A labor group on Friday criticized actor-satirist Manuel Urbano Jr. (a.k.a. Jun Urbano) for starring in a government bank infomercial depicting militant groups as troublemakers even as it said that the recent killing of a peasant leader was the 'opening salvo' of a new campaign against militants.
The Kilusang Mayo Uno (KMU) warned Urbano he could be held responsible if the commercials of the Development Bank of the Philippines trigger another wave of extra-judicial killings.
KMU said the DBP commercial declares the illusory "pagbabago'y nasa sarili" or self-remolding as alternative solution to Philippine crisis.
