Protest planking is definitely out.

 

ABS-CBNNews.com reports: "Adopting the so-called 'Noynoying' [pose], farmers of Hacienda Luisita stood idle in front of the Supreme Court (SC) as they urged the high tribunal yet again to stand pat on its unanimous ruling last November ordering the distribution of the 6,435-hectare Cojuangco-owned sugar estate's agricultural lands."

 

The report by na Reformina further revealed that the farmers, led by the Unyon ng mga Manggagawa sa Agrikultura and Alyansa ng mga Manggagawang Bukid sa Asyenda Luisita (Ambala), continue to accuse President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino of  "harassing Supreme Court justices in an effort to overturn the landmark agrarian reform decision or accord Hacienda Luisita, Inc. (HLI) the P10 billion it seeks for just compensation."

    i just hope that if these poor farmers do get their land, they will not end up selling it to their former slavemasters. the government needs to support them to ensure that they have the resources to till the property. if not... well.

    Will only believe the president if his clan's vast landholdings get distributed to their former slaves. Slaves, because the hacienda management had the gall to pay many of their farmers nine pesos and fifty centavos! It says so in their payslips. Mga demonyo na ata ang mga nagpapatakbo ng hacienda na yan, e.

    Filipina,I'm glad there are people like you who are enlightened at hindi nadadala sa Media Blitz ng Principe. Hawak nila ang media, the broadsheets, the TV networks, The fake surveys, the paid hacks, the mercenaries @ the house of representatives, sa senado, sa polite society, pati na yung dating sikat na leftist na si Mr. Conrado de Quiroz, na nakalimutan na yata yung mantra nila noon na Tamad na Burgis...It's an uphill struggle dahil sa majority ng Pinoy eh Mang mang at hindi enlighthened kaya madaling paikutin. 103 Million Filipinos na tayo ( according to the CIA Fact Book), what do you think ang chances of SOCIAL CHANGE?

      Thank you again. To see things through a different perspective is what we must adhere to do. What you wrote above has truth in it and not to mention informative. Survey is used to condition the mind of the people, it does not present the thoughts of the respondents.
      About social change, well this is a broad concept to start with because it may mean as a change or an alteration in society but it is not that simple. Ang daming factors to consider kasi puede change in socio cultural, change in social progress, socio-economic structure or political at puede rin naman change through technology. Sa Pilipinas naman, we somehow manage to effect some social changes, from the '60s to the present, we have gone a long way. I want to be positive regarding social change in the Philippines. But we can do this effectively if we will not rely so much on government. We must remember that it is us, the people who make up the government, not the other way around. If only we can start working as one people then it will not be that difficult. If only we can educate ourselves on the how's and what's. I am still optimistic, really.

      By the way, your username is "Conrado de Q." just like the name of the leftist, puede ko i-assume na you are opposed to many things about our government? just asking. nice exchanging comments with you.

    Ikaw naman FILIPINA, you were not born yesterday,Right? so dapat alam mo na FEUDAL pa rin ang PILIPINAS, si PENOY ang poster boy ng FEUDALISM dahil siya ang ENFORCER ng HACIENDA LUISITA.Gusto ng Pamilya niya ( COJUANGCO-AQUINO), tuloy ang Ligaya, que se hodang maghirap ang Pilipinas basta sila Mayaman. Luma na actually itong mga issue na ito.60s pa, at maraming mga militant groups ang nagbuwis ng buhay dito to effect social change.Pero wala eh masyadong malakas ang STATUS QUO, kaya balik to square one at tuloy ang impoverishment ng Pilipinas. Aren't you glad to be born a FILIPINA?

      Thanks sa reply. Yes, alam ko ang issue ng feudalism, kaya ang sabi ko it is worth pondering. For us, thinking Filipinos dapat alam natin effects nito and at least how to counter. Ang maliliit na mamamayan ang mas nahihirapan dito but sabi mo nga because of reasons beyond the control of ordinary Filipino people mahirap basta mabago, lalo na ang prinsipe ng mga Cojuangco ang presidente. Kaya nga ginagawa nya lahat to protect what he inherited from his parents.

      I am still glad that I am a filipina. I will always be. Thank you for asking.

    Bakit ba pinagiinitan ninyo si Penoy! Hindi ba ninyo alam na he is just acting TRUE TO HIS NATURE? anong nature niya? TAMAD NA BURGIS na AYAW GUMAWA,sa PAWIS NG IBA NAGPAPASA! Eh sa FEUDAL pa rin tayo eh...

      Sana kinalimutan na nya ang true nature nya kasi he is already a president. You know, the "feudal" thing that you mentioned is worth pondering at. It has intelligence in it, is it really bad ? or is the effect really that bad?

    Hindi naman tamad si Penoy Boy. Masipag mag date ng iba-ibang chikababes, masipag mag playstation, masipag mag target practice sa shooting range, masipag humitit ng yosi, masipag mambraso sa mga taong diskumpyado sya. See, napakasipag di ba?

    Another case of unequal distribution of wealth and many others. I hope that these farmers be given what is due them. They have suffered long enough. Ordinary Filipino people could only pity them because a lot of us can relate to their difficulties. Further hoping that Hacienda Luisita management be nice and fair to them.
