    Red-Baiting Conference 2011 – State and Civil Society Perspectives as Audio Files!


    Since 2011 IPON emphasizes a crucial issue that deals with threats to the existence of civil society organizations and their members. Red-Baiting in the Philippines is the political strategy of members of state institutions such as the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police to accuse, denounce and persecute individuals and NGOs as members of communist organizations like the CPP-NDF-NPA in order to obstruct their work.


    In October 2011 IPON organized a Red Baiting conference in Manila in that offered state and civil society actors a platform to exchange ideas and perspectives and to find solutions for this dominant origin of human rights violations in the Philippines.


    The statements of the state actors, civil society representatives and experts can be heard as audio files here now!
