Filipino-American Boycott of Pechanga Temporarily Lifted

MABUHAY Radio supports the Pechanga people that have been disenfranchised by the Pechanga Tribal Council. They have been boycotting Pechanga since early this year and will only LIFT the boycott for ONE day. Thank you to the Filipino people who support this action.

An ongoing boycott of the Pechanga Resort and Casino will be lifted by the Filipino-American sanction organizers, as initiated by the The one-day lifting is due to the performance at Pechanga by some Filipino and Filipino-American entertainers. The boycott is the result of the continuing discrimination being practiced by the current leaders of the Pechanga Tribe on some tribal members whom they ousted from the community on flimsy grounds.

The has joined the boycott of the Pechanga Resort-Casino and continues to urge all its readers and the Filipino-American community to boycott the said resort. This website fought very hard against the propositions that were sponsored by the Pechanga and three other Indian casinos, as described in these articles, Please Vote “No” on Propositions 94, 95, 96 and 97 and Media Breakfast Club Follows MabuhayRadio and Endorses the “No” Votes on Props. 94, 95, 96 and 97

The boycott continues after the show on February 21. In fact, the will undertake a more-energized boycott of the Pechanga Resort and Casino until and unless the tribal leaders will take back the ousted members of the tribe and restore their civil rights. The staff compares the immoral and illegal action of the Pechanga tribal leaders not only to the infamous violations of civil rights in history but also as the “equivalent of ethnic-cleansing abomination.” More data about the Pechanga “ethnic cleansing” are found in this website, and/or http://originalpechanga/
