MakibekiNYC 3 Dance Fundraiser
Fundraiser for ongoing support of the MakibekiNYC3!
The MakibekiNYC3 are three queer, trans and femme activists who faced police brutality at the hands of the New York Police Department (NYPD) and Diplomatic Security Service (DSS). They were among the hundreds of activists who boldly protested the U.S. visit of Ferdinand Marcos Jr., a corrupt and fascist criminal whose family stole $10 billion from the Filipino people and committed gross human rights violations, including extrajudicial killings, disappearances, torture and rape.
The MakibekiNYC3 were detained, and slapped with trumped up charges. While they have since been released and are seeking for the charges to be dropped, they will need ongoing support to cover legal fees, medical expenses and any loss of income. Proceeds will go to the MakibekiNYC3 Legal Fund under BAYAN USA.
