There are more than 400 political prisoners in the Philippines today. For more information, please visit


Read this Yahoo! article on Ericson Acosta -- "My grandson Emmanuel watched a film on national hero 'Jose Rizal'. I knew there are some questions lurking in his mind: what was Rizal writing  and why was he in jail? Why was he shot and what was his crime?"
