Hulyo 13,2011

Twenty-one successfully coordinated tactical offensives by the different Guerrila Fronts in the island of Negros under the Apolinario "Boy" Gatmaitan Command in just 31 days from June 5 until July 6, 2010. The most coordinated was the June 12 strike that has an attritive and annihilative nature, punishment of military intelligence assets, criminal elements, ambushes, sniping, harassments and punishment of the destructive foreign mining firms as demanded by the people.
Six high powered rifles (HPRs) and short arms, ammunitions, and other military hardwares were collected by the NPA. There's a total of seven KIAs and 15 WIAs on the part of the Phil Army and the RMG, three notorious military intelligence assets and criminal elements were punished.

The following is the list of the NPA tactical offensives:

July 6- Operatives of the NPA under the Southwest Front, Armando Sumayang Jr Command raided the compound of the Philex Mining Corp and raze the bunkhouse of Drill Corp (contractor of Philex) in Brgy Nabulao, Sipalay City. The NPA helped the occupants of the bunkhouse in taking out their personal belongings, animals before burning the bunkhouse, 2 heavy equipments, generator, 1 Nissan Pathfinder and other equipments.

The security guards were disarmed of 1 Mossberg shotgun with 21 bullets, 2 9mm pistols with 19 bullets and 3 handsets with 2 chargers, 1 metal detector, 1 .357 caliber revolver with 4 live ammos and other mining equipments. Eleven celfons of civilians were also taken but will be returned to the owners in the days to come.

July 3- A sniping operation was carried out by a team of the NPA under the Leonardo Panaligan Command in Central Negros against an operating unit of the 11th IB resting in a hut. The soldiers were gambling "Tong its"(card game) in Sityo Lag-asan, Brgy Tacpao, Guihulngan City. This resulted to three KIAs and 6 WIAs including a certain Roy Salvador (11th IB). A military chopper hurriedly took the casualties to Cebu Military Hospital.

The total opposite are the reported lies of the frustrated script writer and director Col Jonas Sumagaysay who claimed that three NPAs were killed and four wounded.

June 19- A unit of the Armando Sumayang Jr Command punished Ramil "Rigor" Escora of Brgy Tuyom Cauayan. Escora was on the act of unpinnig a grenade when he learned that he will be arrested. Escora was a notorious military intelligence asset and former member of the bandit group RPA involved in a syndicate for goons and guns for hire. He has several cases of murder, hold-ups, manhandling and threats. An apple type grenade, 2 live ammos for shot gun, 1 Nokia celfon and wallet with intel documents was taken from him.

June 18- An NPA unit under the Rachelle Mae Palang Command encountered a unit of the 79th IB in Pamplona, Negros Oriental. There was no casualty on the side of the NPA as maliciosly claimed by Col Jonas Sumagaysay.

June 12- Several units of the NPA under the Leonardo Panaligan Command simultaneously harass the military detachments in Brgy T. Hill in Villegas, headquarters of the 11th IB Bravo Coy in Brgy Buenavista, Guihulngan City, Negros Oriental and in Brgy Libas, Isabela, Negros Occidental.

The troopers of the Regional Mobile Group (RMG) based in Brgy Libertad was operating when a unit of the NPA decided to take the opportunity and executed a fire and maneuver ambush that resulted to 4 KIAs on the enemy with 5 WIAs.

On this day, the NPA also conducted checkpoints in Brgys Bulado, Mani-ak, Buenavista and Hilaitan, Guihulngan, Negros Oriental and in Brgy Mabini, Escalante City, Talamnan San Jose, Toboso and Brgy Malatas Calatrava, Negros Occidental.

June 11- Escalante City. The Roselyn Pelle Command thru a partisan operation punished Eric Matugas, a notorious civilian intelligence asset of the RMG, ex-RPA and was the brains behind a series of hold ups and was a partner of Renante Canete who was punished before.

June 8 and 9- NPA units under the Roselyn Pelle Command, harassed troopers of the 62nd IB in Sitio Calapi and Sitio Tul-angon, Brgy Tabun-ac, Toboso. There was no casualty among the NPA while two troopers of the 62nd IB were killed and three wounded in the encounter.

June 5- The Armando Sumayang Command implemented the order of the Revolutionary People's Court in punishing Titing Pase another notorious intelligence asset of the Phil Army involved in the murders of "scrappers" in Maricalum Mining Corp including three innocent children they dropped in the Sinking Pond of the mines.

These various and assorted tactical offenives of the NPA was carried out successfully because of the unending support of the oppressed and exploited masses victimized by the fascist mercenary troops of the Phil Army and victims of the monopoly capitalists mines that have landgrabbed, destroyed the environment and health of the people.

These coordinated tactical offensives of the NPA, signifies the strengthening and solidity of the NPA in Negros and the whole country. Again this is in complete opposite on the claims and nightmares of Jonas Sumagaysay.

To all Negrosanons, don't be fooled by the "sweet" words and sharp tongue of Marañon who is behind the mining operations in the mountains of Sagay and the shorelines of Sagay and Cadiz that has already dislocated the peasants and fishermen, he's also behind the systematic displacement of more than 8,000 people in Northern Negros Forest Reserve who will be replaced by imported cattle. These are just a few of the reasons of Marañon's request for additional troops of the mercenary Phil Army and PNP in Negros. Surely this is for the protection of their economic and political interest in Negros.

Whatever Oplans the reactionary government is implementing against the revolutionary movement, the Public-Private Partnership Program of the US-Aquino Regime or the Negros First Policy of Marañon will surely be a failure. Even the Oplan Bayanihan of the AFP that terrorized the people will not hinder the advance of the people's war in Negros. In actuallity this will ignite the anger and rage of the people against the system. For as long as there are peasants, workers and fishermen who are losing their livelihood and their dignity to life taken away by this rotten system the armed struggle will continue along the line of the national democratic revolution.

Ining mga nanari-sari nga taktikal nga opensiba sg NPA natigayon bangud sg wala'y untat nga paghulag kg wala'y pagkahubas nga suporta sg pigos kag ginahimuslan nga masa nga mga biktima sg kalakasan sg mga pasistang mersenaryong tropa sg Phil.

Sa tanan nga pumuluyong Negrosanon, indi magpatiplang sa matam-is nga mga tinaga kg matalum nga dila ni Marañon nga amo ang sa likod sg mina sa binukid sg Sagay kg baybayon sg Sagay kg Cadiz nga nagadislokar sa mangunguma kg mangingisda, amo ang sa likod sa pagpahalin sa masobra 8000 ka pumuluyo sa Northern Negros Forest Reserve kabaylo sa pagpuyo diri sg imported nga mga baka. Ini ang sa likod sg deklarasyon ni Marañon nga magdugang sg tropa sg mersenaryong Phil Army kg PNP sa Negros. Pat-ud, proteksyon ini para sa iya pangekonomiya kg pangpololitika nga interes sa Isla sg Negros.

Bisan ano pa man nga O'Plan sg reaksyonaryong gobyerno ang ipatuman batuk sa rebolusyonaryong kahublagan,segurado ang kapaslawan. Indi ang Public Private Partnership Program sg US-Aquino nga Rehimen o Negros First Policy ni Marañon nga ginaupdan sg O'Plan Bayanihan sg AFP nga nagaterorisa sa pumuluyo ang makaupang sa pagbulwak sg kalayo sg paghimakas sa Isla. Sa baylo, ini ang magasindi sa paglupok sg nagaindakal nga kaakig sg pumuluyo sa sini nga sistema, bangud samtang may mga mangunguma, mamumugon kg mangingisda nga nagakadulaan sg pangabuhian, ginakuhaan sg dignidad nga mabuhi kg ginapamatay sg sini nga sistema, padayon ang armadong paghimakas paagi sa pungsodnon demokratikong nga rebolusyon.

Padayon iwagayway ang bandera sg armadong paghimakas! Mag-upod kg magsuporta sa NPA!
