"'Let the Stones Cry Out' is the title of an ecumenical report on human rights in the Philippines. It is also a call to action. Drawn up by the churches in the Philippines and supported by churches in Canada, it details the campaign to stop the 'extra-judicial killings' or assassinations that have claimed the lives of more than 1,000 ordinary citizens, including one Anglican bishop. Since January 2001, the Philippines has been in the midst of an unprecedented civil rights crisis. 'Dead bodies have been found sprawled on highways and buses', says Father Rex Reyes, an Igorot priest and general secretary of the National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP). Father Rex (as he likes to be called), is a PWRDF partner who recently visited Toronto following meetings in New York with the United Nations Human Rights Council". Father Rex "is also rector of Fairview Episcopal Resurrection Church and the first Indigenous person to take the helm of leadership of the NCCP". "Since 2006, the country has been living in a state of national emergency. Those who dare speak out risk illegal detention, torture and death. Filipinos have no recourse but to resist, points out Father Rex. 'We must tell the truth and uphold the truth. No single church can do it alone. The struggle for truth and social justice must be an ecumenical action'. On his recent visit to Toronto, Father Rex brought greetings from the Philippines. 'I want to thank our sisters and brothers in Canada for their prayers and solidarity', he said".
