Pangasinan Journalists Lead Prayer Rally for Slain Journalists

The Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP) - Pangasinan Chapter, Pangasinan Press Club and Pangasinan Tri-Media Association (PATRIMA) led a prayer rally in front of the Dagupan City Museum at around 5 p.m. for the slain journalists in Maguindanao.  There was a short program which featured the fiery and forceful words of notable Pangasinan journalists who condemned the atrocious act. This was followed by the solemn candle-lighting ceremony and singing of songs.

The shout for justice and the concerted effort to decry the murder of the 30 slain media practitioners was done as part of the Global Day of Solidarity spearheaded by the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ).  

Earlier, at 7 a.m., KBP member-stations in Pangasinan went off the air for a minute to protest the massacre and press for swift government action to give justice to the victims’ families.
