Saturday, 13 October
Pieter Nieuwlandstraat 95
We’ll be joined by Anakbayan’s general-secretary; Einstein Recedes. Anakbayan is a mass organization of the Filipino youth that seeks to unite the young generation from different sections of society to advance the cause of national democracy. Anakbayan works with workers, peasants, fisherfolk, the urban poor, students, out-of-school youth, women, professionals, migrants, Moros, Christians etc.
In this evening we’ll hear from Recedes’ experiences of activism and organizing in the Philippines; a semi-feudal state under the plague of US imperialism. From labor mobilization to the student struggle, and from the challenges to the state repression that comes with this.
There will also be contributions from activists working on such issues in the Netherlands. After this amazing learning experience, we’ll have an open floor discussion to reflect on what we must do to concretely to organize the masses across borders and build solidarity between the struggles of the different peoples of the world!
