Davao gov't agencies mark human rights consciousness week

By Carina L. Cayon

Davao City (4 December) -- As the world observes the International Human Rights Week, government agencies and offices in the region also mark the National Human Rights Consciousness Week starting today (December 4) and to culminate on December 10.

The Commission on Human Rights, as the lead agency for the celebration, urged all government agencies and institutions to put in more meaning to this year's commemoration pursuant to Republic Act 9201 of 2002.

CHR Regional Director Atty. Alberto B. Sipaco, Jr. cited a provision of RA 9201 enjoining all state offices to celebrate the week "through simple and appropriate ceremonies and activities to make the people aware of their basic human rights in relation to the functions and services offered by these government instrumentalities."

Sipaco added that RA 9201 or the National Human Rights Consciousness Week Act also directed all levels of private and public education/learning institutions to "propagate, particularly among the students, a human rights culture that aims at sustainable development in the country."

He further urged for the hanging of streamers, bearing the theme "Karapatang Pantao: Kilalanin, Tuparin, Pagyamanin," in offices and public places.

State employees are also expected to recite the "Panata sa Karapatang Pantao" during the flag raising ceremony at their respective offices.

Sipaco calls for government agencies' "continued support to our common concern on respecting, protecting and fulfilling the human rights of every Filipino." (PIA-XI) [top]
