SUMAMA SA MARTSA-RALI SA HUNYO 24

AJLPP-USA | Nanawagan ang lahat ng mga grupong nagtataguyod para sa ganap na karapatan para sa lahat ng migrante lalo na sa lahat ng mga Pilipino na aktibong lumahok sa demosntrasyon sa Linggo, Hunyo 24, 2007 sa Hollywood and Vine sa Los Angeles.

Gusto ng mga naghaharing uri na sila ang magdesisyon kung ano ang kapalaran ng 12 millyong migrante at manggagawang walang papeles na tinatwag nilang “ilegal’ dito sa Amerika. Ang sabi natin at HINDI! HINDI tayo papayag na alisin nila ang petisyon para sa mga pamilya at ibawal ang pagpepetisyon ng mga magulang at mga kapatid. Hindi rin tayo payag na ipalit nila sa batas sa family reunification ang “ guest worker program” na nakabatay sa mga puntos na masyadong magulo at hindi maintindihan at pabor sa mga kapitalista
GANAP NA KARAPATAN PARA SA more...  0 Comments

STOP EXTRAJUDICIAL KILLINGS IN THE PHILIPPINES

AJLPP-New York | A year ago today, Rafael Markus Bangit – a leader of Bayan Muna, of the Cordillera Peoples’ Alliance, of the Binodngan Peoples’ Organization, and of the Malbong tribe of Kalinga; a social activist, a political warrior, and a tribal peacemaker; a husband and a father – was assassinated by one of the Arroyo regime’s death squads. The wound that his assassination has inflicted on us continues to fester. The anger and the anguish in the hearts of his family have not healed. And this is because the perpetrators of the crime have not yet been brought to justice; indeed, their bosses remain in power and continue to order the killing of activists.
