The New People's Army-Southwest Front implemented the demand of the people to punish the giant Philex Gold Mining Corp/Bulawan Mining Corp because of the damages it created against the lives, livelihood, health and environment of the people. The punishment-operation was aided by the masses and allies.

It is on record that PHILEX Mining Corp has committed crimes against the people of Sipalay City and Hinobaan because of its intentional dumping of toxic wastes in Mantuboy Creek, Bacuyangan River and the Sipalay River that resulted to fishkill in the shorelines of Sipalay City, lost of water source for irrigation of the peasants of Sipalay and Hinobaan that resulted to decrease or losses in production.

There was massive dislocation in Camindangan, Sipalay City and 10 sitios that has 158 houses and 898 residents covering 1,400 hectares planted to corn, coffee, banana, tobacco because of the exploration of Carles and Cauayan Mining Corporation and Philex Gold Phils. Also in Brgy Manlocahoc, Cabadiangan and San Jose, Sipalay City and Brgy Camalandaan, Cauayan, 13 sitios with 234 houses, 1,459 residents and 1976 hectares planted to rice , corn, banana, coffee and root crops are affected. Included also is the forested area of Brgy Camalandaan which is part of the Watershed areas of Cauayan.

The giant PHILEX Mining Corp, has an approved and pending application for mining and exploration covering 19,048.1431 hectares of land area in the whole 6th district of Negros Occidental besides the current area being operated.

For sure after the punishment of PHILEX Mining Corp, the Maranon-Alvarez- Montilla group will surely react because their source of questionable income and kickbacks are at stake. It is a fact that the local government of Sipalay is earning a big sum by renting it's equipments to the mining corporations at least P100,000.00/day for a single equipment alone. This is in return of the worsening poverty caused by the displacement of peasant lands and livelihood.

What happens to the fabricated stories of "trying-hard & frustrated" scriptwriter of 3ID Col Jonas Sumagaysay on this incident? We heard him say that the NPA in Southwest Negros has been neutralized and they have informants within the NPA? Did your contacts informed you that the NPA will be burning the equipments of PHILEX? Oh come on, It's better that you look for better propaganda line because you are fast losing public credibility because of your lies.

The Communist Party of the Philippines has repeatedly declared it's opposition and dismantling of foreign mining corporations. The NDF-Negros has also called for the dismantling of these mines and the NPA has implemented these orders.

More than ever the NPA is united, solid and determined under the guidance of the Communist Party of the Philippines to frustrate Oplan Bayanihan of the US-Aquino 2 Regime, and realize the long expected demands of the people against exploitative and repressive foreign monopoly capitalists, big comprador borgeisie and landlords. We are united to lead the march of the whole revolutionary movement towards the strategic stalemate until victory of the new democratic revolution and socialism.

Silot sa PHILEX Mining Corp., ginpatigayon sg NPA

Ginpatuman sg New People's Army -- Southwest Front ang madugay na nga ginapanawagan sg pumuluyo nga pagsilot sa higanteng Philex Gold Mining Corp / Bulawan Mining Corp. bangud sg kahalitan sa pangabuhian, kabuhi, ikaayong-lawas kg environment. Sa bulig sg malapad nga masa kg mga alyado ini natigayon.

Kun mahinumduman, ang Philex Mining Corp., may sala pa sa pumuluyo sg Sipalay City kg Hinobaan bangud sg hungod nga pag-ula nila sg makahililo nga higku sg minahan dira sa Mantuboy Creek, Bacuyangan River kg Sipalay River, nga nagtuga sg fishkill sa baybayon sg Sipalay City, pagkadula sg source sg irigasyon sa talamnan sg mangunguma sa Sipalay kg Hinobaan nga nagresulta sa pagnubo sg patubas sg mangunguma.

Nadislokar sa Brgy. Camindangan, Sipalay City ang 10 ka sityo nga may 158 ka bubong kg may 898 nga populasyon nga nagalapad sg 1,400 ektarya nga ginatamnan sg humay kg mais, kape, saging kg tabako bangud sa exploration sg Carles and Cauayan Mining Corp. kag Philex Gold Phils Inc. Samtang, sa Brgy. Manlocahoc, Cabadiangan, kg San Jose, Sipalay City kg Brgy Camalandaan, Cauayan, 13 naman ka sityo nga may 234 ka bubong kg may populasyon nga 1,459 sini ang apektado nga nagalapad sg , 1,976 ektarya nga ginatamnan sg humay, mais, saging, kape kag iban pa. Lakip na diri ang malapad pa nga lasang sg Brgy. Camalandaan nga kabahin sg Watershed Area sg Cauayan.

Ang higanteng Philex Mining Corp., may naaprubahan kg nakapending nga aplikasyon sa pagmina kg exploration nga kapin sa 19,048.1431 ektarya sg kadutaan sa bilog nga 6th district sg Negros Occidental wala pa labot ang karon nga ginaoperar na.

Segurado nga sa pagsilot sa minahan sg Philex, magareact gid ang Maranon-Alvarez- Montilla nga grupo bangud at stake ang ila source sg manggad. Sa ihibalo sg tanan, ang gobyerno sg Sipalay nagaganar sg todo-todo paagi sa pagparenta sg mga ekwipo sa mga minahan, nga indi magnubo sa P100,000.00 kada adlaw nga renta sa isa lang ka ekwipo. Ini kabaylo sa pagluntad sg kagutom bangud sa pagkadula sg duta nga pangabuhian sg mangunguma.

Ano naman ayhan ang tinikal nga istorya sg "trying-hard & frustrated" scriptwriter sg 3ID nga si Jonas Sumagaysay sa ini nga hitabo? Indi bala nyutralisado na ang NPA sa Southwest kag may inpormante pa kamo nga ara mismo sa sulod sg NPA? Wala bala nakakontak sa imo ang imo inpormante nga sunugon sg NPA ang kagamitan sg Philex? Pangita na kamo sg lain nga linya sa propaganda bangud labe na gid nga nagakadula ang inyo kredibilidad sa pumuluyo sa inyo sobra nga kahambugan.

Daan na nagpaandam ang Partido Komunista sg Pilipinas sa indi pagpasugot, pagpa-untat, kg sa pagwasak sa mga dumuluong nga minahan. Ang NDF-Negros nagpanawagan man para sa pagwasak sini nga ginpatuman karon sg New People's Army.

Mas labi nga unipikado, solido kg determinado ang New People's Army sa ubay sg Partido Komunista sg Pilipinas nga paslawon ang O'Plan Bayanihan sg Rehimeng US-Aquino2, kag sabton ang malawig na nga demanda sg pumuluyo batuk sa mga manughimulos kg manugpigos nga mga dumuluong nga monopolyong kapitalista, dalagkung kumprador burgesya kag mga agalon mayduta. Pursigido kita nga imartsa ang bilog nga rebolusyonaryong kahublagan sa estratehikong pagkapatas tubtob sa kadalag-an sg demokratikong rebolusyon sg banwa tubtob sosyalismo.
