Justice for Victor Olayvar

These are Victor Olayvar's oldest (Phillip Ivan) and youngest (Giovanni Faith) kids. I took this photo a year ago, during the 40th day of his death.

Victor Olayvar was the chairperson of Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (BAYAN-Bohol) and was one of the pioneering members of the farmers' group Hugpong sa mag-uumang Bol-anon (HUMABOL).

He was one of the happiest soul i ever met in this island, amid all the fights he led and his own struggles withing his family, particularly raising seven kids with meager allowance for committing his life full-time to the people's struggle in Bohol since the 8Os.

Up to this year, justice hasn't been served. The military agents who killed him last September 7, 2006 in Danao, Bohol are still running around freely. Well, as in every other military agent who killed political activists.

One thing is clear though, all the killings did not stop the people from fighting. And the people will continue to fight for what is right. The fight against imperialism, feudalism and beaurocrat capitalism continues.

Justice for Victor Olayvar! Justice for the Filipino People!
