The reasons behind my expulsion from Seoul G20

Paul Quintos is the international policy officer of the Filipino think-tank the IBON Foundation. He and at least seven other activists from the Philippines were detained and deported by immigration officials at Seoul Incheon Airport prior to the start of the Seoul G20 conference. This is the address he sent after his expulsion to delegates who were attending an IBON-sponsored conference on Charting Alternatives for the Global Economy

First of all, I would like to express my deep regret that I am unable to join you today in Korea.

The Philippine elections: People power rising in Payatas

Photo: Joseph Smooke.

Along the winding pathways in Payatas, a major urban-poor community on Manila's outskirts, election signs are plastered to the walls of makeshift homes, electricity wires rest in ruff hanging bundles, weaving down a steep hill, looking out towards the gleaming office towers of downtown Manila.

Photographer Stefan Christoff had an impoverished Philippines in his sights in a trip during its 2007 national election. The photos are being shown in an exhibit in Montreal until the end of February.

Wispy clouds intersect with urban infrastructure during the last moments of a sunset in Manila, the capital of the Philippines. Indigenous political party signs posted on rooftops. A makeshift squatter's house isolated in an expanse of garbage, one of innumerable brutal conclusions of an ongoing history of neo-colonial relations. A girl, maybe five years old, trying to smile for the camera as her family collects this garbage for their livelihood.
