Justice for Grand Isle Shipyard Workers
On Monday, 18th March, the day after the death anniversary of Flor Contemplacion, supporters of the Justice for Grand Isle Shipyard Filipino Workers campaign staged a picket in front of the Philippine Embassy in Washington, D.C. to demand the resignation of Philippine Ambassador Cuisia.
Flor Contemplacion was a Filipina domestic worker who was executed in Singapore in 1995 based on what many felt were unfounded charges of murder. Flor became a symbol of neglect by the Philippine government towards overseas Filipino workers (OFW) and galvanized a global network of migrant rights advocates through Migrante International.
We, member organizations and ally organizations of the International League of Peoples’ Struggles existing in the south of the Korean Peninsula, vehemently condemn the ongoing joint war exercises of the United States and Republic of Korea (ROK) on and around the Korean Peninsula. Let all people of conscience unite in calling for an end to the war games in the cause of a just and lasting peace. We support a peaceful resolution by stopping the war games, ending the Korean War once for all with a peace treaty, removing of the United State military from the region, and renunification through dialogue and political process.
