The year 2011 was a period of economic and political turmoil. Around the world the global crisis is being felt, with protests growing in different countries as people experience worsening unemployment and inequality. The Philippines, faced with political troubles like the Corona impeachment and Arroyo arrest, is not spared from the effects of the global crisis.
