Fighting for our farmers and the homeless urban settlers
Often times, because of the never ending political controversies the rural and
urban poor are given the least priority.
The Institute on Church and Social Issues, a group of professional researchers
based at the Ateneo de Manila University through its Rural Development and
Urban Poverty and Governance Programs, aims to provide the public with
publications that highlight the needs of those entrenched in rural and urban
Pulso monograph no. 15 features how various nongovernment organizations and
peoples organizations worked together for the passage of the Urban
Development and Housing Act (UDHA) of 1992. Another monograph from the same
series, Pulso no. 19 tackles the factors behind the Congress for a Peoples
Agrarian Reform (CPAR) and its interaction with the different administrations
to lobby the rights of various peasants movements in the country.
These monographs do not only show the needs of the rural and urban poor. They
also show how we can join them in their struggles, not just for their
progress, but for the whole countrys as well.
