Fighting from a Distance

This chapter focuses on the accomplishments of the Movement for a Free Philippines' (MFP) as it marked its tenth year in 1983. The movement had earned recognition from the various audiences they had targeted—the Filipino community, the U.S. Congress, the media. The Filipino community, by and large, looked to them as a more acceptable organization than the leftist opposition groups. The MFP's many appearances before House and Senate committees and its close ties with several legislators from both U.S. political parties had strengthened its access to Congress and gained it some influential advocates. It had established valuable contacts in the media by providing them with useful information on developing their stories.
