Dear Friends:

PAHRA'S International Human Rights Awards ceremony was held tonight.

It was a good occasion to give that much overdue recognition to all of you, our dear friends from the international solidarity movement, who have stood by us and with us, through all these years.

Ten groups and individuals were given plaques this evening. It does not mean, however, that the others who were not called tonight contributed less to the cause of human rights. In fact, all the nominees will be given human rights certificates as a gesture of our deep appreciation for your unwavering commitment to the cause of human rights in the Philippines. This is the least we could do.

Tonight’s ten awardees were:

To all of you, we say thank you.

Mabuhay tayong lahat!

Ellene Sana, Kakammpi.
