Ex-martial law detainees and former political prisoners gather in SELDA anniversary

The Samahan ng mga Ex-Detainees Laban sa Detensyon at Aresto (SELDA) recently held a gathering in celebration of their 28th year at the UP Diliman library’s Filipiniana section. Coming together were activists detained not only during Martial Law but also by regimes succeeding Ferdinand Marcos’ administration.

Founded by ex-martial law detainees in 1984, SELDA has been so far the largest organization of former political prisoners in the country. They have been most consistent in campaigning for the unconditional release of all political prisoners in the country.

Ka Satur Ocampo has consistently done good to the nation

“…shading #37 is a vote for real concrete change. It is a vote for a nation that isn’t afraid to fight for its freedoms. It is a vote for a nation that deserves to have Satur as Senator now. Voting for Satur is voting for a future that will infinitely better, because we aren’t afraid anymore. It is one that we, the masses, the greater majority deserve.”

(Re-posted from Katrina Stuart Santiago’s blog) Satur Ocampo is the one senatoriable who has gotten flack for being guest candidate of NP, which is surprising given how this refuses to believe the truth that he and Liza Maza are running with the party, and not within it.
