On May 1, 1903, during theAmerican colonial period the Union Obrera Democratica Filipina (Filipino Democratic Labor Union) held a 100,000-person[52] rally in front of the MalacaƱan Palace demanding workers’ economic rights and Philippine independence.[citation needed] Ten years later, the first official[by whom?] celebration was held on May 1, 1913 when 36 labor unions convened for a congress in Manila.[52] On May 1, 2001, a mass demonstration occurred near MalacaƱang Palace known as EDSA 3 or May 1 Riots.” *wikipedia
