Hungry for sound leadership

Hunger strikes staged mostly by our farmers are nothing new to us. We often see them with banners in front of concerned government agencies, staking their claims on land they have tilled night and day. But more often than not, these protests and claims fall on deaf ears.

Intersect, the quarterly magazine of the John J. Carroll Institute on Church and Social Issues (JJCICSI) in its post-election issue titled “Directions, anyone?” features an article on the plight of farmers particularly the case of the Hacienda Velez-Malaga farmers. Titled “Have we Elected the Leaders who will Advocate for the Rights of Farmers?,” the article focuses on these farmers’ struggle to their rightful claim of land and how the government has addressed this. Also featured is a timeline of the events that transpired in the said struggle.

Will there be more hunger strikes by our farmers in the future or can this be prevented by sound leadership? Find out and read the Intersect now!
