PHOTO via Reuters: Labor Day protesters burn an effigy of Pres. Aquino pic.

May 1, 2013: Protesters, mostly workers, burn a mural depicting U.S. President Barack Obama and Philippine President Benigno Aquino III after being blocked by police from getting closer to the U.S. Embassy in Manila to mark International Labor Day in Manila, Philippines.

The workers, who have demanding wage increases for years, assailed Aquino for his Labor Day "gift" of non-wage benefits.
