AIPP Book on Cordillera Heroes Launched
“Fifty years of the Cordillera people’s struggle come alive in the pages of this book. The sacrifices and great examples of our Cordillera heroes are our inspiration, as we pursue the continuing people’s movement for land, life, self determination, and the common good.” This blurb captured what the book Cordillera Heroes stands for. Published by the Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP), the book contains life stories of 23 men and women in the Cordillera region, Philippines who gave up their lives in the pursuit of social justice.
CORDILLERA HEROES. Jill Cariño, convenor of the Philipine Task Force for Indigenous Peoples' Rights and co-editor of the book Cordillera Heroes, presents the book as the story of the "Cordillera mass movement."
