On November 17, 2015, activists, civil society leaders, academics, and thinkers from different global regions will gather in Manila, Philippines for the 3rd International Festival of People’s Rights and Struggles (IFPRS) at the Bahay ng Alumni. The IFPRS is a space for peoples to share and learn from each other about new and longstanding issues related to people’s individual and collective rights. The IFPRS offers a wide range of opportunities for learning and networking with simultaneous forums, workshops, strategy sessions, film showings and exhibits.
Some 3,000 participants from 40 countries across Asia and the Pacific, Africa, Middle East, Latin America, North America and Europe concluded the first-ever International Festival for Peoples’ Rights and Struggles (IFPRS) on the first week of July in the Philippines with an overflowing of energy and commitment to defend people’s rights and carry on the struggle for freedom, democracy and social justice. The IFPRS was a rare opportunity for people’s movements, progressive institutions, groups and individuals across the globe to share and learn from each other about new and longstanding threats to people’s individual and collective rights, while exploring solutions that address the systemic roots of these problems.
