NUJP-NAM marks the 13th anniversary of the Maguindanao massacre
NUJP-NAm will mark the 13th anniversary of the "deadliest attack against media workers" (Ampatuan massacre) online on November 26 at 5pm.

The North American chapter of the National Union of Journalists in the Philippines (NUJP-NAm) will observe the 13th anniversary of the “single deadliest attack against media workers,” also known as the Maguindanao massacre, with an online event on November 26 at 5 p.m.

Atty Nena Santos, who will provide an update on the current status of the Ampatuan case, as well as a family member of the murdered journalist, Maria Reynafe Momay-Castillo, have been invited to participate in the online discussion.

According to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), the massacre in Maguindanao was the single deadliest attack on journalists in the course of their profession. At least 32 media workers were among those who lost their lives in the massacre, according to the reports. Prior to the massacre that took place in Maguindanao, the Philippines was ranked as the second most dangerous country in the world for journalists by the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ).

Since the launch of the NUJP-NAm group in the beginning of this year, the online event is the first event that has been led by the group. NUJP-NAm is made up of journalists and media professionals from Canada and the United States.

The online event is open to the public, and everyone is welcome to participate via the zoom link at https://us06webzoom.us/j/86023694729.
