Unionists have defended their protest camp from at least four instances of forced demolition while in Manila.
‘Pres. Duterte and FM Kono did not discuss their accountability and Japanese fruit company Sumifru in the violation of workers’ rights.’
“Time and again, they have tried to break us but they failed.
“The illegal lockout and dismissal affecting packing plant 90 workers this month is clearly an act of retaliation by Sumifru and a violation of the April 22 settlement.”
“This victory is a lesson to Sumifru and all capitalists that you cannot impose exploitative and unjust policies on your workers without facing resistance.”
