Church groups condemn arrest of young advocates for the poor

COTABATO (UCAN): The Rural Missionaries of the Philippines condemned the arrest on March 2 of 21-year-old Myles Albasin, 21, accused of being a communist rebel fighter with the New People’s Army by the military.
“We are aggrieved that the response of the state, and the people quick to judge her actions, had been to accuse her of being a terrorist,” said Ailene Villarosa, coordinator of the Rural Missionaries.
