Come support BAYAN USA-NE activists as they raise funds for a farewell (despedida) before joining the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines (ICHRP) for an International Solidarity Mission in the Philippines. During their exposure trip, they will learn about the concrete conditions of the Filipin@ people by integrating with the most oppressed and exploited communities. BAYAN USA-NE activists will meet with the Lumad community, some who have received threats of displacement and actually left from their ancestral domains by multinational corporations, and learn about the ways in which they organize to resist.
