About

BAYAN Canada was launched on September 21, 2008 to mark the 36th anniversary of the martial law imposed by the Marcos dictatorship in the Philippines.  At the time, the organizers of BAYAN Canada wanted to make the link between the US-Marcos fascist regime and the US backed Arroyo regime scheming to stay in power while perpetrating some of the worst human rights violations in Philippine history.

The aim of BAYAN Canada is to formally group together all progressive, anti-imperialist and democratic organizations of Filipinos living in Canada into a strong multisectoral alliance. The goal is to become an official overseas chapter of BAYAN in the Philippines – only the second of its kind.

The September 21st assembly affirmed the BAYAN Canada national organizing committee and its chairperson Dr. “Chandu” Claver and its work leading to the first congress of BAYAN Canada. BAYAN Canada is calling on all patriotic Filipino organizations in Canada to join in advancing the Filipino people’s movement for national liberation and democracy.
