Jorilyn Llanda started this petition to Philippines Pres Rodrigo Duterte

In other country, they give importance on agriculture and farmers as it is where they get their supply of food. Many nations had made their country rich through developing and improving their agricultural lands and people who work in agriculture had made a big difference on their society.

But here in the Philippines, people see farmers as 'not that important' in terms of what they do. They think farmers doesn't need to be respected as they only tend to give importance to business and those people who are popular in our society.

These things that they were saying were opposite of what farmers really are. Farmers are the main source of our daily meal and they are the one who give supply on everything we eat. Without farmers, there will be no more foods for us to intake, no nutrients for our body to absorb and no more healthy environment. 

But when farmers complain about something, most people doesn't take it seriously as they think it is not that important. Doesn't farmers contribute on the development of a certain country? Doesn't they serve everyone and give them fresh foods to eat? They do! But why do people still doesn't care about the voices they've been hearing out for years from them?

They complain because they are facing many problems and how people treat them is not right. The price of the rice, when will it be fixed? When farmers suffer too much and they will then stop doing agriculture? Who will then be suffering? It's everyone, because we rely on their hands for our foods and we have to know their sides and hear their voices for us not to suffer.

Let us hear out the voices of the farmers. Let's make them continue on giving us their gifts, the gifts that are very important to our lives. Respecting their rights and understanding them will be a great thing to do. As a country without farmers, will be a country without future.
