5 Months after Maguindanao Massacre still no Justice

April 23, Manila – “Never Forget” this was the cry of the families of 58 individuals massacred in Maguindanao last November 23, 2010, and until now after five months justice is not yet served. Headed by National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) along with fellow media men, advocates and family members of those who was killed marches from Morayta in front of Far Eastern University to Don Chino Roces Bridge (formerly Mendiola Bridge), reminding Malacañang of the its duty to provide justice to the death due to political killings and also condemning Department of Justice (DOJ) acting Secretary Alberto Agra after dropping the multiple charges against Zaldy and Akmad Ampatuan.

From the 58 massacred 32 were media men which according to Inday Espina-Varona of NUJP that as of 1986 there are 137 journalists killed and 100 of it is during the Arroyo administration (since 2001) including the Maguindanao Massacre.

Press Secretary Crispulo Icban Jr. along with the Malacanang Press Corps shows supports on the activity done by NUJP and fellow media men and advocates in commemoration of the 5th month of Maguindanao Massacre. Icban assures that they will be helping in seeking justice for the families of those who where killed and President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will be supporting them on their plight. He firmly says that the families of the victims must not lose hope in their quest for justice.

Here is the complete video of the activity done last April 23:

Aside from the protest and candle light activity done in Manila, there are same activity done in NUJP chapters in Baguio, Bulacan, Pampanga, Lucena, Bohol, Bacolod, Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, Kidapawan, Iloilo and Bukidnon.

Philippine justice system is so complex -- really disheartening.
Justice delayed is injustice.
