Workers led by labor center Kilusang Mayo Uno joined the protest against the Cybercrime Law in front of the Supreme Court in Manila today, saying it stands by the right of workers and ordinary people to free expression through the Internet.
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.
We condemn in the strongest terms the continued harassment and illegal arrests of farm workers of Hacienda Luisita. Once again, the Aquino-Cojuangco clan has shamelessly used the state’s police and military forces to violently attack farmers.
“We point our fingers at Pres. Aquino, who is using the government to uphold his family’s interests in Luisita and harass farm workers fighting for the land that rightfully belongs to them.”
Junk the Cojuangco-Aquino motion for reconsideration! Free and unconditional distribution of lands to Hacienda Luisita farmers – now!
Today, three months after the Supreme Court released its decision to distribute the lands of Hacienda Luisita to farm workers, we march to call on the Supreme Court as a collegial body: Junk the Cojuangco-Aquino family’s motion for reconsideration! Implement the free and unconditional distribution of Luisita’s lands to farmers – now!
