This bill, was first filed in the 14th Congress by the late labor leader and Anakpawis Representative Crispin B. Beltran. It was re-filed in the 15th and 16th Congresses by peasant leaders and Anakpawis representatives Rafael V. Mariano and Fernando Hicap respectively.
GARB through the years has achieved the widest and strongest support from the Filipino peasantry, and necessarily so given that the ideas and spirit enshrined in its provisions have in fact come from their life and death struggle for land and justice.
We are once again submitting this bill in the 17th Congress to further push the demand for genuine agrarian reform and the realization of the Filipino peasantry’s emancipation from the centuries-old feudal bondage from the soil.
