Makibaka Fire

Makibaka Fire

What is Makibaka and what does it mean? Makibaka is a call to action.

It is also used as a chant in the streets when the Filipino community organizers rally and protest to demand social change.

 

"Makibaka! Huwag Matakot!"

"Dare to struggle! Dont be afraid!"

 

MAKIBAKA

Malayang Kilusan ng Bagong Kababaihan (Free Movement of New Women), or MAKIBAKA, was founded in 1970 by none other than Maria Lorena Barros.

 

Student and activist organizations in the Philippines began to recognize the need for increased participation of women in the movement. A common phrase used to describe this necessity was “women hold up half the sky.” As women were increasingly empowered to join revolutionary organizations, there was still a lot of work to be done in addressing women’s oppression in society. Women’s bureaus were always a part of the structure of many of these organizations, but there was a clear need for a group specifically formed by women for the purpose of bringing women’s issues to light.
