news national 2 pix 1 may 1 2017Agrarian reform Secretary Rafael "Ka Paeng” V. Mariano today joined thousands of protesters to express support in their demand for free land distribution, living wage, jobs and social services.

Today's rally is in celebration of the International Labor Day.

Mariano called on farmers nationwide to link arms with the workers and urban poor in demanding for social justice and an end to pro-oligarchy policies that continue to exploit the people.
He urged the workers to lead the mass movement for genuine agrarian reform and the passage of HB 555. The bill now pending in Congress aims to dismantle land monopolies, confiscation of sullied private agricultural lands, and the elimination of the dominance of landlords, big business and foreign powers.
