Let justice be our gift to Jennifer

True Colors Coalition’s statement on the observance of the 27th birthday of slain transwoman Jennifer Laude. “Our sister’s death means continuing our community’s struggle. We will not stop until the day justice is served. The LGBT community is united in demanding for justice for Jennifer and the Filipino people,” TCC states.

Today, as we observe Jennifer Laude’s 27th birthday, True Colors Coalition (TCC) is one with the family in continuously demanding for justice for Jennifer. We are just more than a month away from the promulgation and we want the court and the Philippine government to know that we are expecting for Joseph Pemberton’s conviction – Let justice be our gift to Jennifer Laude!

The deportation decision is only a proof that Pemberton has done terrible things in the country but we must continue to be vigilant until decision is released come December, justice is served and Pemberton pays for the life he had stolen.

Also, we do not forget that Jennifer’s murder is a result of the continuous military presence in our country. The unrelenting presence of the US military forces in the country continues to put women, LGBTs, and children at risk and vulnerable to physical and sexual violence.

We do not want more victims.

Thus, with our clamor for justice, TCC is also calling for the abolition of the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) and rejection of the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA).

Our sister’s death means continuing our community’s struggle. We will not stop until the day justice is served. The LGBT community is united in demanding for justice for Jennifer and the Filipino people.
