Maguindanao Massacre

This is a repost from another site. It’s sad that Philippines now beat Iraq, not on oil but being the worst country for journalists. It's atrocious, barbaric, gruesome, horrible, nightmarish, so evil to the highest degree; how could they do these to women, children, reporters and innocent civilians. There certainly is no law on the land to serve justice to these evil deeds, they should be stripped of their humanity!


Please display this black ribbon in your blogs, Tweeter account and Facebook accounts as we, in unison, mourn the victims of yet another atrocity in the hands of merciless politicians.

Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (who earlier declared a State of Emergency in Maguindanao), the media and press people, the religious and even the US government condemned the merciless killings.

As of press time, forty seven (57) cadavers have been recovered while 4 victims survived. The Maguindanao Massacre survivors are now in the custody of proper authorities and were reported to have been placed under the witness protection program by the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Meanwhile, the Kapisanan ng mga Broadkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP) strongly urged its members to wear a black ribbon or arm band to protest the Maguindanao Massacre and to show sympathy to the victims’ families.

JUSTICE is what we need now, so help us, dear God. May their souls rest in peace.
