Elections, human rights, environment, youth and student organizing: While Philippine society is largely unchanged since US colonial rule and elections are held like musical chairs for the ruling elites, a vibrant people's movement shines a path to a brighter future for the Filipino people. Amidst the poverty, political corruption and human rights abuses rises hope in the people's organizations who struggle for genuine freedom and democracy in the Philippines.
Come listen to the stories, and find out how we can become part of this living history. And help plan the next steps.
