TWO–DAY FASTING FOR MORONG 43 HEALTH WORKERS STARTS TODAY

On this 100th day of the P-Noy Presidency, we political prisoners in Cebu and Bohol demand that the government finally release the Morong 43 health workers immediately and unconditionally.

We are aware that the more fascist sections of his official family – most particularly the Defense Department which implemented the illegal arrest and torture of the Morong 43 in line with the Arroyo regime's Oplan Bantay Laya campaign – oppose any and all moves to free the 43 health workers. Just the same, we strongly urge president NoyNoy Aquino to walk his “daang matuwid” talk and make right this grave injustice upon our fellow political prisoners.

Through this two- day fasting (October 8 – 9, 2010) - our fifth since P-Noy came to power – we also demand that the Aquino administration finally begin the process of releasing political prisoners based on humanitarian considerations and as a matter of obligation consequent to its agreements in 2001, 2004 and 2009 with National Democratic Front (NDF).

Beyond its first 100 days, we also call on the Aquino administration to abandon the Arroyo Regime's Oplan Bantay Laya counter-revolutionary program, resume in earnest its formal peace negotiations with the NDF, and put a decisive stop to the extra-judicial killings, involuntary disappearances and other human rights violations against journalists, social activists and its other perceived political enemies.
