9/22/2011 Anniversary of Martial Law and Filipino American Punk Rock, Unplugged

Via APEX Express:

On this 39th anniversary of Martial Law in the Philippines, hear from the Filipino Community Center’s monthly Talakayan (Discussion).  This month, the FCC put together Remembering Martial Law, Celebrating International Solidarity .  The discussion focuses on the experiences of Filipino organizers and their allies on an exposure trip to the Philippines several weeks ago-allies like Alex Tom from the Chinese Progressive Association, Steve Williams fromPOWER , and Bounce from the Trust Your Struggle collective. Contributor Marie Choi and R.J. Lozada piece together a montage of reflection.

Also, tune in to the sonic assault of Filipino America punk band, Digma, in the first live performance on Apex Express in a long, long time.  We’ll listen to their music, and bridge movement building to cultural production.

Thursdays 7 – 8 p.m. PST
KPFA 94.1 FM, KPFB 89.3 FM in Berkeley; KFCF 88.1 FM in Fresno
