Call for support: global day of action for food, land and justice, 8 April

by Asian Peasant Coalition | 7 Apr 2016


The Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas or Peasant Movement of the Philippines (KMP) and the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan  or New Patriotic Alliance (BAYAN) announced April 8 as “Nationwide and Global Day of Action for Food, Land and Justice”.

We call on the KMP members and its allied organizations nationwide to launch “sympathy barricades and protests across the country” to condemn the brutal and shameless massacre in Kidapawan perpetrated by the Aquino government. Let us denounce the bloody dispersal of a farmers’ rally in Kidapawan City, North Cotabato last April 1, 2016. The incident left two persons dead, at least 37 hurt and wounded. Many are still unaccounted for after the violent dispersal, including women, elderly and six minors.

We call on the members and networks of the Asian Peasant Coalition (APC) in Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, to be with us and hold Solidarity Actions on April 8, to condemn the brutality of the Aquino government and call for justice to the victims of Kidapawan massacre.

We also call on our international friends and allies to join us on April 8 and support Kidapawan farmers. 

The undeclared martial law in Kidapawan must be stopped.
