Julie was shot dead after being threatened by members of the military for her human rights activism.

Earlier, residents reported that several men who identified themselves as members of the CIDG (Criminal Investigation and Detection Group) were looking for Catamin and later went to their house.

Prior to the incident, on February 25, Catamin said that they were called by a certain Lt. Estrada to the military detachment in Haycon, Calinog and told Catamin that they know that Catamin’s constituents were asking for the help of Bayan Muna lawyers and from the church which is used by the New People's Army.

The military personnel warned Catamin that hers constituents should stop this or the same thing that happened last December 30 will happen to them. Catamin was among the first to expose that the four arrested from their village last December 30 were innocent and that the weapons and ammunitions found in the villagers’ houses were planted by the CIDG.

Today, Feb 28, barangay leader Julie Catamin was shot dead in Iloilo!

Julie exposed the lies propagated by AFP, PNP and NTF-ELCAC to cover up the Dec 30 Tumandok Massacre.

Stop the attacks!
