PHILIPPINES: Human Rights Defender Threatened - ONLINE ACTION

Amnesty International, Autralia, July 3, 2019.

On 22 April, Cristina Palabay received a text message: she would be killed this year.
Hours earlier, someone had shot and killed her colleague Bernardino Patigas. She and Bernadino both worked with Philippines human rights collective, Karapatan.

We need to act now and stop the opponents of human rights from killing Cristina as well.

Call on the Philippine authorities to give Cristina and other human rights defenders police protection.
