Babala ni PDu30 vs land grabbers: ‘Tumigil na kayo o aarestuhin ko kayo’

news reg 1 pix 1 november 7 2018CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – Mahigpit na binalaan ni Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte nitong Miyerkules ang sinumang puwersahang mang-aagaw ng mga pribadong lupaing pansakahan, lalo na ang mga naipamahagi na sa mga magsasaka sa ilalim ng programang repormang pansakahan.

Nagbabala ang Pangulo para maiwasan maulit ang sinapit ng siyam na magsasaka noong ika-20 ng Oktobre 2018 na pinaslang makaraan puwersahang inokupa ng grupo ang bahagi ng Hacienda Nene sa Barangay Bulanon, Sagay City, Negros Occidental.

“My instruction to the police is to accost and advise anybody forcibly occupying a privately-owned farmland to leave, and arrest them should they refuse and resist (Ang utos ko sa mga pulis ay supilin ang sinumang mang-aagaw ng pribadong lupaing pansakahan at arestuhin ang sinumang manlalaban),” ani Duterte.

Ang babala ng Pangulo ay bilang pagkatig sa paninindigan ng Kagawaran ng Repormang Pansakahan (DAR) na hindi nito papayagan ang ilegal na pang-aagaw ng lupa na kilala sa lalawigan ng Negros Occidental bilang “bungkalan.”news reg 1 pix 2 november 7 2018 

Ginawa ng Pangulo ang pahayag na ito ilang saglit bago ipinamahagi ang mga titulo ng lupa, may 5,808 ektarya, sa 3,400 benipisyaryo ng Malawakang Programa ng Repormang Pansakahan (CARP). Ito ang pinakamalaking ipinamahaging lupang pang-agraryo sa kanyang administrasyon.

Kabilang sa mga binigyan ng mga lupaing pansakahan ay ang mga rebeldeng nagbalik-loob sa pamahalaan, 300 dito ay kasapi ng Moro Islamic Liberation Front mula sa Lanao del Norte at 241 naman ay dating miyembro ng New People’s Army sa Gingoog City, Misamis Oriental.

Tumanggap din ng kani-kanilang Certificates of Land Ownership Award ang 1,218 mga benepisyaryo mula sa Bukidnon at 134 na iba pa mula sa Misamis Occidental. 

“74 na taong gulang na ako at patuloy na umaasa na mahanap ang kasagutan sa giyera na nagpapatuloy pa rin magpahanggang ngayon, dahilan kung bakit narito pa rin ako dahil mayroon akong commitment sa inyo,” ani Pangulong Duterte sa Bisaya.

news reg 1 pix 3 november 7 2018Nagpahayag din ng kahalintulad na hangarin si DAR Secretary John R. Castriciones,. Wika niya, “Definitely, this (land redistribution) will help our people, those who were former rebels to come back to the mainstream of the society and participate in nation-building (Walang duda, ito ay makatutulong sa ating mga kababayan, lalo na ang mga dating rebeldeng na magbalik-loob sa pamahalaan at makiisa sa pagpapaunlad ng bansa).” 

“One of the reasons why many of our countrymen are lured to the ideologies that are contrary to the belief of our government is that “they suffered some difficulty and some problems when it comes to their economic status (Isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit marami sa ating mga kababayan ang kumakapit sa mga ibang idelohiyang taliwas sa ating pamahalaan ay ang kahirapan sa buhay,” pagdidiin ni Castriciones.

Duterte to land grabbers: Desist or face arrest, 500 rebel-returnees are new landowners

news reg 1 pix 1 november 5 2018CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – President Rodrigo Roa Duterte gave a stern warning Wednesday against any group or individual who would forcibly occupy privately-owned agricultural lands, especially those already awarded to agrarian reform beneficiaries. “Desist or face arrest,” Duterte said.

The President issued the statement in the wake of the October 20 massacre of nine farmers, who belonged to a group that stormed and camped inside a portion of the Hacienda Nene in Barangay Bulanon, Sagay City. 

The President’s warning reinforces the official stand of the Department of Agrarian Reform of not tolerating “bungkalan,” a common practice of various farmers’ groups in Negros Occidental to assert their claims over landholdings without regard to due process.

“My instruction to the police is to accost and advise anybody forcibly occupying a privately-owned farmland to leave, and to arrest them should they refuse and resist,” Duterte said shortly before distributing land titles, covering 5,808 hectares, to some 3,400 farmer-beneficiaries at the University of Science and Technology in Southern Philippines.

Among the new landowners in the biggest single-day land distribution are rebel-returnees from different armed groups. These include some 300 former members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front of the 1,807 beneficiaries from Lanao del Norte and 241 former members of the New People’s Army in Gingoog City, Misamis Oriental. 

Also receiving their Certificates of Land Ownership Award were 1,218 beneficiaries from Bukidnon and 134 beneficiaries from Misamis Occidental.news reg 1 pix 2 november 5 2018 

“I’m 74 years old now and I’m still hopeful that I will find the answer to the war that continues even today. The reason why I am still here (in politics) is because I have made my commitment to you (to put an end to this war),” President Duterte said in local language.

Agrarian Reform Secretary John R. Castriciones echoed the same aspiration. “Definitely, this (land redistribution) will help our people, those who were former rebels to come back to the mainstream of the society and participate in nation-building,” Castriciones said in the sidelines of the event.

“The reason why many of our countrymen are lured to the ideologies that are contrary to the belief of our government is that they suffered difficulties and problems to their economic status. That is just one of the reasons,” Castriciones added. (Richard B. Gallardo)

DAR establishes 176 ARCs in Northern Mindanao

news reg 1 pix 1 july 26 2018The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in Northern Mindanao has established 176 agrarian reform communities (ARCs) since its inception in 1993 as reported by DAR Regional Director Faisar Mambuay during the department’s 2018 mid-year performance review and planning session.

Mambuay said the creation of ARCs pave the way for the formation of more agrarian reform beneficiaries’ organizations (ARBOs). ARBOs include cooperatives or farmers’ organizations, through which the DAR channels various support services.

“The minimum requirement is to have at least 300 ARBs in one barangay, or cluster of barangay, to qualify as an ARC,” Mambuay said.

“As the government steps up the distribution of Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program, or CARP-covered lands, simultaneously, we are also focusing on the provision of support services to empower agrarian-reform beneficiaries (ARBs) and ARBOs,” Mambuay said.

The DAR helps organize more ARBOs through which the DAR provides support, including training, seminars and provision of common service facilities, such as farm tractors, dump trucks, shredders, threshers and related farm equipment.

The DAR also implement various infrastructure projects, such as irrigation and farm-to-market roads in areas where there are existing ARBOs, to maximize project impacts.

ARCs are cluster of contiguous barangays within a municipality where majority of lands have been awarded to a critical mass of ARBs.

The DAR’s performance review and planning session is currently being conducted from July 24-27, to resolve and address problems in implementing agrarian reform.
