Please join us this Friday December 3rd at 6pm for a short presentation on the situation of political prisoners in Palestine and the Philippines, followed by a letter writing workshop!

We are hoping to educate each other and attendees about the deeply related settler-colonial and semi-colonial oppression of Palestinian and Filipino people, and the centrality of the fight to free all political prisoners in both of their national-liberation struggles.

The workshop is intended to encourage people to take action in solidarity with these prisoners by writing them with letters of support. We want to show them that they are not alone in their struggles and have support from all around the world. We will provide information on the prisoners we will be writing to and will provide any guidance or support you need to help you write your letters.

We will be specifically focusing on the imprisonment of land defenders in Palestine and the Philippines, which is deeply intertwined with the repression of Indigenous land defenders on whose lands we will be writing on. We recognize the struggle of Indigenous nations to reclaim their lands from so-called “Canada” is deeply interlinked with the struggles for land in Palestine and the Philippines.

This event is being organized by Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM), Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, Anakbayan Toronto and Canada Philippines Solidarity Organization (CPSO). We hope for this to be the start of an ongoing series of letter-writing workshops.
