‘Finish Bonifacio’s battle’

About a thousand militants from different groups opposing the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte, marched on the streets of Bacolod City and staged protests on the 155th birth anniversary of Andres Bonifacio yesterday, while a group supporting the president also staged one at the Bacolod public plaza.

Members of the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan and their allied groups, some of whom wore buri hats bearing the “KKK” sign, gathered at the welcome marker at Araneta-Gonzaga streets.

“We are calling for the revolution of Bonifacio to continue because it only wanted the Philippines to be free from foreigners, which we have not yet achieved,” Bayan-Negros secretary general Michael Dela Concepcion, said yesterday. moremoremore

Issue land reform
EO, Duterte urged

A labor group in Negros Occidental is urging President Rodrigo Duterte to issue an executive order immediately if he is serious about his proposal to place Negros under land reform.

Partido Manggagawa secretary-general Priscilla Goco said yesterday that they are for placing Negros under land reform again since almost 70 percent of the covered areas have technical errors that delay their distribution to beneficiaries.

However, Goco said the president is not firm on his stand as it may just be one of his "false promises". moremoremore
