Labor Day Demonstrations

May 1 or Labor Day in the Philippines is usually celebrated with demonstrations from different groups. Jeepney drivers, workers, women and even students amass to air their grievances and requests to the current administration. Most of the time these demonstrations are held in Mendiola which is also one of the main gates when going to the Malacanang Palace.

I always see the May 1 demonstrations in TV and for this year I have decided that it is high time to see it, photograph it and experience it for myself and here is what I saw.

P.S. Good thing I have some plastic bags that I was able to use to cover my camera and shoot while it was raining.
