About the International Festival of People’s Rights and Struggles (IFPRS)
Amidst this panorama of widening and intensifying people’s resistance across the globe, workers, peasants, women, indigenous peoples, migrants, artists and cultural workers, youth and many other sectors and communities from all over the world gathered in Manila for the International Festival of People’s Rights and Struggles (IFPRS) from July 2-6, 2011.
Peoples from Asia and the Pacific, Africa, North America, Europe and Latin America and the Middle East found a liberating space in the IFPRS to share and learn from each other about new and longstanding threats to people’s individual and collective rights. It was also an occasion to draw lessons from and celebrate the victories of people’s struggles to claim and assert their rights.
IFPRS was organized jointly by Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (BAYAN), International League of Peoples’ Struggles, Concerned Artists of the Philippines, Habi Arts, IBON International, International Migrants Alliance, International Women’s Alliance, League of Filipino Students, Peace for Life, Peoples’ Action Network, People’s Coalition on Food Sovereignty, People’s Movement on Climate Change, RESIST!, Asian Peasant Coalition, Indigenous People's Movement for Self-determination and Liberation, Agham, Kalikasan, and the UP College of Mass Communications, with the participation of many international organizations.
