Spokesperson, NDFP Rizal Chapter
The entire revolutionary movement in Rizal province under the National Democratic Front of the Philippines-Rizal salutes Comrade Gadioso Cuyag, a former peasant leader turned New People’s Army Red Fighter who was martyred last 20 March 2014. He will be buried today, 26 March 2014.
Comrade Gadioso Cuyag, also known as Ka Dodo/Ka William, was a peasant leader victimized by land grabber Rebecca Estabillo in cahoots with corrupt officers of government agency Department of Environment and Natural Resources, and corrupt local government official in Rizal province. He became the leader of the peasant organization in their place to fight for their rights to own the lands they were tilling. Instead of getting the justice he deserved, the government branded him as communist and was continuously harassed, and his life and family threatened.
