Rally for Ramos - Support for the Bereaved Family of Atty. Ben Ramos

On November 6, 2018 at 10:30 p.m. in Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental, Philippines, human rights lawyer Benjamin Tarug Ramos was shot dead by two unknown gunmen on a motorcycle. He was taking a break after finishing a legal paper for one of his many pro bono clients. He sustained three gunshot wounds at the right back side and left upper chest of his body and was declared dead on arrival at the hospital.

About Ben Ramos:

Ben was 56 years old and was a founding member of the National Union of Peoples’ Lawyers. Despite limitations, he was the “go-to” pro-bono lawyer of peasants, environmentalists, activists, political prisoners and mass organizations in Negros Occidental.

Earlier this year, he was maliciously and irresponsibly tagged in a public poster by the Philippine police as among the so-called personalities of the underground armed movement.

Ben is the 34th lawyer killed under the 2-year administration of President Duterte. Excluding judges and prosecutors, he is the 24th member of the profession killed and the 8th in the Visayas region.

He was passionate, dedicated, articulate and yet also amiable and jolly. He remained fearless in the pursuit of justice, and brought that same determination and character into everything he did.  

We knew him as our uncle, our brother, our brother-in-law, our son-in-law, our friend.  

Who the Funds Are For:

All funds raised from this GoFundMe campaign will directly support the bereaved members of Ben Ramos’ immediate family: his widow and his three children.  

Any donation amount will help.
