GMA: Stop Political Killings

March 27, 2009


President Arroyo has finally reacted to recent events spotlighting the deplorable state of humasn rights across ‘her realm’.

Interestingly she used the graduation rites of new policemen to acknowledge the spate of “political killings.”

This writer hopes Mrs. Arroyo realizes that words alone will not correct the injustices.

Only resolute action can stop the growing perception if not reality that there is state sponsored terrorism in the Philippines.

The situation has become so bad that many think her reign has far exceeded the atrocities committed during the Marcos era in half the time it took him to earn the monicker “Marcos, Hitler, Dikdator, Tuta.”

In reporting Mrs. Arroyo’s remarks, the Philippine Star has even caricatured the unspoken reaction of the audience at the Philippine National Police Academy.


Even those in the uniformed services know they are the usual suspects in the dark human rights landscape of the Philippines.
