BMP-ST Press Statement on May 1

BMP-ST May 1 Press Statement

Motorcade for the Protection of Workers Against Global Crisis!

The Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino-Southern Tagalog will commemorate the” International Day of Solidarity of the Working Clas”s on May 1 to protest against the massive dislocation brought about by the Global Economic Crisis and to call on the government to give priorities to the plight of more than 40,000 displaced workers in CALABARZON.

The occasion will participated in by various unions and the newly organized CALABARZON Displaced Workers Association (CADIWA). The theme for this years’ May Day, “End the Clobal Crisis, Advance the Socialist Alternative”, will be highlighted by a motorcade of 500 vehicles from Calamba City to SM-Santa Rosa City.

According to BMP-ST Chairman Ronnie Luna, the motorcade aims to present to the masses the root cause of the cyclical crisis of capitalism and the socialist alternative in contrast to the Jobs Fair of the Pres. GMA which they criticize as a mere pogi points to cover-up its indifference to the workers and its flawed economic policies in pursuit of globalization.

In addition to this, the BMP-ST raises their immediate demands for the protection of workers against the worsening crisis, such as (1) the nationalization of strategic industries and service (banking and finance, energy, education, food and, housing),(2) Genuine land reform and agricultural support for the peasants (3) Grant minimum wage subsidy to displaced workers, (4) Legislation of Unemployment Insurance, (5) Broaden Social Securities, (6) Moratorium on payments of SSS loans and housing amortization of displaced workers, (7) Suspend the Automatic Appropriation Law and utilize the funds for generation of new employment and livelihood of displace workers.

The BMP-ST call on all workers, urban poor and peasants to seize the historical opportunity unlocked by the global financial crisis --- the reality that the capitalist system is bankrupt and the time is ripe to advance the struggle for socialist alternative.
