  2. It is nice to know that the fruits of the campaign and struggle of the Progressive Filipino People includimg us in the International Community have pave way in the release of the 43 Morong victims of human rights violations in the Philippines. We should continue to campaign for the release of all Filipino Political Detainees.

    Mabuhay!
