There goes the flak

With the government’s move to transfer the Department of Agrarian Reform to Davao City comes this flak drawn from the idea itself.

Many sectors questioned the idea, even some peasant groups who doubted the transfer as a cosmetic solution to the country’s ailing agrarian reform system.
