Dekada '80 Boks Reunion at 70s Bistro

Friends and comrades, activists from the 1980s (and other decades), reunited at Bistro 70s on 14 December 2012, to renew friendships, remember times spent together, discuss current events, and talk about future possibilities for the Philippines. There was good music from Sazi Cosino, Mel Soto, Arnel Torres, Joel Alcover, Jes Bartolome, Nitoy Adriano, Ernie de la Cruz, Bong Ramilo, Luna, and Repubika De Lata. Elmer Mercado, with Susan Warren-Mercado, made a rare and much-appreciated appearance. The event was a success, thanks to organizers led by Mel "Reunion Queen" Soto and Sazi Cosino, and others. Suggestions for the 2013 reunion include holding it on November 30th, birthdate of Andres Bonifacio and anniversary of the founding of Kabataang Makabayan.

ML@40 Concert: Remembering the Struggle and its Songs

The ML@40 concert remembered Martial Law, forty years after its declaration, on 21 September 2012, at the AS Lobby, CSSP, UP Diliman. The concert remembers the Martial Law period through the enduring power of songs that the people keep in their hearts and minds. It reminded us to guard against and fight the forces that brought about Martial Law 40 years ago, and that we must continue to sing as we fight.
