A GROUP of religious women commemorated the 31st EDSA People Power Anniversary by urging Filipinos to uphold the “dignity and humanity of creation.”

Sister Regina Kuizon, head of the Association of Major Religious Superiors of Women in the Philippines, said the People Power Revolution became an inspiration to countries worldwide.

Kuizon also encouraged congregations to reach out to the families of the victims of extrajudicial killings.

“As we pray for transformation in our country, for our President, we also pray for each one of us that we may be transformed too, that we may not fear, that we may respect one another, that we may not destroy the dignity that God gave us,” Kuizon said in a statement.

Last Aug. 17, the association released a statement condemning the rampant extrajudicial killings in the country.

“The execution of suspects, without due process of law, is a violation of their right to life, the most basic of all human rights,“ Kuizon said.

Kuizon, from the Religious of the Good Shepherd order, is a UST alumna. She served as the Varsitarian’s Special Reports editor from 1982 to 1983 and assistant publications adviser from 1985 to 1990.
