Event description

Description

"We suffer but we endure
And draw up gold and pearl
From depths of character
Formed so long in struggle."

These are the words of Jose Maria Sison, a revolutionary Filipino leader who continues to fight for the liberation of his country. We had the honor of meeting him, Julieta De Lima, Coni Ledesma, Luis Jalendoni and others who have paved the way for genuine social, economic, political change in the Philippines. As the Philippines undertakes another hit of U.S. influence at the hands of Trump and collaborator, Philippines president Duterte...it is now more than ever that we ask Americans to help hold the U.S. accountable for its actions.

As a build up to December 10th, International Human Rights Day....join International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines Portland activists, Drew & Trisha Elizarde-Miller to hear about their time with the Peace Negotiating Panel of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines. Experience the stories of the founders of the Philippines liberation movement as Drew shares his poetry and Trisha leads you through a yoga experience. We will start off with poetry and our report back of our time in the Netherlands meeting the revolutionary leaders, break off getting to know other grassroots organizations in the PDX area, and then close out with a gentle yoga session.

All funds will be going towards Moving the Mountains, a documentary portraying the lives of the founders of the Philippines liberation movement. Please view trailer here!

Hors d'ourvres & Drink are included.
