Philippine farmers fight for land rights

Ten years have passed since several farmers were shot dead while protesting at estate owned by president's family.

    Families of seven farmers killed ten years ago while protesting on a sugar estate owned by President Benigno Aquino's family say they continue to face harassment.

    The Supreme Court has ordered the president’s family to redistribute its vast plantation to poor farmers, but locals say justice is just too slow.
