In commemoration of the Treaty of Paris of 1898, the New York Committee for Human Rights in the Philippines (NYCHRP) presents
“Our Connected Struggle: The Treaty of Paris Educational Symposium.”
We will focus on how U.S. imperialism has historically impacted and currently impacts the four nations that the U.S. bought from Spain at the end of the Spanish-American War – the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Cuba, and Guam – their peoples, and their diasporas.
Our Connected Struggle seeks to bring together peoples’ organizations that represent these four nations, to learn from each other, and to build a united front against U.S. imperialism in our homelands today.
The event takes place on Friday, February 12, 6-9pm EST, to coincide with BAYAN USA’s annual Philippine Solidarity Week, which commemorates the anniversary of the Philippine American War of 1899.
Location TBD. Get more information by emailing NYCHRP@gmail.com, or visiting NYCHRP.info.
