[Special Post] Kilosbayan's Press Statement on the Maguindanao Massacre

Kilosbayan expresses its outrage against the premeditated massacre in Maguindanao of women, journalists and innocent parties that only happened to be at the scene of the bestial crime at the wrong place and at the wrong time.

Kilosbayan is appalled at the totalitarian and criminal state of governance in Maguindanao that mocks democratic processes, the rule of law and the sanctity of human life, a toxic condition that is also evident in other parts of the country; leading the world community to label the Philippines as most dangerous for journalists and one of the world's human rights hot spots.

Kilosbayan rises against the masterminds and the killers who carried out the mass murders; their accomplices and accessories to the crime; and, above all their coddlers and enablers, whose culture of impunity, entitlement and corruption make such notoriety possible and tears apart the nation's soul.

Kilosbayan calls on the entire government machinery to perform its sworn duties to apply swift, thorough and impartial justice to all those directly responsible for this unspeakable crime against humanity; and appeals to all decent Filipinos everywhere to make their voices heard and their presence felt in the epic struggle against man's inhumanity to man.
