Artists mark poet’s 3rd month in jail with “Haranang Bayan”

Renowned Filipino artists will figure in a series of events drumbeating the appeal for the immediate dropping of charges filed against poet and former UP activist Ericson Acosta who remains imprisoned at the Calbayog sub-provincial jail in Samar.

On the third month of Acosta in prison, screenwriter Bonifacio Ilagan and National Artist Bienvenido Lumbera will join other artists, Acosta’s family and former colleagues in reiterating the demand for his release in a cultural event dubbed “Haranang Bayan: Panata sa Kalayaan ni Ericson Acosta” sponsored by the Kilometer 64 Poetry Collective, Karatula, UP Alay Sining and the Free Ericson Acosta Campaign (FEAC).

“Haranang Bayan”, which will be held at the Ta(u)mbayan Bar in Kamuning, Quezon City will feature musical numbers, prose and poetry reading and other cultural presentations calling for Acosta’s prompt release. Performers will include Bobby Balingit, Axel Pinpin, Rommel Rodriguez, Gelacio Guillermo, Jess Santiago, Sinagbayan, Karl Ramirez, Danny Fabella, KARATULA, Sam Montuya, Bersus, Pia Montalban, Richard Gappi, Babez Alejo, MJ Rafal and Che Gitara.

“We demand the authorities to not prolong his illegal detention and to end this injustice now,” FEAC convenors said.

According to Acosta’s legal counsel Atty. Jun Oliva, the poet’s case is still before Gandara, Samar Regional Trial Court Branch 41 Public Prosecutor Agustin Avalon, information of which is still waiting to be filed in court.

Two more events have been set to follow the May 13 “Haranang Bayan” in order to raise legal defense funds for Acosta.

The FEAC has organized “Acosta Universe: Beatles Night for a Cause” where rock band The Jerks and other artists will be performing at My Brother’s Moustache, Sct. Madrinan, QC on May 26, eve of Acosta’s birthday.

Another fundraising concert organized by Acosta’s journalist father-in-law Pablo Tariman will be featuring classical chamber music with violinist Gina Medina and pianist Mary Anne Espina at the UP Diliman Balay Kalinaw on May 28.
