Members of the labor group Kilusang Mayo Uno (KMU) held a protest rally along Taft Avenue in Manila on October 7, 2022. The group calls for an end to labor contractualization and an increase in the national minimum wage.

MANILA, Philippines (Updated 5:04 p.m.) — The Facebook account of Kilusang Mayo Uno has been removed from the social media platform without warning, the labor group said Thursday, adding the accounts of the page's administrators have also been locked.


It said that prior to the removal of its account, KMU posts related to Jose Maria Sison — the founding chairman of the Communist Party of the Philippines and who passed away in the Netherlands on Dec. 16, 2022 — were taken down by Facebook for violating Community Standards. 


"There was no advisory from Facebook about the shutdown of the KMU FB page," the group said in its statement in Filipino. It said that the Facebook pages of youth group Anakbayan and of Bagong Alyansang Makabayan have also been taken off the platform.
