AMP-Statement: Anniversary of the murder of Zara Alvarez 2021

The Philippine human rights defender, teacher, and single mother, Zara Alvarez, was killed by unidentified perpetrators near her apartment in Bacolod City, Negros Island (Philippines) one year ago, on August 17, 2020.

When we, the members of the Aktionsbündnis Menschenrechte Philippinen (AMP) received the information, we were shocked and in deep grief. Today, our thoughts remain with Zaras family, friends, and colleagues. Yet, no perpetrators have been identified, nobody has been held accountable.
