PAHRA to commemorate Martial Law at U.P. Diliman's Sunken Garden

PAHRA (Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates), families of Martial Law victims and other Human Rights Defenders will gather to Inform, Inspire and to Remember Martial Law 40 years after it was first declared on September 21, 1972 by the ousted Dictator Ferdinand Marcos. The event will take place this Saturday, April 21, 2012 from 7a.m. – U.P. Diliman's Sunken Garden.

This activity is a continuation of PAHRA's  national campaign to Remember ML @ 40.
Every 21st of the month, from March 21 until September 21 of this year, PAHRA shall strive to have the country’s younger generation remember the dark years of the martial law period through a series of jogging-running-walking-biking-kite flying, and sharing activities.

The overall aim of this campaign is to compel the Philippine Congress to urgently pass the Compensation Bill for Victims of Human Rights Violation almost three decades after the Marcos Dictatorship was forcefully terminated through a successful People’s Power Uprising on February 25, 1986.
