P S N A Philippines Solidarity Network of Aotearoa
NOTE FROM THE EDITOR
Philippine Solidarity Network of Aotearoa published our newsletter Kapatiran from 1993-2009 inclusive. But we have not managed to publish an issue since 2009; so in January 2012, we formally decided to cease publishing it (primarily because of the Editor's lack of time due to other commitments. That is the same reason why we also cannot commit to publish it as an online-only newsletter).
We had fully intedned to publsih another issue (which would have been number 33) and had gathered a respectable amount of copy for it. When we faced up to the reality that it was not going to happen, and that Kapatiran was going to cease publication, we decided not to see that copy go to waste, so we have uploaded it as The Issue That Never Was (which is obviously incomplete).
The Philippines Solidarity Network of Aotearoa (PSNA) produced a newsletter, Kapatiran (Solidarity), from 1993 until 2009. Kapatiran specialised in topics such as:
We have reprinted
speeches, conference papers and interviews. Our priority
was to make it relevant to New Zealanders. We report on
the visits to the Philippines of New Zealand
progressives, plus we have published indepth reports of
the several New Zealand speaking tours that PSNA has
organised, by leaders of the Filipino movement. We
focused on subjects like the impact of transnational
corporate globalisation and its institutions, such as
APEC and the WTO, on both societies. Always we aimed to
highlight what our two societies have in common.
