Guest Speaker Cristina Rey '19E will give a history of indigenous resistance in the Philippines and share first-hand updates on the current conditions of indigenous peoples in Mindanao who are being harassed, bombed, raped and murdered by Philippine military forces in response to their resistance to multinational mining corporations and other extractive industries. In addition, she will discuss one of the primary expressions of indigenous self-determination in Mindanao today: alternative community schools whose three basic pillars are academics, sustainable and organic agriculture, and holistic health. Her experiences in the Philippines can help shine light on the inside of the media blackout for those of us outside of its bubble.
