Mervin Toquero visits Berlin

14. October 2014 | News

From October 8-10, the Aktionsbündnis accompanied Mervin Toquero, responsible for human rights at the National Council of Churches in the Philippines, on his visit to Berlin. During meetings with the German Foreign Office, protestant church leaders, and Parlamentarian Frank Heinrich, Mervin described the human rights situation in the Philippines.

He called on the German government to pay more attention to the conflict between the Philippine government and the NDFP. The military still denounces peaceful, political activists as communist rebels who then become victims of severe human rights violations.
