News at Eleven: Our campaign for human rights has

for the past years attained worldwide reach. We are in a better  position to push for the release of all political prisoners. Reflecting on my own experience, a crucial component of this campaign is our call to end the criminalization of political dissent, illegal arrest and torture.  Only then can we ensure that people like Maricon Montajes, Charity Dino, Alan Jazmines, Bart Alcantara, Eduardo Sarmiento, Randy Vegas, Raul Camposano, who have chosen to serve the people will not suffer further injustice.
