The Armed Forces of the Philippines joins every Filipino worldwide in observing the Human Rights Day.

We stand up for human rights and continue to stand by its principles, even in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, in our performance of our mandate as protector of the people and the state.

The adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in 1948 will continue to hold us accountable to our commitment to protect human rights, especially in conflict.

To this, we urge everyone to join us in resisting radicalization and seeking a just end to all violence.

Security is a shared responsibility. With every Filipino's cooperation, we can all be human rights advocates and peacebuilders. Let us all ensure that the tenets of UDHR are upheld and respected!
