    Farm workers in the Philippines continue to fight for their share of land from the agricultural estate owned by the Philippine president's family, the country's second-largest private estate.

    Land reform was signed into law by President Benigno Aquino III's mother when she was president in 1987, entitling farmers to one hectare each of the 6,000 hectares estate.

    However none of the land has yet been turned over.
