As much as I can, I'm trying to avoid Nestle Products in solidarity with Nestle Workers in Cabuyao whose leader, Ding Fortuna, was murdered on Sept 22, 2005. But of course, I have nothing against bloggers who joined the Nestle Pops Bloggers Dinner.
I remember when ABS-CBN reported the murder of Ka Fort on its morning news program, they didn't even mention the name of Nestle. Conflict of interest, eh?
There's blood in your coffee keeps an update on Nestle workers union (UFE-DFA-KMU) activities. They have gained partial victory but the struggle is not yet over.
Ding Fortuna is an active member of KMU National Council and has served the militant labor movement for 29 years since 1976 as a labor leader of the multinational company Nestle workers' union. He also holds several positions, including Anakpawis Party List-Southern Tagalog Chairman and Co-Chairperson of the National Coalition for the Protection of Workers Rights-Southern Tagalog (NCPWR-ST). He is survived by his wife Luz Fortuna and their three children
Now, I hope those searching for Nestle Pops would also know about Ka Ding.
