Forum on Legal Offensives

As part of our first anniversary celebration in August 2009, Women Wise3 held a forum On Legal Offensives— a discussion on the heightened attack on workers and trade union rights defenders by criminalization or filing trumped-up charges against workers and trade unionists. Held at the Episcopal Church of the Philippines, speakers Anakpawis Representative Joel Maglunsod, Atty. Remigio Saladero of Pro-Labor Legal Assistance Center (PLACE) and Prof. Max Quijano of St. Benilde College, talked of the many facets of legal offensives as part of the governments crackdown on the left and how it malignly targets legal organizations and violates basic human rights. The audience was comprised of workers from different unions and workplaces and labor advocates from various sectors.
