*****************************************************************************************************

The Hacienda Luisita Massacre, Landlordism and State Terrorism in the Phillipines
with
Roy Mahinay, Pres. Ntl Federation of Sugar Workers
Dabet Castaneda, Staff Writer, Bulatlat.org


In a violent strike dispersal in Hacienda Luisita sugar plantation recently, 14 people were killed, including two children aged 2 and 5 years old As if in a war zone, combined elements of hundreds of military and police attacked the picketing workers and thousands of supporters. As they rammed into the workers’ barricade, the military and police used water cannons, high-powered rifles, truncheons and teargas to disperse the strikers and their supporters. More than 5,000 sugar mill workers and sugarcane farmers of Hacienda Luisita, which is owned by ex-Pres.
Aquino, went on strike Nov. 6, barricading the gates to the sugar mill. More than the issue of wages, land distribution is the major demand of Hacienda Luisita workers. The strike arose from the deadlock in the
negotiations for a contract and the illegal dismissal of 327 workers.
