The group “Artists for Kidapawan”  performed around downtown Manila last April 30 to dramatize their support for the victims of the violent dispersal of protesting farmers in North Cotabato four weeks ago.  The artists performed dances and tableaux at Plaza Miranda, Recto, Bustillos, Morayta and España.

In preparation for Labor Day today, the artists also performed in front of malls, which are said to be the main practitioners of labor-only-contracting among workers.
