The Filipino/American Coalition for Environmental Solidarity (FACES) presents the annual balikbayan event:

PANDACAN: LEGACY OF PRIDE AND POLLUTION

Join FACES for an evening of live music, storytelling, and multimedia arts bearing witness to Pandacan.

More than 84,000 Filipinos live in Pandacan, the heart of Metro Manila. Families, students and businesses live in the vicinity of Pandacan's massive oil depots and face daily threats to their health and safety. Yet Pandacan is more than a toxic site - it is the proud birthplace of Filipino opera, balagtasan poetry, national revolutionaries, and communities' struggles for justice.

Featuring live zarzuela music, testimonials from FACES solidarity trip participants, guest speakers, and an exhibit highlighting Pandacan's rich history, current struggles and future possibilities.

Contact: Aileen Suzara, info [at] facessolidarity.org

Cost: Open to the public, donations gladly accepted, suggested sliding scale $7-30.
