The Minglanilla Public Market Multi-Purpose Cooperative will be holding a press conference on Wednesday (October 14, 2015), to announce a series of activities against abuses of local authorities on market vendors.
Since September, 2014, the vendors have faced harassment and assaults by police officers and market guards upon the behest of local officials.
This, after the vendors’ protested the corruption and environmental degradation in the construction of the new public market in Brgy. Lower Calajoan, Minglanilla and the authoritarian policies of the local government in forcing their transfer to the controversial site.
