Join us to learn about the ongoing struggles to resist fascist dictatorship and state violence and struggle for genuine agrarian reform and a just and lasting peace in the Philippines!
This very special event will focus on the Visayas Region where farmers who have been reclaiming idle lands to till and feed their families have faced the most brutal state repression condoned by corrupt President Duterte and led by the Armed Forces. There have been over 50 extra-judicial killings on Negros Island alone. And yet the people continue in their quests for land to till, for economic justice, and toward a just and lasting peace.
There are many lessons we can draw from the revolutionary spirit and militant struggles of the people in the Philippines. We hope you will join us in the call for Justice for all victims of extrajudicial killings! Resist state terror in the Philippines! Long Live International Solidarity!
