Anakbayan New York Interest Form
Anakbayan New York (ABNY) is a comprehensive National Democratic mass organization of Filipino youth and students in New York. Our grassroots work focuses on issues back home in the Philippines as well as local campaigns here in NYC.
ABNY currently has two Chapter-Organizing-Committees (COC's) based in Manhattan & Queens.
***** What is Anakbayan? *****
In English, Anakbayan translates to “children of the nation.” Anakbayan is a comprehensive National Democratic mass organization and we aim to build unity among Filipino youth of all backgrounds — young workers, students, peasants/farmers, professionals, women, migrants, Filipino-Americans, etc. — to stand for the basic rights and welfare of Filipinos at home and abroad.
Here in the U.S. and based in the belly of the beast, our chapter connects youth and student issues of our communities in New York City to the struggles of the people in the Philippines. All youth and students are agents of social change, so all youth and students are welcome to join. Anakbayan New York is a chapter of Anakbayan-USA.
***** Background *****
Established on the 30th of November 1998–the anniversary of Andres’ Bonifacio and pre-Martial Law organization, Kabataang Makabayan – Anakbayan seeks to unite the youth from different sectors of society to advance the cause of national democracy: workers, peasants, fisherfolk, urban poor, students, out-of-school youth, women, professionals, migrants, Moros, Christians, etc. Anakbayan holds the belief that Philippine society today is not truly free nor democratic. It is under the control of U.S imperialism, along with local landlords, big capitalists, and corrupt gov’t officials. The National Democratic Struggle seeks to realize true national liberation for the country and the realization of the democratic rights of the people.
