Amidst an unprecedented global economic crisis and burgeoning movement for change worldwide, the US Chapter of Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (BAYAN USA) held its Third Congress on March 27-28 in Los Angeles, California and pledged to expand the ranks of people fighting against imperialism and for national liberation and democracy in the Philippines. With the theme to “Strengthen our alliance and intensify our political struggle against the US-Arroyo clique and for the rights and welfare of Filipinos in the US,” BAYAN USA’s historic Congress brought together 155 women, youth and students, educators, labor organizers, artists, service providers, health professionals, unemployed individuals, and others from 14 member organizations across the country in an electrifying event which unified its participants and set the alliance’s strategic course for the next three years.
