The Philippines: Lawyers Unite against Violations of Rights

September 20, 2019

We see the same intolerance of dissent and violations of civil liberties that we witnessed 47 years ago during martial law. What is the role of the legal profession when civil liberties are under attack?

On the anniversary of the actual declaration of Martial Law, we invite you to hear libertarian lawyers from then and now at a forum: The Role of the Legal Profession in the Midst of Violations of Civil Liberties.

It will be held on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2019, 130-400 pm at the Justice JBL Reyes Hall, IBP Building, Ortigas.

The Concerned Lawyers for Civil Liberties or CLCL, a broad formation of lawyers and law students for the defense of civil liberties that was formed several years ago, will be revived and relaunched at the forum.

Convenors include
Prof. Pacifico Agabin of UP Law
VP Jejomar Binay of Mabini
Pres. Egon Cayosa of IBP
Atty. Neri Colmenares of NUPL
Dean Chel Diokno of FLAG
Dean Tony La Vina of Manlaban
Atty. Jojo Lacanilao
Atty. Marlon Manuel of Alternative Law Groups
Atty. Edre Olalia of NUPL
Sen. Rene Saguisag of Mabini
Atty. Arpee Santiago of Ateneo HR Center
Cong. Lorenzo Tanada of FLAG and many more.

Please invite as many lawyers, law students and civil libertarians to attend.

For inquiries: 09656047475 or

Media is requested to cover.
Non-lawyers are most welcome to join us in solidarity. Thank you.
