“Granting an employer award to ABS-CBN, a company that has contractualized its workforce and illegally terminated workers in order to bust the workers’ union, is simply insulting to the Filipino workers and people.”
“There’s one thing in common between this year’s SONA and wang-wang, its favorite object: they both send out too much noise.”
This was labor center Kilusang Mayo Uno’s reaction to Pres. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III’s State of the Nation Address this year, saying the speech failed to present the real situation of the Filipino workers and people and to push for much-needed reforms.
"An accomplishment report of many expose's against former Pres. Arroyo but without a concrete legal measure against her. Various anti-people policies sugar-coated with empty promises of development and change. These are what the Filipino workers and people expect from Pres. Aquino's second SONA."
“We give him a grade of '5,' bagsak. After more than a year, it is more than clear: The change and daang matuwid which Aquino promised are not for the hungry workers and people, but for the oil cartel, big foreign and local capitalists and the Kamag-anak, Inc.”
The Kilusang Mayo Uno (KMU), the Philippines‘ genuine, militant and progressive labor center, condemns the violent attacks in Oslo, Norway, and extends its deep condolences to the families and friends of the victims, as well as the Norwegian workers and people.

“Whether Pres. Aquino in his SONA makes a direct statement on the Hacienda Luisita issue or not, his speech will be judged as a statement on the issue.”
