SALUNGGUHIT

17 Years Old and Getting Worse

By Jasper Almirante/ Bulatlat

On the 17th anniversary of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP), Filipino farmers remain plagued by landlessness, as land use conversion favoring multinational agri-business giants chews into the little food security that the country still enjoys. Instead of addressing the ages-old maladies of landlessness and hunger, 17 years of the CARP have only served to aggravate these. There is thus more and more reason for farmers and the rest of the people to join forces in the fight for genuine agrarian reform.

Salungguhit literally means to underline; figuratively, to underscore or highlight.
