Quick facts: Ampatuan Massacre

Nakikiisa ang National Union of Student of the Philippines (NUSP),  ang pinakamalaki at pinakamalawak na alyansa ng mga konseho ng mga mag-aaral at pederasyon sa bansa, sa paghahanap ng hustisya para sa 58 biktima ng pamamaslang sa Maguindanao,  32 mula rito ay mga mamamahayag.
