1741 households of farmers are threatened to be turned landless and destitute. Under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) they had received landholdings of a total of 2074 hectares. This redistribution had been implemented rightfully in accordance with Philippine laws. Now the former landowners try to reclaim the land. Although the claims of these former landowners were officially declared void, several cases of displacement have already taken place. As such, the right to food of the farmer-households is at stake.
Request as well your government to take action. Sustainable access to land is one of the central measures to secure peoples right to food. Development policies and development aid should grant continuous support to agrarian reform programmes.
