MANILA — Nationalist workers led by national labor center Kilusang Mayo Uno assembled in front of working-class hero Andres Bonifacio’s monument in Liwasang Bonifacio last Saturday (November 7) to show their opposition to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Economic Leaders’ Meeting set to be held in the country starting Nov 19.

They said APEC only worsened joblessness in the country, instigated lower wages and precarious contractual employment. They said contrary to its promise of bringing development to the country, APEC has only caused greater poverty, hunger and suffering among many Filipinos.

They vowed to hold protests during the APEC Economic Leaders Meeting.
