Last month, the workers of NutriAsia were complaining and protesting about the unfair labotr practices that were violently dispersed. And just recently after an ecumenical mass was held outside NutriAsia’s industrial facility in Marilao, Bulacan, around three hundred NutriAsia laborers and their supporters were savagely scattered by the company’s security and police forces.

“Scores were injured, while many others remain missing,” the groups said.

This is according to a caution rights group Karapatan and labor group Kilusang Mayo Uno.

On the same day NutriAsia announced saying that violence started around 2:45pm when somebody terminated a shot and began to fling rocks from the side of the two hundred laborers of toll packer BMirk on strike and the supporters.  They also said that Malolos court directive issued last July 26 was violated by the protestors.  The directive is requesting all independent workers in association not to block passage and leave methods for the organization's plant in Marilao, Bulacan.

The brutality against NutriAsia specialists got wide judgment and the people who saw the photograph of an elderly lady harmed amid the dispersal that went viral encouraging others to boycott NutriAsia.

The NutriAsia administration and the police work force who took an interest in the rough dispersal ought to be considered responsible according to Rep. Carlos Zarate of Bayan Muna party-list while Rep. Sarah Elago of Kabataan party-list questioned the police’s brutishness and cruelty and even wished to discharge the people who were caught.

Duterte’s attention was also called by KMU to “implement its own meager restrictions on the illegal practice of contractualization, instead of siding with management and harming the workers in their legitimate protest.”

Meanwhile, The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines likewise upbraided the assault as two of columnists were ambushed and undermined by NutriAsia security and Bulacan police.
"The ambush on and the conceivable worry of our associates is a reasonable assault on squeeze opportunity and features the expanding risks writers confront," NUJP said.
