Support the cause, sign the petition, Justice for Rolando Pango
"This is a grim reminder that in certain industries and sectors like sugar plantations the Philippines is a dangerous place for trade unionists," said Josua Mata, General Secretary of IUF-affiliated union federation SENTRO and co-convener of NAGKAISA, the broadest coalition of labor groups in the Philippines.
NAGKAISA! is challenging the culture of impunity which effectively sanctions extra-judicial killings and other human rights violations against union members and leaders. The PM and Nagkaisa are calling on the national and local governments to render immediate justice in the Pango case and will be raising his assassination with the Tripartite Industrial Council (TIPC) and the Department of Justice panel investigating the murders of labour activists.
YOU CAN SUPPORT THEM - SEND A MESSAGE TO THE GOVERNMENT OF THE PHILIPPINES CALLING FOR AN URGENT INVESTIGATION AND PROSECUTION OF THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE KILLING
