ALERT: Two Youth Environmental Activists Abducted in Central Luzon

Sep 4, 2023 0 comments



On the night of September 3, 2023, two dedicated youth organizers were abducted by four armed men in Barangay Lati, Orion, Bataan, as reported by Panday Sining and AKAP KA Manila Bay. Both Jonila Castro and Jhed Tamano had been selflessly serving their community as youth volunteers for AKAP KA Manila Bay. 


According to the report, even before the abduction took place, Castro and Tamano were subjected to ongoing intimidation and harassment, presumably as a result of their dedication to community service and advocacy.


“Castro and Tamano continue to fight against the destructive projects looming on Manila Bay due to their impact on the environment and livelihood. Instead of support, they only reap fear and violence,” said AKAP Ka Manila Bay.



Both Castro and Tamano were former members of STAND (Student Alliance for the Advancement of Democratic Rights) at Bulacan State University. Tamano graduated with a degree in Business Administration, majoring in Business Economics, while Castro was an undergraduate studying Psychology. During their time at Bulacan State University, they actively advocated for students' rights and welfare within the university.
