The Malaya Movement is calling on all patriotic Filipinos and allies to organize protests everywhere this coming July 22nd, 2019 as a massive show of opposition against the dictator, Rodrigo Duterte and his regime as he deliver his 4th State of the Nation Address (SONA).
Tama na! Sobra na! People Power na!
National Day of Protest vs Duterte’s Dictatorship
This is our call to action! Let us join the rest of the Filipino people in saying enough is enough of the Duterte regime.
Let us rally everyone to hold large protests everywhere in the United States, especially in Washington D.C. to show our own United People’s SONA against Duterte’s move towards a full fledged dictatorship.
The Filipino people have suffered long enough under Duterte’s anti-people agenda, with the majority of the country and even overseas Filipinos being greatly affected by the TRAIN law of increased taxes and prices on basic commodities. The issue of human rights has caused international alarm at the number of extrajudicial killings in the drug war alone reaching to 30,000. With the recent midterm election results, the majority of the seats in the Senate now belong to politicians in the pocket of Duterte. We can only suspect that Duterte will now press forward with his agenda to change the Philippine constitution and bend it to his advantage, eliminating term limits, opening up the Philippines to further exploitation of the land and resources to foreign corporations, and giving himself dictatorial powers.
Philippine democracy is under attack by the fascist Duterte regime!
Thousands of people have already been killed, and many more will continue to be targeted under the Drug War.
Poverty is at an all time high, forcing 6,500 people to leave the country daily, and remittances mean less with the TRAIN Law.
Philippine sovereignty will be completely lost.
Let us come together as people united against the fascist Duterte regime to organize the largest national mobilization in the United States on July 22nd, 2019. More and more people are choosing to fight against the Duterte regime and its anti-people and anti-national policies and programs. We must show our full force as a united opposition and raise the international attention on the conditions of the Philippines!

Let us expose the connection of Duterte’s anti-poor and anti-worker policies such as contractualization, TRAIN law, etc to his repressive measure such as the ongoing Oplan Tokhang and crackdown on human rights defenders, activists, journalists, and others. We must also conduct a widespread education campaign on the dangers of Duterte’s push for charter change.
- UTILIZE different media and platforms for information and education dissemination. Be prompt in answering emerging issues, especially in the regime’s attempts to stop and derail People’s actions. Be proactive in exposing and responding to false news and lies of the regime’s propagandists.
