Women protest Rice Tariffication Law

Women members of the National Movement For Food Sovereignty (NMFS) and Pambansang Koalisyon ng Kababaihan sa Kanayunan stage a protest in front of the Department of Agriculture headquarters in Quezon City on Tuesday. The group called for the immediate repeal of the Rice Tariffication Law, which allegedly resulted in low buying prices of palay and falling incomes of around 2.4 million rice farmers in the country.
