Yolanda’s aftermath and Autonomous Initiative (Philippines)

Friday, November 29th, 2013

Yolanda is one of the most destructive typhoons to have visited the Philippine archipelago. It pummeled the Visayas region, particularly Leyte and some parts of Cebu and Panay areas. Super typhoon Yolanda left the archipelago with thousands of dead people, commercial and residential structures destroyed, power knocked-out; agriculture and livelihoods are washed-out that caused billions of losses. Destruction is so extensive that it caused unimaginable effect to the survivors.

Government’s Response caused more devastation to the people

The Philippine archipelago is in the frontline of calamity brought by storms. It is a common knowledge impossible to miss especially by the government which is supposed to be the authority in terms of preparation and rehabilitation. The huge number of dead people scattered in Leyte is attributable to the incapacity of the government to install preparatory mechanism to lessen casualties, the Philippine government did not learn from our past experience of havoc due to storm surges.

Appeal from anarchist comrades concerning Typhoon Yolanda (Philippines)

Thursday, November 14th, 2013

On November 8, 2013, typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda (local name) shot its landfall in the Philippines. Typhoon Yolanda is one of the strongest typhoons which struck Philippines on a record. It has sustained winds of 235 kph (147 mph) with gusts of 275 kph (170 mph) when it made landfall. By those measurements, Yolanda can be compared to a strong Category 4 hurricane in the U.S, nearly in the top category, a 5.

People dead, missing. Houses, every single building is wrecked. No food, water, medicine, a good place to stay. People are starting to loot, steal. Children are sick, hungry, cold. For 5 days, all that we have to see and hear are how Yolanda has damaged us. No amount of words to exactly describe what it has done. But we are never hopeless. We will stand again and WE NEED YOU.

ECO CAMP BACKGROUND

Eco-Camp is an activity organized by Mobile Anarchist School with the help by Local Autonomous Network (LAN) both active in the Philippines.

Demo for Global Day of Action on Climate Justice (Philippines)

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012

14 November 2012

Global Day of Action on Climate Justice

A group of almost 20 anarchists with Guy Fawkes mask participate in a global day of action on climate justice. In coordination with other local progressive group the Local Autonomous Network gave solidarity to the climate justice issue stating “corporation and government are the direct perpetrator” so we need “system change not climate change”. The problem of global warming and the earth’s destabilizing climate are caused by the emission of heat trapping greenhouse gases (GHGs), from the historical accumulated pollution of different corporations, not only by the industrialized countries but the whole capitalist magnate. There is already a massive and destructive impact on human in terms of food security, drinkable water, health and livelihood. The miserable thing is the governments are not taking any action about this matter because of the benefit they can get from the corporations.

Destroy corporation before it destroys you!

Smash the state before they smash your community!
