Dan San Andres


Dan San Andres is a pastor at the United Church of Christ in the Philippines and a spokesperson for the Karapatan alliance in the Bicol region. The alliance is comprised of individuals, groups and organisations that work to promote and protect human rights in the Philippines.

The climate of impunity that prevails in the Philippines, combined with the administration’s encouragement of extra-judicial killings of alleged drug users as well as the increasingly hard line taken by the army towards the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, has resulted in the serious deterioration in the situation for human rights defenders in the country.
