This September 21st, 2022 is the 50th anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law in the Philippines in 1972, which lasted 14 years. Filipino youth today have no direct experience with the events during the time, thus we must learn through history books and storytelling. What happened during Martial Law? Why does it matter today?

Join Kamalayan Konsciousness this Friday, September 9th at 6pm as we host a *free* dinner and discussion at Filipino Centre Toronto. We’ll hear from participants on what they currently know (or don’t know) about Martial Law through sources such as the media or family members, as well as hear stories directly from invited Martial Law survivors. To conclude, we will create a collective zine illustrating our research on this moment in Philippine history.
