1Sambayan NSW Australia has been formally launched in the afternoon of 29 May 2021 at the Mt Druitt Hub, Ayers Grove, Mount Druitt.
The meeting was well attended by the Filipino-Australian communities from various suburbs and community groups in New South Wales. Officers and members of the two peak community councils whose members are civic, community, professionals and social groups were in attendance.
Cause oriented and religious groups such as Couples for Christ, Chaplaincy, Gabriela NSW, Movement Against Tyranny (MAT), humble teachers, senior citizens, unionists, as well as Ugnay Kabayan Inc. attended from different suburbs and regions of New South Wales.
1Sambayan area coordinators were identified and designated to organise series of community forums (Townhall Talakayan) to spearhead the campaign “to educate and unify the Filipino-Australian communities to support, to be involved and to act to prevent an authoritarian government from taking hold in the Philippines in the Election 2022”.
Official Convenor of 1Sambayan Australia, Delia Del Rosario states, “We are the majority, we have to act if we all, aim to install good governance, respect for human rights, to assert our rights on WPS and bring back honesty in the government.”
