and imagination on the future outcome of the polls, the human rights community led by the Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA) wish to introduce a ten-point agenda which reflect the various sectoral demands of our grassroots members nationwide. This ten-point agenda is called #Sampusigurado, which means that implementing the agenda will certainly lead to real change and a strong democracy. The “slate” is carried by the campaign called “KARAPAT-DAPAT: KARAPATAN DAPAT”, which appeals for a recognition of doing what is right and just.

PAHRA calls on national and local candidates to support the #Sampusigurado by incorporating the ten-point agenda in their platforms. Similarly, we call on the public to demand that candidates adopt this human rights agenda, and to vote for those who do, in order to prevent further erosion of our democratic traditions and processes, and build the future with decent, competent leaders with effective programs.

The ten-point agenda are:

  1. Human rights-based governance;
  2. Compliance with international human rights treaties and instruments
  3. Access to justice, accountability and ending impunity;
  4. Protection for vulnerable sectors;
  5. Protection for human rights defenders;
  6. Attainment of sustainable and inclusive peace and security;
  7. Enforcement of food sovereignty, decent livelihood and sustainable housing;
  8. Enforcement of laws towards a healthy and safe environment
  9. Enforcement of a people-centered development program; and
  10. Protection against foreign aggression and exploitation.

Protect Freedom of Expression Campaign, ‘Wag Matakot Magpahayag!-HRonlinePH.com

The Human Rights Online Philippines (HRonlinePH) www.hronlineph.com presents its project, “Protection and empowerment of human rights defenders in the Philippines”, supported by the British Embassy Manila, and key information on its experiences supporting the use of information technology in campaign and advocacy among communities of human rights defenders (HRDs) in the Philippines.

The project was launched last Thursday, August 31, 2017 at Pres. R. V. Palma, 105-106 function room, University Hotel, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City.

As information and communication technologies have become central to organizing, campaigning and day-to-day communication in human rights work, many reports and cases has concurrently documented and verified the increased use of technologies to monitor communications and harass human rights defenders, restricting their rights to freedom of opinion and expression, both online and offline.

This will be an opportunity to discuss experiences of human rights defenders who are often harassed and intimated for publishing human rights related information on websites, blogs or social networking sites, or for criticizing authorities or government policies, both online or offline.

[Campaign] Mamamayan Ayaw sa Karahasan (MASK Campaign) -TFDP

MAMAMAYAN AYAW SA KARAHASAN (MASK CAMPAIGN)

Lumalaganap ang KULTURA NG KARAHASAN pinangungunahan ng pamahalaan pa mismo sa bansa. Sumasalanta ito sa marami sa kasalukuyan at mamanahin ng mga susunod na henerasyon ang malalim na epekto nito sa mamamayan. Bukod sa ito ay tahasang paglabag sa karapatang pantao, nag-iiwan ito ng malalim na takot sa mamamayang ang nais ay mabuhay sa isang lipunang payapa at maunlad.

Ang mga KARAHASAN sa mamamayan ay maraming mukha. Mula sa lumalalang patayan sa ilalim ng polisiyang KILL KILL KILL hanggang sa karahasan sa pangkabuhayan ng mamamayan. Mararahas na polisiyang pagpatay din ang tanging solusyon, mga mungkahing batas na sa halip na magmalasakit ay nais pang magparusa sa ating mga menor de edad. Mga hakbang na dumadahas sa kalikasan, kasaysayan at batayang pangangailangan ng marami. Maging ang pagkahumaling sa batas militar na sisikil sa mamamayan.

Ang mga may mabubuting hangarin at tutol sa lumalalang karahasan sa lipunan ang pinasasama pa ang imahe ng organisadong makinaryang ang hangarin ay bumuo ng KULTURA NG TAKOT at PANANAHIMIK. Kung ayaw mo sa karahasan at may malasakit ka pa sa kalalagayan ng bansa – susuportahan mo ang kampanya laban dito. Dahil dalawa lang ang pagpipilian, sa KARAHASAN ka ba o HINDI.

Ang MAMAMAYAN AYAW SA KARAHASAN (MASK CAMPAIGN) ay isang kampaniya ng Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) laban sa mga MARAHAS NA POLISIYA ng Gobyerno. Hihikayatin ang mabubuting mamamayan na itakwil ang kasamaan ng namumuong KULTURA ng KARAHASAN na sumasalanta sa marami at salungat sa isang lipunang may takot sa diyos, mapayapa, maunlad at makatao.

LAYUNIN

Nais ng kampaniya na mabasag o maudlot ang tangkang pagpapatahimik sa mas malawak na bilang na mamamayang tutol sa KARAHASANG nangyayari ngayon sa bansa. Sa pamamagitan ng pagtatangkang abutin ang mga ordinaryong mamamayan na ayaw sa anumang karahasan sa lipunan at magbuklod upang sama-samang masalag at mapatigil ang KARAHASAN.

Nais din natin na magtulungan na maipaalam sa marami ang alternatibang pamamahala nakabatay sa karapatang pantao at “Restorative Justice”.

Nais nating ang MASK ay makaambag sa iba pang mga inisyatiba at pagkukusa at makadagdag sa tinig ng mamamayan laban sa anumang KARAHASAN.

ANG ATING PANAWAGAN SA MAMAMAYANG PILIPINO

Mabuting mamamayan at may pagmamalasakit sa kapwa, MAGKAISA. Ayawan ang anumang KARAHASAN nang sama-sama.

ANG ATING SIMBOLO

Ang maskarang puti na may luhang dugo ay nagpapakita na tayo ay ordinaryong tao na lumuluha dahil sa nangyayaring karahasan sa lipunan.

Maskara na nangangahulugan din ng kawalang pagkakilalan upang maging mukha ninuman at madaling makiisa ang sinumang may nais. Habang magbibigay din ito ng pagkakataon para sa mga nais magprotesta ngunit nangangamba, magsisilbing proteksiyon mula sa pangdadahas ng mga hindi sang-ayon sa atin, lalo na mula sa mararahas na tagapagtanggol ng KARAHASAN.

Ang MASKARA ay maaari ring mag-iba ng kulay bilang simbolo ng sektor o isyung apektado ng KARAHASAN. Halimbawa ay Berde para sa protesta laban sa KARAHASAN SA KALIKASAN at sa mga TAGAPAGTANGGOL. Lilak para sa protesta laban sa KARAHASAN SA KABABAIHAN. O kaya ay RAINBOW para sa protesta laban sa KARAHASAN SA LGBT.

SINU-SINO ANG MAARING MAGING MASK?

Lahat ng may mabuting puso at malasakit sa kapwa tao at sa bansa at handang makiisa sa ating kampaniya ay maaring maging MAMAMAYAN AYAW SA KARAHASAN.

Basta tutol ka sa KARAHASAN at nais umambag sa anumang abot ng makakaya sa kampaniya.

ANO ANG GAGAWIN NG NAIS MAKIISA

[Campaign] Human Rights Day 2016: Global Day of Action in Defense of the Right to Life -iDEFEND

Human Rights Day 2016: Global Day of Action in Defense of the Right to Life

global-placard-copyCAMPAIGN ADVISORY
In response to President Rodrigo Duterte’s blatant attack on human rights, continuing and rampant killings, railroading of death bills (bills to restore death penalty and lowering of the age of criminal liability), ordering the Marcos Burial in LNMB, sexist attack on women, while failing to fulfill campaign promises like end of ENDO, genuine FOI and the lack of decisive programs to end poverty etc. iDEFEND (In Defense of Human Rights and Dignity Movement) enjoins all human rights defenders and the public, including Filipinos and solidarity groups in different countries to unite and creatively protest against the rampant killings and violent governance of Duterte while failing to fulfill campaign promises on economic and social wellbeing of the Filipinos to a Global campaign to defend the RIGHT TO LIFE in the Philippines.

On December 10, 2016 (International Human Rights Day 2016) Global Day of Action in Defense of the Right to Life, iDEFEND calls on our people to strongly oppose the resurgence of authoritarian rule even as it feels like martial law is already here, as evidenced by now almost 6,000 victims of extrajudicial killings. We can only continue our work for human rights and sustainable development if our freedoms to express, report, organize, assemble and conduct public actions are preserved, and our civil liberties are guaranteed.

OUR MESSAGE:
OUR ALTERNATIVE IS HUMAN RIGHTS. iDEFEND has always asserted the need for a human rights based governance system that addresses the root cause of criminality, and guarantees a sustainable and people centered development. We push for a harm reduction strategy in the approach to the drugs issue: institutionalizing a public health framework, a complete halt to the targeting and killing of suspected drug users, and rule-based law enforcement procedures in apprehending drug traders.

iDEFEND supports the implementation of an economic agenda based on social justice: an end to contractual labor, land conversions, demolitions, internal displacement, and militarization. The defense of the right to life refers to the protection of both the physical integrity as well as the ability of a person to lead a life of dignity. The right to life requires the absence of fear for our lives and our loved ones; the right to life requires job security, land security, housing rights, a sustainable environment, long-term economic opportunities, a justice system that works, and access to health care and education for all.

iDEFEND strongly condemns the revision of history, the blatant treachery against the Filipino people with no regard for the victims of Martial Law by allowing the burial of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (LNMB).

We encourage concern Filipinos, HRDs and solidarity movements and groups from all over the world to join this action by:
1.    Holding creative protest actions, events and activities wherever you are (Philippine embassies, freedom parks, offices, at home).
2.    Change profile picture and cover photos of your social media accounts. (see attached)
3.    Our general calls: KARAPATAN HINDI KARAHASAN!, STOP THE KILLINGS!, KABUHAYAN HINDI PATAYAN! NEVER AGAIN TO MARTIAL LAW, NEVER AGAIN TO THE MARCOSES!
4.    Upload photos of your action online and use the hashtags #KarapatanHindiPatayan #StopTheKillingsPH #HumanRightsDay2016
5.    Pls wear black

Please message us and send details of your December 10 action for close coordination, announcement and media projection.
