"It is really a challenge for the youth who are living today to be part of the ranks of defenders of human rights. We cannot allow that basic social services are deprived from the people, that the human rights violations and rampant killings will go on because that is the kind of society that we will pass on to the future generations."

Protesters took to the streets of the Philippines capital of Manila to mark international Human Rights Day on Tuesday.
Some protesters burned an an effigy of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, angered over his campaign against illegal drugs that has claimed the lives of thousands of Filipinos.
The unprecedentedly massive crackdown Duterte launched after he took office in mid-2016 has seen more than 6,300 mostly petty drug suspects killed after allegedly resisting arrests.
Human rights groups have cited a higher death toll and accused some policemen of killing unarmed suspects based on flimsy evidence and altering crime scenes to make it look like the suspects violently fought back.
Protester Raoul Manuel, the President of the National Union of Students of the Philippines said they could not allow "the human rights violations and rampant killings" to go on "because that is the kind of society that we will pass on to the future generations."
Meanwhile, Duterte on Tuesday decided to end more than two years of martial law in southern Philippines.
His spokesperson said that government forces had weakened Islamic militant groups there with the capture and killing of their leaders.
Opposition politicians argued Duterte’s martial law was unconstitutional because it is an "extreme measure" that can only be imposed when an actual rebellion against the government exists.
They also feared the move could be a prelude to Duterte declaring martial law throughout the Philippines.
