While I was in the Philippines I had the honor of meeting political consultants from the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) on numerous occasions. As of now the NDFP is trying to restart peace negotiations with the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) but in order to do that the GRP must release all political prisoners of the NDFP in accordance with their agreement to implement and honor the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law in the Philippines (CARHRIHL) and the Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees (JASIG) which cover all members of the NDFP. As of now they GRP has only released five or so folks from prison with more than ten still awaiting release from prison despite the obvious violation of all agreements signed between the GRP and the NDFP.

Because of these recent developments I thought I would share a primer (in English and Tagalog, the English page starts on page 52) about the CARHRIHL by the NDFP.
