Down with Imperialism

This is a very late post, but last November 2014, GABRIELA Youth UP Diliman with Justice for Jennifer-Junk EDCA alliance organized a night of performances for the 40 day commemoration of the death of Jennifer Laude, a transgender who was slaughtered by an American marine. It is incredibly frustrating  because we cannot seek justice because our government signed the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement last April 2014, which basically gives jurisdiction over the American troops in the country to the US. Even if they commit heinous crimes to Filipino people, the US government can absolve them and the Philippines can't do anything about it. The highest form of justice that can be achieved is to evict all US forces in the Philippines for this to never happen again.
