  1. The police really have to act on the crimes committed to the industries and to people because if they just sit around doing nothing, these industries can easily pack up and leave for friendlier countries to do their business with. Hindi lang naman Pilipinas ang may lupa. And if that happens, now what? Millions of Mindanao workers will lose their jobs and source of livelihood. Mas mahirap ang buhay, mas maraming krimen.


  2. Hopefully this Adopt Your Police Station Program can help secure the plantations. The industry is already facing different challenges that may affect our share to the global market.
