About Bandilang Itim

Proudly flying the black flag in the archipelago known as the Philippines are our next interviewees: Bandilang Itim. Aiming to be the banner that rallies together anarchists and libertarians in the region, this revolutionary anarchist publishing platform commits itself to producing original, well-informed content on local issues and events, and disseminating the writing and ideas of other anarchists and libertarians from the area and its diaspora. Be sure to check out their very professional pamphlets and zines, and follow them on Twitter to hear about their new events. In this interview, we ask their members what they wish to achieve, how they organize themselves, and how they deal with the struggles they face in the Philippines.

As anarchist, autonomous, and anti-authoritarian collectives in the archipelago, we declare our opposition the Anti-Terrorism Act recently railroaded in Congress. The Anti-Terrorism Act has already been passed in the Senate with only two votes in opposition and was also adopted on the committee level in Congress. Since both versions are now identical, the Anti-Terrorism Act will not require a bicameral conference to be voted upon—this means that once the Anti-Terrorism Act is passed in Congress, it will directly be forwarded to the Office of the President to be signed. The way the Anti-Terrorism Act was deliberated is highly suspicious. Debate and interpolation in Congress was held during a pandemic, a time when the publ... (From : TheAnarchistLibrary.org.)
Silence is not golden Some among us in Bandilang Itim are men who are cisgender and/or heterosexual. As cis/het men in Bandilang Itim who are raised with the privilege of being men, we are not experts on gender or queer issues nor have experience as women or queer. This ought not mean we stay silent on the issues that confront our sisters and queer siblings. As Adrienne Onday declares in her important piece, “Wrath Over Pride: A call-out post to ‘radical’ cis (het) men and their inadequacy in gender struggles,” “[Y]our silence is violence to us.” Our silence is violence to those struggling against gender-based oppression. We have people we love—partners, family, comrades, and friends—wh... (From : TheAnarchistLibrary.org.)
Two Days from World Press Freedom Day Two days after celebrating World Press Freedom Day the Philippine government in the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) ordered the broadcast network ABS-CBN to cease and desist their broadcasting operations.[1] The NTC ordered this because the legislative franchise that allows ABS-CBN to operate expired on May 4, 2020. Included in the cease-and-desist order are 42 television stations and 23 radio stations that are operated by the media conglomerate.[2] Normally congress would renew such franchises before their expiry as it had done so in the past, but President Rodrigo Duterte has had a tirade against the ABS-CBN network since becoming president, accusing the network of “swindling...

We at Bandilang Itim stand in support with the student organizations from the De La Salle University,[1] and the University of the Philippines.[2][3] In these trying times, university institutions must adapt to the so-called “new normal” in a way that accommodates their students. This means accounting for the students’ varying conditions. Some students may be under financial or emotional stress due to the Extended Community Quarantine (ECQ). Others lack access to reliable internet connectivity to continue with online classes and securing one may become yet another financial burden. Staying at home — let alone one with stable internet and a conducive learning environment — are privileges that not everyone... (From : TheAnarchistLibrary.org.)
