For Memory, Truth and Justice


The Philippines

Over 1,600 people were disappeared in The Philippines during the Marcos dictatorship and since. None of them has ever been found. The successive governments that have followed the Marcos regime have failed to bring both light as to the fate of the disappeared, and justice. The families of the disappeared have received neither compensation or redress of any kind. Yet, they continue struggling for truth and justice. Meanwhile, human rights persist, people continue to be extra-judicially executed and murdered as well as tortured and imprisoned for political reasons.
