Rallyists converged from a short picket in front of the Department of Agrarian Reform Office and marched to the Bacolod City Public Plaza. Various farmers groups under Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas joined yesterday’s protest action.

Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas (KMP) says that the present Aquino regime has failed the masses and gone to extending the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program which has failed throughout the years, instead it has assured landlords to get hold of lands that are supposed to be distributed to the people who have been tilling the lands since then. KMP also made mention of the failure of the present administration to address the demands of the farmers and peasants, but instead being harassed by members of the military to give way to multi-national interests in the country leaving the farmers deprived of land, food and jobs.
