Protesters condemn arrest of farmers in Tarlac

Farmers groups and advocates stage a protest on Friday at the Department of Agrarian Reform headquarters in Quezon City to condemn the arrest and demand the release of 92 people arrested in Tarlac yesterday after a group of activists, cultural workers, and local farmers tried to cultivate a piece of disputed land in Tinang village. The incident happened just as the 34th anniversary of the Comprehensive Land Reform Program (CARP) is being observed.
