“Only through militant struggle can the best in youth shall emerge.”Jose Maria Sison, “Youth on the March,” 1968
Anakbayan San Jose is a grassroots National Democratic mass organization comprising of Working and Student youth based in San Jose, California.
Anakbayan holds that the Philippines is neither truly free nor democratic. Under the control of US and Chinese imperialism, local landlords, comprador capitalists, and corrupt government officials, the Filipino people continue to suffer.
The National Democratic struggle seeks to put an end to the 3 basic problems of Imperialism, Feudalism, and Bureaucrat Capitalism that plague Philippine society and to advance the movement for national liberation of the country, and the realization of the democratic rights of the people.
