    Message of Sympathy from VP Leni Robredo on the Passing of CHR Chair Jose Luis Martin "Chito" Gascon

     

    Message of Sympathy from VP Leni Robredo on the Passing of CHR Chair Jose Luis Martin "Chito" Gascon

    Ngayong umaga, sinalubong ako ng napakalungkot na balita. Pumanaw na si Commission on Human Rights Chair Chito Gascon.

    Nakikiramay ako sa kanyang asawa’t anak, sa buong staff ng CHR, at sa buong hanay ng mga nagtanggol sa karapatang pantao at patas at malayang lipunan.  Sa trabaho niya at aktibismo, Chito touched many lives. He was a student leader, advocate, and mentor that so many looked up to. Noong estudyante ako sa UP, sa mga martsa namin laban sa diktatura, si Chito ang nanguna bilang Chair ng UP student council. Binuksan niya ang pinto para makilahok nang mas malalim ang napakarami sa demokrasya natin.

    Ang dami niyang natulungan. Ang dami niyang na-inspire sa kanyang tapang at paninindigan. His was a constant light in these dark times. It is now up to all of us to tend to this light. May we all honor his legacy by following his example of compassion, courage, and integrity. 

    Rest in peace, Chito. Mananatili ka lagi sa puso naming lahat.
