PUBLIC FORUM: NDF and the Struggle for Peace in the Philippines

Calendar Community May 10, 2019 at 3:40 pm

coni:edreSince President Rodrigo Roa Duterte came to power in 2016, his government has turned its back many of its promises to the Filipino people. Economically, job creation is at its lowest and the practice of labor contractualization remains. Politically, the country is more divided than ever, with the government resorting to fascistic measures to silence critics. As we enter the second half of Pres. Duterte’s term, we invite Filipino-Canadians and other concerned individuals to discuss prospects for just and lasting peace, genuine development, and sovereignty in the Philippines.

Join us together with our special guest speakers

Ms. Coni Ledesma
Member of the peace panel of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, International spokesperson of MAKIBAKA, revolutionary women’s movement in the Philippines

Atty. Edre Olalia
President, National Union of People’s Lawyers, Philippines
