HAPI Statement on EDSA30

HAPI Statement on #EDSA 30
 
On February 25, 1986, the dictatorial regime of President Ferdinand E. Marcos was overthrown by a peaceful social revolution. The Philippine humanist community joins its voice in the commemoration of this event. 

What happened to the nation after People Power may not be celebratory, but ending a regime in which 3,500+ people were randomly killed without due process of law is, without doubt, something to celebrate. 

HAPI condemns any and all forms of dictatorship, then and now. To be a HUMANIST means to genuinely care for each other and humanity, a key tenet of which is to hold that democracy and human development are matters of right.

We, in HAPI,  stand united to never allow our people to forget the horrors of the Martial Law years, and to never allow such things to happen again, by guarding our liberty and freedom to express, pushing for civic equality and human rights, and fighting against discrimination in all its forms. 

#NEVERAGAIN.
