[Featured site] DAHAS: Violence, Human Rights, and Democracy in the Philippines

The Third World Studies Center of the University of the Philippines Diliman and the Department of Conflict and Development Studies of Ghent University started in January 2018 the research and advocacy project “Violence, Human Rights, and Democracy in the Philippines.”

This project brings together representatives from the academic community, civil society, and the media into a research network to undertake, initially, a collaborative research from January 2018 to December 2019. The overarching goal is to produce, and subsequently disseminate, rigorous research outputs that can sustain an evidence-based intervention in ongoing public debates in the Philippines about violence and tendencies towards authoritarianism.

With this project, we aim for an empirically informed analysis about the Duterte administration’s particular use of violence in its various iterations to govern the country. We seek to contribute to public debates about the state of violence in the Duterte administration and the Philippines in general. All of us are still grappling to make sense of current events and feel a need for more informed research and analysis that go beyond daily reporting and social media discussions. Amidst the polarized discussions between the opponents and the supporters of the current administration, we wish to make public research outputs that are based on hard evidence, on lived experiences, that will reinvigorate the narratives towards an effective critique of state violence. Mainly a critique of violence as abetted by the state as well as other consequent acts that revolve around the current state of violence. Importantly, this research will serve as the empirical backbone for the advocacy/outreach components of this project.

[Featured site] #RespetoNaman

Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo, UN Women, The Embassy of Sweden in Manila, SPARK! Philippines, and Empower are collaborating for #RespetoNaman, a Nationwide Campaign Against Gender-Based Violence. The goal of the project is to spark a sustainable movement across the nation to eliminate all forms of gender-based violence in the Philippines through campaigning for awareness, empowerment, and policy.

As inspired by the global #MeToo, and #TimesUp Movement and Thailand’s #DontTellMeHowToDress Movement, it will focus on bringing the issue into the mainstream and empowering women to rise up against all forms of gender-based violence, particularly on rape and sexual harassment.

Grounded in the vision of equality, The Office of the Vice President of the Philippines, UN Women, the Embassy of Sweden in Manila, SPARK! Philippines, and Empower work for the elimination of discrimination against girls, empowerment of women, and the protection and promotion of women’s rights. These organizations agree that these issues are impediments in achieving gender equality. Awareness and discussion is the first step in acknowledging that the problem exists, and fixing it.

The project will comprise of different events and programs which would include two big forums, an online campaign, a nationwide caravan, and a localized version of the #DontTellMeHowToDress exhibit. The timeline of the events will be within the global celebration of the 16-days of Activism Against GBV, which is from November 25 to December 10; some events will also extend into the next year.

[Featured Site] Asia Alliance Against Torture

Asia Alliance Against Torture
http://antitortureasia.org/

Asia has high diversity on ethnicity, religion, and economic strata. These facts have been used by many authorities to compromised the violence for the one single order, despite maintaining the diversity. To this end, torture and other form of violence took place in many situations in Asia. The practice of torture has a long historical record. Many entities have been working to combat torture, such as survivor organizations, advocates, NGOs or even politician. However, none of them have been working specifically to combat torture in Asia region thoroughly.

Regardless campaign and legal challenges are raising widely; conscience is improving to minimize the practice of torture in Asia among the states. Many of them are abide or take parties to international standard which contained the prohibition of torture, such as

International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, International Convention Against Torture, International Convention on Elimination of Discrimination Against Women, and many more. Below is the list of the countries in Asia who
already ratified the Convention Against Torture.

The challenges are the implementation, either at the national level and at the international level to provide the report to the Committee Against Torture (CAT) as part of the ratification the CAT. At the national level, some of advocate, have indicated from their works that practice of torture deeply still took places with in the Asia countries. To this matter, since 2015, with the support of Open Society
Foundation, hold 3 rounds of discussions in Bali (Indonesia) and Kathmandu (Nepal) to discuss and checks the how torture happens and faced especially from the strategic litigation point of view. Torture is an issue that lacks public knowledge and needs to come

to the fore on the human rights agenda. This issue also needs to be socialized within the community so people are aware of its occurrence, the rights of individuals and the responsibilities of states in the face of this most heinous of human rights abuse.

In this context, solidarity is very important for and among victims, human rights defenders and the organizations they work for. Human rights defenders and the organizations are coming under significant pressure and work in dangerous and threatening environments. It is therefore important that support is provided in the form of having networks with others.

Upon the situation above, various NGOs from the Asia region initiated to build a coalition to combat torture specifically amongst the Asia countries. Asia Alliance Against Torture can have a positive impact on addressing thematic priorities of UN mechanisms, better leverage for UN advocacy level, also the fact finding mission and making a joint report would be very good for the network.

MAP IT! Report technology-related violence against women – Take Back The Tech

MAP IT! Screen grab from Take Back The Tech website

About

Since 2005 APC been working to strengthen the capacity of women’s rights activists and organisations to use technology tools in their work to end violence against women and to respond to the growing incidence of technology-related violence against women . In 2006, the Take Back the Tech campaign was launched to call on all users of information and communication technologies ICT) – especially women and girls – to take control of technology and strategically use any ICT platform at hand (mobile phones, instant messengers, blogs, websites, digital cameras, email, podcasts and more) for activism against gender-based violence. From 2009 to 2011, this work was further developed to deepen knowledge and actions around these issues. The results of the “Take Back the Tech! To end violence against women” project demonstrated the need to use new tools to ascertain and find solutions to the type of violence women face online.

Through this ongoing work, we found that the most common cases of technology-related VAW documented include cyberstalking, sexual harassment, surveillance, privacy violations and the unauthorised use and manipulation of personal information including images and videos. We found that while these violations are increasing, women and girls who fall victim do not know what to do to stop the abuse, what charges they can report, who they should report to and what help they can get. In many countries policies, regulations or services that respond to these new forms of violence do not exist or are inadequate. The report “Voices from digital spaces” elaborates on these issues in great detail.

Violence is taking place online. Monitoring efforts by governments in many parts of the world on cases of violence against women often omit this critical and growing form of violence. Without documentation, they remain unrecognised, excluded from or little understood in the concerted efforts to end the persistent reality of violence against women all over the world.

Map it!! Join this initiative!

The call to document is a call to bear witness. It is to make the invisible visible. Take Back the Tech! calls women and girls to take control of technology to tell our own stories, create our own testimonies, represent ourselves and shape our own narratives about the violence that women and girls face all over the world.

[Featured site] Teatro Balagtas of Pandacan FB page

Teatro Balagtas of Pandacan

Teatro Balagtas of Pandacan is a community youth theater founded in December 2008. Its members, now numbering 43, are from the ages of 13 to 22. They come from families living in eight barangays of Pandacan and adjacent communities of Paco and Santa Ana districts of Manila. The Teatro members are trained in various theater skills by in-house trainors assisted by the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) which has been a close and significant partner since April 2009. Apart from theater skills training, Teatro members undergo social awareness education and formation on authentic humanist values meant to deepen their relationship with their own inner-selves, their community, the Creator and the environment. The Teatro is meant for self-development of its individual members but, as a collective performing group, it is also meant to entertain and to impart a meaningful social message as it tries to reflect the problems and strivings for change by the community and the larger society.

Exposing the Invisible

The digital age has profoundly transformed the way people find and share information. The Internet is enabling collaboration between activists, hackers and journalists on an unprecedented scale. This has led to previously unimaginable possibilities in investigative reporting. People are newly empowered to uncover hidden information, expose corruption and bring the truth to light.

Through a series of short films, video interviews, guides and resources, Exposing the Invisible looks at different techniques, tools and methods along with the individual practices of those working at the new frontiers of investigation.

We hope that Exposing the Invisible will inspire a new generation of people committed to transparency and accountability.

New movies, interviews, guides and resources will be uploaded to our website regularly. If you have suggestions or projects you would like to tell us about, please come andtalk to usor check out when ascreeningmight be going on near you, or how to host one yourself.

This project would not have been made possible without our sponsors and all the people who have contributed.

[Featured site] Paalam.org – Remembering the victims of drug war

Paalam.org

What is this website?

This website is a eulogy for those killed during the “drug war” policy that began in the Philippines on May 2016; it is an online memorial for those departed through the violence that is the hallmark of this policy.

As the “drug war” continues to claim lives, we hear about these deaths as numbers, violent encounters, or dead bodies. We hope to never forget that these are human lives lost; victims who are loved and mourned, people who had families and friends. We believe we should shift focus on the individual victims, not the acts that killed them, nor the alleged reasons for why their lives were so cruelly ended.

Night after night, in the news we see stories of victims who are found dead on the streets or in their homes. Their deaths are counted up and presented to us as numbers. Our hope is to not leave them recorded as faceless victims, but remembered as individuals — this project is meant to restore their identities.

[Featured Site] Right to Life Facebook Page

right-to-life-fbRight to Life

The term “Right to Life” is based on the philosophy that every person has the right to live and that a human life should not be taken by another human being.

Why we don’t support the return of the Death Penalty in Philippines:

• Not an effective crime-deterrent:
“It’s the certainty of apprehension that’s been demonstrated consistently to be an effective deterrent, not the severity of the ensuing consequences,”
-Daniel Nagin (Professor at Carnegie Mellon University)

• Death Penalty is anti-poor:
Whilst it is easy for the rich to receive quality legal representation, the same cannot be said of the poor. In a country where case results are not decided by the jury, most of the time the law favours the rich.

• Flawed justice system:
Because the justice system is not perfect, wrong conviction is unavoidable.

“The death penalty is the ultimate, irreversible denial of human rights.”
-Amnesty International

[Featured Site] The Martial Law Chronicles Project

The Martial Law Chronicles Project
ML Chronicles copyThe Martial Law Chronicles is a joint project by the Freedom for Media Alternatives (FMA) and the Martial Law Chronicles Team; and endorsed by the Commission on Human Rights (CHR).

WE ARE SEEING A LOT OF SYSTEMATIC HISTORICAL REVISIONISM (NEGATIONISM) IN SOCIAL MEDIA, IT IS TIME THAT WE ADDRESS THIS PROPERLY SO AS TO GIVE JUSTICE TO OUR PAST.

WHAT IS HISTORICAL REVISIONISM (NEGATIONISM)… AND WHY WE NEED TO ADDRESS THIS PLEASE SEE BELOW:

Historical revisionism involves either the legitimate scholastic re-examination of existing knowledge about a historical event, or the illegitimate distortion of the historical record. For the former, i.e. the academic pursuit, see historical revisionism.

This article deals solely with the latter, the distortion of history, which—if it constitutes the denial of historical crimes—is also sometimes called negationism.

In attempting to revise the past, illegitimate historical revisionism may use techniques inadmissible in proper historical discourse, such as presenting known forged documents as genuine; inventing ingenious but implausible reasons for distrusting genuine documents; attributing conclusions to books and sources that report the opposite; manipulating statistical series to support the given point of view; and deliberately mis-translating texts (in languages other than the revisionist’s).

Some countries, such as Germany, have criminalised the negationist revision of certain historical events, while others take a more cautious position for various reasons, such as protection of free speech; still others mandate negationist views.

Notable examples of negationism include Holocaust denial, Armenian Genocide denial, Japanese war crime denial, and Soviet historiography.- From Wikipedia

“He who does not know how to look back at where he came from will never get to his destination.” – Jose Rizal
