Gabriela Women’s Party regional chapters from Bicol and Southern Tagalog were among those who marched in the week-long peasant march for food, land and social justice.
The Lakbayan which started in Nasugbu, Batangas last January 16 arried in Metro Manila yesterday. Protesters held picket at the EDSA Shrine, to commemorate the EDSA II uprising that ousted former President Joseph Estrada.
The Lakbayanis deplored the Arroyo regime’s attempts to extend the sham comprehensive agrarian reform program.
The Lakabayan will culminate in a rally commemorating the 21st anniversary of the Mendiola Massacre.
