I went to the Philippines for 10 days at the end of November to participate in several events hosted by APMM. I have spent the past two months working on one of the events, the International Migrants’ Tribunal. My december newsletter will feature these events, but here is list of the events that I attended.
Sunday 11/25: Conference on Human Right in the Philippines and the need for a coordinated response from the Asia Pacific Region
Monday and Tuesday 11/26-11/27: World Social Forum. This event was not organized by APMM, but APMM held a workshop on the crisis of forced migration within the forum.
Wednesday and Thursday 11/28-11/29: International Migrant’s Tribunal on the GFMD:
Friday: Political Rally to encourage the Filipino government to change labor export policy
Here are two video links from the Human Rights conference and International Migrants Tribunal. Check them out!
