Legarda Seeks Climate Justice for Kidapawan Farmers After Violent Dispersal

April 5, 2016

Senator Loren Legarda today called for climate justice for the victims of the violent dispersal of farmers’ protest action in Kidapawan City, which claimed the lives of at least three farmers and wounded several others.

“I condemn in the strongest terms this act against the farmers of Mindanao. A thorough investigation on the incident and the events that led to the protest must be undertaken. We seek climate justice for the farmers and other victims of the bloody dispersal because at the root of this incident is the climate-related drought that has affected the lives and livelihood of many farming communities,” said Legarda, Chair of the Senate Committee on Climate Change.
