WORKSHOPS:
SIMULTANEOUS WORKSHOPS A
2-4 PM

ν TENT 1: Forum on Quezon City Central Business Plan
Organized by N3T and KaSaMa-Pilipinas

ν TENT 2: ASEAN Economic Community Blueprint: Regional Integration
or Disintegration
Focus on the Global South and Stop the New Round Coaliton
A discussion on the recently adopted ASEAN Economic Community
Blueprint. The AEC blueprint provides the framework for economic
integration in the region. Many ASEAN observers however view with
concern the neo-liberal underpinnings of the agreement in particular
the over-emphasis on concluding free trade agreements. The forum aims
to provide an overview of the blueprint and a space for trade and
ASEAN activists to come together to discuss possible areas of
campaigning.

ν TENT 3: Prostitusyon: Usapin para sa Lahat ng Kilusan
Coalition Against Trafficking in Women – Asia Pacific and World
March of Women
Given counter-discourses denying violation of human rights within the
system of prostitution, a representative of survivors will testify
abouther and others’, in the Philippine network of survivors,
experiences. She, as well as advocates, will share analysis of
prostitution as it intersects with militarism and capitalist
globalization. CATW-AP and the World March of Women-Pilipinas invite
activists from all progressive movements, especially men to take up
the issue that lies at the core of movements, the denial of our
humanity, particularly women’s.

ν TENT 4: Human Needs, Human Rights
Amnesty International Philippines

ν TENT 5: Mga Kwento Mula Sa Amerika Latina: Pag-Asa, Pagkilos, At
Pagbabago
Focus on the Global South
Sabi ng marami, bahagi raw talaga ng Amerika Latina ang Pilipinas:
pareho tayong dumaan sa pananakop ng mga Kastila, dominasyon ng mga
Amerikano, at panunupil ng diktadurya. Sabi pa nga ng ilan, di lang
relihiyon kundi ang diwang Latino ang nagbubuklod sa atin: mainitin
ang ulo at matinding magmahal.
Subalit dun na yata nagtatapos ang ating pagkakatulad. Habang tayo’y
sadlak pa rin sa krisis at naghahari pa rin ang mga makapangyarihan
at mayayaman sa ating bayan, may malawakang pagbabago na nagaganap sa
Amerika Latina. Ilang gubyerno na ang sunud-sunod na napatalsik at
napalitan ng mga pamahalaang mas pabor sa mga mahihirap at malilit.
Ngayon, umiigting ang tunggaliaan at patuloy ang pag-aalsa ng mga
mamayan. Hindi tulad dito sa atin. Bakit?

SIMULTANEOUS WORKSHOPS B
4-6 PM

ν TENT 1: Maganda Ka Ba? Sino nag-sabi?: Beauty, Identity and Global
Corporate Monopoly of the Cosmetics Industry
International Gender and Trade Network
The proliferation of transnational corporations selling cosmetic
products in the Philippines and elsewhere has been a significant
factor in creating images of beauty that are systematically promoted
among young women. This workshop aims to discuss how ‘beauty’ is
superficially constructed and stereotyped through cosmetic products
and its relationship to the larger global market. Young women
participants will talk about how images of beauty are presented as a
‘need’ through advertisements of cosmetic products produced by
transnational corporations and how they can use their role as
consumers and actors to resist and act for alternatives to the global
capitalist system.

ν TENT 2: Forum on Urban Poor Issues
KaSaMa-Pilipinas

ν TENT 3: Karapatang Iginigiit, Kailan Makakamit: Pananaw at
Pakikibaka sa Lupa, aAgrikultura, at Kalakal
DRTS Thematic Working Group on Agrarian Reform
The forum aims to provide information and analysis on the present
agrarian reform conjuncture at the national and global levels. It
will gather 30-50 activists (working on agrarian reform, rural
development and other development issues) to discuss and identify key
issues and challenges for the social movements in the Philippines.
There will be speakers/representatives from social movements and
civil society groups and will be followed by an open forum/discussion.

ν TENT 4: US Troops and the War in Mindanao
Stop the War Coalition Philippines
The United States military has succeeded in re-establishing its
presence in the Philippines through the holding of joint exercises,
ship visits, and other deployments all over the country. A US
military unit has been stationed indefinitely in Mindanao and has
been conducting operations with the Philippine military. What are the
implications of all these on peace and security in the country and
beyond?

ν TENT 5: Peoples’ Forum on Justice and Community Actions to
confront Climate Change
Partido Kalikasan-Metro Manila Airshed
A public forum with a panel of experts on the latest issues on
climate change highlighting the issue of justice and how communities
should confront it. It will focus on the justice dimension of the
climate change; particularly on the issues of mitigation and the
challenge in the next two year negotiation for a post Kyoto emission
targets. It will also focus on the domestic (national and community-
level) needed response for the inevitable and current effects of
climate change; with particular emphasis on how we should re-align
our local and national budgeting and development planning &
implementation process to ensure that we have sufficient adaptation
in the next 5 years.

ν TENT 6: Debt, International Financial Institutions and Climate Change
Jubilee South and Freedom from Debt Coalition

FILMS
2-6 PM Multi-Purpose Hall

* Hinga . . . Hingal . . . Hingalo
A documentary on the problems of waste inceneration, its impact on
people’s health and the environment and citizen’s action to expose
and oppose it.

* Healing the Wounds of War
A documentary on internally displaced people during the military
operations in Pikit,Cotabato. It features the IDPs struggle to cope
amidst the ongoing all out war policy of the government. It features
their call for peace and their collective efforts survive during the
“Bakwit”

* Women of the Bases
A short documentary on the impact on women as a consequence of
hosting military facilities in the Philippines.

* Climate Change
A visual material on climate change, its impact on the environment
and people’s health.

* The Take (87 min)
Sa dumadaming mga pagawaan sa Argentina, manggagawa mismo ang
nagpapatakbo, namamahala at nagmamay-ari ng pabrika. Kwento it ng
Forja Autoparts, Zanon Ceramics at ng iba pang karanasan ng
expropriation, ang pag-takeover ng mga manggagawa ng kanilang
pinagtatrabahuhang pabrika. Hindi lamang nila binawi ang kanilang mga
trabahong nawala, sa pagbagsak ng ekonomiya ng Argentina, binawi nila
ang buong pagawaan. Isa marahil ito sa mga umuusbong na alternatibong
pamamaraan na nagpapatutoo sa katagang “Another world is possible.”

*The Story of the Stuff (20 min)
What is the Story of Stuff? From its extraction through sale, use
and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at
home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of
Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside
of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff
exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and
social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable
and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and
it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life
forever.

* Village in the Making (20 min)
A video report on people’s music in Okinawa, Japan, Thailand and
Indonesia

* Pakistan Under Siege (20 min)
A video documentation of the current political upheaval in Pakistan
in the wake of Benazir Bhutto’s assassination. It features the
advocates (lawyers and Justices) protest actions qagainst the
repressive regime of Pervez Musharaf

6-8 PM Main Stage

* Unconventional Warfare: US troops in Sulu (34 min)
Since February 2002, an undetermined number of Special Operations
Forces have been stationed in Sulu in the southern Philippines.
Considered as the elite unit of the US military specializing in
covert missions, the US troops roam around a small war-ravaged island
considered the stronghold of the Moro National Liberation Front and
the Abu Sayyaf Group. Barred by the Philippine constitution from
engaging in “actual combat,” these soldiers claim that they are
involved only in training exercises and humanitarian projects. But
this is not what the people there are saying. What are the US troops
really doing in Sulu? Will their actions finally put an end to
“terrorism” in the country?

* Lament of the Comfort Women (16 min)

A music video of original compositions rendered by the women of the
“Bahay na Pula” (Comfort House) who were victims of sexual abuse
in the hands of the Japanese army during World War II.

* Suicide Jumpers: Modern-day Heroes in a Modern-day War (10 min)
In August 2006, Israel rained thousands of bombs on Lebanon. Along
with the rest of the Lebanese people, between 30,000-50,000 Filipino
migrant workers – most of them female domestic helpers – were
subjected to what international law considers “collective
punishment.” In the course of the thirty-day bombardment, more
than ten Filipinos would jump off from buildings. With many
prevented from leaving by their employers, hundreds more would run
away, many in the dead of night and under the stars and bombs.)

* Debt (30 min)
A documentary on the debt situation in the Philippines, its
ramifications, impact on the Filipino people and the struggles of
organized civil society groups to expose & oppose the continuing govt
debt policy

* Moving Mountains (20 min)
A documentary on the mining situation in the Philippines, exposing
the role of mining multi-national companies as well the government
thru its military and para-military units in exploiting indigenous
lands for its mining expeditions and interests in the Philippines.

*Sumilao Farmers (10 min)
A short video documentation of the recent Mindanao to Manila “March
for Justice” of the peasant from Sumilao, Bukidnon.
