On November 16, 2004, the thousands-strong striking farm workers of Hacienda Luisita, after days of halting production at the Cojuangco-owned sugar-processing zone in Luzon, were met with bullets by the brutal Philippine military. The shocking incident occured under the regime Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, and goes uninvestigated and unresolved by the Philippine government.

The fight for fair and even land distribution is still at the center of the human rights crisis in the Philippines. Join us for a night of remembrance of the martyrs of Luisita and all farmers in the Philippines who continue to struggle for land to call their own.

Organized by the NY Committee for Human Rights in the Philippines, a member group of BAYAN USA
