YOUTH RALLY VS. ENDO
TODAY, 30 APRIL 4:00 PM
Some 100 members of PM-Kabataan, the youth wing of the militant Partido Manggagawa, will hold a rally this afternoon to highlight the pressing issues of recent graduates and young workers.
PMK will call for the abolition of contractualization, decent jobs for new graduates and living wage for young workers. The youth group is challenging the Duterte administration to make good on the "change is coming" promise by urgent action on the problems of endo jobs, youth unemployment and low wages. Recent surveys affirm that jobs, wages and prices are the utmost concerns of Filipinos.
After the rally, the PMK members will march to the nearby Holy Trinity Parish in Balic, Balic, Manila for an evening program and spend the night at the church grounds. They will participate in the big Labor Day rally led by the Nagkaisa labor coalition and be the earliest contingent at Welcome Rotonda on May 1.
Tomorrow, on Labor Day:
7:00 am PM-Kabataan at Welcome Rotonda
8:00 am Nagkaisa assembly along Espana
9:00 am March to Mendiola for a program until noon
