Labor leader gunned down in Tanza, Cavite

A labor union organizer was shot by unidentified gunmen while in a meeting with a group of laborers in Tanza, Cavite on Sunday, June 2.

Men riding a motorcycle fired at Leonides “Dennis” Sequeña in Barangay Bunga in Tanza, Cavite, according to labor group Partido Manggagawa (PM).

The 48-year-old labor leader was taken to the General Trias Maternity and Pediatric Hospital but was pronounced dead.

“Dennis is a community leader and has no personal enemies,” PM national chairperson Rene Magtubo said. “We believe this is an extrajudicial killing for Dennis’ work as a labor organizer.”

The group also pressed Congress to investigate the alleged extrajudicial killings of labor leaders and activists, including human rights workers.
