The international campaign to STOP THE KILLINGS IN THE PHILIPPINES has had an impact. The 2007 Canadian Tour of human rights advocates and victims from the Philippines was followed by a historic special session of the Permanent People’s Tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands where Dr. Constancio Chandu Claver was witness. After hearing three days of testimony by victims and witnesses, the Tribunal rendered a strong verdict, accusing the Philippine government and its backers in the White House of “crimes again humanity”.
