In Celebration of International Labor Day 

Media Advisory:


May One 2009 Rally in Cavite and Batangas


Under the central slogan, “Labanan At Biguin Ang Panunupil Sa Karapatan At Kabuhayan, Makibaka Para Sa Pambansang Industriyalisasyon”, workers from Cavite and Batangas will press for wage hike, job security, job generation, immediate economic relief and the transformation of the national economic system to address and avert the onslaught of the chronic economic crisis engulfing the nation.


The May One rallies in Cavite and Batangas will be spearheaded by the Solidarity of Cavite Workers (SCW) and the Batangas Labor Alliance for Social Transformation (BLAST), respectively. They will be joined by other people’s organizations and concerned citizens.


The Cavite Rally will kick off from Love Memorial in Brgy. Salcedo II, Noveleta and Jolibee at Daang Amaya, Tanza at 7:00 AM. The two contingents will then march and converge in front of the Cavite Economic Zone in Rosario, Cavite at 9:00 AM.


The Batangas Rally will take off at 6:00 AM from the Tanauan Market and at 7:00 AM from the Sta. Clara Barangay Hall in Batangas City, merging at the Lipa City Market. The main progran will start around 10:00 am and would end at 1:00 pm.




Please be advised that should heavy rains continue tomorrow in Cavite, the assembly point will be moved to the Tejeros Convention in Rosario (near the Cavite Economic Zone) but the rally will proceed as planned.
