Dark clouds hovering above a lone tree and a dirt road with coarse grass on both sides picture a field of tranquillity. An unlikely calm, this, as a lone tricycle negotiates the road that leads to Hacienda Luisita in Tarlac (120 kms north of Manila) where last November seven striking workers were mowed down by bullets fired by soldiers and policemen. Is this a lull that could lead to another storm?
