Dear friends,

We are sharing with you a call for urgent action to free trade unionist Maoj Maga. The Free Maoj Maga campaign is enjoining everyone to participate in a Global Day of Action on May 28, 2019, to call for the dismissal of the trumped-up charges against Maoj. Please circulate among your networks.

A Call for Urgent Action: FREE MAOJ Global Day of Action MAY 28

Filipino trade union activist Maoj Maga will face judgment for false charges of illegal possession of firearms on June 3, 2019. Police is saying that Maoj was carrying a gun while he was playing basketball in his own neighbourhood in February 22, 2018— one of those made up stories to justify the state’s illegal arrest and detention of activists in the Philippines. Maoj is being detained only because he is a trade union activist who was involved in organizing a transport strike movement in the Philippines.

What you can do:

Organize assemblies or rallies

Put up Free Maoj posters

Issue solidarity statements

Get support statements from institutions, legislators, other personalities

Tap the mainstream and social media to spread the message

Contribute to Maoj’s legal fund
