Hacienda Luisita farmers hold placard to show support for embattled Chief Justice Renato Corona, calling him ‘Champion of Agrarian Reform’. They heard Thursday’s Thanksgiving Mass at the Supreme Court. TETCH TORRES/INQUIRER.net

MANILA, Philippines—Farmers from the vast sugar estate of President Benigno Aquino’s family heard Thursday’s Thanksgiving Mass at the Supreme Court.

The Catholic mass, officiated by Fr. Dave Clay, was offered for embattled Chief Justice Renato Corona to mark his second year as chief magistrate.

Also in attendance were Associate Justices Teresita Leonardo-De Castro and Jose Perez, defense lawyers Judd Roy, Ramon Esguerra and German Lichaoco II and court employees.

Members of the Confederation of Government Employees of the Philippines also heard the mass, which was also the 5th day of Octave Mass for Corona, who is set to testify Tuesday at his impeachment trial in the Senate.

The Supreme Court last month ordered the distribution to farmers of the 4,915-hectare Hacienda Luisita. The farmers on Thursday called Corona “Champion of Agrarian Reform.”

Corona was chosen as chief magistrate in 2010 by then outgoing president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

His appointment was highly contested, citing constitutional prohibition on appointments two months ahead of national elections.

The high court, however, upheld Arroyo’s power to appoint justices of the high court, saying it does not fall under the prohibitions of the Philippine Constitution.

    nakikisawsaw pa kayo!!!

      Nais kasi nila na wala ng bayad ang lupang makukuha sa HLI kaya hayan, todo suporta hanggang may ‘niluluto silang pabor’ hehehehehe… mahilig sa libre kasi.

      • sc53300

        So what is the payment for JUST COMPENSATION for? 

      • $5699914

        bo-bits, payment of the lands as per stipulated in the agrarian law.
        Giving these lands free is not fair for those other Filipinos working hard to save some money to buy at  least a small plot of land to call their own. something given free will surely be squandered in a short time.

      • BayanBangon

        Ngayon ang problema ay ang mga lupa na hahatian nila ay hindi pareho, mga 25% ay mga bato o matigas at hindi puwede mag tamin ng play or sugar cane, yong 60% ay Sugar Cane lang or mga Gulay/Fruits ang recomendadong itanim, at yong natitira ay palay ang ok, Eh papaano pag hahatiin ng tama at hindi mag iingit ang iba kung paano hattin ng matiwasay.  Sigurado ko na mag kakaroon ng gulo sa bawat HLI Members sa gustong area na lupa na angkinin.

      • $5699914

        May tama ka sa puntong iyan. Pero sana magkaroon ng matinong isipan ang mga miyembro na tatanggap. At kung ganyan man ang ang mangyari sa uri ng lupa na matatanggap nila, sana yung babayaran nila ay naaayon roon sa uri ng lupa na matatanggap nila.
        Unahan sila pihado sa mga lupa na malalapit sa kalsada…..

    maniwala naman akong nag-aksaya pa ng pamasahe ang mga obrerong taga luisita para lang kay corona. ang taas na ng pamasahe kaya sigurado kung taga luisita man yan eh hakot yan.

    i remember my kumpare telling me story noong panahon na si gloria arroyo ay gustong gusto kuno ng mga taga pampangga na tumakbo bilang kongresista sa pampanga, it turned out to be hakot at ang sabi ng mga driver basta babayaran sila ng hindi bababa sa 1k or  500 pesos bawat isa basta sumunod lang sila sagot ng organizer ang gasolina at libre pakain pa. yung sasakyan ng bayaw ng kumpare ko hindi nakakalampas ng porac dahil hinuhuli agad, pero that time, nagulat sila dahil nasa nlex na sila eh walang sumisita. then nagulat sila dahil sa harap ng isang gusali sila tumigil at iyon pala eh malakanyang na first time nila nakita ayun rally pala at pinalalabas na iyon ang clamor ng mga taga pampanga. this really happened. kaya i’m sure karamihan sa mga iyan ay hindi alam kung bakit sila nandyan ang alam nila ay babayaran sila.

      • Jamm3r

        i never doubted whatever is in their heart. ang nakaka-awa lang ay ginagamit sila ng mga may pera sa kanilang krusada. ang sinasabi ko lang naman eh alam kaya talaga ng mga taga luisita ang dahilan ng kanilang pagpunta sa lugar na iyan. kung iisipin, ang layo ng luisita sa supreme court. pamasahe pa lang balikan eh siguradong pwede na nilang pang-isang linggong pagkain. sigurado din akong hindi pwedeng hindi sila gagastos man lang kung pupunta nga sila ng kusa gaya ng pagkain nila o pantubig man lang. so paano ako maniniwalang kusang loob nila ang pagpunta diyan?

  • cantonese

    If those Obrero in Hacienda Luisita recognize Chief Justice Renato Corona as the Agrarian Reform Champion, why not name the main blvd of the so called area given to them in his honor? Likewise the other street in honor of the other Supreme court Justices who voted in their favor.

    This only a suggestion and nothing personal against the President, mr Lacierda And Valte.

  • quirinomayer

    Granting that Corona has the undying support of a big percent of the employees of the Judiciary, the full support of the INC and likewise the HLI farmers, that does not make him less guilty of amassing hundreds of millions of unexplained wealth and for monkeying with his SALN. Furthermore, those groups combined will not form 5 percent of the population. They will be swamped by the people who are sick and tired of him due to his lies, unmitigated greed and unquestioning support and protection of the most corrupt president this country ever had.

      Exactly. Bakit biglang idol nila si Corona eh sa mga Aquino galing ang lupang ipinagpapasalamat nila? Hindi naman ipinagkait yan eh. Si Cory nga ang nag-pasimuno ng CARP. Ngayo kay Corona ang credit? Isa pa, akala ko hindi lang si COrona ang nasa Supreme Court at wala syang kakayanan na mag-impluwensya ng mga kasamahan nya gaya ng sabi ng mga abogado nya? Lastly, aapat lang yata ang farmers na pumunta ah. Yung isa sa picture tinakpan nya ang mukha nya, yung isa naman sa ibang dereksyon humarap. Isa lang ang nakatingin sa camera. Ang lungkot pa kasi ginagamit na naman sila. Hay.

    It is a sad state of affairs that the only one to help the farmers takes $1,000,000 for every $1 they get and because of this they support him.   If they only understood that the reason the only get $1 is because he is taking the $1,000,000 that should be going to them.

  • Erewhon Revisited

    How sad, after this charade these poor farmers will go back to their families in Tarlac empty handed, they paid for their own fare, banners and streamers just to show support for their “hero” who ironically will have to sit on the witness stand on Tuesday, which he shamelessly been trying to avoid for the past 4 months,  to answer all the charges against him.

    Corona, a 1 one vote from SC, Hero to the thousands of HLI farmers.

    Corona who lied to millions of Filipinos, including those HLI farmers which he claims “he love so much”.

    Poor Farmers.

  • DarkSideOfTheMoon2

    like any other politicians…let us use mass and prayers to cover or our “evil image”….

  • Wackawackawacka

    This is an absolute circus.

    In no other country in the world, do people go out of their way to give support to the Supreme Court.  The Supreme Court should be the most sparkling clean portion of the government.  Most countries don’t even know who their Supreme Court members are.  You don’t question them or have to support them.  They are SUPREME.

    Now, if there is a corrupt official in the Supreme Court, it shows the absolute depth of this cancer that has affected the country.  The members of the supreme court are suppose to embody and protect the constitution.  If Corona has one single cent not accounted for, or one single cent he cannot say where it came from, he then needs to be made an example of.  Anything less than that just shows how WEAK the system is and how it only benefits the rich and powerful. It is now that we have to take the country back.

    Last, Supreme Court members do not take up a CAUSE.  They hear cases and make a decision based on the constitution and law.  Corona is not defending the land farmers.  All members of the Supreme court are acting not by feeling, but by the constitution and law. 

    GONG SHOW!!!!

    The SC ruled in favor of you farmers, be grateful indeed. Behind the scene over that land dispute is an issue of greater concern. That is, the credibility of the CJ to stay in power due to the nature of his appointment and alleged dishonesty in declaring his SALN plus the questionable source.
    It is but natural for these people to reciprocate on a good deed especially those that favors them but to exercise correct judgment is another thing.
    Quite disturbing is this CJ’s yield to the support of these farmers who wants to thank them of said favors. This simply shows the SC’s admission their decisions were politically motivated.
    But go ahead with your designs. This is the Philippines.

    All of a sudden corona was honored as “the champion of land reform”. My hair raised upon hearing him saying to the farmers (something like) “ibigay ko ang aking buhay para sa iyo.” Will this have happened had he not been in trouble of this impeachment trial? How easily poor people can be manipulated by those who are in power! Anyway it’s their bread that corona is giving to them but “a man can’t live by bread alone.”

    Mabuti at nakuha ng mga magsasaka ang Hacienda Luisita,
     kailan kaya makukuha ng kaanak ng asawa ni Corona ang BGEI.

    Ang may prinsipyo at naninindigan para sa prinsipyo hindi na kailangan ipangalandakan ang kesyo ginawa niya. Ang tunay na nagmamahal ay marunong magsakripisyo na hindi naghihintay ng kapalit.   Sa kaso ni Corona yong kaso ng Hacienda Luisita ay palabas lang.  Yong kanyang “Tinaya ko na po ang buhay ko para sa inyo. Tinaya ko na ang lahat para sa inyo.” parang  sinasabi rin niya doon sa mga magsasaka “kuno” na dumalo sa misa na “itaya ninyo rin ang buhay ninyo para sa akin”.  Ang talagang totoo itinaya niya ang buhay niya noong ilabas ang TRO para makaalis si Gloria at Mike hindi doon sa kaso ng Hacienda Luisita.  Kalaban at kinilaban niya  ang mga taong may prinsipyo dahil sa TRO na ito. Dito nagsimula ang lahat.

    Nabunyag at nalantad ang huwad at mapagpanggap na pagkatao ni Corona.  Hindi na kailangang busisiin pa ang mga dolyar niya.  Mas mahalaga ang tunay na pagkatao niya.  Pati ba naman maling rekord o tala niya sa paaralan pinalalabas niya.  Taliwas sa sinasabi niya na hindi daw siya nakikialam sa kaso ng BGEI ,  dahil na rin sa kanyang mga depensa sa IC , kitang-kita ang ginawa ng asawa sa tulong ni Corona na mamani-obra ang lahat para mapasa kanila ang kita at pagiging may-ari nito. 

    Punong-mahistrado—-sinungaling, walang prinsipyo, hindi alam ang tama at mali?

      Punong Mahistrado—sinungaling, walang prinsipyo—– 100% agree.
      To satisfy his greed, ang mali ginagawa nyang tama, ang tama deadma lang siya

  • Alexis_Ferro

    Tapos na ang maliligayang araw mo Corona. Pagkatapos ng impeachment, sa Ombudsman ka naman may kaso. Diyan lalabas lahat ng baho mo. Kulong ka pa dahil sa ill gotten wealth.
     Aray ko, sakit sa ulo yan.

    “HYPOCRISY” OF THE HIGHEST DEGREE PARTICULARLY THOSE AT THE HIGH PLACES. THEY ARE CASTING STONES TO THE CJ FOR THE FLIMSIEST REASON OF FAILING TO DISCLOSE ALL PERTINENT INFORMATION IN HIS SALN. BY INVOKING THE CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION ON “EQUAL PROTECTION CLAUSE” ALONE, THE CJ COULD HAVE BEEN ACQUITTED SINCE DAY ONE OF THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL. PARANG SI CJ LANG ANG MAY MAY PAGKUKULANG SA PAGDEKLARA NG KATOTOHANAN SA KANYANG SALN. TRY TO EXAMINE ALSO THE SALN’S OF THE (FARCE) PREXY, OTHER IMPEACHABLE OFFICIALS,  ALL SENATORS, ALL SOLONS, ALL CABINET SECRETARIES,  ALL STATE WORKERS, ETC. PARA MAGKAALAMAN NA KUNG SINO ANG NAGSISINUNGALING. SASABIHIN PA NI PENOY NA “WALANG PERSONALAN ITO”, TELL THAT TO THE MARINES! EH, ALMOST ARAW-ARAW, TINUTUTOKAN ANG IMPEACHMENT TRIAL AT VERY OBVIOUS PA ANG KANYANG MGA COMMENTARIES. SINO ANG SINUNGALING? TAMA SI DOROMAL – “GANG-UP CONSPIRACY”, OR BETTER STILL, A STATE-SPONSORED PERSECUTION! (USING ALL RESOURCES OF THE GOVERNMENT TO ADVANCE THE SELFISH INTERESTS OF THE FEW IN THE HIGH PLACES). THIS IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL, AGAINST THE “BILL OF RIGHTS” PROVISO, A SOLID GROUND FOR IMPEACHMENT.

      Manure must be wiped off. You Corona lackeys seem to lack the standards of decency to understand that. Shame on your stinking bASSES, paid hack.

      • yellow_zombies

        STFU… go back to your boss Don Peping. A nice reward is waiting for you courtesy of Hacienda Luisita. LOL.

        Balato naman dyan. Hahahaha…. Pu$$y…

      When TRO for GMA travel and other flip flopping cases were  disputed and questioned, Corona took alibi saying that he has only one (single) vote, same as other Associate Justice. In other word, he has not, and did not influence other Associate Justice in the voting process.
      However, in the Hacienda Luisita, why is he taking credit for the SC decision on the redistribution of the land to the farmers? Isn’t he has only one vote and has no influence whatsoever on the decision?
      “Champion of Agrarian Reform”? Shame on you. Let see if you can redistribute the huge hacienda of Arroyos and Marcos family.

  • tiktikrobong

    KUNG ANG SC AY MAY NAKITA NIYA NA DAPAT NIYANG GAWIN PARA SA KABUTIHAN NG LAHAT AY TRABAHO NIYA IYON.

    ANG MGA KAPATID SA HL AY DAPAT LANG NA MARINIG ANG KANILANG DAING.

    ANG IMPEACHMENT KAY CJ AY DAHIL UNANG UNA AY NAGPAPAGAMIT KASI SIYA KAY ARROYO (HALATANG HALATA NA LAHAT NA KASO NA MAIBATO KAY ARROYO AY BINABALE WALA NIYA AT GUSTO PA NIYANG PATAKASIN PARA HINDI MAIKULONG… dapat na gawin niya ito dahil NAPAKALAKI ang utang na luob niya kay arroyo)

    PANGALAWA AY ALAM NG KARAMIHAN NA MAYROON SIYANG GINAGAWA NA PANGKUKURAKOT SA KABAN NG BAYAN. (ang buis natin ay ipinalitna niya sa dollar para hindi daw mailabas na ibidensia kahit maimpitz cya…. he he he ang galing ata ni manong johnie)

    DAHIL nagbabayad siya kay arroyo….. ngayon ay sisingilin niya rin ang mga kapatid natin sa LC…. bakit ano ang tingin niya sa mga kapatid natin sa LC…!? dahil kumo mangmang at maralita sila sa tingin niya ay ang akala na niya ay  magamit na niya cla na tutulong sa kanya.  ALAM na niya kasi na maikukulong na siya…..!

    • tiktikrobong

      sori ang LC sa last paragraph ay HL.. salamat po.

  • ethicsingov

     I happen not to be there in the PHL, when are these masses in SC
    premises held? Is it during office hours? What happened to the
    separation of church and state? What is the CJ modelling here? 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QCEUSKKXRXXVWN6VMBRY7F43ZU Mangku Kulam

    Magkano kaya binabayad sa mga ito, halatang well finance sa placard nalang o, Walanghiya talaga itong si Corona tigas ng mukha! 

  • whyinthisworld

    I am not so concerned about the decision made by the supreme court to give farmers of hacienda luisita their shares on land they tilt long time ago. But my concern as well as many of the pilipino people is the decision of  “supreme court justices association incorporated”  in upholding arroyo’s power to appoint justices in the high court inspite of constitutional prohibition on appointment two months ahead of national election.  So it’s clearly prove then that this powerful “association” can decide in your favor provided you know whom and money. One is always the winner.

  • joeybg

    hes not really the CJ, kasi iyong nagapoint sa kaya last election ay wala na sa puwesto bago siya naappoint talo na sa election si arroyo, kung nakakaintindi ang pilipinas di dapat naging CJ si corona, alam din ni corona ito, ang laki kasing perang binigay ni arroyo sa kanya kaya pumayag siyang maging CJ kahit alam niyang illegal.

  • catmanjohn

    The vile pig faced Corona preys on the short sighted gullible knaves to deceive the masses as a champion of the workers, but as long as it is at the expense of those who want changes to get rid the corruption which he exemplifies. Let us see if the same policies and positions are enacted towards cases which involve the Arroyo and Marcos farmlands which are being disputed. The hypocrisy of this POS knows no shame.

    • yellow_zombies

      Great job Hacienda Luisita blogger. Don’t worry you will get a share of the 10 BILLION that the Cojuangcos are asking. LMAO. Peasants…

    • yellow_zombies

      Don Peping will be so proud of you. LOL

  • Russell Ariola

    Ganda noong mga plakards ow. at pare-pareho pa.

    Pera na naman ng $upreme court ang tinustos dyan. Tsk tsk!

  • yellow_zombies

    I see that the defenders of Hacienda Luisita landgrabbers and thieves are here in full force. LOL. Too bad they have met their match in CJ Corona. Don’t worry CJ Corona even if you are impeached you will still be a hero to these poor peasants and farmers. Meanwhile, that tenant in Malacanang got rich from the blood, toil, sweat and tears of poor farmers.

    I think the winners here are:

    1. The Hacienda Luisita Farmers

    2. Filipino people, as we saved P4.1billion from the order of the SC

    Let us use this money to protect our security against other country who wants to bully us on the West Philippines Sea
