MANILA – More than 400 members of people’s organizations from at least 40 countries gathered together to come up with common efforts in building a brighter future.

The Fourth International Assembly of the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS) formally opened today at the Ciudad Christia Resort in San Mateo, Rizal. With delegates representing more than 300 grassroots organizations from all continents, the assembly is the biggest since 2001. It will last until July 9.

The ILPS was founded in May 2001 at Zutphen, the Netherlands. With the theme, “Build a Bright Future! Mobilize the People to Resist Exploitation and Oppression Amidst the Protracted Global Depression, State Terrorism and Wars of Aggression!” the Fourth International Assembly coincides with the tenth year of the League.
