Book on first IFPRS is off the press
Posted on 2 July 2011
IBON together with its co-organisers are pleased to announce the release of A Celebration of People's Struggles, A Festival of Hope—the
printed conference proceedings of the International Festival of People’s Rights and Struggles (IFPRS) held in Manila last year.
From July 2 to 6, 2011, a wide range of people representing workers, peasants, women, indigenous peoples, migrants, artists and cultural workers, youth and other sectors from all over the world gathered in Manila for the first ever IFPRIS. The festival served as space for peoples from Asia and the Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, North America, and Europe to share and learn from each other about new and longstanding threats to people’s individual and collective rights. It became an occasion to draw lessons from and celebrate the victories of people’s struggles to claim and assert their rights.
The IFPRS was jointly organized by the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (BAYAN), Concerned Artists of the Philippines (CAP), Habi Arts, IBON, International Migrants Alliance (IMA), International Women’s Alliance (IWA), League of Filipino Students (LFS), Peace for Life (PfL), Peoples’ Action Network, People’s Coalition on Food Sovereignty (PCFS), People’s Movement on Climate Change (PMCC), RESIST!, and the UP College of Mass Communications.
