THIS LAND IS YOURS Agrarian Reform Secretary Virgilio de los Reyes leads a group of government officials, including Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala, Human Rights Commissioner Etta Rosales and Antipoverty Chairman Joel Rocamora, during a distribution of certificates of land ownership to farmers in Mulanay, Quezon, on Wednesday. DELFIN T. MALLARI JR./INQUIRER SOUTHERN LUZON

MULANAY, Quezon—Despite a warrant for his arrest, Rodolfo Pagatpat, 60, a tenant at the vast Villa Reyes in nearby San Narciso town, on Wednesday joined an estimated 5,000 farmers from the Bondoc Peninsula at the distribution of  certificates of land ownership award (CLOA) under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).

“I have to be here to witness the culmination of our long and painful struggle to own the land that we have been tilling for several generations,” Pagatpat told the Inquirer at a parking lot in this rustic town on the edge of Tayabas Bay.

According to Jansept Geronimo, campaign officer of the Quezon Association for Rural Development and Democratization, which has been helping the farmers, the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) distributed CLOAs for 480 hectares of the vast farmland owned by the scions of the late Don Domingo Reyes in the towns of San Narciso, Buenavista and San Andres.

“There will be another distribution of 120 hectares in March and another 524 hectares in June. There is no more legal impediment to its distribution,” Geronimo said.

Records of the Kilusang Magbubukid ng Bondoc Peninsula (KMBP) show that 303 criminal cases, mostly for the qualified theft of coconuts, have been filed against 223 tenants who complained of harassment by several landlords whose estates were under CARP coverage.

One of the victims of harassment was Pagatpat, who said he has been living in the mountains since 2006 to avoid authorities. “Once I am arrested, I have to shell out close to P100,000 for my bail, which I don’t have. But I’m not in hiding. I’m just living far from my family,” he said.

Agrarian hot spot

Pagatpat said his son would receive the CLOA for him, which would entitle him to the legal ownership of three hectares of land. His niece Rosita, 56, a tenant of Villa Reyes for the past 40 years, also received her CLOA for more than one hectare of land.

In between sobs, she said she had spent time in jail for the “unjust charge of stealing coconuts which our forebears had planted.”

Mulanay is regarded as one of the “agrarian hot spots” in the Bondoc Peninsula because of landowner resistance and the land distribution ceremony was a symbolic gesture of the government’s sincerity in pushing ahead with the agrarian reform program expiring in 2014.

The farmers traveled from different towns and assembled at the town entrance since early morning. They later marched toward the town plaza for the distribution of the CLOAs by a government delegation led by Agrarian Reform Secretary Virgilio de los Reyes and included Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala, Commission of Human Rights Chairperson Etta Rosales and National Anti-Poverty Commission Chairman Joel Rocamora.

In a short dialogue under the scorching noonday sun, farmer Myrna Fontamillas of Barangay (village) Lakdayan, San Narciso, engaged the government officials in an argument on why the agrarian reform beneficiaries still had to pay for the land.

In the end, apparently convinced by the explanation of government representatives, the woman hugged and kissed Alcala in gratitude while the rest of the farmers and officials applauded.

End to Bondoc disputes

De los Reyes said the distribution was only the beginning. “The government will bring to an end the agrarian disputes in the Bondoc Peninsula,” he told newsmen.

He said the DAR was now speeding up land distribution under CARP, particularly those lands with “notice of coverage.” He said this would continue even after CARP ends. He said that nothing in the law stated that the DAR could not distribute CARP-covered lands beyond June 2014.

The DAR’s P21-billion budget for 2013 covers land acquisition and distribution; and includes more than P2.3 billion for support services, up from P800 million this year.

Joyous farmers

“The farmers are all joyous. Most of them shed tears when they were informed of this land distribution event,” said Maribel Luzara, KMBP president.

The agrarian reform initiative was initiated by President Aquino’s late mother, then President Corazon Aquino, on June 10, 1988, as the centerpiece of a social justice program to lift farmers from poverty and eliminate one of the causes of a lingering communist insurgency.

On Aug. 7, 2009, then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo signed into law Republic Act No. 9700, or the Carper (CARP extension with reforms) Law. This extended CARP for another five years with a total budget of P150 billion.

    if DAR is determined to distribute lands to the landless, then DAR should look into the land distribution conducted in Negros Island and in parts of Mindanao. there are lands that have been issued with CLOAs that are still being tilled by the land owners who already received payment for their lands. while the beneficiaries are no where to be found! even ancestral domain lands and public lands have been issue CLOAs. many MAROs and PAROs and Regional AROs have made money out of the VOS scheme. many former DAR employees are now owners of large tracts of prime land.

    This news relegates the recent CBCP pastoral letter as unfounded rumblings from a group trying to be relevant again. These bishops are really better off in reinventing themselves with projects to bring back to the flock the lost sheep than being political mercenaries. 

    • wawa2172

      You miss the point on CBCP pastoral letter as it was read ahead of land distribution by DAR. PNoy and De Los Reyes are reactive and not proactive as far as land reform is concern. As if the pastoral letter was unfounded by the distribution of the lands, mali ka tsong,  minadali ang pag distribute nang mga lupa for Pnoy to save the head of de los Reyes and announcing that the government is pro-poor. I would suggest that the CBCP make a follow up on their pastoral letter targeting the hacienda Luisita which is owned by the family and relatives of Noy. The dismissal of  de los Reyes for inefficiency would be a big blow to Noy admin so to save his  high rating the land was distributed as I have said in haste. PNoy is a brothers keerper and he personally knows the inefficiency of some of his cabinet members.

      • crisostomo_ibarra_the3rd

        I tend to think it the other way. The CBCP, in trying to make itself relevant in the light of the recent scandals of their erring priests in sex scandals, trying to project that because of their pastoral letter, CARP is working. You are one of the gullible people who thinks that distributing hectares of land can be done in one week. These process especially in the Bondoc peninsula if you do not know, has been pending for years due to the landlord’s resistance. The DAR is simply doing its job regardless of what the CBCP is saying. That is the reason, these bishops should stick to their mandate and try to recover its lost sheep not at the expense of the government. They should clean their own backyard before they attempt to clean their neighbor’s backyard. That’s tresspassing.

      • wawa2172

        The church and the government are always rocked with scandals like immorality and corruption. You may be a fan of DAR but since its creation its performance is way below as expected.. Distributing hectares of land can be done in one week? Hey those lands that were place under CARP has been ready for distribution years ago pero walang ngipin ang DAR to perform its work. The distribution of 480 hectares to farmer beneficiary is a good news but there is a catch to it. It was distributed for election purposes and the timing is almost perfect. Ito ang pwedi nating sabihin na weeks before election ipinamodmod ang mga titulo nang lupa. DAR did well under GMA reign too though she is very unpopular and Luisita now ready for distribution but why the delay? Ang galit no PNoy kay Pandak ay malaking bahagi ang Luisita. Mag kakampi ang mga Aquino at Arroyo then until the Pandak admin work for the distribution of Luisita to farmers. Pinatangal nga ni Noy si Corona as CJ dahil he was the chief magistrate of the SC then.

      • crisostomo_ibarra_the3rd

        It can be distributed kamo in one week? Sabihin mo nga sa akin ang isang concrete example ng lupang nasakop ng DAR at na distribute in one week from identification to verification to actual awarding of land title? If you can do that saludo ako sa yo. If not, you better keep your peace because it will show na puro hangin lang ang laman mo.

      • wawa2172

        Taga DAR ka siguro kaya inis ka sa akin or owner nang vast land to be distributed to farmers din. Utak ang laman nang ulo at hindi hangin, I am a certified homo sapien at nasa censos ako nang NSO. Again, if the government can distribute 480 hectares of lands under carp in time of election bakit…..tinapat sa election. I tell you the government can do it a week to process the land distribution, why? ang tagal na nasa archives nang  DAR ang mga lupang dapat ipamahagi. Is it moving? My answer is anybody’s guess. Mararami lang ang dahilan kaya walang nangyayari. My suggestion, scrap the CARP so people like you will be able to sleep well.

      • mon key

        preparing the documents for land distribution is not an easy task. if you thing that the land were distributed just to spite CBCP, then it shows that you have such a shallow mind. you are trying to paint the CBCP as having the moral authority to tell the President what to do, when in fact the CBCP has been quiet on how the senate and congress has been doing their job. CBCP does not want to antagonize legislators so that the church can continue to influence them. and you only see the CBCP as always right and the president always at fault. c’mon! you must be so blinded!

      • Paliwaweng

        ….and the CBCP is quiet on the vast hectares of friar lands that they grabbed from the Filipinos. Kapalit ng krusipiho.

  • GOPHILIPPINESGO

    Mainam!

    Siguradong hindi matatapus ang term ni PNoy sya mismo ang mamimigay ng titulo para sa mga benepisyaryo ng hacienda luisita.

    Steady ka lang dyan secretary de los reyes para tuloy tuloy.

    There are legitimate claimants of CARP program, but some of them are opportunists. The distinction between the two claimants is not well discerned because of the distribution target that DAR employees have to achieve. Because of this distribution target, farm threshold size is not well determined which means whether  the size of the land given to a beneficiary is sufficient enough to produce in order to meet the basic needs of the household such as food, clothing, shelter and education. There are cases of over parcelization which means the size of land a beneficiary received is less than the farm threshold size particularly in non-irrigated upland areas where productivity is much lower than in lowland irrigated areas or sugarcane lands. About 70% of the CARP beneficiaries are receiving below the threshold size of farm profitability in the context of economy scale or lack of farm intensification technology or capital. Thus, most of these beneficiaries sold their lands to people who can afford to consolidate in order achieve farm profitability through economy of scale or better technology.  In this context, DAR program is just a “parcelization-consolidation-parcelization” game. Without looking more in depth into this issue, DAR land distribution is a failed program and a complete waste of government resources.  

  • UrHONOR

    SSSAAAAAARRRRRAP naman nyan….pa-rally-rally lang, e, LUPA na kaagad!

    Sabi ng CBCPPP……”HOY!  HINDI pa tama yan, if ya konw what we mean.  Marami pang mga Pilipino na walang lupa (na sinamsam ng mga hind. na kastila noon at pinamigay sa mga damasing)!  QUIDAO lang kayo na huwag-na-huwag ninyo IDADAMAY ang lupa ng Panginoon, ha.”  (yan si bisyap Pablo dos Panginoon).

    480 hectares lang?

    Taking the silver spoon out of the mouth of the landed class is always a long and arduous process. In other countries, it took several bloody revolutions before they succeeded. It will take many more insurgencies, many more massacred landless farmers, many more slaughtered sacred cows before this country succeeds in shedding off and putting its feudal past behind. Land redistribution is redistribution of wealth in a society, from the immensely rich to the vast majority of unwashed and disenfranchised poor. The landed class and the ruling elite sipping Jamaican coffee in the house of congress, speechifying in the halls of the senate, trading favors in the offices of the palace by the river and handing out verdicts in the dark chambers of the Supreme Court all have a huge stake in this. They who have benefited for so long from the inequitable distribution of wealth in a land so blessed with a wealth of natural resources will not give up their upperhand without putting up a fight. They have the upperhand, the have the silver spoon and the wherewithal and they don’t mind fighting dirty. It also doesn’t help that the Catholic Church has not always been consistent in its crusade for social justice judging by its 500 years history in this country.

    There is hope in the headway made by DAR. But the road to real land reform is long and treacherous. It is neither clear-cut nor straight nor Daang Matuwid. PNoy has his promises to keep, and miles to go before he sleeps, miles to go before he sleeps.

  • entong238

    This is the price of diligence and never say die action of the Catholic Bishops to act as mouth pieces of the poor farmers in their quest to achieve their rightful claims. Their sacrifices paid of and for that my kudos to you bishops. May you continue to be the vanguard of these embattled farmers 

    • EOJ

       With or without the church those land will be distributed. the processing of the papers simply takes time.

        And if we’re going to go to your “points” that were downright juvenile and incredibly distanced from logic, then fine. YES, DAR has a job, and that is to redistribute vast tracts of land owned by the natives before they were unjustly taken from them. To say that all lands should be distributed (as you have mentioned) is the height of irresponsibility and will push the Philippines towards communism. As idealistic as communism is, it doesn’t work because it centralizes all power on to a central figure who then corrupts the minds of the public (see North Korea, Cuba, China).

        If all these purported 500,000 hectares that you mentioned are earmarked to be redistributed, then how in the world would you expect them all to be redistributed in the span of one year? That is, once again, at the height of irresponsibility, for how in the world would anyone actually be able to enforce that? what? Take away our hardworking military from defending our country to guard tracts of wilderness? Kapos na nga ang military natin eh!

        I’d suggest you be the one to think first of all the consequences, or better yet, educate yourself fully before speaking insanity in public forums. It only shows your katangahan.

        Right, it is positively the best idea, according to you, to sell to any farmer who has the money to buy the land. Now, hmmm, that sounds good, where’s the problem? Only short-minded fools like you won’t see a problem to that. Anyone can sneak into the labour roll and be listed as a farmer. Even a rebel NPA may pose as a farmer, or even, extort families into giving their share of the land forcibly. Hindi mo pinag-isipan to no? Malamang kasi napakakitid ng isipan.

        And again, do I have to repeat myself? Do you really know what you are talking about?

        You have more leftist views than Aquino has. You want to distribute things that are best left to better judgment and apt timing rather than kung kailan lang.

        I would expound more on these issues but really, these would be a waste on a mind like yours.

        Pati ba Tagalog hindi ka nakakaintindi? Saan sa kumento ko ang sinabi kong “wag na lang ipamigay ang lupain ng magsasaka” dahil wala silang pera?

        Ang sabi ko: “paano mong paniniguradong pupunta nga sa magsasaka iyang lupain na yan?
        Hayaan na sila pagkatapos gastusin ang buong pamumuhay nila?”

        Iyon ay pansagot sa iyong makitid na pananaw na madali lang magdistribute ng lupa, “INFORM
        THE OWNER

        SABIHIN ANG REASONABLE PRICE

        PIRMA

        TAPOS”
        (barok ka na nga sa Ingles, hindi pa nakakaintindi ng Tagalog)

        Para sa iyo, gawin nating simple ang issue. May haciendero. May magsasaka. May middleman (DAR). Gagastusin ng magsasaka ang pamumuhay nila para makabili ng lupain (pwes hulugan man yan o hindi, pamumuhay pa rin ang gagastusin nila). Responsable pa ba? Supposedly, makukuha ng magsasaka ang lupain. Kung sabay-sabay yang 300,000-500,000 hectares na pinambabanggit mo dyan pinag-distribute, tiyak na hindi pupunta yan sa magsasaka. Kawawa lang sila.

        Intindihin mo! Bumalik ka na sa eskwelahan, sa pre-school muna ah! Wag mag drugs kasi mukhang baliw ang dating sa iyo nyan (baliw ka na rin naman).

        By the way, ang tamang figure ay 3000 hectares kada taon. (500,000 hectares kada taon = 5 Hong Kongs every year given out to farmers?)

        You are quite possibly, THE dumbest person I have ever responded to.

    I have no problem of land distribution with farmers it is good thing to do. the problem is not all of the farmers will tilt the land nor produce of they are dreaming for. At the end these farmers will try to sell the piece of the land to have a money for their basic needs. Nobody is doing farming any more because they sell the land and nothing to farm. I saw this cycle before.

    the farmers had no capital to finance his farming needs, so punta sa middle man para makautang ng abono at iba pa. ilang prosiento ng kayang ani ay pambayad sa utang na sobrang mahal. Wala siyang marketing so punta naman sa trader para ipagbili ang kanyang ani sa mababang presyo. Sa bandang huli lahat ng hirap niya ang nakinabang ay iba. patuloy pa rin ang padhihirap niya sa kadhilanan walang malking kita. kaya ipinag bili ang lupa para makabili ng dyip at motor na trisikel pang negosyo. Dyip para biyahe at trisikel sa pangpasahero. wala na sa kanila ang nagsasaka. paglipas ng ilang taon nasira na ang dyip at trisekel . Wala ng panghanap buhay balik ulit sa pagsasaka sa ibang farmer na umasenso na Sa kalaunan mo humihingi ulit ng lupang kanilang isasaka. I saw this many many times at different situation but the same story lines. 

    • farmerpo

       Right on the money. Land changing hands and ending up owned by another  big landowner.

    • scorpio15

      Agree ako dyan 100%.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_SFB5YVDI2R4WV4HWFV24GXLN5M Sam

      small lands are less productive because of marginal cost. If land is owned by big farmers they get lower costs because of high capitalization and decreasing marginal cost. So if you have 100 separate hectares of rice field it will result to more expensive rice compared to a solid 100 hectare singly managed field. That is a basic problem with our farming system and is further aggravated by some laws. Anybody will agree that a well-developed agricultural system operates on a low cost mass production and well-managed farmlands with big capital outlays.

    Si Bistek, Mayor ng Q.C., sabi niya last year “No CCTV, no Business Permit. O, bakit nagbulagbulagan siya at ibinigay din niya ang Business Permit kahit na walang CCTV? Ganoon din, sabi niya noong Sept. 15, 2012, tangalin lahat ng EPAL sa Q.C., tapos siya, binaha niya ang Q.C. ng sarili niyang EPAL. Ay naku! Itong mga politiko nga naman, mga taong hindi pwedeng pagkatiwalaan.

Namigay ba naman ng isang damukal na patrol car at baril sa PNP samantalang may budget naman ang PNP. Sa tutuo, nagorder ang PNP ng billions of pesos na armas nila galing sa Israel. O, bakit pa magbibigay si Bistek, Mayor of Q.C. Ganoon din, namigay ng 147 Foton, Chinese made Vans worth P176,000 per vehicle sa bawat Barangay sa Q.C. E, ang siste, isang damukal na ang political issued vehicles sa Barangay namin. Sayang ang pera. The donations amounted to 174 million pesos for nothing.

    Daming pagwawaldas dito sa Q.C. at the expense of tax payers. That is why I, an ordinary citizen will challenge him. He he he.

Obviously birds of a feather flock together. It never stated that Bong offered his shrimp c0cktail, just your lame imagination at work. The point is to shame these depraved perverted souls who attack those who want change for the good, while guys like Bong and Enrile slip each other million pesos checks with a wink at each other, while kids go hungry and cold in the aftermath of the storms, and instead of building them shelters and feeding them, these blights on the Philippine People carry on in their corrupt and delusional ways.

    This is another propaganda blitz of P-noy’s mouthpieces to placate the CBCP’s equally misguided concern about CARP.  One should go to the vast lands ALREADY awarded to the farmers-beneficiaries and see if CARP uplifted their well being.  The lands are less productive, the farmers are still poor, in some cases even poorer.  Agricultural production is no longer competitive because of lack of economies of scale. Now we are IMPORTERS of sugar, onions, garlic which make the CUSTOMS  and smugglers  very happy.  CARP is a failure and our politicians made it so.

    “The farmers are all joyous. Most of them shed tears when they were informed of this land distribution event,” said Maribel Luzara, KMBP president.
    Sooner than later, farmers will sell their lands cheap to wanting Chinese businessmen who will convert the land to subdivision, factories or mall. Now tell me, is CARP successful?

  • Mario_Garcia

    The government showed political will to distribute land to the landless, now the government has to designate its Agriculture Department to assist the farmer landowners in the maintaining and boosting productivity of the land through technology and education.  The government should have a macro plan for this matter.

    Why are only the Filipinos being ordered by the government to submit to the agrarian reform?

    Henry Sy, Peping Cojuanco, Danding Cojuanco, Lucio Tan, Gokongwei, Concepcion, Go and many Chinese who became Filipino citizens have taken away lands long been in possession of and tilled by Filipinos.  These Chinese who now have a tight stranglehold of the resources of our country, determine how land reform is to be carried out.  In this system that they have determined, it is the Filipinos who are herded in to fight among themselves for lands.  Ultimately, the beneficiaries will end up losing due to absence of an infrastructure to make tilling of the land work for the farmers and the food consumers.  Ultimately, more of these lands will end up in the hands of these Chinese with Filipino Citizenship.  Ultimately, they end up having tighter stranglehold of and Filipinos losing ownership of our country.

    If land reform is to work, lands in possession by Chinese who acquired Filipino citizenship in the 1970s or during the Marcos era should be confiscated by the Filipinos.  Most of them acquired Filipino citizenship thru corruption.  It was during the Martial Law of Marcos that many Chinese were able to acquire Filipino citizenship.  It is they who have displaced many original and real Filipinos from the land of their forefathers.  

    For foreigners who acquired Filipino citizenship in the 1940s to the 1970s thru bad ethical means, including bribery, tax evasion, smuggling, drug trafficking, human trafficking, unfair labor practice, cartel, substandard services and products, and unfair business competition, the lands they acquired should be confiscated.  For those who acquired citizenship during the same period but through good ethical processes, lands of not more than 1 hectare will be retained for them.  However, their children cannot inherit these lands.  It will be returned back to the government which means to Filipinos.  

    For those foreigners who acquired citizenship and then lands in the Philippines through the right ethical process between the 1900s and the 1940s, the lands in their possession will remain in their ownership.  Their first generation children can inherit not more than 7 hectares of their land through the present legal set-up.  Those more than 7 hectares, will be paid of inheritance tax 200% of the appraised value.  The second generation children will pay 400% of the appraised value for inheritance tax for the lands inherited by the 1st generation children.  The 3rd generation will pay for the same land 800% of the appraised value for inheritance tax.  For those who acquired through unethical process, lands in their possession will be confiscated.  

    This can recover hundreds of thousands of hectares back to Filipinos from foreigners.  Huge amount of money can be generated to fund infrastructures to support the tilling of the land by Filipino farmers and sustain it.  Only real and original Filipinos with justification can retain ownership of huge lands.  Only foreigners who became Filipino citizens without any anomalous means can retain their lands but this time not anymore of avaricious sizes like that of the present foreigners who legitimized their status in possession of the whole nation and turned them into their own properties.

      Tama ka sa lahat ng sinabi mo pre. Sad to say, all major businesses and also all high government positions in the three branches of our government, the Legislative, and the Judiciary are all controlled by Filipino-Chinese whose ancestors came here for just one reason. They are all economic migrants. They do not care about the welfare of the Filipinos, they are here to exploit. Now, almost everything is owned by the Chinese. Worst, PNoy’s policy of PPP or Public Private Partnership was formulated and implemented for just one objective which is to transfer ALL assets  that belong to the Filipinos. 

      This is the reason why we remain the sick man of Asia because ALL our resources including the dollar remittances of our OFW are siphoned and smuggled out of the country and similarly remitted to China. We will never take off the ground. The only reason our GNP went up to 6.6% is because of the massive sales of government assets and massive spending on infrastructure. What if all our assets have been sold, and we have nothing to sell anymore?. One day, we will wake up and the whole country is no longer ours. 

      There are many traitors in high position of our government. Remember, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and House Speaker Belmonte Jr. planned to go ahead with the economic provision of the CHA-CHA even if it is not yet a law and legalize the 100% capitalization of all businesses here, then, they will legalize Chinese to own our land. Right now, Nueva Ecija rice granary is no longer in the hands of the Farmers. The Farmers loan their land to the Chinese because the cost of production like planting, cost of fertilizers, insecticides, everything went up. It is way above their means. So they mortgage their agricultural land to the Chinese, and if unable to pay, presto! The land now belongs to the Chinese. Easy money for the Chinese. From the start, the implementation of land reform in Nueva Ecija was not complete. After the tenants were awarded of their land, the government should have provide farm to market road, provide cheap insecticides, fertilizer,and hybrid seeds, and also extend loans. He ehh e. the government negate in its duty to provide these basic services,consequently, the farmers became victims of the Chinese. Sooner or later, the Chinese will take over all our agricultural lands.

      PNoy is committing TREASON, a traitor! In his oath as President, he took a vow to protect our Constitution and our sovereignty. He did not abide with his solemn vow. Instead, he embark in selling all government assets. That’s how a traitor he is. Imagine, our Public Hospitals, Ambuklao Dam, Food Terminal Inc. where food are stored to stabilze the price, he he he. All sold our. He also intended to sell PAGCOR which is earning 34 billion pesos a month. Why? It’s good that the term of donation of Port Aguinaldo and Camp Crame was to be use “exclusively for military purposes ONLY. Otherwise, itong si suapang, munti kang pinagbili narin. Ang hirap sa ating mga Pinoy, hindi natin pinagtatangol ang ating karapatan. We are the people, public service is a public trust, Kung hindi makikinig si Pinoy, we have the last resort, if you know what I mean, that is will go again in the street. For me, right now, I have a personal fight against the mismanagement and abuses here in Q.C. LGU. Mantakin mo, the Mayor’s Permit here in Q.C. is P15,000 per year just for one year! Tinamaan nag kulugo! The Mayor’s Permit in Calamba City and Olongapo City is only P500 per year. Bakit, ginto ba ang buhok ng taga Q.C. That is why I am running as Independent Mayor in Q.C. Kahit na mahina ang financial ko, LABAN! He he he. Bilog ang bola. Malay mo, baka matalisod ang mga corrupt sa Q.C.

    This is a good start!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_SFB5YVDI2R4WV4HWFV24GXLN5M Sam

    small lands are less productive because of marginal cost. If land is owned by big farmers they get lower costs because of high capitalization and decreasing marginal cost. So if you have 100 separate hectares of rice field it will result to more expensive rice compared to a solid 100 hectare singly managed field. That is a basic problem with our farming system and is further aggravated by some laws. Anybody will agree that a well-developed agricultural system operates on a low cost mass production and well-managed farmlands with big capital outlays. At the end of the day will you still recommend cutting rice fields and farmlands into smaller and smaller pieces. Will it really solve our expensive rice and shortage?

If you have an iota of a brain the HLI issue is still in the SC. And he can’t do anything even if he is an owner, he is just one of the owner. But I agree with you that it take too long to resolve the issue. But if you can use your brain. Think about this, if our president is “ungas” as you have said how come he was able to get the ASO of GMA in SC impeached and pass the RH law going againts the power of CBCP, increase the collection of BIR to 1T and reduce (not eradicate) corruption?

  • Platypus09

    Personally, I don’t think that the new generation of Filipinos out there do care about having lands in the far away areas for toiling and planting rice from dawn to dusk.

    Most of them just want a job, a family, a small peice of land where they can build a comfortable house that they can buy in subdivisions, and live comfortably.
     
    I am not sure if this land distribution is still relevant nowadays or in the next few decades. .

    • pinoypower

      Somehow, somewhere, someone has to till the lands or we’ll all be hungry. Computers, modern gadgets and other technological advancements cannot feed us. In the end we’ll have to depend on the farmers for our nourishments. I understand the hardships in the farms because I was once a farmer but you know what. A few years from now when I retire, I intend to go back where I started at the slopes of Mt. Banahaw. I miss the cool breeze, the abundant and fresh fruits and vegetables like guavas, rambutans, bananas, coconuts, kamotes, gabi, labong, langka and many more. As my late father used to sing:” Kung ang hanap mo ay ligaya sa buhay, sa libis ng nayon doon maniharan…”

      • Platypus09

        Good for you and the entire Philippines if you feel like toiling those lands upon retirement.

        I can see those who used to plow those fields before when they were young would do that.

        But what about those who grew up with nintendos and computer gadgets, am not sure if they will do that when they retire.

        Don’t get me wrong, we do need farmers and agriculturists, but their numbers are dwindling as years go by.

      • pinoypower

        Actually, I will not be toiling the lands again when I retire. Too old for that but I will reside in the place where I grew up and help the farmers there to earn more from their lands through better farming practice and marketing of their products. Most of our farmers are poor compared to other farmers like in the US and around the world because they do not realize the full earning potentials in the farm. As for me I have no intention of doing that myself but only to show the framers how to do it.
        The cool and clean air as well as the fresh fruits and vegetables will be good and enough for an old man like me.

    • ed_nique

      you must be an urban guy … no offense meant. but this is what i can assume based on your 2nd line. your outlook in life is confined to one who lives in an urban area.

      in the rural areas we still have families whose lives are centered on the land that they work on. for many of them, this is the life they were brought up in. they are the nth generation in their family working those lands. lands that do not belong to them.

      they have dreams and ambitions, they too want their children to grow up with better lives than what they have at present. they work very hard to send their children to school.

      there are some success stories with these children. whether they become well-off or just enough, they buy farm lands! they go back from where they came from. if their parents were able to care for them from the hard work they put to land that did not belong to them, how much more for a land that is now theirs.

      • kagbalete

        I have a feeling that you are also from the urban area and has no idea as to how things are in the agricultural sector. The size of land distributed is less than a hectare….. my family used to be in the coconut farming industry, and knowing the output of a given hectare of coconut land,  there is no way that one hectare can support a family….. most of the coconut lands in Quezon are now unproductive, with the children of these farmers going someplace else to try their luck (either overseas or become one of the squatters in the NCR.  Part of the problem is the low prices of copra in the international market….  most of the former land lords have moved on to other businesses  where the return on  investment is way higher….  

  • pinoypower

    I wish these new landowners will finally stop from being Leftists and NPA sympathizers and concentrate on improving their lives. Coming from a farming family in Quezon myself, I can understand the hardships that they have undergone although I chose the easier way out. Instead of struggling and fighting to get the land which didn’t belong to us in the first place, I went to educate myself and the rest of my siblings and became succesful enough so that we were able to buy lands bigger than what we would have spent our lifetime fighting for.
    Anyway, all is well that ends well for the farmers of Quezon and for me whichever paths we chose.

    It SOUNDS good, but realistically it may not be enough for many of them to survive.  A hectare is a lot of land, but it isn’t THAT much, and I don’t see too many ways for a small farmer to compete effectively with larger farms.

    nabatukan lang etong si delosreyes kaya nagmamadaling umepal. 
    basta di lupa ng cojuangco ang bilis ipamigay. 

  • Leo Capurictan

    Akala ko yong sa hacienda Lusisita na yon, iba pala ang ipinamigay

    …talagang ayaw ipamigay ang Hacienda Luisita!!! Tuso talaga itong mga taga DAR, hehe…

  • disqusted0fu

    It’s about darn time! DAR Sec. de los Reyes has to be pushed and threatened hard first before actually making things happen. After noynoying for almost 3 years, he finally moves. We shall see though if he can and will do the same for the Pnoy protected Hacienda Luisita

  • boybakal

    DAR distributes 480 ha… I am about to say….Good, yon pala Villa Reyes not Hacienda Luisita.
    Kawawang Landlord….wala kasing politikong angkan para protectahan ang property nila.

  • crisostomo_ibarra_the3rd

    Una hindi ako taga DAR. Hindi mo kailangang maging taga DAR para malamang mali ka. Common sense lang na hindi one week ang tanging kailangan to process a CARP land for distribution.

    Pangalawa, hindi ako inis sa yo. I just want to correct your misrepresentation.

    Pangatlo, dahil taga census ka, alam mo ang takbo ng pamahalaan kasama ang red tape kaya mali ka sa pagsabi na 1 week lang ang kailangan to distribute a CARP land.

    Pangatlo, hindi sapat na dahilan na election time para hindi magtrabaho ang government employee so dapat lang na tuloy tuloy ang trabaho sa  DAR, DPWH, DSWD, DECS at iba pa.

    Pangapat, dahil wala kang naibigay na concrete example na patunay na one week lang ang kailangan to implement CARP distribution, manahimik ka na lang. Hangin lang yang nasa utak mo. Promise.

    bakit nauna pa yun sa bondoc peninsula, how about the Hacienda Luisita, kailan ibibigay sa mga beneficiaries…..

    • PinoyPower1

       simply because walang flip flop ng corona supreme court na nangyari sa kaso nila. In the case of the HLI, the SC flip flop caused much delay. the corona court first decided in favor of the stocks option and after 2 years flip flopped. then they have to start from scratch.

      • Masterful Deceit

        PinoyPower1, get your facts straight.

        The stock option was found to be a failure by the Presidential Agraraian Reform Council in 2005 and ordered dissolved. Hacienda Luisita filed for a TRO in the SC in 2006 which it granted. Hacienda Luisita Inc successfully prolonged the TRO. But when Corona became Chief Justice in 2010 the TRO was revoked and a landmark decision was finally decided in favor of the farmers.

        The Corona Supreme Court NEVER flipped flopped on the Hacienda Luisita. It was the only Court to take a stand and finally nail the coffin on the Cojuancos’ hold on Luisita.GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT.

        Do you even know what flip flop means?

        Ibibintang mo pa sa SC ang problema e kung ano anong pagmamaneobra ang ginawa ng mga Cojuangco para lang mapanatili nila ang Hacienda Luisita sa kamay nila for more than half a decade!

  • PinoyPower1

    Siguradong tuloy tuloy na to! 

  • JasonBieber

    You’d hope things in the government departments would be achieved without having to be preceded by a call for one’s resignation.

    This may be the first distribution of any kind under the PNoy administration. Coincidentally it comes in election season…so based on this i guess this may be it for a while huh?

    And also when will PNoy’s Hacienda Luisita be distributed to the poor farmers? We shouldn’t get our hopes up on that huh?

  • yesyesyo

    More power to DAR and PNoy!

    Compared to all the haters and crabs here, I believe and trust PNoy.

       What about the Hacienda Luisita ?

  • Rolly257

    The government should bring logistics in to assist the recipients in tilling their lands.

    Hopefully the very vast Hacienda Luisita be distributed to these true owners, the farmers who have been promised since President Magsaysay.
