“Instead of providing for the drought-stricken farmers or holding government authorities accountable for ordering police to carry guns and fire at the protesters, BS Aquino, as expected, took the escape route by absolving the police of ANY responsibility. Instead, he blamed the farmers’ movement for the Kidapawan carnage on April 1,” Karapatan secretary general Cristina Palabay said, referring to the belated statement of BS Aquino on the Kidapawan bloody dispersal.
