To Mindinao With Love 2

no 377We spotlight how the tragic suicide of a young Dalit student and activist, Rohith Vemula, has catalyzed mass mobilizing across university campuses in India against heinous caste-based discrimination that continues to be a disturbing feature of Indian society.

We also look at a recent court ruling in India that brings the country one step closer to finally overturning section 377 law of the Indian penal code that criminalizes homosexual acts.

Finally, we feature a Valentine’s Day event produced by Salugpongan International that spotlights issues in Southern Mindanao: To Mindinao with Love 2! Rachel Lastimosa, Nomi de Mira, and Bernardo Josue talk about what’s going on in the Philippines and what this fundraiser/celebration of resistance will entail.
