Atty. Remigio Saladero Jr. handles more than 700 pro-bono cases, mostly of workers and other marginalized.
 
Last October 23, he was visited by military and police agents in his house carrying a warrant of arrest with a misspelled name and a wrong address of his. He was quickly brought to prison without any investigation, and was kept incommunicado for a time. The charges against Atty. Saladero: multiple murder, multiple frustrated murder, arson, and other grave criminal charges for allegedly participating in an NPA ambush of a globe cell site.
 
71 other activists also face the same charges. 6 of them are already in prison. And all of us can become targets, unless we resist.
