Philippines: Not an Iraq But Ever Dangerous to Journalists

Posted on: 09/26/2008

Manila, Philippines – Are journalists meant to be shut up and finally killed?

The past maybe the past, but they are bound to be repeated if they are ignored. It is time to look into journalist killings all over again, perchance there is any hope for change. That these things have set a pattern for others to follow indicates that the gangrene is there: the penchant to shut up somebody’s mouth from telling the truth.

many journalists and advocates of truth are becoming … “endangered species”

. . . then eventually what will be left in the ground are the fabricators of information, liars, and its relatives . . . unless authorities will provide enough protection for these advocates and adherents of truth, or at least open their 5 senses for them so they can finally see the condition, hear what they are saying, feel what they are going through, smell the reeks of those filthy allies of country’s administration, and provide them a taste of victory finally.

Nah! I’m such a dreamer. . . we already need divine intervention to remedy this deeply seated ‘tumor’ that the journalists and the privilege-deprived minorities are struggling against with.
