CTUHR is committed to the cause of advancing genuine, democratic, nationalist and militant trade unionism. It is against all forms of deception and coercion that seeks to derail this cause. The Center believes that repression can and has taken on different and subtle forms like labour legislations, and flexible employment schemes, amongst others and therefore devotes herself to exposing these devious moves.

TASK FORCE DETAINEES OF THE PHILIPPINES (TFDP)
It was in 1974 that the Association of Major Religious Superiors of the Philippines (AMRSP) established the Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) to assist political prisoners, at a time when most organizations were banned. The AMRSP reflected on a survey which showed the presence of political prisoners in all regions of the country. The political detainees, most of whom where subjected to torture, had families who were placed under surveillance anf from whom money was extorted purportedly to facilitate better treatment and/or their release from detention.
TFDP then provided moral and spiritual support to the political prisoners, assisted them in their material needs, documented their situation as well as worked for theirm just trial and speedy release. Prisoners, on various occasions, conducted hunger strikes to push for better jail conditions and immediate actions for their release. TFDP was almost always there to help. Relatives were eager to have sisters or nuns with them when visiting the detainees in the jails, since it seemed that some respect to the habit still prevailed in the military ranks.
