Justice for farmers

Farmers belonging to the National Federation of Sugar Workers wear masks and bear signs denouncing the government and the ownership of Hacienda Luisita as they gather at Mendiola Bridge in Manila on Friday. They marked the 14th anniversary of the massacre of seven sugar workers at the sugar plantation in Tarlac, and also called for justice for nine other sugarcane farmers killed in Sagay, Negros Occidental last Oct. 20.
