Updates on the Human Rights Crisis in the Philippines under Marcos, Jr.

15 September @ 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM EDT

Free

What does a second Marcos regime mean for human rights and social justice in the Philippines? Join us as we hear the latest updates on human rights through testimony of church leaders in the Philippines and advocates in the U.S.

Our Philippines-based speaker will share their firsthand experiences enduring surveillance and trumped-up charges, as well as to the general condition of the Filipino people under oppression and the role of progressive movements on the ground. A community member of a local grassroots organization will also share experiences of the curtailment of freedom of speech and the far reaches of the Philippine government’s repression on dissenters abroad.

RSVP at tinyurl.com/PHSideEvent. For more information, contact nychrp@gmail.com.

Please note we’ll be in the 10th Floor Meeting Room of the Church Center for the United Nations, 777 United Nations Plaza, New York, NY 10017.
