Join Bayan-USA, Anakbayan Silicon Valley and Pilipino Association for Workers and Immigrants for an educational discussion and prop making in preparation for the People's SONA in SF later this month. On July 28th President Benigno Aquino II of the Philippines will deliver his State of the Nation Address (SONA). The People's SONA is an event where the people of the Philippines will expose the fact that Aquino has not addressed the root causes of the issues facing the majority of Filipinos such as the rising prices of commodities, the plight of Yolanda victims, the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement, and human rights violations.

As a special guest, Anu Mandavilli of Friends of South Asia will present on the human rights situation facing the people of India in order to show the need for international solidarity against state violence against the people.
