*Abstract*

With the re-ascendance of the Marcos family and the burial of former
president, Ferdinand Marcos, in the Libingan ng mga Bayani, the history of
martial law and anti-martial law activism has gained more national
attention. However, given the wealth of information on martial law--from
The Radical Papers at the University of the Philippines to the Presidential
Commission on Good Government--very few scholars have written about the
anti-Marcos movement in the United States. This movement brought Filipino,
Filipino-American, and non-Filipino activists together, rooted in the
National Democratic Movement, the student and anti-Vietnam War movement in
the United States, church-based activism, and human rights activism. In
this talk, the lecturer will argue that the diversity of the anti-Marcos
movement in the U.S. was its strength, and the process of crossing borders,
whether they were national, racial, or class borders, pushed activists to
create solidarities aimed at the liberation of oppressed people in both the
Philippines and the United States.
