In November 2017, two Gabriela NY delegates embarked on an International Interfaith Humanitarian Mission in Mindanao. Join us on January 28 for May and Vijou's reportback on the plight of the displaced Moro people and the conditions under martial law.

Experience cultural performances, join the raffle for special prizes, pick up a copy of LAKAS zine and other GAB NY items.

We'll also be screening DEFEND—a documentary on martial law in Mindanao and its effects on the Moro, Lumad, and farmers. Hear the stories of Mindanawons as they challenge the government's narrative that there are no human rights violations under martial law.


As the Philippine people struggle against the onslaught of human rights violations under Duterte's administration, it is imperative that we connect with the conditions on the ground.

Three of our members are preparing to continue this mission: to listen and learn from communities directly impacted by martial law, to integrate with our peoples struggle, and to share their findings to inform our fight for genuine peace and liberation in the Philippines.

Funds from this reportback will go toward supporting the next exposure trip! You can also donate at tinyurl.com/gabnysolidarity2018.

Let's kick off the year by remembering who we fight for and what we are up against as we RISE, RESIST, UNITE!
