From Haiyan to Katrina to Sandy: Man-made Natural Disasters & People’s Resistance

In commemoration of Typhoon Haiyan’s 2nd Anniversary and Hurricane Sandy’s 3rd Anniversary, join us for this joint report back and discussion that links and raises the issues surrounding man-made natural disasters from the Philippines to New Orleans to New York City!

You will hear and see report backs from organizers who have traveled to the Philippines and New Orleans, and were in New York City organizing around Hurricane Sandy:
Nina Macapinlac who went on the Kapit Bisig Kabataan Network Relief and Rebuild mission trip that spanned the length of the Philippines in August, Zakaria Kronemer who joined the Gulf South Rising Convergence in New Orleans for the 10 Year Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and Lilah Mejia from GOLES who experienced Sandy from the Lower East Side. 
They will share their experiences from their respective trips, as well as stories that they learned on-the-ground. 

After the multimedia presentations, there will be a round table discussion on the connections between international, domestic, and local “natural disasters” like Typhoon Haiyan, Hurricane Katrina, and Hurricane Sandy. 

What does genuine solidarity look like for communities that did not only suffer from the storm, but continue to suffer from the criminal neglect of the State, disaster capitalism, and imperialist plunder? 
What are People’s movements doing to fight back?

Join us for this lively discussion at Mayday Space! Food and refreshments will be provided!
