“A disgusting display of elite unity behind an architect of Martial Law and his lies.”
This was how labor center Kilusang Mayo Uno described today the presence of the country’s political and economic elite led by Pres. Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” Aquino III in the launching of Senate Pres. Juan Ponce Enrile’s memoirs last Friday.
We in labor center Kilusang Mayo Uno are glad that the Antipolo Regional Trial Court Branch 98 has issued warrants of arrest against the 13 suspects in the torture and murder of our leader Rolando Olalia and his aide Leonor Alay-ay more than 25 years ago. We will push for the prosecution and jailing of those responsible for the torture and death of our comrades.
Labor center Kilusang Mayo Uno lambasted today Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile’s push for a Charter change to do away with the 1987 Constitution’s restrictions on foreign ownership of businesses, saying this will not solve the chronic unemployment and poverty in the country.
