The Philippine Network of Food Security Programmes (PNFSP) launched the book Landgrabbing Cases in the Philippines: Hunger, Greed and Resistance on 17 May 2017 at Max’s Restaurant in Quezon Memorial Circle. According to Bulatlat, “the case studies presented delve on the state of the country’s agricultural lands and other land resources and how these are being diminished by the government laws, policies and programs to the detriment of those who directly work the land.”
