It’s already October, and we’re nearing the first anniversary of the most heinous journalist-related killing in the Philippines – the infamous Maguindanao Massacre. The trial is still ongoing, and at this point we can only hope that justice may be served.
It’s been a long time since the incident, however, and it can’t be helped that the memory may have slipped from the consciousness of Philippine society. The victims of the massacre should not be forgotten, and the battle against impunity must continue to be fought.
This is why the Freedom Fund for Filipino Journalists (FFFJ), through the Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility (CMFR) and along with the University of the Philippines Diliman College of Mass Communication (UP-CMC) is holding a multimedia contest entitled “FIGHTING IMPUNITY: The 2010 multimedia competition to mark the first year of Ampatuan Massacre.” The contest was officially launched in a function held at the CMC Auditorium last Sep. 29.
