April 12, 2012 - The militant peasant group Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas (KMP) and the Kaisahang Pambansa ng mga Magsasaka sa Koprahan (KOPRAHAN) today demanded the Aquino government to “immediately pave the way for the return of the coco levy funds and assets to small coconut farmers and not to use it at will.”

Thus, said the militant peasant group Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas (KMP) and the Kaisahang Pambansa ng mga Magsasaka sa Koprahan (Koprahan) today saying that “the Presidential Commission on Good Government and pseudo-coconut farmer-leaders’ representation in SMC and the UCPB failed to ensure the immediate return of the funds to small coconut farmers.”
