Rice Tarification Law resulted in falling prices of palay in the Philippines

               
     
  The farmers are the backbone of the economy of the Philippines. Yet with the Enactment of R.A. No. 11203 or the Rice Tarification Law which was authored by Sen. Cynthia Villar has resulted in falling prices of palay in the country. The said law has opened the Philippines to the importation of cheap rice in the market.

This month all farmers are seeking and crying for help because the prices of "Palay" have reached to very low price per kilo which ranges from P7 to P10 per kilo. All farmers are complaining to the Government of the Philippines because of the cause and effect of the Rice Tariffication Law. All farmers said " luging-lugi na kami". One of their problems also is how they would pay their debt. They lend a huge amount of money to sustain their rice plantation. 

Sadly, some of our farmers are thinking to sell their farmland because of huge losses. It's really painful to see the present situation of our farmers. Most of our farmers are only depending on their harvest to earn money.

In Nueva Ecija Province, in the Central Luzon which the biggest rice producers in the country are already complaining of the present situation because of too much insensitive government officials and numb Philippine Government.

While the copra farmers in Samar Province, which is one of the biggest producers of Copra in the country are also complaining of the very low price which ranges only from P6 to P7 per kilo. 

     We call on the government to hear the needs of the farmers and repeal such laws and policies that do not prioritize Filipinos and their lives.
