Solidarity Statement from Anakbayan-Philippines National Chapter

Message of Solidarity to our Youth Compatriots from Anakbayan-New York/New Jersey on Its First General Assembly
National Executive Committee, Anakbayan-Philippines National Chapter
February 2, 2008

Warm nationalist and anti-imperialist greetings! Mabuhay ang mga kabataang Pilipinong lumalaban sa buong mundo!

Anakbayan in the Philippines would like to express our most heart-felt greetings of solidarity to Anakbayan-New York/New Jersey on the event of its First General Assembly.

We are always proud and honored to get ahold of news of developments and achievements of our chapters abroad. We believe that despite the thousands of miles that separate you from the homeland you remain united with the principles and struggles of the national democratic and anti-imperialist youth movement here in the Philippines. Your perseverance and commitment affirm the noble role of the Filipino-American youth in the national democratic movement.

The occasion of your First General Assembly with the objective to orient, consolidate and mobilize our Anakbayan members there for the advancement of the national democratic and anti-imperialist struggle is cause for celebration. We look forward to the plans, projects and campaigns that you are prepared to wage and await news of them here in the homefront.

We congratulate you on this momentous event. We also congratulate the new set of officers you have elected. We encourage them to go about their tasks as the standing Executive Committee of your chapter in charge of ensuring administrative, ideological, political and organizational consolidation of your ranks. The principles of mass organization that rely strongly on our tasks to arouse, organize and mobilize the broadest ranks of progressive youth would spring only from a strong collective leadership and organizational unity.

We are deeply grateful of your commitment to work in support of the youth movement here in the Philippines while sharply and diligently addressing the issues of your local community in the United States.

Long live Anakbayan! The youth united will never be defeated! Pahirap sa masa, patalsikin si Gloria! ###
