Dear Madame President Arroyo:
 
We are gathered in Seoul, Korea as participants in the Second Inter-Religious Conference on Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution The Conference is part of the continuing concern and response by the people of Japan and the rest of the world to uphold and honor the Article 9 provision in the Japanese Constitution, which deters the Japanese people’s participation in wars and any military activity.
 
It is with sadness and great concern that we received the shocking news of the recent massacre in Maguindanao Province, Southern Philippines. From reliable sources we were informed that more than 57 civilians were brutally murdered at the behest of a known political warlord. The massacre victims include thirty journalists and two human rights lawyers.
 
We are outraged by this case of extrajudicial killings committed with impunity and demand that the perpetrators of this violence are brought to justice. We offer our prayers of sympathy and support for the grieving families of the victims. We offer as well our commiseration and sympathy to our brothers and sisters, especially those who continue to bear the brunt of the continuing violence in the Philippines. We join the Filipino people in their demand to stop the spiral of violence, to disarm the warlords, and to rescind the Executive Order 546 which allows politicians to fund private armies and their violent activities.
 
Every human life given by God is sacred and is supposed to be protected by the laws of the Government of the day. There is no other way to pursue peace but by the way of peace itself.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
The faith leaders, participants in the Second Article 9 Conference
