Workers protest, not a criminal act, Endo is!

Norma Tuñag, administrator ng Cavite ecozone, ang marahas na pag-atake sa mapayapang welga ng mga kababaihang manggagawa.

UNION’s, make it possible!

Now, forward ever and with abounding experiences learned from the tumultuous last decade, BWI goes headstrong to engage the coming challenges that will come its way.

Advance People’s Agenda, Not Dictatorship!

Our social movements, organized along class and sectoral lines, are at the forefront of the people’s struggles. We shall continue to persevere, persist, resist, educate, and organize. We will forge solidarity with other progressive groups and forces. Our unity is an imperative response to the growing authoritarianism of our time.

Joaquin Garcia: “A score of our members in the Union died in the picket line. Perhaps they might still be alive if they were not terminated. Why? When we were still working in PAL, you’ll just have to go to the clinic when you feel something and you’ll be attended to. Now what? How can we have proper check-up when we do not even have a single penny to buy candies? So you tell me… This is distressing.”

Workers: Defend Public Services and Reject RCEP!

We demand that the RCEP negotiations be halted until the text is made public and discussed in parliament and in tripartite bodies in our respective countries. We reaffirm and support the call of ASEAN Parliamentarians for a thorough cost-benefit assessment of RCEP as well as a human rights impact assessment. We demand that submissions from the trade union movement and other people’s organizations, based on a careful examination of the proposition on the table be taken as part of the negotiation process.

SENTRO statement for May 1

Truth is, the Duterte regime is only consistent in one thing: it wants to kill, and the freedom to kill who it wants to kill. The spate of extrajudicial killings occurring all over the country—ostensibly sponsored and abetted by the Philippine National Police’s Oplan Tokhang and Oplan Double Barrel—has claimed anywhere between 8,000 to 10,000 lives already. This has worsened the situation of poor women, leaving them in trauma, isolation and greater vulnerability to further abuse such as prostitution. In addition to this, the Philippine Congress reintroduces the death penalty, and was passed by the House of Representatives last March 7, 2017, awaiting advancement in the Philippine Senate—despite the Philippines’ international commitment to treaties not to do so. Another legislative bill intends to lower the minimum age of criminal liability to nine (9) years of age, pushing back the victory in the past of children’s rights groups.

Sa likod ng “Welcome to Jollibee!”

Respect – isang maikling panawagan na may mabigat na dalang pag-asa. Kung tutuusin, payak lang naman ang hiling ng mga fastfood workers. Sa kabila ng pang-aabusong natatanggap, dagdagan pa ng hindi magandang pagtrato sa kanila kung minsan, nananatili silang nakangiti at bumabati sa lahat ng papasok at palabas sa lugar na humihila sa kanila sa kumunoy ng kahirapan. At sa ugali nilang ito, dapat lang na ibigay ang panawagang mabigyang karapatan at respeto sila – bilang mga marangal na empleyado at higit sa lahat – bilang tao.

Wala tayong maaasahang manunubos, kaya’t ang ating kaligtasa’y nasa ating pagkilos!

We call on the working people to continue the struggle against contractualization and the precariousness of living sustained by the Duterte regime’s neo-liberal policies by asserting their basic right to a law-abiding, dignified and genuinely safe society—not the selective security of the privileged that preys on the massacre of the poor.
