EDITORIAL : This land is mine

The Bayambang land issue is a history of who owns land or should it be “Who shall the land own?”

First, the land owned the people…like you are named Procopio of Bautista or Jose of Tarlac.

Meaning, Bautista owned Procopio or Procopio belonged to Bautista while Tarlac owned Jose or Jose belonged to Tarlac.

Next came titles to property through the Torrens Title System.

People began to own lands and institutions like the government, military and churches also began to own lands.

This land belongs to Procopio…This land belongs to Jose…This land belongs to the Republic of the Philippines…This land belongs to the Armed Forces of the Philippines…This land belongs to the Roman Catholic Church.

The people and institutions who were able to own property were the informed ones and the learned ones.

Those who were not aware of the new Titling System just went on with their lives and were of the consciousness that they belonged to the land.

These people did not know that the land they were living on were now properties of people they never knew had title to.

These people did not know that the land that they were raising their families were now properties of people they never knew had title to.

These people did not know that the land they were investing in were now properties of people they never knew had title to.

These people did not know that the land they were working their butts off were now properties of people they never knew had title to.

The Central Azucarera de Tarlac Realty of the Jose Cojuangco clan is said to have a claim over the property.

The Jose Cojaungco clan’s well known member is President Noynoy Aquino.

“Have you ever been ignored by the very government you helped put in power? I have,” said President Aquino in his Inaugural Speech delivered June 2010.
