Statement of Kilusang Mayo Uno on the massacre of striking miners in South Africa
The Kilusang Mayo Uno strongly condemns the massacre of the striking workers of Lonmin Platinum Mine, which killed 34 people and wounded 70 others. We join the families of those killed in mourning and in demanding justice.
Marking two months of the Supreme Court’s decision ordering the distribution of Hacienda Luisita’s lands to farmers, labor center Kilusang Mayo Uno picketed the main office of the Department of Agrarian Reform in Quezon City to call for the immediate implementation of the High Court’s decision.
Joining protests in Mendiola and the US Embassy in time for the 114th year of the Declaration of Philippine Independence today and the 24th year of the government’s agrarian reform program last June 10, labor center Kilusang Mayo Uno condemned Pres. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III for making the country’s independence and land reform even more fake.
[A day after Corona conviction] Workers, other sectors call for Arroyo conviction, Luisita distribution
One day after Chief Justice Renato Corona was convicted by the Senate impeachment court, labor center Kilusang Mayo Uno and other progressive sectoral organizations marched today to Mendiola to voice their demands in the wake of the impeachment trial.
We have been expecting that the Senate impeachment court will decide to convict Chief Justice Renato Corona. Pres. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III has used all the powers of the government to achieve this end: from railroading the impeachment complaint in Congress to waging an all-out propaganda war.
