DIWA NG KASARINLAN 2015, a Free event!

Diwa Ng Kasarinlan 2015 Poster

Anakbayan-Toronto happily invites everyone to the fourth annual Diwa ng Kasarinlan (DnK), Spirit of Independence, to commemorate the 123rd year founding of the Katipunan and to celebrate the continuous efforts by Filipinos worldwide for genuine independence in the Philippines.

DnK is an initiative by Filipino youth to commemorate the 123rd year founding of the Katipunan, the patriotic society which launched the Philippine Revolution from Spain in 1896 under the leadership of Andres Bonifacio.

Diwa ng Kasarinlan is a free all-day event that aims to bring together Filipino youth across the Greater Toronto Area and beyond for the purpose of promoting national pride through awareness of our history, the current challenges we face as a people, and discussions of what youth can do to help overcome these challenges.

This year’s theme, Our Revolutionary Roots: Ang Pag Ibig sa Tinubuang Lupa (The Love of Country) will be explored through artistic performances and displays to send out messages of social justice in the Philippines. We will have performances that will showcase local talents and talks highlighting aspects of our rich history and culture.

We need genuine changes in our motherland and Filipino youth has a place in the struggle to oust Aquino and stop Western & Chinese aggression towards the Philippines.

The event will take place July 25th, 1-4 pm at the OPSEU Region 5 office in 31 Wellesely St. East, Toronto; refreshments will be provided and please visit facebook.com/Anakbayan.Toronto for more details.

This event is co-sponsored and supported by OPSEU Region 5, Philippine Advancement Through Arts and Culture (PATAC), Filipino Worker’s Network with the support, Bayan and Migrante Canada Organizations, SEAS (Support enhance Access Service Centre), and UFCW Canada.

Join us, get to know Filipino pride for the right reasons!
