We are living in a system that is not built for us people of color. We believe in armed struggle, “by all means necessary,” to protect life. This piece is a tribute to the working class who toil for survival, to our fallen youth who have lost their lives because of the system, to the womxn who are exploited, commodified and violated, and to our community who have suffered through generations of colonial trauma. This is for our collective healing!

Taming shield is a large, round wooden Moro shield. The front is decorated with rings of black and of elaborate carving while the back has a hand hold through which the left arm is slipped so that the hand grasps the top of the second opening. This shield is used in warfare to deflect spears and arrows. This style of shield is also commonly used by the neighboring Moro groups, and may have been borrow from them. When not in use, the shield is slipped over the shoulder using a rattan band attached to the back. Certain charmed roots and plants are often attached to the shields, in the belief that they will ward off danger.

All proceeds will go to the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines to help relieve the Cotabato farmers.
“Diwang Kabataan expresses our anger and deep sadness at the Kidapawan Massacre. We condemn the lack of actions of the local government that resulted in the massacre. The actions of the Philippine National Police and the local government are unacceptable and should be held accountable.
As Filipino youth in the US, we recognize how the history of farm workers goes beyond what has taken place in Cotabato. The unfair and unjust treatment of farm workers in the Philippines parallels with the struggles of the Delano Manongs in California. We have not forgotten the tragedies of the Mendiola and Hacienda Luisita Massacres in the Philippines. The farmers still have not received justice.
Our hearts are with the families of the three slain farmers and all the victims of this tragic event. Diwang Kabataan will continue to demand that every person has access to their basic human rights.”
