We welcome the Supreme Court decision on Hacienda Luisita. It is a victory of the farmers of Luisita who have persevered in the struggle for land reform for decades. It is a victory for the Filipino workers and people who have consistently supported the Luisita farmers in their struggle.
We are hoping that the Supreme Court today will come up with a final pr0-farmer ruling on the decades-old land dispute in Hacienda Luisita. We hope that it will decide in favor of the immediate, free, and unconditional distribution of Luisita’s lands to farmers.
