#JusticeForRommyTorres: Farmer fighting for a parcel of land found dead, stuffed in a drum

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Another day another innocent man loses his life.

Rommy Torres, a 52-year-old farmer in Norzagaray, was reported missing last February 3. 

Torres was found in a creek in Mabitac, Laguna on February 5. His body, ridden with gunshot wounds, had been stuffed in a blue drum.

Prior to his disappearance, he fought alongside fellow farmers to resist the Royal Mollucan Realty Holdings Inc.'s land-grabbing of agricultural lands in the area.

He joins the hundreds of farmers and peasant leaders who were murdered under Duterte's rule, for which justice is yet to be exacted. Join us tonight as we register our indignation against the persistent killings of farmers and peasants under Duterte's tyranny!

In 2019, Torres got into an altercation with an alias Kaloy, leader of the security guards who mauled an elderly farmer. In 2020, security guards of Royal Mollucan fired shots at Torres after he entered the fenced land to harvest banana and root crops. 

Torres reportedly went out early Wednesday morning to harvest bananas inside the fenced land being grabbed by Royal Mollucan and guarded by goons led by Salvador Domagtoy of NSD Elite Security Agency. 

Torres’ relatives filed a blotter and reported him missing on February 4 after he failed to go home.

On February 5, Torres was found dead and stuffed in a blue plastic drum in a creek in San Miguel, Mabitac, Laguna. 

The stench coming from the cemented drum led residents to discover the body of Torres. 

According to Mabitac PNP, he bore gunshot wounds in the mouth, chest, and back. He was hogtied and slid in a drum.

A farmer fighting against land grabbing and asserting his rights for a parcel of land was brutally killed, stuffed in a drum, and left to rot afar. Only monsters can commit this heinous crime.

Farmer-members of Sama-Sama are enraged with the brutal killing of Rommy. The farmers themselves often receive threats from the armed goons and guards of landgrabber Royal Moluccan.

Rommy was known in the community as a dutiful and good-humored farmer. Despite being reserved and quiet during peasant association meetings, he realized the importance of asserting and defending their right to the land they till.

In October 2019, the SAMA-SAMA farmers' houses were demolished and burned Royal Moluccan goons to force them to move out the fenced farm lots.

KMP, and SAMA SAMA maintains that the DAR Adjucation Board repeatedly favored Royal Moluccan in its decisions despite DAR issuing a Notice of Coverage for distribution as early as May 15, 2006.


THIS IS OUR COUNTRY NOW UNDER DUTERTE FASCIST REGIME.

pansin nyo ba, kapag may mga ganitong news, hindi na tayo nagugulat? It's because this administration conditioned our minds already to accept this as normal.

FUCCCKINGGG WAKEE UUUPPP!

Ganito nila gaguhin mga magsasaka, tapos magtataka tayo kung bakit ang daming rebelde. Tanga lang.

Dati pa nangyayari pero bakit hinahayaan nating mauulit? Nakasanayan na kaya okay lang? At may namatay tapos mema lang?

KATARUNGAN KAY ROMMY TORRES!

Itigil ang pamamaslang sa mga magsasaka.

Mariing kinukundena ang brutal na pagpaslang kay Rommy, 52, kasapi ng Samahan ng Magsasaka sa San Mateo (SAMASAMA). 

THE KILLING OF BULAKEƑO PEASANT IS FAR PAST THE LAST STRAW IN COUNTRYSIDE STATE VIOLENCE

The culture of impunity is made worse by Terror Law.

Duterte’s minions—soldiers, policemen, goons—are further empowered to commit red-tagging and killings.
