Video: Let the Peasants' Voice be Heard!

 

Peasants have the right to freedom of thought, belief, conscience, religion, opinion, expression, and peaceful assembly. They have the right to express their opinion, including through claims, petitions, and mobilizations at the local, regional, national, and international levels.

In April 2016, more than 300 farmers from Quezon Province in the Philippines marched 130 kilometers from Sariaya, Quezon to Manila demanding land, food and justice. Focus on the Global South's Galileo de Guzman Castillo was there to witness and document the historic march. Watch the short documentary Lupa, Pagkain, at Hustisya (Land, Food, and Justice) by Galileo de Guzman Castillo and independent filmmaker Byan Bocar here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mT_IKBl53M8
