PEOPLE'S ARTISTS RAISE THEIR VOICES AGAINST TYRANNY
CIRCA-Pintig believe that each person deserves to be treated with dignity and that we all have a role to play in making sure that the human rights of everyone are upheld. Please join our virtual global event, "Talinhaga Laban sa Tirano: Raising Voices Against Tyranny", to be held on Friday, Sept. 18th (US, 6pm Pacific / 8pm Central , 9pm Eastern) / Sat, Sep 19th (Philippines, 9am).
This online event is a collaboration between arts collectives in the US and Philippines that are remembering the resistance against the Marcos dictatorship and continuing to raise voices against the killings, attacks, and the return of tyranny today. These artists commit to never forget the dark past while fighting back against today’s descent into dictatorial rule, with brutal attacks on human and civil rights, the moving of public funds towards military solutions to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the neglect of the people’s welfare.
They draw inspiration from decades of tireless work and narratives of artists, cultural workers, and the Filipino migrant community to resist Martial Law in the 1970s and the 1980s, as they call for a stop to the killings, the search for justice, and action on no less than 29 petitions against the Anti-Terror Law in the Supreme Court in Manila.
Together, let us raise our voices against tyranny and commit to expose and oppose the return of Martial Law in the Philippines!
If you are not able to join, please help us in spreading the word and in making this event possible through a tax-deductible donation. Our goal is to raise $2,000 to support the people's artists and their organizations in the US and the Philippines who are at the forefront of the cultural resistance against tyranny and all forms of oppression.
Thank you in advance for your generous donation. See you this Friday!
