Quezon City, Philippines, Nov 5, 2017 / 06:01 am
Victims of the deadly Philippines drug war deserve to be remembered, said Catholic seminarians as they reaffirmed the need for true peace and unity.
"We, seminarians of San José Seminary, will not forget the merciless and senseless deaths brought about by this drug campaign," said the students from the Quezon City-based seminary.
"We will not forget the blatant disregard for the dignity of life, and the violation of human rights. We will not forget the violence and the lack of due process. We will not forget the evil that has come upon us," continued their message, released Nov. 2 for All Souls' Day.
"On this day of remembering our beloved departed, we will remember the victims of this massacre. We will remember their families, and those who have been affected by this war, especially the poor," the seminarians said.
