Interview with Kathleen Gutierrez of Anakbayan East-Bay

What was your initial reaction when you went to the Philippines through an “organizer’s perspective”?

Well I actually first got involved into the national democratic movement in 2009 when I went to the Philippines for about half a year and integrated with the Gabriella women’s sector…

The last sentence says proletarian revolutionary. What does that mean to you?

When I think of proletarian revolutionary I think of activists and progressive-minded folks who are proletarian internally and externally in their actions… that we are in this constant state of a remolding-ness, where we understand that if we are going to change our surroundings, we want to see and live the quality of how we think, act, and treat one another.

First off I want to give a shout out to the Anakbayan East Bay Executive Committee that holds it down… and especially the ABEB Exposure team, they just went back this last December, they were joined by several solidarity allies. For me personally I would like to go back with that exposure team and to go back to the Philippines sometime this year again.
