Surface Benjamen Villeno!

The continuing state-sponsored fascism under the Aquino regime is a clear manifestation of an undeclared martial law in the Philippines. Benjamen Villeno, trade union leader and organizer in the Southern Tagalog region, was abducted by suspected military forces due to his commitment in organizing unions and exposing the current administration's blatant violation of workers' rights, as well as involvement in the exposition and condemnation of systemic government corruption in the Philippines.

This new case of enforced disappearance sends a clear warning to all human rights activists and critics of the Philippine government regarding the state's endless efforts in suppressing any form of struggle for democracy in the country.

By signing this petition, you are taking part in urging the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Aquino administration to surface Benjamen Villeno and ultimately put an end to the systematic human rights violations in the country.

This petition was delivered to:
  • President of the Philippines
    Benigno Simeon Aquino III
