The Alternative Information and Development Centre (AIDC) condemns the murder of environmental lawyer Mia Manuelita Cumba Masacariñas-Green. The murdering of Mia has provoked outrage in a country where environmental activists are increasingly targeted.
Mia Manuelita Cumba Masacariñas-Green, Philippines, was shot dead – on Wednesday 15 February – after her car was ambushed by two men on motorbikes in the Filipino capital Bohol.
Masacariñas-Green, 49, was driving her three young children home when she was shot in the head and body. Her children, who witnessed the killing, were unhurt.
