SLAM APEC (Solidarity of Labor and Movements Against APEC) held its relaunch in Marikina City, Metro Manila, today. SLAM APEC traces its history to the labor movement’s resistance against neoliberal globalization peddled by APEC during its summit in the Philippine in 1996. Today, 19 years after, with another APEC summit, labor groups and other sectors are protesting the latest schemes this capitalist gathering will heap upon the workers and the Filipino people. Brace ourselves for new attacks by big corporations and imperialist powers against the workers and people in the 21 members states of APEC. Panibagong pahirap na naman ito!
