DAR's dialogue with beneficiaries end rally

piaNEGROS OCCIDENTAL, Jan. 26 (PIA6) - - A three-day rally to voice out concerns and needs of farmer-beneficiaries in southern Negros ended in a dialogue with the Department of Agrarian Reform.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Lucrecia Taberna talked with the farmer-beneficiaries on their clamor for the implementation of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program.


These farmers came from Kabankalan, Binalbagan, La Castellana, Himamaylan, and Bago who camped outside the DAR-South office in Bacolod City, also in commemoration of the Mendiola Massacre on January 22.

Some of the issues discussed during the dialogue were the prolonged agony of the farmers to own a parcel of land under the implementation of CARP, expedite the distribution of land under their names, survey of their areas, among others.

DAR through its representative, Civil Society Organization (CSO) Point Person Domingo Gatmaitan assured the farmers that the department is already doing its part to distribute those remaining lots which already have Notices of Coverage (NOCs).

Gatmaitan assured the farmers that they are always centered on DAR mission which is to lead in the implementation of agrarian reform and sustainable rural development in the country through land tenure improvement and the provision of integrated development services to landless farmers, farm workers, small landowners-cultivators, and the delivery of agrarian justice.

Both parties agreed to conduct a regular dialogue in every district or municipality inorder to maintain harmonious relationship of the department and its beneficiaries and to avoid further conduct of rallies and demonstrations from the group of farmers.*(JCM/EAD-PIA6/DAR Negros Occidental)
