ACT Teachers Rep. Antonio Tinio on the arrest and detention of ANAKPAWIS Rep. Fernando Hicap in Hacienda Luisita

Why has the Tarlac PNP arrested Cong. Hicap? Is it to prevent him from questioning the Department of Agrarian Reform during the upcoming budget debate? Is the Aquino administration that he will expose the ongoing rights abuses in the President’s beloved Hacienda Luisita? Why is the genuine representative of farmers deprived of his liberty while pork plunderers continue to roam free? We demand his immediate release along with his companions. ###
