Filipino Workers to commemorate 2nd Anniversary of Saffron Revolution

About 50 members of Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilimpino (BMP), an active member of the Free Burma Coalition - Philippines (FBC-Phils) will hold a silent protest action tomorrow infront of the SPDC-Myanmar Embassy in Makati City in commemoration of the historic Saffron Revolution in Burma.

The group will light candles and will offer flowers for the "martyrs" of Saffron Revolution.

It will be remembered that thousands of monks, youth and students and other activists flooded the streets of Burma in 2007 to protest the aggravating economic and political conditions in Burma triggered by then series of fuel price increases in the said territory.
