I have been browsing through the internet for Philippine anti-racism NGOs that I might be able to approach for assistance with our problem. I chanced upon your blog during my search.
My wife & I were victims of anti-racism remarks by a Filipino-American preacher in Baguio City. I am a Filipino-Chinese born in the Philippines. This Pastor shouted “…GO BACK WHERE YOU BELONG…” to me during an argument with him & his people.
He also called my wife “GAGO” and “STUPID” in front of his people & our staff at our village. I guess this will be of interest to Women’s Groups in the Philippines. My problem is I cannot locate any groups that I can contact for help. I realize that your blog Anti Racism Movement (ARM) tackles issues pertaining to racism in Lebanon.
While it may seem strange that I am contacting you for help, perhaps you may know of groups in the Philippines that you might refer to me to contact. Thank you for your time.
