FREE THE MORONG 43 HEALTHWORKERS in Philippines

Brussels, Belgium

Op donderdag 15 april verzamelden een 70-tal mensen voor de Filippijnse ambassade om de vrijheid te eisen van de Morong 43. De 43 gezondheidswerkers die op 6 februari op illegale wijze in de Filippijnen werden gearresteerd zitten nog steeds vast. Het lijkt een zoveelste daad om de volksbeweging te intimideren... geen toeval in volle verkiezingsperiode. Wij organiseerden samen met het platform Stop the Killings een symbolische actie.

On Thursday 15th April intal and the Stop the Killings platform managed to gather 70 people in front of the Philippine embassy in Brussels to demand the immediate release of the Morong 43.

In the afternoon a delegation was received at the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In the evening we installed a prison and asked people to wear white.

While a delegation was received inside the Philippine embassy, we imprisoned 43 people in solidarity with the Morong 43. Medical Doctor Geert gave a testimony afterwards of his visit to the Philippines 2 weeks ago where he met with the staff of CHD. As a doctor he has been in many countries such as Iraq, and he was shocked by the case of the Morong 43.
