Human rights advocacy in the Philippines

The report which follows was prepared in January 1986. Before it could be printed the events in Manila of February 1986 took place.

The report is therefore a record of the position that applied in the Philippines prior to the overthrow of the Marcos regime.

It is now published as such, and as a tribute to the courage of the lawyers in the Republic who opposed the regime while it was in power and to Mrs Corazon Aquino and all her supporters who set an example for the world which it is hoped will never be forgotten.
