Mother welcomes political prisoner-son at Quezon City hospital

Poet, songwriter, singer, journalist and activist Ericson Acosta was illegally arrested in Northern Samar on February 13, 2011 while conducting research for peasant organizations. He has not been arraigned despite having spent more than two years in jail.

Ericson Acosta was welcomed by his mother at the National Kidney and Transplant Institute where he was flown after winning a court reprieve to enable him to seek treatment for his kidney ailment.
