HACIENDA LUISITA:
On Thursday, December 8, 2005, the United Luisita Workers' Union [ULWU] and the Central Azucarera De Tarlac Labor Union [CATLU] signed their respective agreements with management and the strike in Hacienda Luisita was finally over. The one-year strike is a historic victory for the people of Hacienda Luisita.

Local activists who recently visited the Philippines and spent time at Hacienda Luisita will offer a multimedia presentation and facilitated discussion to help us understand the history and current situation at this prominent plantation.

HUMAN RIGHTS DAY:
December 10 is International Human Rights Day. We will commemorate this day with a focus on human rights in the Philippines.

The Philippines is in a state of undeclared martial law, with members of progressive people’s organizations becoming targets of state terrorism at the hands of the US-backed Gloria Macapagal Arroyo regime. Please join us as we learn about who is being targeted, who is behind these killings, and what we can do about it.
