December 10, 2017 – International Human Rights Day
On the occasion of the 2017 International Human Rights Day, the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders and Miriam College Center for Peace Education are re-circulating this Global Appeal on the Marawi Siege, Extra Judicial Killings and Human Rights Violations in the Philippines signed by 192 concerned individuals from 40 countries. The rise in the killings of human rights defenders and political activists in the Philippines in recent weeks continues to put to test the fundamental principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
We appeal to you to support the non-profit initiatives that support victims and survivors of human rights violations and disasters listed on this appeal namely: the Justice Advocates of Miriam Humanitarian Fund, Baigani, Art Relief Mobile Kitchen, and the Maranaw People Development Center.
We urge everyone to continue to oppose the human rights violations and call on the Philippine government to honor its responsibility to respect, protect, and fulfill their obligations under international human rights laws.
