To the people and freedom fighters in Metro Manila:
To the people and freedom fighters in Luzon:
To the people and freedom fighters in the Philippine Archipelago:
To the people and freedom fighters in the World:

This is the second communiqué from the A-Festa Coordinate Unit. We are a complex enterprise in which various people are involved, bringing together their contributions to form a unified resistance against all forms of authority and its commodity spectacle that it embodies.

Everyday, our life and the finite life of this planet are obviously under siege by Market Economy. And the imposed situation given to us by the powers-that-be has reduced our existence into a merchandised commodity available on television, glossy magazines and corporate sponsored cultural events, etc. Making us the perfect passive consumers for their products that were directly ripped off from the already devastated resources of the Earth.

We have to be in control of our lives.

So the intergalactic freedom fighters had a meeting and formed the second A-Festa Coordinate Unit. The aim is to hold simultaneous festivals, events and gatherings in various places of our archipelago to promote the coordinated acts of resistance this July prior to the State of the Nation Address (SONA). We are here to reclaim our state of being real, breathing, interspersed network of living beings. But we are concerned not with the coup d’etat [seizure of the state] of any hierarchical activist groups in the Philippines, but with the coup du monde [seizure of the world], a transition of necessity more complex, more diffuse than the other, and so more gradual, less spectacular. Our methods will vary with the empirical facts pertaining here and now, there and then.

That’s why we call on you, citizens of these mountains, land-grabbed plains, and slum areas, to take creative direct action to save this wonderful place from its hastening demise and to defend our existence. Coordinate your actions with A-Festa, we will celebrate life together in this rapturous anarchist festival ever.

We shall overcome the bastards!
We shall not give up!
