Document A Death
One documented killing
When powerful people in Asia have had enough of someone, they often kill them. They might hire someone, or send their own people. The person might be shot on the street, stabbed in their home or taken away and killed. The body may be found, or it may not. The Philippines has very high numbers of these killings. Most of the victims are people trying to work peacefully for a better society.
You can pay for the cost of documenting one of these killings. Once documented, the case will be raised through all sorts of national, regional and international advocacy. This is not a happy gift, but it is a necessary one: without it, there can be no possibility of justice, no prospect of ending the bloodshed. These stories must be recorded and told. This is being done, with effect. Cases are being investigated where none were before. Newspapers are reporting where none did earlier. Demands for change are growing, but still they are not enough. Hopefully your gift won't be needed for long, but it is now. Please do give it. Your gift to document an extrajudicial killing in the Philippines will be provided through the Asian Human Rights Commission.
