Justice for Randy Felix Malayao

Last night under the biting chill and purple sky, we joined the condemnation of Randy’s extrajudicial killing at UP Baguio, part of the nationwide action in the different UP units.

He had been invited to return home several times by past administrations and President Rodrigo Duterte but CPP comrades had advised for him not to come due to strongly assumed danger to his life.
