On Human Rights


"The Philippine human rights situation in 2005 can be characterized by the wanton use of repression and state terror by a scandal-rocked President desperately clinging to power in the face of the people's rejection."



"Human rights are highly mutable, kaleidoscopic even, and they depend for their special character on the character of the community which recognizes, enforces, and needs them to remain visible."
- Carmen Guerrero-Nakpil


"In the Philippines, the concept of human rights can be said to be deeply rooted in its history and in the ever enriching and enriched culture of Filipino society."
- Andres Cristobal Cruz, Artist, Writer
