The first part of the song is for the teachers and students in Oaxaca, Mexico who were protesting against the educational reforms of president Nieto in June 2016. Violence erupted when the federal police fired live ammunition against the protesters. Eight people died and more than a hundred were injured.
The second part is our homage to the song "Battle of Mendiola" by 80's filipino punk band Urban Bandits. Our version is about the Kidapawan Massacre that happened in North Cotabato, Philippines in March 2016. Farmers were protesting against the non-distribution of rice by the National Food Authority and local government despite the drought that has been happening in the region. At least three people died and more than a hundred injured when the police fired live ammunition at the protesters.
