Shit"FOR a full minute, the nine-year-old boy could not speak. But when the words finally came, so did the tears.
there are two sides to an armed conflict. yes, the military is superior in arms and intelligence. but you can't have killings and violations with only one side shooting. of course we denounce the military and rightly so, precisely because of its superior numbers and because government has the primary responsibility to protect and promote human rights as signatory to UN instruments. but why is this report from the church organizations silent on "the other side"? think it over. you can't talk peace and human rights by turning a blind eye to the accountability of both sides.
tama si peregrine.
suporta ako pero sa dulo,
hindi lang naman mga state actors
ang dapat kundenahin...isama na dapat
pati mga non-state actors who projects
well na sila para sa masa.
tama naman kayo pareho eh... pero nilagay ko yung first two paragraphs dun sa article kasi harrowing... tinamaan ako talaga. sana mas aware yung mga tao kung ano yung mga nangyayari.
what other side of this story do we want to hear? exactly how the 9 year-old kid pissed of these soldiers so much that they made him dig his own grave? we hear enough of how the government is always saying that they have terrorist factions in the country under control.they just don't tell us how. I mean, there is such a thing as 'due process'. and it definitely does not involve torture and forced disappearances...I for one wasn't aware that such things still happen in my country. And it's kind of worrying that foreigners were the only ones who cared enought to bring light to this situation. . . sorry po sa litanya pero had to let that one out.
