BISIG warmly welcomes you to our website.

In the past 20 years, BISIG has been struggling and working for the establishment of a humane, just and democratic Philippine society. Our vision is for the Filipino people enjoy Filipino Socialism – a self-managing people’s socialim that is truly democratic and founded in Philippine context.

BISIG works with social movements and political parties, locally and internationally, to create a broad unity that will end the exploitation, oppression and alienation brought by the system of capitalist globalization to the workers and other marginalized classes and sectors .

Onward with the struggle for socialism!
