Release of imprisoned Philippines student activists

Student Christian Movement of Canada

In response to appeals for assistance from SCM Philippines, the SCM of Canada has called upon the Philippine government to release imprisoned student activists and bring to justice those who cracked down on an August 19 demonstration.

The Student Christian Movement of Canada (SCM) stands in solidarity with members of the Student Christian Movement of the Philippines, the League of Filipino Students, and other activists who were treated violently and arrested during a peaceful protest against corrupt government spending on August 19, 2009.
