Robredo added that it is not enough just to recognize the importance and the contribution of labor to the growth and improvement of the economy.

In his speech at the People’s Park in Davao City, the president gives the ‘oligarchs’ a deadline to return government lands to the people. He threatens them that he would allow the Filipino people to take-over the government lands they illegally managed without paying taxes.
