The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) today
marks the 13th month after the Ampatuan Massacre with unwavering
resolve to struggle for justice for all the massacre victims and their

Even as we spend time with our families and loved ones during the
holidays, we remember the families the victims left behind, still
grieving for the gruesome murder of their kin.

This year, we have witnessed how the wheels of justice have been
bogged down by inherent weaknesses in our justice system. But we have
also witnessed how justice can be subverted through continued attacks,
threats and intimidation and bribery attempts on the victims’
families and witnesses.

But we have remained united and undaunted.

In the coming year, let us remain vigilant and never for a moment
lower our guard against any move to subvert justice. Let us welcome
the New Year with renewed hopes that justice will be realized.
