Stop the Execution of Mary Jane Veloso


From the Frontlines: Report Back of Mission to Mindanao


Our report back is coming up on the 42th anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law in the Philippines and we have much to share about the people’s determination to overcome both man-made and natural disasters. Please come and spread the word!

On August 2-9, 2014, over 30 people from the USA joined the National America-Philippines Solidarity Affair (NAPSA) and Rehabilitation Mission in Southern Mindanao, Philippines. The NAPSA 2014 was initiated by Panaghiusa (“Unity”) and joined on by the youth of the Kapit Bisig Kabataan Network (KBKN).

On September 21, 2014, we invite you to join us as the participants of the mission share their personal experiences, thoughts and aspirations of the people who have been devastated by a series of typhoons resulting from decades of unmitigated environmental plunder.

FB event:

Join us as we protest the Noynoy Aquino administration’s signing of the Cybercrime Prevention Law and the escalating political killings across the Philippines under his regime. The Cybercrime Prevention Law violates people’s freedom of speech, internet freedom, and the right to privacy. It is being used as a way to censor and silence any dissent or criticism of the government. An anti-mining leader in Cagayan has already been arrested for a Facebook post, even though the law’s implementation has been temporarily suspended by the Supreme Court to review its unconstitutionality.

We especially condemn the brutal massacre of an indigenous B’laan family by the Philippine military in Tampakan, South Cotabato, Mindanao. The soldiers shot up the home of indigenous leader Daguil Capion, killing and desecrating the bodies of his pregnant wife, Juvy (27), and her two sons, Jordan (13) and Janjan (8). He and the B’laan tribe have been fighting against the foreign mining operations of Xstrata Sagittarius Mining Inc., which would destroy the environment to steal the rich gold and copper deposits in their area.
