A three-member delegation representing five U.S. medical and scientific associations visited the Philippines near the end of 1983 to observe health and human rights conditions in the country. Over their stay, after conferring with various political detainees, journalists, human rights activists, members of the clergy, and health workers, they published a report indicating that a continuing pattern of gross human rights violations was still in place despite the supposed lifting of Martial Law in 1981. Specific cases are also highlighted in their report, including the murders of Bobby de la Paz and Dr. Juan Escandor. A copy of this report was archived by the Medical Action Group, and later Digitized with the help of the Rizal Library.

Fact-Finding Mission Report to Cagayan Valley and Kalinga-Apayao, November 4-9 1985

Ecumenical Movement for Justice and Peace (EMJP)

Military Operations in the Mountainous Northern areas of Kalinga-Apayao and Cagayan intensified since 1982, with the Marag valley inhabited by the Isneg tribe declared a “No-man’s land” operation zone on March 1985. Several Human Rights Groups from Manila, Cagayan and Baguio would conduct a fact-finding mission to verify the aerial attacks and alleged military atrocities being reported by the Isneg People. Their report includes a situationer of the region and its people, a recording of bombing and strafing incidents across 8 months, and a list of “salvaging” incidents that took place over the same period. A copy of this report was archived by the Medical Action Group, and later Digitized with the help of the Rizal Library.
