Black Friday

Thursday, November 26, 2009 ·


I'm wearing black today, same as many of the people who are joining the cause of seeking justice against the brutal murder of at least 57 people in Maguindanao on November 30, 2009.

Inquirer.net has this report:

The fatalities, many of them women, were on their way to Sharif Aguak to accompany the Mangudadatus to the Comelec office to file the certificate of candidacy for governor of Vice Mayor Dong Mangudadatu, apparently in defiance of the strong hold of the Ampatuan family over the entire province. The Ampatuans were, until recently, allies of the Mangudadatu. This incident only reinforces the pessimism of those who say that peace will always be an illusion in Mindanao.

If reports were correct, it is said that the Ampatuans were the ones behind the killing. Yesterday, Mayor Andal Ampatuan, Jr. was captured and brought in the custody of the National Bureau of Investigation for questioning.


Forgive the following accounts, but I deem it is necessary to reprint this to prove the brutality of the crime:

Department of Justice Secretary Agnes Devanadera said over GMA News that, "Even the private parts of the women were shot at. It was horrible. It was not done to just one. It was done practically to all the women.

The zippers of their pants were all undone. We have yet to determine whether they were raped. But it is certain that something bad was done to them."


Additionally, 27 among those 57 bodies found dead are journalists who were there to cover the filing of the COCs of the Mangudadatus.

It is just so horrible and illogical why these innocent journalists and women were killed just like that.

The nation mourns for justice.

Hindi ko maimagine ang sarili ko sa mga paa ng mga hayup na gumawa nun! Sobra sila! Mas grabe pa ang naranasan ng mga kababayan natin kumpara sa mga kinatay na baboy! Mga hayup sila!

nasa opis ako kaya hindi aki nag-itim pero nakikidalamhati ako sa sinapit ng mga kababayan natin. at isa pa, ang bunso kong kapatid ay istudyante ng journalism kaya nangingilabot ako sa sinapit ng mga mamamahayag dito. sana ay lumabas ang katotohanan at maparusahan ang mga maysala!
