To All Who Defend the Rights to Food and Health, Peasant Farmers’ Rights, Women’s Rights, Indigenous Peoples’ Rights, All who believe in Environmental, Climate, Social and Economic Justice, and All who seek an End to Militarization of Rural Communities:

Peasant farmers and Indigenous Peoples are calling for international attention to the urgent situation of land grabbing, militarization and the pending destruction of local small farm lands to make way for the establishment of 11, 000 hectares of monocrop sugar cane plantations and processing facilities for a biofuel project in the municipality of San Mariano in Isabela, Philippines.

Take action now to support their efforts! Sign the online petition that will be sent directly to government authorities and chief executive officers of the companies involved in the biofuel project:
