ze16A farmers’ group has asked Catholic bishops to reconsider their position on the government’s CARP. The KMP told the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) that the CARP is set to expire in 2014 and that the Aquino administration and the landlords are calling for the extension of what they allege is an anti-peasant law.

The KMP said the CBCP is supporting the government’s CARP, as it claimed that the program has worsened when it was amended into CARPer.

The government has distributed more public lands than those owned by landlords, the KMP told the CBCP.
