THE two-day transport strike that ended on Tuesday was “generally peaceful” although it failed to paralyze public transport services, a spokesman for the Philippine National Police (PNP) said.
“The strike protests were closely monitored by security forces in coordination with designated marshalls,” Chief Supt. Dionardo Carlos said in a statement.
Carlos said that the nationwide suspension of classes and work in government offices served to prevent the unwanted effects of “lack of public transportation” as a result of the strike.
“Overall, however, there was no general paralysis of public transportation services reported anywhere,” Carlos said. RJ CARBONELL
