Palengke protest against fuel excise tax

Vendors stage a “palengke protest” in a small market along Agham Road in Quezon City on Wednesday, after government announced it had approved the second tranche of a fuel excise tax in 2019. Vendors hit the additional burden of the tax which they say will bring prices of basic commodities up again and affect marginalized sectors the most.
