URGENT APPEAL: Pls. Sign the Online Petition to Stop Extrajudicial Killings in the Philippines

Dear friends,

The Asian Human Rights Commission has recently uploaded an online petition about extrajudicial killings in the Philippines that is primarily directed to the Philippine Department of Justice.

From the part of the Asian Students Association, we will be supporting this online petition and hope that you would add your names to it as well.

Please note that e-mails with slightly different letters will also be sent to the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, the U.N. rapporteur for extrajudicial killings, the National Human Rights Commission and Pope Benedict. These letters can be viewed by clicking on their name on the web site. The online petition is available at
If you can also help in circulating this to your friends and networks, we would appreciate it as well.

Your support is a significant figure in this international campaign to protect human rights and stop the killings in the Philippines.

Thank you very much!

In solidarity,

Rey Asis, Bhakta Gurung and Lee Khai Loon
