Living Elsewhere Part 1
For International Refugee Week and Day, the New York/New Jersey Chapter of AF3IRM began a series on transnational women who have been historically forced out of their home territories by armed conflict, Occupation, land grabbing, and other methods used by settler colonialism. Living Elsewhere Part 1 highlights a conversation between Samira Gutoc of Marawi, Philippines, Suzanne Adely and DJ Fatin of Al-Awda, and Riham Majeed of AF3IRM NYC. Samira Gutoc works with AkoBakwit (I Evacuee), which supports the residents of Marawi City who have been driven out by the raze-to-ground bombing perpetrated by the Philippine Duterte government. Suzanne Adely, from Jordan, is the president-elect of the National Lawyers Guild. DJ Fatin Jarara is one of very few female DJs in New York City. Both Ms. Gutoc and Ms. Jarara were born in Saudi Arabia while AF3IRM’s Riham was born in the United States. The four women bring to this conversation a seamless and yet each uniquely her own perspective to the issue of dispersal, settler colonialism, and imperialism. Living Elsewhere, the Series, is a continuing exploration of what being driven/taken out of one’s homeland means, and the measures undertaken to maintain a semblance of historical continuity, of connection to the homeland. Keeping a culture alive and evolving in its relevance to the generations that will come afterward is one of the tough missions of those compelled to live outside their home territory. Other podcasts of people who have endured dislocation, displacement and dispersal are scheduled and will be announced. The series is the creation of AF3IRM National Education Director Olivia Canlas, AF3IRM Transnational Committee lead Ninotchka Rosca, with the assistance of AF3IRM NY/NJ chapter.

She served in the legislative assembly of the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao. In 2016, President Duterte appointed her to the Bangsamoro Transition Commission, Women’s Sector, which was involved in drafting the Bangsamoro Basic Law, bangsa meaning nation/people and moro derived from the Spanish term for Moors. It was a short-term appointment. Ms. Gutoc resigned following the declaration of martial law in Mindanao and President Duterte’s instructions to the soldiers not to worry about committing human rights abuses, adding “if you rape three, it’s on me.” Fatin Jarara is a first generation Palestinian immigrant born in Saudi Arabia, raised in Brooklyn. She has been a member of Al-Awda NY and an organizer for Palestine since she was in grade school, and continues to organize with Al-Awda NY and other Palestine-focused groups . Fatin graduated from Brooklyn College with a degree in Linguistics and currently works in Education. She also has been serving her community as a freelance DJ since 2008. Suzanne Adely is a Human Rights Lawyer, Labor and Arab Community Organizer, whose family is from Jordan.

Rebroadcast: Revolutionary Survival in the Time of Covid-19, recorded May 2020
Revolutionary Survival in the Time of Covid-19 was originally hosted as a webinar and recorded in May of 2020. New York City was then the epicenter of pandemic in the United States, hospitals had limited capacity, and many people who fell ill with Covid-10 were turned away and forced to treat themselves at home. With the global rise of Covid-19 and questions around vaccine access equity, this workshop has been highly requested. Sockie Marie Laya Smith is a Queens, New York based Covid-19 survivor, an underground organizer who mobilized against the Marcos dictatorship in the Philippines, and an AF3IRM supporter, facilitator and trainer. With AF3IRM NYC she is a Summer School of Women’s Activism facilitator, grounding guide, and heal through struggle trainer who draws from her decades long work-- as a nurse, as an activist, as a Reiki master and Theta healing practitioner-- to challenge capitalist notions of self-care. Sockie shares her strategies of surviving Covid-19 and as a healing practitioner, will discuss what it means to create longer term survival programs that revolutionize our building a more healthy and just feminist world.
