JFAV Supports LA International Women’s Day March 8th Against the War
Los Angeles-- Money for Filipino Veterans, Not For the War!
With this as the battle cry, the Justice For Filipino Veterans (JFAV) militantly supports and joins the International Women’s Day March led by the MARIPOSA Alliance and Gabriela Network in Los Angeles on Saturday, March 8.
The International Women’s Day Los Angeles March 8th Against the War will start on Saturday, at 10:30 AM, March 8 at the corner of Olympic and Broadway and end at Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles.
JFAV, an alliance of veterans organizations, youth and students, community and people’s groups also expressed militant solidarity with the Filipino organizations in the Philippines who opposed US intervention and are calling for the ouster of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and her corrupt regime on March 8 in major cities of the country.
JFAV also pays tribute to the sacrifices of Filipino women and sisterhood in fighting all forms of colonialism and tyranny from the American occupation in 1899, the Japanese invasion of World War II and the Marcos dictatorship.
Until now, Filipinos are fighting for true freedom, democracy, social and national liberation.
Let this Women’s march be a fighting tribute to them and to their tenacity in ”holding half-the sky” and working for a better world for the future. MAKIBAKA HUWAG MATAKOT!
