Fishers Protest

A policeman grabs a protester by the neck as he tries to stop a group of impoverished fishermen from marching to the Malacanang presidential palace in Manila as they observe National Fisherfolk Day. The protesters claimed that the worsening poverty and hunger among coastal communities nationwide was due to the alleged neglect of the government of Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.
