Human Rights Doctors Lambast Human Security Act: Martial Law Comeback Condemned

MANILA (13 July 2007) - Together with hundreds of freedom fighters who braved the rains in Manila today, doctors from the Health Action for Human Rights (HAHR) called on the people to rally against the Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's Human Security Act of 2007. “We condemn the impending implementation of the Human Security Act and call on the Filipino people to rise and oppose this barbaric law. We call on Supreme Court to intervene and declare this law unconstitutional before it causes irreparable damage to established norms of legal processes in our society,” said Drs. Reginaldo Pamugas and Darby Santiago of HAHR, a Quezon City-based non-government organization composed of doctors and health professionals. “This law just brings us back to the dark ages of Martial Law when political repression and rampant human rights violations by state forces (the AFP, PC, and Metrocom) were ordinary everyday events.” Dr. Pamugas adds.
