Subway Directions:
B, D, F, V to 42nd Street – Bryant Park
7 Train to 42 Street – Bryant Park

Come and march in the annual Philippine Independence Day Parade under the mighty banner of The National Alliance For Filipino Concerns and all organizations behind it.

We will call attention to the unfortunate and corrupt commercialization of the Philippine Independence Day Parade. The parade is meant to celebrate our independence, but the outrageous costs set by the PIDC, $1100 for a corner booth! We will also show our concern for the current Rice Crisis in the Philippines, another issue that highlights the Philippines’ lack of independence when rice– a basic necessity- is controlled by foreign markets.

Bring empty pots, pans, and wooden spoons as noisemakers, so that the Filipino community of NYC will be pushed to take notice of our calls!

Finally, Let us come together as a united community to show our continuing and unwavering support for the beleaguered Sentosa 27++ nurses who are demanding justice for themselves and for all Filipinos working In the U.S. and abroad, and to express our community’s stand to legalize all undocumented Filipinos in the United States.

Please call (718 )565-8862 or
Visit us at the Bayanihan Filipino Community Center
40-21 69th Street Woodside, NY 11377
