AJLPP Supports JFAV Mass Actions for Filipino Veterans Rights- October 6-10

Los Angeles—The AJLPP stands for and supports the final offensive in the US Congress focused on the Senate to call a conference committee to pass the veterans bill, AJLPP West Coordinator Arturo P. Garcia said.

The mass actions for veterans rights and equity will be held from October 6 to 10, 2008 U.S wide.

US Wide Mass Actions

The AJLPP supports the nationwide mass actions for veteran rights. The nationwide mass actions started last Sunday , Oct.5 with a community forum at UCLA.

In Los Angeles, was held n Sunday, October 5 from 3:00 to 5:00 PM at Ackermann Hall by the Justice for Filipino American Veterans (JFAV) and the Samahang Pilipino at UCLA to rally colleges and universities and high school students from Southern California and the community for a final push for the Filipino World War II veterans.

It was attended by JFAV, Gabriela Network, ANSWER-LA and veterans groups. Action planning and immediate pans were discussed during the meeting.

On Monday, October 6, rallies will be held at Senator Burr’s office in North Carolina and Washington DC Capitol to dramatize support for besieged Filipino Veterans. Senator Burr was instrumental in blocking the motion of Sen. Daniel K. Akaka(Democrat, Hawaii) on the Senate floor last Sept. 23 for the Senate and House to form a conference committee on S. 1315. This bill that provides benefits to Filipino veterans living in the Philippines has been repeatedly stalled.

Mass Actions in LA and San Francisco

On Friday, October 10, Los Angels and San Francisco will hold their rallies in front of the Federal Building in the two cities for the veterans. The Justice for Filipino American Veterans (JFAV) and the Samahang Pilipino at UCLA will lead the rally in front of the monument to the Spanish –American War at the Westwood Federal building 11000 Wilshire, Los Angeles from 5 to 7 P.M.

In San Francisco, JFAV-San Francisco and veterans and student groups will rally in front of the Federal Building at 450 Golden Gate Avenue in downtown area. They will push for the convening of the conference committee to reconcile the two separate bills S 1315 and HB 68097 in Congress.

The AJLPP calls on all Filipino American organization and mainstream allies to join the JFAV final push for recognition, justice and equity for 18,000 remaining and for the memory of the others who gave their lives for freedom and democracy.

“This fight is about racism and the Filipino veterans victimized by such racist laws since 1946 when the rescission act was passed. The unjust law excluded 250,000 Filipino veterans from receiving benefits and recognition that they deserved as American World War II veterans. “ the AJLPP statement ended.
