NCCP Supports Campaign to Free All Political Prisoners, Join the Campaign

“I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”
Luke 9:40

The declaration and pursuit of justice in the Philippines is a continuing apostolate of the National Council of Churches in the Philippines, for as long as people are unjustly vexed. We recognize the importance of relating with church bodies in countries similarly situated. We value immensely the solidarity of people and church agencies advocating the upholding of human rights everywhere. A violation of human rights anywhere is a violation of human rights everywhere.

Wherewith, I issue this appeal for you to stay on course with us by signing on to the enclosed signature campaign. Our similar endeavors in the past contributed enormously in upholding peace and justice.

We are calling for the general, unconditional and omnibus amnesty to all political prisoners in the country. It has been done before it can be done again.

In the name of the 354 political prisoners as of June 2011, and in the name of all that is just and peaceful, we sincerely covet your support.


General Secretary
