Please come and cover the event on Friday, October 17 to commemorate the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. GCAP Philippines will have two simultaneous events, the Poverty Video Launch and Anti-Poverty Jam. This is also a contribution to aksyon/2015, a global campaign movement that seeks to see “concrete action and ambitious agreements to tackle the root causes of inequality, injustice, poverty, and climate change in 2015.”

The Forum and Launch of the Poverty Video (Kwentong P53: Kwentang Kapos?) produced by GCAP Philippines will happen at 1:00-3:00pm at Bacolod Chicken Inasal in Quezon City Memorial Circle. Cover our discussion on Poverty with invited guests from NEDA (Mr Ramon Falcon, Chief Social Development Specialist), NAPC (Usec Esguerra and office of Sec Rocamora) and civil society organisations (PRRM, SPELL, Kasama Pilipinas, Aktib, ANGOC, ASSALAM Bangsamoro, Social Watch Philippines, AnthroWatch). We also expect that Mayor Herbert Bautista will give the Welcome Remarks.

In the evening, let us have a night of music and camaraderie at the Anti-Poverty Jam from 5:00-10:00pm at Perlie’s Garden and Restaurant at the Elliptical Road (between the National Kidney and Transplant Institute and the Lung Center of the Philippines). Entrance is free!

We will also have a Photo Exhibit on Poverty during these events.
