A LONG WAIT FOR JUSTICE. Mounds of melted candle wax spread below the chair where Gloria Capitan sat in her family’s karaoke bar on July 1, when two unidentified motorcycle-riding men shot her in the neck. No suspects have been caught up to this day.

GLORIA CAPITAN. Mother. Community leader. Anti-coal activist. Environmental and human rights defender. Fellow comrade.

Nang ang itim ay pinalitan ng pula

At nag-iwan nang ‘sang malalim na marka

Na siya namang nagsisilbing alaala

Para sa mga naiwan ni Ka Gloria
