BAYAN organizer and leftist scholar Joaquin Uy will lead a Walking Tour of Filipinx History in Seattle in the International District. Uy’s tour will focus on local leaders, organizers, revolutionaries, authors, and martyrs from the Filipinx community and their relationship to this historic neighborhood, block by block, from the turn of the century to today. The tour provides an opportunity to learn about the current and critical movement to stop the killings in the Philippines (https://www.facebook.com/MalayaMovement/). We’ll meet at Eastern Hotel, 506 1/2 Maynard Ave S (Maynard & King) at 12:45am. The tour will begin at 1pm, SHARP!
