Quotes

..."More than thirty years into the Communist Party’s project of market reform," noted a writer for the progressive journal Jacobin, "China is undeniably the epicenter of global labor unrest. While there are no official statistics, it is certain that thousands, if not tens of thousands, of strikes take place each year. All of them are wildcat strikes—there is no such thing as a legal strike in China. So on a typical day anywhere from half a dozen to several dozen strikes are likely taking place."
"The president and the administration did not use any influence (to drop the impeachment complaints)" he said in a news briefing
"These impeachment complaints filed against President Aquino is nothing more than a harassment case and a clear case of a political demolition" said Congressman Jerry Trenas, a staunch ally of the president
"We recognize Congress as a co-equal branch of government and they are just following the processes under the law. We should just leave it to the House of Representatives because under the law, they have jurisdiction over it. So let's wait for their decision" he said
