Caption

Farmers of the Hacienda Luisita community received some members of the WCC sponsored Living Letters delegation on Friday 3 December 2010. The farmers have been demanding land rights promised to them for the past fifty years.
Hacienda Luisita is in the central plains of Luzon. The land has been owned and controlled by the powerful Cojuangco family since 1957. The current president, Benigno Cojuangco Aquino III, belongs to this family. Hacienda Luisita comprises 6,435 hectares of sugar cane plantations. Although the Cojuangco family took over the property on an understanding that the land would be given back to farmers after a period of 10 years, this has not happened and there is no sign that it will happen soon.
