Editor’s note: This month marks the 13th anniversary of the Maguindanao Massacre (also known as The Ampatuan Massacre ) on November 23, 2009 when 58 people (32 of whom were journalists) were massacred in an open field ambush. The killing of the 32 journalists is said to be the largest number of journalists killed in the world. Today, justice has not been done to the victims, so we want to reprint this post from the Center for Art, New Ventures & Sustainable Development (CANVAS).
Four years and counting. Truly. Justice delayed and justice denied. Here’s what we wrote about it back then: http://lookingforjuan.blogspot.com/…/hope-in-hopeless… Wala pa din.
