Justice for Noli Capulong and all victims of state terrorism!
"Noli was Chairman of the Christian Witness and Service Committee of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines in Calamba City (UCCP-Calamba), Spokesperson of the Southern Tagalog Environmental Action Movement (STEAM) and Deputy Secretary General of Bayan Muna in Southern Tagalog.
"A former staff of the NCCP, Noli was an untiring worker of the International Affairs Desk and later on as Coordinator of the Ecology and Environmental Protection Program for Southern Luzon. He served as President of the United Church Men in his church and chaired the Christian Witness and Service Committee for the UCCP North East Southern Tagalog Conference at one time. He was instrumental in promoting ecumenical work and played a key role in the formation of the Southern Tagalog Regional Ecumenical Council. He was a member of the Kapatirang Simbahan para sa Bayan (KASIMBAYAN) and convenor of the Christian Movement for Good Government.
"Noli epitomized what it meant to serve God by serving the people. As a passionate speaker, he used this God-given eloquence to expose and denounce consistently projects in Southern Tagalog that were detrimental to the people and destructive to the environment; if not symbols of mammon."
