Kalikasan Solidarity Organization is an environmental justice organization fighting in solidarity with the Filipino people in their struggle for land, self-determination, and freedom from foreign domination. Like 350PDX, they are also a member organization of the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines (ICHRP), a global network of organizations concerned about the human rights situation in the Philippines and committed to campaigning for just and lasting peace in the country. This November, KSO has the opportunity to attend ICHRP’s 4th General Assembly and “Peace We Want” Conference in Bangkok, Thailand, and are hoping to send 7 members to this critical event. Sharing space with other ICHRP members from all over the globe and with organizers waging the struggle on the ground in the Philippines will be critical to KSO’s ability to effectively participate in this movement.
A few who are committed to traveling to Bangkok cannot independently afford the costs of the plane tickets, passport fees, and conference registration fee. To collectively overcome this barrier for low-income members, they are asking for support. You can donate at this GoFundMe or on venmo @kalikasan-sol_org with a note about the donation. Thank you!
