Date: February 25, 2022, 4:00 PM, Friday, Hawai’i time (February 26, 2022, 10:00 AM, Philippine time)
Hosts: Coalition of organizations in Hawai’i
About this Forum: Five speakers will share eyewitness accounts of what happened on that fateful day in February 1986 – its basis, and repercussions.
“The dictator who was ousted from that struggle, together with his family, was exiled in Hawai’i. The son of the former dictator is now running for the highest political position in the Philippines. A generation seems unaware or are misinformed about the events of the past. The forum will also recall the aftermath of that exile—from the extent of the plunder that they brought with them to Hawai’i and the results of the human rights violations filed against them in the US courts, to the $2 billion judgements imposed by the courts which have not yet been settled.”
