Human rights defenders from around the world gathered in Manila last week to consolidate “protection platforms” for human rights workers. The meeting highlighted various protection initiatives on the ground and the challenges for their implementation.

The event tracked various organizational protection systems and mechanisms as stopgap measures against violations of the rights of activists. It also mapped out effective engagement and cooperation with the newly appointed UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders.

In his speech, Michel Forst, the UN rapporteur, noted that Asian human rights defenders are the most threatened, intimidated or investigated.

They are also the most harassed or criminalized, and the most likely to be prevented from travelling.

Such violations and denials of fundamental freedoms have been aimed to discredit, silence and eliminate human rights defenders in the region, he said.

Halimbawa Lamang (Ang Pilipinas ang Palestine)

Halimbawa kung noong 1948, ay Pilipinas ang pinili na lugar para magmigrate ang milyon na Jews mula europe na biktima ng persecution at holocaust.. papayag ba kayo?

Katulad ng mga Palestinians papayag siguro tayo, dahil maawin din tayo.

Halimbawa dahil nakaplano pala silang mang-agaw at sa dami na ng jews na pumasok ay dahan-dahan na nila tayong tinataboy, at inaangkin ang ating lupain at ari-arian. at ang ayaw aalis ay papatayin, bata, matanda at mga babae katulad ng ginawa nila sa deir yassin massacre?

Halimbawa dahil hindi natin napaghandaan (dahil hindi natin alam na ang pagiging refugee pala ay balatkayo lamang pero ang totoong plano ng mga Jews ay agawin ang bansa natin) natalo tayo sa civil war at buong Pilpinas ay inangkin nila.
