AGHAM strongly condemns the assassination of fellow scientist and peace advocate Randy Malayao. He was shot at close range at 2:30 this morning while in a bus to Isabela.

Randy earned his Fisheries degree from the University of the Philippines –Visayas after which he used his science to serve the Filipino masses. He was also an active consultant to the peace talks between the Philippine government and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, playing a vital role in the drafting of the Comprehensive Agreement on Social and Economic Reforms (CASER) aimed at addressing the roots of armed conflict.

Today, the Philippines lost a nationalist scientist who exemplified what the practice of science and technology should be – for the benefit of people, especially the great masses! AGHAM mourns the loss of Randy and vows to continue his struggle: Science for the people, and towards a just and lasting peace.
