YOUTH AND STUDENT MOVEMENT IN THE PHILIPPINES
This video was filmed during an exposure trip of July 2011 in the Philippines and featured at the Anakbayan Seattle report back multi-media show “Halong” in November 2011.
An exposure trip is a program designed to expose people to the harsh realities and true living conditions experienced by the people of the Philippines through educational discussions, integrations, mass actions and community organizing.
Anakbayan members from the Los Angeles, Seattle, New York, and New Jersey chapters had the opportunity to learn about the youth and student conditions in the Philippines and the movement of young people demanding basic human rights for their future.
We were able to integrate with various youth and student organizations including Anakbayan chapters at the University of the Philippines Diliman and the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, as well as other youth groups, alliances and fraternities, including out-of-school youth, working youth, and youth organizing in the women’s movement, workers movement, cultural movement, and other sectors of Philippine society.
