Andres Bonifacio lives!


his life, struggle and relevance to present-day challenges

Migrante Netherlands Utrecht and Stichting Linangan invite you to a webinar on Saturday, November 28 via Zoom:
PDT 8:00AM
CET 17:00
Philippine Time 12:00AM (Sunday November 29)

November 30 is the day of birth of Filipino hero Andres Bonifacio. On this day, we commemorate his heroism as one of the notable Filipinos who have struggled for the liberation of the Filipino people from the colonial rule of Spain. His unparalleled love for the motherland is a value each Filipino should aspire to imbibe.

Filipinos abroad who are submerged in a different culture oftentimes have a difficult time seeing themselves in the face of the everyday realities back home. Thus, it is very important to remind ourselves of our history and be well-versed on the different issues affecting Filipinos everyday.

PAARALANG MIGRANTE: Webinar on Defending the Defenders of Human Rights in the Philippines


Filipina lawyer Czarina Musni is in the Netherlands as a fellow of the Shelter City for Human Rights Defenders. She will share in the webinar her work with the Union of People’s Lawyers in Mindanao and how the lives of human rights defenders in the Philippines are always at risk.

In June this year, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights presented its report on grave rights abuses in the Philippines under the leadership of Pres. Rodrigo Duterte.

The report finds that national policies on illegal drugs, national security and countering terrorism under the Duterte regime has resulted in “systematic human rights violations, including killings and arbitrary detention, persistent impunity and the vilification of dissent”. “Widespread and systematic” extrajudicial killings, has resulted in tens of thousands of deaths including the urban poor people, human rights defenders, farmers, community organizers, activists, civil society groups and media outlets.

In response to the resolution, the European Union has, in September, threatened “to revoke its trade preferences to the Philippines because of “the seriousness of the human rights violations” committed by the Duterte administration. This is in reference to the EU GSP+ incentive.

The webinar will be conducted on November 20, 2020 at 20:00 – 22:00 (CET) via Zoom. To join via Zoom, please register here: https://bit.ly/PHumanRights.

Paaralang Migrante Webinar: Diktadurya sa Pilipinas noon at ngayon


Ika-23 Setyembre 1972, idineklara ni Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos ang batas militar sa Pilipinas.
Ipinasara ang mga pahayagan, radyo at telebisyon. Libo-libong mamamayan ang hinuli, tinortyur, nawala at pinaslang.

Ika-23 ng Mayo 2017, idineklara ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang batas militar sa Mindanao.
Binomba ang mga paaralang Lumad, winasak ang buong pamayanan sa Marawi, marami ang hinuli, tinortyur at nagpapatuloy ang pamamaslang di lamang sa Mindanao kundi sa buong bansa. Ipinasara ang ABS-CBN habang ang mga manunulat gaya ni Maria Reesa at mga abogado gaya ni Benjamin Ramos ay pinapatahimik.

Itinaga nina Pang. Marcos at Pang. Duterte ang kanilang sarili sa buong mundo bilang sikat na diktadur.

Ano ang ibig sabihin ng diktadurya?
Ano ang itinuturo sa atin ng ating kasaysayan ng pagbabago?

School for Filipino Migrants Webinar 3: Dictatorship in the Philippines, then and now

On September 23, 1972, Pres. Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law in the Philippines. Media outlets were closed such as papers, radio and televisions. Thousands of people were imprisoned, tortured, disappeared and killed.

On May 23, 2017, Pres. Rodrigo Duterte declared martial law in Mindanao Southern Philippines. The community schools of Lumad indigenous peoples were bombed, the whole village of Marawi was burnt and thousands of people since then are imprisoned, tortured and killed not only in Mindanao but in the whole country. The huge media channel ABSCBN is closed while writers like Maria Reesa and lawyers like Benjamin Ramos are forced to silence.

Both Pres. Marcos and and Pres. Duterte have marked themselves as internationally renowned dictators.

What does dictatorship mean?
What does our history of struggle for change teach us?
