Los Angeles – The Alliance Philippines condemns the fact that while the Aquino regime is waging a ruthless war against the Lumad of Mindanao using vigilante and paramilitary groups formed,trained and being used by the AFP.

We in the Alliance Philippines based in the United States condemn the brutal massacre of 5 Lumads in Pantucan, Bukidnon and the Surigao Massacre of Emerito Samarca, Executive Director of the Alternative Learning Center for Agriculture and Livelihood Development, Jionel Campos, Chair of local org MAPASU and his cousin Aurelio Sinzo by the Mahagat-Bagani paramilitary group in Surigao Del Sur.

Flagrant Human Rights Violations

Although the 1987 Constitution explicitly banned the formation of Vigilante and Paramilitary groups, The Aquino III Regime has violated it time and time again by encouraging the AFP to establish such group and used it in their war against the Lumads.

The Moros and the Lumad groups have long resisted militarization and the assault of foreign big mining firms.Continued Human Rights ViolationsThe Aquino regime is not expected to denounce the killings.Human Rights Violations.

On the contrary, ithe US-Aquino III Regime encourages these rights violations. They continue to launch unrelenting military operations in Mindanao and form Vigilante and Paramilitary Groups like the Amara,Mahagat -Bagani that terrorizes the areas where the minorities live both in the North and South of the Philippines.

The Alliance is one with the people of Mindanao and the other parts of the Philippines in demanding that military and paramilitary groups should now be pulled out of the communities.

Defend Human Rights in the Philippines!
