William "Billy" Funa-ay Claver: Towards Genuine Implementation of the Indigenous Peoples' Rights Law

Selected Speeches and Statements  
Edited by: Giovanni B. Reyes and Kathleen T. Okubo

"Atty. Claver dared to stand up for the rights of the Cordillera people during Martial Law when many lawyers were intimidated by the military. He selflessly defended victims of human rights violations who are mostly poor farmers. Had there been two or three lawyers with Atty. Claver's daring and dedication, it would have been easier for our people during Martial Law." - Rev. Eduardo P. Solang, former Provincial Board Member, Mountain Province and past Chairman of the Cordillera Peoples Alliance, April 24, 2003.
