The Chicago Committee for Human Rights in the Philippines (CCHRP) condemn in the strongest possible terms, the killing of Jamie Delos Santos, the 62 year old chairperson of Pamalakaya, the National Federation of Small Fisherfolk Organization in Guihulngan City, Negros Oriental.
Since Rodrigo Duterte came to power in the Philippines, Guihulngan, a municipality of less than 100,00 has seen 11 extrajudicial killings of activists, including 3 fisherfolk organizers. We extend our deepest sympathy to the Delos Santos friends and family, and support the demand of Karapatan Negros for an immediate investigation and end to the killings.
