Vice President of the Philippines Jejomar Binay puts on the charade that he supports Overseas Filipino Workers but his actions will speak louder than words as he proceeds to cross the picket line of the many Filipino workers at the LAX Hilton who have called for a boycott of the hotel for its exploitative working conditions and anti-union activities. On Saturday, June 2nd Binay will attend a Philippine “Independence” gala at the LAX Hilton, and SiGAw will be there to fight for the 99% by upholding workers rights and by exposing Binay for crossing the picket line. Binay shows he does not really care for our kababayan, otherwise he would uphold their right to unionize. Binay should also address the root problems of the Philippines, which cause the mass exodus of Filipinos from our homeland, and stop the Labor Export Policy, as well as the US-led Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement. Join us as we take on the 1% on June 2nd, 6pm at the LAX Hilton (5711 W. Century Blvd, LA 90045). Free 2 hour street parking available on 98th street (behind the Hilton).
On June 8th, SiGAw will protest Philippine President Benigno Aquino for trampling on our homeland’s sovereignty by continuing to allow US troops on our country’s soil and drones to fly overhead while allowing the endless bloodshed of our people at the hands of the Philippine military and mutli-national corporations. Come voice out against these injustices as we slam the door on Aquino on his first presidential visit to LA.
