Joen42016Arlington VA--PAALAM, Joe Navidad, 68 yrs old, Los Angeles CA, a native of Davao, A human rights activist, a genuine community leader!

It is with deep sadness to inform everyone of the demise of a dear friend , Joe Navidad of Los Angeles , CA.

In the early 90’s we organized PESANTE , a US support group for for Philippine farmers demanding for a comprehensive and genuine land reform in the Philippines.

As the lead counsel of the 1987 Mendiola Massacre civil case, Joe,myself and a group of human rights advocates saw the need to form a US solidarity group in support of our brothers and sisters demand for justice and for ownership of the farm lands .

Paalam mahal naming kaibigan! ”

Whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.” Romans 14:8–Atty.Arnedo Valera.
