This work was originally intended to join the number of works calling for justice for the victims of Kidapawan massacre in 2016. It is imperative to discuss the situation of the peasant sector in the Philippines given that they compose the majority of its population. Hence, we decided to produce this visual essay entitled “hulaw” [drought]. Its language is accessible so it could somehow serve as an illustrated primer on the agricultural situation of the farmers, the effect of environmental crisis to the most vulnerable sectors of Philippine society, and the further aggravation and destruction caused by feudalism, bureaucrat capitalism, and imperialism.
