Grant permanent residence!
Let him have basic human rights!
Grant permanent residence to Prof. Jose Maria Sison!
Joma Sison is a recognized political refugee under the Geneva Refugee Convention,
specifically under its Article 1A.
He has lawfully and peacefully lived in The Netherlands for more than 23 years.
He has never committed any criminal act against the public order and national security of
the Dutch state or any other European state. The European Court of Justice has ruled that
he is not a terrorist and has removed him from the blacklist of the European Union.
Because of his staunch opposition to the Philippine government, his passport was
cancelled while visiting the Netherlands in 1988. Since then, he has been requesting the
Netherlands to grant him asylum and a residence permit.
Just like other long-time residents of the Netherlands, he should be granted a residence
permit. He must be granted his basic rights and fundamental freedoms. He must be
allowed to practice his profession as a political science teacher. He must be allowed to
contribute his best in the peace negotiations between the National Democratic Front of
the Philippines and the Government of the Republic of the Philippines.
