This Week on People’s History: Mendiola Massacre

In This Week on People’s History, Bulatlat remembers the gruesome massacre of 13 protesting farmers on Jan. 22, 1987. The killed farmers were among the more than 20,000 who marched to the historic bridge of Mendiola, a stone’s throw away from Malacanang, to press for a genuine agrarian reform program.

Today, at least seven out of 10 farmers remain landless. The struggle continues 32 years later.
