Members of Anakbayan hurled pig’s blood at the official seal of the Armed Forces of the Philippines near Gate 2 of its General Head Quarters today. The protest was meant to dramatize the AFP’s continuing policy of assassinating and abducting legal activists. As of this article’s posting, 16 activists have already been murdered by the AFP, 2 less than the number of political killings done in the last six months of the Arroyo administration. President Noynoy Aquino has refused to scrap the AFP’s Oplan Bantay Laya, which is responsible for 1,200+ political killings under former president Gloria Arroyo.
