Filipino activists kick off internationally coordinated protests vs Obama Asia trip

April 23 - On the day United States President Barack Obama is set to arrive in Japan on the first leg of his East Asia tour, activists under the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (New Patriotic Alliance) marched to the US embassy in Manila to denounce what they called the “US imperialist agenda in Asia”. The groups clashed with police who were guarding the US embassy. Police used a water cannon against the protesters.

“The US pivot to Asia combines military rebalancing and free trade agreements like the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement. The US seeks to maintain its dominance in the region by violating the national sovereignty and plundering the economies of their  so-called ‘allies’. The people of Asia stand to gain nothing from the Obama visit and the US agenda he carries,” said Bayan secretary general Renato M. Reyes, Jr.

Bayan is coordinating with various anti-bases and anti-globalization groups in Japan, South Korea and the United States for a series of protests against the US pivot and the TPPA. Apart from the April 23 protest in Manila, anti-bases and anti-war groups in Japan such as the Asia-Wide Campaign are set to hold protests in time for the US-Japan Summit on April 24. Groups in South Korea are also expected to hold protests against US military bases in the Korean peninsula and the continued implementation of the US-Korea Free Trade Agreement and the promotion of the TPPA. Bayan-USA will join Japanese and Korean activists in the US for coordinated actions in the afternoon of April 25 in Los Angeles, Seattle, New York and San Francisco. Filipino migrants are expected to hold protest actions on April 27.

chiefcane asked: I have a friend who truly believes Status First Nations have more "rights" than everyone else in Canada. He firmly believes we should stop crying about injustices because he had "nothing to do with it", it's "ancient" history, and we should just integrate already. Now I am proud of my heritage and of our treaties, I do not abuse my hunting and fishing rights. I don't feel he has any cause to point the finger other than institutionalized racism as a rural Albertan. Do you have any links for him?

A lot of privileged folks, whose success, well-being, and preferential treatment are always afforded to, like to believe that they are guilty of nothing and had “nothing to do with it” while still reaping the benefits of racism and our oppressive society. They don’t want to confront the fact that they may play a part in this, even if only by inaction. Because they reap these benefits, they are accountable and they will never want to look at that because they would never want to think of themselves as a bad person. They think being a bad person is about individual acts and attitudes. Because they’re not out there partaking in individual shitty actions, they’re only keeping their spot in the system of privilege they have access to. 

Anyways, here are some links for further reading.

tiliassa asked: Racism permeates in every country on earth. It will never be possible to eradicate this disease, because no matter how equal everyone will become in society, there will always be that one thing that will drive morons to make themselves feel better and gain an advantage over others. My question is, why don't all humans just die?
