ICHRP-US congratulates Cristina “Tinay” Palabay, Secretary General of Karapatan Human Rights Alliance, for winning the Franco-German Prize for Human Rights and Rule of Law Award. The award signifies international recognition of the justness of Palabay’s work despite many attempts of the Duterte regime to attack her, Karapatan, and human rights defenders across the Philippines. 

“I, we, stand with all of you today — unburied by those who wanted to take life and our rights away from all of us. This recognition, the Franco-German Human Rights Prize and the Rule of Law Award, is not only for me: it is for each and every person who believes in defending and advancing people’s rights,” Palabay said.

Tinay Palabay is our friend and we are a proud partner of Karapatan Human Rights Alliance. We have been privileged to host Tinay on speaking tours in the United States in 2017 and 2019. We are committed to genuine solidarity with the struggle of the Filipino people and will continue to support Karapatan’s work in the face of increasing attacks and human rights violations.
