AJLPP HAILS PHILIPPINE SUPREME COURT DECISION FOR THE PROVISIONAL RELEASE OF SATUR OCAMPO (tags)
The Alliance for A Just and Lasting Peace in the Philippines (AJLPP) shared the progressive Filipino democratic movement joy and relief over the Supreme Court decision for the detained BAYAN MUNA Congress person Satur Ocampo. It proved US President and jurist John Quincy Adams statement; “ The independence of the court safeguards the independence of the nation.” While we savor the tactical victory we are not completely happy.

We should exert all efforts to free all political prisoners and stop the political persecution under the US- Arroyo regime.
