Apung Tony Tolentino, a barangay chairperson of Brgy. Hacienda Dolores, in Porac, Pampanga is accused of crimes. And what crime? He lead the fight with farmers in their right to land against private land developer, he defended and sacrificed for others who would not let the truth die with them. Apung Tony was arrested due to trumped up charges filed by private land developer and detained since April 16, 2014.
Apung Tony believes that all cases filed against him are mere forms of harassment. He emphasized that the only purpose of him being arrested is to weaken the farmers' resistance against land corporation.
Brgy. Chair Tolentino is also one of the leaders of Aniban ng Nakakaisang Mamamayan ng Hacienda Dolores (Aniban), a farmers group from Porac, Pampanga, claiming ownership of Hacienda Dolores by virtue of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).
