Dekada calls for a boycott!

Hey, I may not be an Overseas Filipino Worker (not that there's anything wrong with that), but I have a lot of friends who are. One of them forwarded me this text message:
FWD: MSG. FR. 788XXXX. JUAN T. GUERRERO-OWNER OF WESTERN UNION & HERMANS BKRY IS AGAINST FDRAL TAKEOVER! 2 ALL OFW DO NOT PATRONIZE.
A few years ago a group of OFWs boycotted Brad's favorite hangout, Jollibee. They were protesting Ray Yumul's version of the Labor Bill currently making headlines. They were successful in killing that bill.

I am told that this boycott is being led by Dekada. I tried calling the phone number in the message to confirm, but no one answered. I don't know whose phone it is, so I feel uncomfortable publishing the number. I am the CNMI's #3 WMD (Written Media Doohickey) and that would be unethical.

All of those readers looking at pictures of dancing monkeys might, well, let's just not go there.
