Left appointees to head DAR, DSWD, bare priorities

Incoming Agrarian Reform Secretary Rafael Mariano and incoming Social Welfare and Development Secretary Judy Taguiwalo vowed to continue serving the people. Mariano said he would strengthen the possession of farmer-beneficiaries to the lands while Taguiwalo said she would ensure that the services and programs of government actually reach the people.

“Just as they arrived back in their community (after the barricade last week), Kagawad Jose and all those who participated in the Kampuhan at the DSWD were harassed by the Barangay Captain and the military from the 67th Infantry Battalion Philippine Army. Supposedly, she was on her way to Davao City after the session to report the cases of human rights violations, but she was brutally killed.” – Karapatan–SMR
