NCCP Decries Harassment of staff, family


The National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP) condemns in the strongest terms the recent spate of harassments among unionists and activists perpetrated by elements believed to be agents of the state. There are now more than 20 such cases involving union officers and organizers of COURAGE (Confederation for Unity, Recognition and Advancement of Government Employees) and other progressive organizations since April 2015. They were all harassed by persons claiming to be members of the military and the police. COURAGE has been at the forefront of the struggle of government employees for decent wages and workers’ rights. In particular, they have been calling for a 16,000 pesos across the board salary increase. This campaign has been gaining ground in the last several months.
