Arrest of Prof. Sison draws worldwide protests


Like wildfire, protest actions spread swiftly and widely following the arrest of Professor Jose Maria Sison last 28 August in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The protests in different parts of the world continued until Prof. Sison's release from detention on 13 September.

Less than 48 hours after the arrest, Filipino and solidarity activists around the world mounted rallies and pickets in front of embassies and consulates of The Netherlands, the Philippines and the United States of America. Angry petition letters and statements demanding Prof. Sison's immediate release flooded the communication trunklines of the three countries' foreign offices.
