Free download of the edited collection, "This Is Not an Atlas: A Global Collection of Counter-Cartographies." 

"Counter-Mapping for Resistance and Solidarity in the Philippines: Between Art, Pedagogy and Community" is found on pages 144-151. The chapter was a collaborative writing project among Pinoy geographers and artists (three UPD Geography alumni, two current UPD Geograpy faculty). Several featured activities were collaborative projects involving the Department of Geography and the Junior Philippine Geographical Society-UP Diliman (JPGS-UPD).

THIS IS NOT AN ATLAS gathers more than 40 counter-cartographies from all over the world. This collection shows how maps are created and transformed as a part of political struggle, for critical research or in art and education: from indigenous territories in the Amazon to the anti-eviction movement in San Francisco; from defending commons in Mexico to mapping refugee camps with balloons in Lebanon; from slums in Nairobi to squats in Berlin; from supporting communities in the Philippines to reporting sexual harassment in Cairo. 

This Is Not an Atlas seeks to inspire, to document the underrepresented, and to be a useful companion when becoming a counter-cartographer yourself.
