Not just about higher wages

Yes, instead of trooping to the cinemas to see Spider-Man 3 on its first official screening day, I went to Manila, together with some friends from UP and fellow members of Kabataan Party, to join the annual Labor Day celebration and protest of thousands of workers and activists. It was my first May 1 mobilization.

Marching under the scorching heat of the afternoon sun is torture. But all’s well in registration of one’s protest against a system that cares more for its capitalists and investors than and at the expense of its workers.
