Lies, all lies! — NPA – Mountain Province

NPA-Mountain Province

This is a reply to the many lies and slander spread by spokespersons of the 5th Infantry Division of the Philippine Army and its organic units against the revolutionary movement, especially after the victorious ambush staged by the Leonardo Pacsi Command against troops of the 52nd Division Reconnaisance Company last 9 July in Samoki, Bontoc, Mountain Province. It is clear that the 5th ID wants to demonize the revolutionary forces.

The LPC asserts that the dead soldiers have not been stripped of their clothing. LPC guerillas only took the weapons and other military equipment of the dead soldiers and did not take personal belongings such as clothing, wallets, and cellphones. The New People's Army strictly adheres to international laws governing armed conflicts, the Comprehensive Agreement on the Respect of Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHRIHL) signed by the Government of the Republic of the Philippines and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, and its own rules as a people’s army.

It is not true that the LPC desecrated the bodies of the dead soldiers, such as by firing point-blank into their heads. If any soldier was hit in the head, this happened during combat. In an ambush, fire is concentrated and the target is mobile, any part of the body can be hit.

On the other hand, it is the fascist troops of the Armed Forces of the Philippines who repeatedly violate the rules of war and desecrate the bodies of dead NPA Red fighters.

They tortured and mangled with bullets the bodies of Magno "Ka Braga" Ayabo and Sammy Rey "Ka Cholo" Cayago, both of whom were wounded in action and captured in Tubo, Abra in 2005 and 2008, respectively.

Many innocent civilians in Mountain Province were tortured and killed by operating military troops. In 2001, they tortured and killed Johnny Camareg, a farmer from Betwagan, Sadanga. In 2003, they killed Etfew Chadyaas, a farmer from Belwang, Sadanga. In 2006, they killed Michael Uyad, a student from Agawa, Besao. The military shamelessly said their civilian victims were NPA commanders killed in action.

The people see that drunkenness, gambling, womanizing, and the use of prohibited drugs are the vices of fascist AFP troops. It is well-known that corruption is part of the rotten AFP structure. There is no basis for the military to maliciously link the NPA to these evil vices.

It is a rotten lie that the ambushed troops were on their way to coordinate a medical mission. It comes out now that they were on their way to Bontoc to push for the signing of a memorandum of agreement between the 5th ID and the provincial officials and Philippine National Police for their counter-insurgency program. The spokespersons of the 5th ID spread the story about the medical mission to get public sympathy. The 52nd DRC is a fighting unit, combat is their primary job.

The vilification of the revolutionary movement is part of the national security program Oplan Bantay Laya 2 which the AFP is implementing up to the present. They use all dirty tactics to try and win the hearts and minds of the people. But the lies, slander, and other dirty tactics of the AFP cannot fool all of the people all of the time. The violent, arrogant, and evil character and deeds of the AFP are the basis of the people in choosing to join and support the growing revolutionary movement.


Eng-engag (Kinaulbod)!

Sungbat daytoy iti adu a kinaulbod ken pammadakes dagiti tagapagsarita ti 5th ID ken dagiti organic units na kontra iti rebolusyonaryo a tignayan, aglalo idi kalpasan ti naimballigian a panagtambang ti Leonardo Pacsi Command (LPC) kadagiti tropa iti 52nd DRC idi Hulyo 9, 2010 sadiay Samoki, Bontoc, Mountain Province. Nalawag a panggep ti 5th ID nga iladawan a kas demonyo dagiti puersa ti rebolusyonaryo a tignayan.

Ipaganetget ti LPC a saan nga agpayso a nalabusan dagiti bangkay ti natambangan a soldado. Malaksid kadagiti paltog ken ramit militar, saan nga inala dagiti kameng ti LPC dagiti personal nga usar kas iti lupot, pitaka, ken cellphone. Nairut a tungtungpalen ti NPA dagiti internasyonal a linteg ken pagannurotan iti gubat, ti Comprehensive Agreement on the Respect of Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHRIHL) a pinirmaan ti gobyerno ti Pilipinas ken ti National Democratic Front, ken dagiti bukod na nga annuroten kas hukbo ti umili.

Awan kinaagpayso na a rinanggasan ti LPC ti bangkay dagiti soldado, kas koma iti panangideppel ti putok kadagiti ulo. No adda man soldado a natamaan iti ulo, napasamak daytoy iti las-ud ti labanan. Iti tambang, konsentrado ti bugso ti panagputok ken aggargaraw ti target, posible a matamaan ti kumporme a paset ti bagí.

Iti bangir na, dagiti pasista a tropa ti militar ti kanayon a manglablabsing kadagiti linteg ti gubat ken mangrangranggas iti bangkay dagiti Nalabaga a mannakigubat ti NPA. Pinarparigat ken binurbor da iti bala dagiti bangkay da Magno “Ka Braga” Ayabo ken Sammy Rey “Ka Cholo” Cayago a pareho a nasugatan ken natiliw a sibibiag kadagiti labanan idiay Tubo, Abra idi 2005 ken 2008. Adu dagiti inosente a sibilyan iti Mountain Province a biktima ti kinaranggas ken pammapatay nga aramid ti agop-operasyon a tropa ti militar. Idi 2001, pinarparigat ken pinatay da ni Johnny Camareg, mannalon a taga-Betwagan, Sadanga. Idi 2003, pinarparigat ken pinatay da ni Etfew Chadyaas, mannalon a taga-Belwang, Sadanga. Idi 2006, pinatay da ni Michael Uyad, estudyante a taga-Agawa, Besao. Awanan-bain nga inrason ti militar a dagiti sibilyan a pinarigat ken pinatay da ket komander kano ti NPA a natay iti engkwentro.

Makitkita ti umili a ti panagbartek, panagsugal, panagbabae, ken panagusar kadagiti maiparit a droga ket aramid dagiti pasista a tropa ti AFP. Agdinamag ti nasaknap a korapsyon a nakaramut iti AFP. Awan pulos basaran ti malisyoso a panangipabasol ti militar kadagitoy a dakes nga aramid kadagiti kameng ti NPA!

Nabayagen a nabangles ti lablabiden ti militar a medical mission ti gandat ti natambangan a yunit ti 52nd DRC. Rummuar ita a ti nasao a yunit ket mapan koma idiay Bontoc tapno iduron ti pannakapirma ti maysa a Memorandum of Agreement iti baet ti 5th ID ken dagiti opisyal ti lokal a gobyerno ti probinsya ken PNP para iti programa a kontra-insurhensya. Panangala ti simpatya ti panggep ti istorya dagiti tagapagsarita ti 5th ID a medical mission ti papanan koma ti natambangan a yunit. Ti 52nd DRC ket panglaban a yunit, kombat ti kangrunaan a trabaho da.

Ti panangpadakes kadagiti kameng ti rebolusyonaryo a tignayan ket paset ti Oplan Bantay Laya 2 nga isaysayangkat ti AFP agingga ita. Ipakpakat da amin a narugit a taktika tapno allilawen ken allukoyen ti rikna ken kapanunotan ti umili. Ngem dagiti kinaulbod, pammadakes, ken dadduma pay a narurugit a taktika ti AFP ket saan nga umanay a mangallilaw iti naruay nga umili iti amin a panawen. Ti naranggas, napangas, ken dakes a galad ken aramid ti AFP mismo ti pagbasaran ti umili iti panangpili da a tumipon ken tumulong iti lumawlawa ken pumigpigsa a rebolusyonaryo a tignayan.
