Join Zoom Link with automatic registration:

We have taken the initiative to facilitate an on-line information Forum: Perspectives on a People’s Agenda for Philippine Elections 2022 – Exploring what a people’s agenda can mean for the migrant, overseas and the international community. 

Mr. Walden Bello, former Congressman who is well known to many of us abroad in his role in the Committee on Migration while he served in the House of Representatives, is now contesting the Elections as a Vice Presidential candidate. Mr. Bello has also first-hand experience of living as an exile, having been in the US for quite several years, during the era of the Marcos dictatorship. He is also an acknowledged expert and public scholar on major areas of both Philippine and Global economic, social, and political issues. His co-candidates on the Laban Ng Masa Election slate are Ka Leody de Guzman, Labour leader as Presidential candidate and Luke Espiritu, Labour Lawyer as Senatorial candidate.

Programme: Focus Topics of the Forum

  • What Key points of the social, economic, and political agenda of Laban ng Masa in the Philippines?
  • What Priority focus for the Migrant and Overseas Filipinos & Key features for international relations?
  • What is the importance of contesting in this Philippines Election of 2022?
  • What perspective for building the Laban ng Masa programme going forward?

The format of this information Forum will be a Round Table – building an interactive exchange on these four areas – asking short topic introductions – and taking questions and comments from the participants.
