November 4 ~ The Reverend Larry S. Emery, Pastor of the Community Presbyterian Church, Walnut Grove, will speak on human rights atrocities in the Philippines as part of the Sierra Arden United Church of Christ Peace and Justice Forum at 1 p.m.

Rev. Emery served as an observer at the Philippines General election earlier this year and represented the Presbyterian Church USA at last year’s Ecumenical Human Rights Summit in Manila.

A recent United Nations report to the General Assembly pointed to the systematic and arbitrary execution of hundreds of activists who are hunted, tortured and killed. The report notes a “death squad” operates in Davao City in which children and others are killed in broad daylight.

Rev. Emery’s talk will be preceded by a church service at 10 a.m. and an 11:30 luncheon (donations gratefully accepted) at the Sierra Arden United Church of Christ, 890 Morse Avenue.
