Anakbayan-USA, a national Filipino youth organization will be having its founding assembly in Chicago on May 18, 2012.
We are reaching a historical stage in the Filipino-American youth movement. A national movement that clearly sees the role of the Filipino youth here in the US as agents of change in our communities and as an integral part to the struggle for genuine liberation and democracy back home in the Philippines.
A decade after the founding of the first Anakbayan chapter in Seattle in 2002, we have spread to the major cities in the US, educating, organizing and mobilizing the Filipino youth to defiantly declare: MAKIBAKA! HUWAG MATAKOT! (join the struggle! don’t be afraid!) against the escalating state repression and economic crisis.
Youth and students leaders from different part of the US will be converging in chicago to participate in this historic founding. See you all there!:)
LUMALAKAS! LUMALAWAK! LUMABALABAN! ANAKBAYAN!
I can’t wait to be part of this historical event! Mabuhay ang kabataan at mga mag-aaral Pilipino! Mabuhay Anakbayan!
