Candles lit to reiterate demand for justice

Ten years after the Hacienda Luisita massacre, the P-Noy clan has given no indication that it will move to end its bloodstained land-monopoly and abandon its slave-wages-for-farmworkers practice. It’s totally outrageous that President Aquino’s family expects Filipino farmworkers and their families to survive on P9.50 a day (less than 0.30 New Zealand dollars) and silences […]
