National Democratic Front of the Philippines
The Pambansang Katipunan ng mga Magbubukid (PKM), an allied revolutionary peasant organization of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP), today called on all farm workers of Hacienda Luisita to further advance agrarian revolution in the vast estate owned by, President Aquino’s family, the Cojuangco-Aquino clan in the province of Tarlac.
The PKM-NDFP issued the statement after reports alleged that eight magistrates of the Supreme Court voted to grant the motion for reconsideration of the Presidential Agrarian Reform Council and the farmers’ group Ambala during the high tribunal’s regular en banc session on Tuesday.
“Now more than ever, farmers must strengthen their resolve to further advance agrarian revolution in Hacienda Luisita and across the country,” says PKM-NDF spokesperson Andres Agtalon adding: “Hacienda Luisita farm workers should not rely on the Supreme Court decision.”
