Union leader shot dead - demand justice and an end to impunity now
Antonio "Dodong" Petalcorin, the leader of a transport workers union in the Philippines, was shot dead on 2 July 2013 right in front of his home.
The gunman was caught on a CCTV camera calmly escaping in a motorcycle.
Dodong was the fifth transport workers union leader killed during the current presidency.
We are calling on the Philippines' president, Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III, to ensure that Dodong's killers are caught and brought to justice.
