T he Justice for Filipino-American Veterans (JFAV) and different community organizations, students, and allied groups are all set for the 11th Annual Veterans Day “March for Equity, Justice and Peace” in Los Angeles on Friday, November 11, 2011.


For the first time, the Filipino-American contingents will march on the city’s main streets. The protest march will start at 11:30 a.m. at the Downtown LA intersection of Broadway/Olympic and end at the INS Federal Building, 300 N Los Angeles St., Los Angeles, CA 90012.


The main bulk of the marchers will be the youth and student component of JFAV that are advocating for their elderly seniors and veterans. They will carry the banners of anti-war, NO to Closure of Adult Day Care Centers, NO to budget cuts and PASS the DREAM ACT and Comprehensive Immigration Reform for 2012.


Pre-Rally Program


The JFAV forces will assemble and hold a pre-rally program starting at 8:00 a.m. at the Filipino American Community of Los Angeles (FACLA) 1740 W Temple St, Los Angeles, CA 90026.


Instead of the traditional commemoration of the Filipino-American community and its World War II veterans, JFAV will conduct seminars and teach in on the different issues that the community faces like immigration reform, closure of adult-day care centers in California, budget cuts, Filipino World War II veterans rights.
