AfroSOC Movie Night: The Guerrilla is a Poet
December 20, 2019 at 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Short URL: https://siliconvalleydsa.org/?p=4184
To mark the 51st anniversary of the Communist Party of the Philippines, we’ll be watching “The Guerrilla Is a Poet” at our very first AfroSOC Movie Night! The movie shines a light on the story of Jose Maria Sison, his activism in the Philippines under martial law, and how he re-founded the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP). After the movie, we’ll have a critical analysis where we’ll reflect on this moment in Filipino history, and where the National Democratic movement is headed towards today.
