PAGTANGGOL ANG MGA KARAPATANG PANTAO

AJLPP-New York | Matinding kinokondena ng Alliance-Philippines (AJLPP) ang mabangis na todo-gyera ng rehimeng US-Arroyo laban sa mga mamayang Pilipino sa halos lahat ng dako ng Pilipinas. Ayon sa mga tala mula sa Pilipinas na sinusubaybayan ng AJLPP, lubos na nakababahala para sa alyansang ito na nakabase sa Estados Unidos at sa mga organisasyong pangkarapatang pantao, simbahan at iba pang grupong internasyunalista sa Amerika, ang lalo pang bumabangis na pagsalakay ng rehimeng US-Arroyo sa masang Pilipino sa pagpasok ng 2007. Muli, nanawagan ang AJLPP sa komunidad Pilipino Amerikano sa Estados Unidos at iba pang nasyunalidad na tumulong sa pakikibaka ng sambayanang Pilipino para sa kapayapaan at pambansang dignidad. Dapat nilang pagibayuhin ang pagkilos para sa kapayapaan at karapatang pantao. Makakaasang mananatiling kaisa ng mamamayang Pilipino ng AJLPP para sa pagkilos tungo sa kapayapaan, pambansang kalayaan at katubusang panlipunan.

Philippine Military Put Up P1-M bounty for MNLF Commander

AJLPP-New York | The Philippine military is offering a P1-million reward for the capture of National Liberation Front (MNLF) commander Ustadz Habier Malik who has been leading clashes against government troops in Sulu for a week now. Armed Forces chief Gen. Hermogenes Esperon said Malik, who has some 300 to 500 armed followers, has joined the Abu Sayyaf terrorists, the target of a separate massive military offensive. The government has brushed aside an appeal from the Organization of the Islamic Conference for a truce with Malik’s band, who last week fired mortar rounds on two Marine camps and houses on Jolo island.
The attack has provoked fierce clashes that have killed at least 21 people —three Marines, 17 rebels and a child —and displaced more than 50,000 people.

War in Mindanao :Palace, AFP reject OIC call for ceasefire in Sulu

AJLPP-New York | Malacañang is giving full support to the military offensive against renegade Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) forces in Sulu, which entered its fourth day of fierce fighting yesterday.

While the government acknowledges the appeal of the 47-nation Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) to disengage forces, Presidential Spokesman Ignacio Bunye said there must be an assurance against further attacks from the renegade forces. Nearly 8,500 families have fled the fighting and thousands crammed into schools and gymnasiums in downtown Jolo, relying on food rations from disaster agencies.
