“With all boldness, as always so now also, Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain”. (Philippians 1. 20-21) We, bishops, priests and faithful of the Iglesia Filipina Independiente, are once again pained as two of our lay leaders became victims of the spate of senseless killings in the country. Our hearts bleed as we remember in prayers our brothers Benjamin Bayles and Jovelito Agustin, who were both killed for standing firmly for the cause of justice and peace in our land.
Gabriela in Japan to probe alleged rape of Filipina (tags)
Gabriela party-list Representative Liza Maza flew to Japan Wednesday to pursue a “quest for justice” for a Filipina migrant worker allegedly raped by a US soldier in southern Okinawa. Maza, who leads a mission team from the women party-list group, left at 7 a.m. with the mother of the 22-year-old Filipina, identified only as Hazel. “We are sending the team off with a message to Hazel that Filipinos are behind her in her fight for justice,” Gabriela spokesperson Joms Salvador said shortly after the plane carrying the team left. “We want Hazel to know that Filipinos will not tolerate the abuse of Filipinas by US soldiers notwithstanding the Philippine government's seeming connivance with the US military to write off this travesty,” she said.

This January, Padilla and her lawyers agreed to meet with her former employers to explore a possible case settlement. Ugnayan welcomes this development to resolve the case as this could lead to a greater unity in the Filipino community towards promoting the labor rights, respect and justice for all Filipino youth restaurant workers.
