Calls for release of the abducted students continue

UP students held a protest run for the release of abducted classmates Karen and Sher yesterday.

Adarna, who knew the two personally, posts her thoughts on the abductions. What pissed her and Ellen Tordesillas the most, is Palparan's statement saying they were "confirmed rebels" and that "the people in the village were glad they were gone." Who, by the way, was the main feature in the Sunday Inquirer Magazine (no link, we don't want you to waste your time with 700 words worth of bullshit.)

Gerry reports that Sher Capadan was a former Philippine Soccer team member, and that Karen Empeno was the niece of a former Inquirer correspondent in Central Luzon.

Is UP under attack? Weeks before the news of the abductions, there came reports of UP campus militarization. Another report here. But there's no stopping the UP students' protests.

In other news: Armed men torch radio station in Cagayan apparently operated by Bayan Muna. `Tagaytay 5' tell tale of terror in police custody.

Gonzales scores Senator for talking peace with the NDF.

In Bantay Impeachment 2: Ka Teroy Llamas' widow, another priest to sign impeachment complaint, and students challenge CHEd to endorse impeach monitor information campaign as the gov't institution did with Cha-cha.

I've been worried about your situation. I've been telling people who agree with you on world outlook, to visit your site.

I believe you need an international defense committee, to make your story known.
