Jonathan Indino started this petition to Barkada Wine Bar

Barkada Wine Bar in DC got backlash and were pressured to change their name because of accusation of cultural appropriation due to the word barkada being a Filipino word and the owners were not of Filipino descent.

The origin of the word is not Filipino, but we know that the use and meaning of the word is from the Filipino version of it.

We call to all Filipinos who are proud of their heritage and would like the torch of our values and culture to be brought forward, even if it's coming from other people who have seen our own culture as one to be emulated.

The owners were cornered to change their name, this petition is here to show support for the name to be kept as it is. Help us stop this non-sense and be extremely proud that there are those who have seen our culture and people and think what we do and who we are and see it as something to take pride in.

Let's include these foreigners to our BARKADA with our support!
