Filipino Town Hall
On April 30, 2022, we hosted our second annual Town Hall on the Philippine Human Rights Act in collaboration with the San Diego chapters of Anakbayan and Malaya Movement, with guest speakers from Liyang Network and Kabataan Alliance. This event shed light on the Duterte regime’s brutal human rights violations, the situation of the Indigenous Lumad communities of Mindanao, and the New Bataan 5 Massacre. We informed our community on the details of the PHRA, the progress our campaign has made so far, and how we can take collective action together.
The Philippines is one of the deadliest countries for activists, journalists, unionists, and land defenders. We must continue to mobilize to defend human rights in the Philippines. To learn how you can become involved beyond the event, please view our Calls to Action document.
