CARP and moving on

I would like to congratulate all the farmers, the civil society groups for all the hardships they have to go through just to ensure the enactment of the law to prolong the life of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program. Another five years and with major salient provisions, that's a victory.

But victory is not that easy. Another farmer- leader, National Vice President of Pakisama was gunned done. He was Ka Renato “Rene” Peñas. I did not know him personally but his struggle has been carried on. Inspired by his works, the CARPER advocates fought bravely and shaken the halls of House of Representatives and call to them to get their acts together.

I am very happy that CARP is extended for five years. It's a good thing theirs a legislative finality for the farmers. As for my "personal madness", I have to say goodbye. I just get tired of the feeling of hanging on, of waiting and falling to nowhere. It's time to move on and yes, continue the struggle.
