Bayan happy with Duterte’s foreign relations and peace talks policies

Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) Secretary-General Renato Reyes cites two important achievements in the first 100 days of Pres. Rodrigo Duterte’s administration — asserting Philippine sovereignty against US domination and resuming peace talks to address the roots of the armed conflict.

Reyes however added that Duterte’s anti-drug campaign needs socio-economic reforms and not killings.

Peasant leader Joseph Canlas stressed the need for revolutionary struggles by farmers for land reform and other democratic demands.

Thousands of farmers from various regions led by the Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas (KMP) trooped to Mendiola to mark Duterte’s first 100 days last October 8.
