JUSTICE FOR GLORIA CAPITAN, STOP THE KILLING OF CLIMATE JUSTICE ACTIVISTS !

UntitledWe condemn the killing of Gloria Capitan, Filipino woman leader-activist of KILUSAN, a member organization of the Philippine Movement for Climate Justice. Ate Glo, as she is called by people close to her, was shot by motorcycle-riding gunmen last July 1. She was 57 years old, a mother and a grandmother.

Ate Glo was very active in the fight against coal and led in a series of mass actions and petitions calling for a permanent closure of a coal stockpile in their village.

If this is an attempt to silence other anti-coal activists like her, then they are mistaken. On the ground where Ate Glo’s body fell, where the blood from her body flowed, more anti-coal and climate justice activists will sprout.

We are activists and movements from all corners of the world. Ate Glo’s sacrifice only further strengthens our solidarity and our conviction that this evil menace which is coal must end. We will persevere in this fight and see to it that our children and the children of our children will be free from coal.

We join the clamor for the Philippine government to immediately launch a thorough investigation of her killing and bring the perpetrators to justice.
