Digos Massacre Remembered (tags)
25 June 2009 It is quite common these days to read from the newspapers violence being perpetrated by the communist New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) that most Filipinos no longer care as long they are not the poor victims.

None would take the initiative to launch a crusade to seek justice. This is also what happened 20 years ago today.
