Aquino must end Oplan Bayanihan

With the capture of retired military official Jovito Palparan, we remember the more than 1,000 students, youth leaders, peasant- and worker-leaders, journalists and activists who were killed, tortured and abducted during the Arroyo presidency and under Palparan’s Oplan Bantay Laya 1 and 2—among them, youth activists Karen Empeño, Sherlyn Cadapan, Cris Hugo, Ambo Guran and Farley Alcantara.
