To the Association of Relatives of Political Prisoners, of Missing People and Victims of Genocide of Peru:
The Philippines Chapter of the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS) conveys its unity with the people of Peru in commemorating the June 19, 1986 mass murder of political prisoners in El Fronton, Lurigancho and Callao. This genocide of 30 years ago continues to beat in our hearts.
What happened in Peru also happened in the Philippines. It continues to this day.
We are one with the survivors and relatives of the victims of state repression in your country as you tell the world this June 10-19 of the heroism of your compatriots. The testimonies, artistic presentations and inauguration of a mausoleum are a fitting tribute to honor them.
Their memory lives on as we remain steadfast in the struggle for freedom and democracy. Only by the defeat of U.S. imperialism and local reaction can we give full justice to the victims and the exploited and oppressed masses.
Together, we shall fight. Together, we shall triumph.
Justice to the victims of state repression!
Down with US imperialism and reaction!
Long live the heroic struggle for freedom and democracy!
Long live international solidarity!
