Civilian-Soldier Alliance Philippine Solidarity Statement


As a network of civilians who support veterans and service members organizing against U.S. militarism, Civilian-Soldier Alliance members believe in the power of resistance to war and occupation led by those who’ve experienced it. We stand in solidarity with the people’s struggle in the Philippines, a movement for self-determination and liberation that has been on the frontlines against U.S. imperialism since 1899. In commemoration of the Philippine-American War, we honor the legacy of David Fagen, a Black soldier who defected from U.S. troops to join those fighting for the freedom of the Philippines, and recognize all the ways in which those organizing from within and outside empire work to undermine it together. We are inspired by the more just and beautiful world that those in the Philippines fight for, build, and remind us of every day.
