Anarchipelago Kollective is a group of multi-tendency leftists working in struggle against authoritarianism. Our story is that of unbelonging—though our origins are from the island nation-state known today as the Philippines, we are also moving through diaspora and displacement, through the white supremacist matrix of the United States, the rigid binaries of gender and sexuality, the space in between here and there. We have also come together out of shared frustration and disillusionment towards the hegemonic groups of the Philippine left.

If they punch downward, strike upwards.
