  1. 25 years is long enough, I think it’s about time for the government to take action to resolve land issues and lay out concrete plans for the farmers and their families’ benefit.

  2. CARP is extension of martial law land reform when NPA infiltrated lands to make farmers to be vigilant to landowners. NPAs were given jobs after martial to the disadvantage of landowners who are now murdered, tortured, by squatters made into farmers/beneficiaries. Presidents sign issue grant deeds without knowledge/consent/payment to landowners. CARp makes people squat here, squat there, then election vote at their squatting residence.
