2020 PSONA

Every year, the President of the Philippines fails to address the worsening conditions and the people’s needs. When they fail to acknowledge the calls of the people, we will speak up.
Rodrigo Duterte’s 5th State of the Nation Address (SONA) will be held on July 27. This will take place in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the worst economic crisis in history, and the fascist repression of the people under a de-facto martial rule. In the face of the unparalleled severity of this crisis, let us mobilize the largest and broadest front for the day of the SONA. Let us make this a Day of Reckoning, a Day of Judgement against the US-Duterte regime.
SONA ng Bayan, or People’s SONA, is part of a coordinated campaign organized by BAYAN Canada with activities happening across Canada. We will feature speakers representing different sectors overseas, as well as solidarity speakers.
Join the ND movement! Junk U.S.-Duterte’s Terror Law! Oust Duterte!
