Sweet talk: Representatives from the 28 sugar producing provinces in the country as well as agrarian reform beneficiaries hand over a manifestation to senators led by Senate President Vicente Sotto III (seated, 3rd from left ) thanking them for supporting the group’s plea to scrap the proposed liberalization of the sugar industry. “We are here to thank you for your overwhelming support. If not for your timely intervention, the death of the sugar industry would have been imminent,” the manifestation read. Also in photo are Senators Ronald Bato, Nancy Binay, Cynthia Villar, Joel Villanueva, Francis Tolentino, Sonny Angara and Senate Majority Leader Migz Zubiri.
