On the 40th Anniversary of Task Force Detainees of the Philippines

Greetings from Project Nameless.


We celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Task Force Detainees of the Philippines, along with many others who are witness to TFDP's incalculable contribution to the defense and advancement of human rights, justice, democracy, and freedom in the Philippines.


Project Nameless is a community of remembrance that honours the heroes and martyrs of the Filipino peoples's struggles for human rights, justice, democracy, and freedom. We do so mainly through gathering and publishing stories from friends, kin, and comrades -- on the Web and through social media -- of our heroes, and also stories of their, and our, times. We honour especially the nameless ones, the many who are not well-known and widely-recognised, who offered their lives in struggle and hope nonetheless.

Task Force Detainees of the Philippines has long championed the nameless and have made us remember them, and what they lived and died for over four decades. We join with Task Force Detainees in remembrance and in our continuing and shared journeys for human rights, justice, democracy, and freedom for the peoples of the Philippines.


Mabuhay ang TFDP!
