No to oil palm plantations in the Philippines!

We gather here today to register the following calls:

End corporate-driven land grabbing! 
Uphold the people’s right to food, no to land use and crop conversion! 
Respect indigenous people’s right to a self-determined development! 
Respect labor rights, uphold workers’ right to organize unions and collective bargaining inside oil palm plantations and oil mills! 
Stop human rights violations, pull out military troops from oil-palm operation-affected communities! 
Ban hazardous chemicals and pesticide, uphold people’s right to health and a safe environment! 
Genuine agrarian reform and national industrialization, now!
