On March 8th, women all over the world will honor International Women's Day. In the Philippines, the US puppet president, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has done nothing to improve Filipino women's conditions in the Philippines and in the diaspora. The height of her political corruption has pushed thousands of Filipinos to call for her ouster. On March 8, FiRE joins the international demand to OUST GMA! We're getting FiREd up!
