Please see here our urgent appeal on the incident of forcible closure of Lumad schools and filing of trumped-up charges in Talaingod, Davao del Norte under the martial law in Mindanao of the Duterte regime.
We hope that our networks, allies and friends can send out letter of concerns to key Government offices, and appeal to:
1.)Unconditionally release the Lumad children to their parents and guardians;
2.)Dismiss all trumped up charges filed against the NSM delegates;
3.)Pull out the 56th IB in the Lumad communities and disarm the paramilitary group Alamara;
4.)Reopen the forcibly closed Lumad community schools
5.)Stop military attacks and occupation of Lumad schools and communities
6.)No to martial law extension;
7.)The Philippine Government to observe the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and all major Human Rights instruments, wherein it is a signatory and a party to.
Thank you very much.
