Price hike, pahirap!

Protesters picket outside the House of Representatives in Quezon City on Monday, calling on the Lower House to address the rising oil prices amid the Ukraine-Russia conflict. The protesters urged the government to implement a price freeze and ceiling on oil, junking of the Oil Deregulation Law, removal of taxes on oil, and provide fuel subsidies for specific workers relying on oil products.
