Protesters 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. The workers, who have demanded wage increases for years, assailed Aquino for his holiday "gift" of non-wage benefits. The protesters have been clamoring for years for a wage hike and condemn the government's policy of outsourcing labor.
