The Land Issue Hits Home

CANVAS is a non-partisan organization. The linked article, however, obviously casts a major candidate in an unflattering light, so we wish to emphasize that this posting is not an endorsement, denouncement or a judgment for or against any candidate.

It makes, however, for a very interesting read. Land and farming, and the continuing unjust legacy of our feudal past, continues to define the lives of millions of Filipinos. As we like to say - there's a lot to think about when we talk about our national identity, and this New York Times article offers some starting points.
