Cristina’s seen colleagues killed and she could be next.
Act now, demand she’s protected.

Defending human rights: Community sponsorship is the way forward

Hello Andrew,
On 22 April, Cristina Palabay received a text message: she would be killed this year.

Hours earlier, someone had shot and killed her colleague Bernardino Patigas. She and Bernadino both worked with Philippines human rights collective, Karapatan.

We need to act now and stop the opponents of human rights from killing Cristina as well.

Call on the Philippine authorities to give Cristina and other human rights defenders police protection.

DEMAND SAFETY FOR CRISTINA
Here’s what needs to happen now: the police can put protection measures in place to ensure Cristina and other human rights defenders don’t face the same fate as Bernardino.

But they won’t act without pressure. People like you need to demand the authorities protect Cristina and her colleagues.

It’s up to all of us to ensure human rights opponents don’t block people from demanding justice and a better world for all.

Act now: demand the Philippines protect Cristina so she can continue her vital work.

PS. The Philippines’ hit list of rights defenders isn’t an empty threat: Cristina’s colleague Bernadino was killed in April; lawyer Benjamin Ramos was killed in November. Act now – call for Cristina’s immediate protection.
