Arturo P. Garcia | If “ the Samahang Pilipino Cultural Night is the culmination of a yearlong journey of education and preparation undertaken by the Samahang Pilipino cast and the by-product serves as an important avenue to share and explore Pilipino culture,” then the last presentation “BALIKBAYAN: The Journey Home “ on May 19 was a success. Going further, it served its purpose to “address issues relevant to the Pilipino and the Pilipino-American community. We in the Filipino community, further salute the Samahang Pilipino especially the script development groups who was able to integrate the issues like immigration, immigrant rights, Pilipino Diaspora, identity issues among Pilipinos and Filipino American youths, the yearning to go back to the homeland, the issue of political killings, systemic change and nationalism as well as integration to the mainstream- the real community empowerment in the American society into the cultural event. more... 0 Comments

fish | Today, the American public is no longer able to claim ignorance over the real cost of filling their SUVs with gas nor are they able to deny their status as a hypocritical, ungodly, pariah nation. Few people anywhere are unaware of America’s dirty little grab for the resources of weaker nations. For every full tank of gas INNOCENT human blood has been spilt, particularly the blood of those least able to defend themselves, CHILDREN. When faced with undeniable and unpleasant realities Americans seek refuge in the unreality of their televisions or other distracting entertainments. The cost of the American lifestyle today is served to local populations for breakfast, however, the media is careful to neatly package all distasteful material in justifications, propaganda and flagrant lies (that have no currency anywhere but America). more... 0 Comments

Vox Populi | Here's how it works: it's a free speech open mike for political expression for one hour and a half, while the audience listens, speaks out, eats, and drinks. Then, we close the last half hour with a performance artist or poet singing or reading poetry specific to that evening's subject matter. Local and national politics discussed civilly with dinner, drink and good company. Everyone has the opportunity to speak or just observe.
Mike Viola | Filipinos living in the United States, part of the 10 million diaspora of Overseas Filipino Workers around the world, comprise the largest group of Asians today. But knowledge about them is scarce. Instead, one encounters only trivialities, cliches and stereotypes spread by academics and Filipino historical associations. This review calls attention to one serious approach to understanding the Filipino community from a historical-materialist point of view. more... 0 Comments
