Presented by AJLPP, GABNet-LA, JFAV and ANSWER Coalition

Filipino revolutionaries declared their independence from colonial Spain on June 12, 1898, 119 years ago. Two months later, the United States occupied Manila and declared war on the Philippines, crushing the young republic.

Today, Filipinos are still in struggle for true independence and sovereignty. With continued U.S. occupation and intervention, and a culture of impunity of human rights violations forced on the people of the Philippines, the Alliance for Just and Lasting Peace in the Philippines (AJLPP), the GABRIELA Network (GABNet), Justice for Filipino American Veterans (JFAV) and the ANSWER Coalition commemorate Philippine Independence with fierce struggle in the United States. Join us at the following exciting events this week:

Join us at an informative public forum on the history and ongoing struggle for justice and liberation in the Philippines. Topics include an anti-imperialist historical background on the situation in the Philippines, the struggles of women and youth, and current struggles against the proposed charter change and for human rights.
