Struggle for Land

STRUGGLE FOR LAND. Carrying squash on their heads, women farmers from Bukidnon, Davao del Oriental, Negros Island and Batangas reach Mendiola on their march to Malacanang. The march is aimed to press President Aquino to pursue the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program with Extension and Reforms. Aquino, who is in the US, has instructed top government officials to dialogue with the farmers who have gotten the support of at least 51 bishops. Photo by Jimmy Domingo / Task Force Mapalad
