4/20 OAKLAND: End US Military Aid to the Philippines! Hip Hop x Speaking Tour
Join us for dinner, performances, and speakers from the people's movement in the Philippines, who will share about the deteriorating human rights situation under the Duterte regime -- and the organizing in resistance. What is the role of U.S. military aid -- in funding Duterte's brutal War on Drugs, Martial Law in Mindanao, and worsening attacks on indigenous communities, labor leaders, journalists, and human rights defenders? What can we do in solidarity?
