Militant groups led by the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) trooped to the Indonesian embassy in the Philippines and kept vigil to save the life of Mary Jane Veloso wrongly convicted and sentenced to death on drug charges. The execution was stayed at the last minute thanks to the support of migrant workers and peoples from at least 120 countries. Migrante International and the Philippines Chapter of the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS-Phils) were among those who initiated calls for the campaign.
