Contemporary Struggles and Colonial Legacies in Mexico and the Philippines

Public meeting 

Mexico and the Philippines share contemporary and historical conditions: Both endure militarization and brutalization of social relations in context of war on drugs; both are being used as laboratories of neoliberal structural reforms; agroindustry and overexploitation of natural ressources is a major problem in both Mexico and the Philippines leading to further impoverishment and displacement of especially indigenous peoples; and the countries have been colonized for centuries by first Spain and then by US intervention and hegemony.

Meet Maya from AKMK - Mindanao Tri-People Youth for Peace (Philippines) and Mafer from the feminst group Voces de Lilith and PRT - Revolutionary Worker's Party, who will discuss similarities and differences between Mexico and the Philippines and the conditions for political struggle. The meeting will be in English!
