The Sumilao Farmers traversed a total of 20 kilometers from the Municipality of Bula to Naga City. Again the farmers continued walking despite heavy rains. They were all soaked and wet  because their rain coats were already tattered. This hardship did not affect the marchers' determination to reach the day's destination.

The Walk for Sumilao Land, Walk for Justice Campaign carries various issues on the state and implementation of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).  It is initiated by the Sumilao Farmers primarily to reclaim the 144-hectare landholding in their hometown.  Although they have particular calls such as revocation of the conversion order, they are also calling for the extension and reformation of the CARP, and recognition for a need of a Land Use Law, which, would redound to the benefit of the whole peasantry across the country.
