Presented by JULIET DE LIMA-SISON
The Center for Social Studies has been formed since 1991 as a center for research and training activists to counter the ideological, political, economic, cultural and military offensives of the US and its allies and puppets.
Under the direction of Prof. Jose Maria Sison, the Center has achieved a modest amount of success in organizing conferences and seminars to allow the representatives of progressive Filipino organizations to exchange ideas and experiences with the representatives of partner organizations in other countries.

Magandang hapon, mga kasama!
Thanks to the organizers for inviting me. I’m here to give a reaction about Joma’s new book “Building Strength Through Struggle”. The book has already been introduced so I’ll just dive in to talk about the most important parts and give some comments.

Ka Oris’ Video Testimonial

We are celebrating Ka Joma’s 55 years of service to the Filipino people together with his 75th birthday. He studied the revolutionary experience of the Filipino people against colonialism and imperialism and understood the revolutionary ideas of the working class as the guide to continuing and accomplishing the Philippine revolution. He became active in the people’s movement for national liberation and democracy in the late 1950s.

Dear comrades, friends and compatriot,
First of all, I thank the organizers and all of you for coming. I am overwhelmed and humbled by this celebration. I came to this event, thinking that I would sit back and enjoy myself most of the time. But Julie has made a proposal to further activate me in connection with the revitalization and expansion of the work of the Center for Social Studies. I am thus reminded that there is no sitting back and no retirement for revolutionaries.
Prof. Jose Maria Sison joins one billion women and men rising to end violence against women and girls, to demand justice for them, encourage the survivors to break the silence and release the stories of both pain and hope in various art forms.
