News in Pictures: An Explosion of Outrage

Human-rights group Hustisya on Tuesday opened the 10-day long commemoration of the International Human Rights Day with an explosion of outrage, symbolized by red paint thrown at a target board with President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s face surrounded by other notorious human rights violators including Datu Unsay Mayor Andal Ampatuan Jr.

In this photo, Elizabeth Calubad, wife of Rogelio Calubad and mother of Gabriel Calubad, both victims of enforced disappearance threw paint bombs at the “rouge gallery” in Mendiola Bridge, Manila.

Hustisya is composed of relatives and other loved ones of victims of extrajudicial killings, enforced disappearances and other human-rights violations committed under the Arroyo regime. (Photo courtesy of Selda Pilipinas)
