Bigas (Song for Farmers)

On April 1, Filipino farmers asking for relief assistance due to ongoing drought were brutally dispersed by the police. Three farmers were killed, more than 80 are still missing and more than 100 were injured. This is a song condemning the government’s inaction on calamity and violent approach to its own citizens. ‪#‎FoodNotBullets‬ ‪#‎BigasHindiBala‬
