By NDFP Negotiating Panel
The Negotiating Panel of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP), including its consultants, staffers and volunteers, extends its deepest condolences to Luz Fortuna and their three children on the death of labor leader Diosdado ‘Ka Fort’ Fortuna.
The NDFP strongly condemns his brutal murder. He was a principled labor leader who consistently and courageously worked for workers’ rights and welfare. It is for this reason that he was mercilessly killed at around 6:00 pm on September 22, 2005. He had just left the Nestle picket line in Cabuyao, Laguna to visit his sick grandson when motorcycle-riding assassins shot him twice in the chest.
