This remarkable photo was taken by the press corps of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). Under President Ramon Magsaysay, "Hukbalahaps", or communist insurgents, were offered farms in land formerly owned by the landed rich, in exchange for turning in their arms. In the center Rev. Lacanilao and Robert Bowman cover a press event to show what the goverment was doing to answer the complaints of poor Filipinos. See also #308.
