ARROYO's SON LED LOBBY AGAINST LAND REFORM (tags)
The eldest child of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Rep. Mikey Arroyo of Pampanga province, was the leader of the landlord lobby in the House of Representatives that resulted in the demise of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP), a militant party-list congressman claimed Friday. Rep. Satur Ocampo of the Bayan Muna party-list group said, “In the first all-party caucus in the middle of the year, [Speaker Prospero Nograles] called for an initial straw vote by asking the representatives to stand up. Mikey Arroyo led those who voted against CARP extension.”
REBOLUSYONG AGRARYO , SAGOT SA ANTI- MAGSASAKANG CARP/ HUWAD NA REPORMA SA LUPA (tags)
ng plano ng rehimeng US-Arroyo na palawigin pa nang limang taon ang Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) ay taliwas sa pagsusulong ng interes ng masang magsasakang matagal nang naghahangad ng tunay na reporma sa lupa. Walang ibang layunin dito ang rehimeng US-Arroyo kundi ang patuloy na linlangin at apihin ang masang magsasaka at ibulsa ang malaking pondo nito. Tulad ng lahat ng nagdaang programa sa reporma sa lupa ng reaksyunaryong estado, ang CARP ay huwad at walang tunay na kaugnayan sa repormang agraryo. Nagsilbi lamang ito para lalong pagtibayin ang monopolyong kontrol ng mga lupain sa bansa, at ibukas ang mga ito sa mga dayuhan alinsunod sa imperyalistang patakarang "globalisasyon."

IBASURA ANG CARP! ISULONG ANG PAKIKIBAKANG AGRARYO! (tags)
Nanawagan ngayon ang rebolusyonaryong kilusan sa Pilipinas na patuloy na isulong ang rebolusyong agraryo at lalo pang magsumigasig na ibasura ang pekeng land reform ng gobyernong-Arroyo. Sa loob ng halos dalawang dekada nang pagsasakatuparan ng Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP), malinaw sa masang magsasaka na isa lamang itong huwad na programa sa reporma sa lupa. Malaking panloloko ang deklaradong layunin at mga sinasabing tagumpay nito. Nananatili hanggang ngayon ang malawakang problema ng kawalan ng lupa ng nakararaming magsasaka.
KMP-Negros revive calls to scrap ‘flawed’ agrarian reform law (tags)
With the recent death of two farmer beneficiaries and the wounding of several others in Hacienda Velez-Malaga, La Castellana town, Negros Occidental, calls for the scrapping of the “flawed” agrarian reform law has been revived. Claiming that it has not benefited poor farmers but consolidated the stronghold of big landowners, militant groups’ Kilu sang Mang bubukid Pilipinas-Negros, Pamalakaya, and the biggest labor group in the sugar industry, the National Federation of Sugar Workers (NFSW), slammed the “fake” CARP law and will oppose plans to extend it. The three groups also condemned the killing of the two members of Task Force Ma palad (TFM) last Monday saying this shows a “glaring failure” of CARP. However, they also criticized TFM for giving “false hopes” to their members in owning land.
