International Labor Solidarity Mission

Let us support the ILSM-Philippines. Visit their site and see if you can help.


Workers in the Philippines are under grave threat. At least 31 unionists, worker-organizers and union-supporters were killed in 2005 by death squads and suspected military agents including Diosdado "Ka Ding" Fortuna, Union President of Nestle Cabuyao who was shot dead last September 22, 2005 by masked motorcycle-riding men on his way home from the piketline.

In 2004, the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) reported that the Philippines was second only to Iraq in the number of journalists killed that year. The Philippines might as well be listed as the second most dangerous country in the world for trade unionists, next only to Colombia.

Amidst the rapidly worsening human rights situation in the country, we are calling on all workers, trade unionists, labor movement activists, civil libertarians, human rights defenders, concerned parliamentarians and everyone working for the defense and promotion of human rights to Join the International Labor Solidarity Mission to stop the killings of unionists, union-supporters and activists in the Philippines.
