Siyam na taon na paghihintay. Makatarungan ba para sa 58 na pinatay at para sa kanilang mga pamilya na hanggang ngayon ay naghihintay ng hustisya?

When time passes, the horror, outrage, and even the pain can become a fading memory. On the 9th year of the gruesome massacre of 58 Filipino journalists — the worst election-related killing in our history — we must never forget this blatant display of impunity.

The murder trial must be concluded as soon as possible. Bigyan natin ng katarungan ang mga Pilipino. Pag may sala, may parusa, mayaman man o mahirap.
