People's Movement for Justice to be launched today

Today, January 7, various groups led by former Vice President Teofisto Guingona Jr. will have a press conference at The Orange Place Hotel, Kamias Road, Quezon City. 

Topic---the unification of groups all seeking for justice in the Vizconde massacre case and other unsolved criminal cases. 

The group which was called People's Movement for Justice (PMJ) is the biggest civil society grouping since the assumption of the new administration. 

Collectively, the group commands the biggest aggrupation--estimated at about 5 million members nationwide. 

Dante Jimenez, formerly the chair of the VACC, is one of the lead convenors, together with Vice President Tito Guingona. 

PMJ is composed of all sectors in the Philippine Civil Society Movement. Those who already gave their solidarity for the group are the following:

Rep. Lisa Masa of the group Gabriela
Satur Ocampo of Bayan
Rasti Delizo of Sanlakas
Leody de Guzman of Partido Lakas ng Masa
Theody of Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino
Father Robert Reyes
Ret. General Raymundo Jarque
Mary "Rosebud" Ong for Whistleblowers
Lauro Vizconde
Atty. Mike Topacio
Sister Mary Jane Mananzan
Ecumenical Movement in the Philippines
Para sa Bayan (PSB)
YOU (Young Organizers' Union)

This is somewhat a rainbow coalition of groups now resolved to fight the scourge of injustice in the country. Injustice assumes many forms, not just the injustice in resolving criminal cases.

The fight is on! Onward revolutionary forces towards true JUstice and Freedom!
