Please join us, his friends, family, colleagues, fellow artists and supporters, as we wish Ericson freedom from unjust detention on his 40th birthday.

Artworks, books, and crafts by political prisoners and their supporters will also be sold and auctioned at the event.

This event coincides with the United Nations Human Rights Council Universal Periodic Review (UPR) in Geneva, where the Philippines is expected to be "grilled" for its human rights record. There are more than 350 political prisoners in the country today, most of them victims of arbitrary arrests, torture and trumped-up criminal charges. More than 90 of them, including Ericson Acosta, were arrested under President Aquino's watch.
