• 100 political prisoners fast for 7 days


    A hundred political prisoners started their seven-day fasting on Wednesday to commemorate the International Day of Solidarity which will end on December 10, the International Human Rights Day. Yesterday, members of the International League of People’s Struggle (ILPS) went to the Manila Regional Trial Court to register their support to political prisoners who are facing multiple murder charges like Bejito Tiamzon, Wilma Austria-Tiamzon, Randall Echanis, Raphael Baylosis, and Vicente Ladlad. As of November 2014, there are 419 political prisoners in the country’s jails. Out of the cited number, 220 were arrested during the term of President Benigno Aquino 3rd.
