#PeaceTalksItuloy

From a post by Renato Reyes Jr.
St. Scholasrtica's Strattham Hall. March 16, 2018

Today is the 20th anniversary of the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law, a landmark pact in the GRP-NDFP peace talks.

We call for its full implementation, and that it won't go the way of the Philippines withdrawal from the ICC.

It remains in effect even when there are no peace talks taking place.

Filipinos can avail of the provisions of CARHRIHL, a binding agreement between the GRP and NDFP, when asserting their rights and calling out rights violations.

Upholding CARHRIHL and resuming peace talks are far more beneficial to the people than Duterte's all-out war and fake "terror" listing of individuals and groups.

Upholding CARHRIHL is a test of sincerity in achieving a #JustPeace for the people.

CARHRIHL recognizes the full range of human rights: civil, political, socio-economic, cultural.

It also recognized the need to indemnify victims of Marcos dictatorship as early as 1998. Peace and HR advocates seek its full implementation as well as the resumption of peace talks. #PeaceTalksItuloy
