Matinding pananalasa sa mamamayang Catandunganon ang isinasagawa ng 83rd Infantry Batallion sa pagpapatupad ng Oplan Bayanihan. Sa Payo at Bagamanoc ay marami ang naging biktima ng paglabag sa karapatang pantao dahil sa matagal na pagbase sa kanilang lugar. Nandyan na ang ilang kaso ng pananakot, interogasyon, pambibintang, panghahalughog at pambubugbog. Ginawa din nilang mga base ang barangay hall, eskwelahan, chapel at ilang mga pribadong bahay ng mga masa para na din gawing human shield ang mga tao.

Stoke the fires of peasant struggles

Nov 7, 2011 (English)

The widespread poverty and hunger suffered by the peasant masses nationwide are tinderboxes, sparking fires of peasant struggles everywhere. Farmers have been mounting fierce resistance to various forms of landgrabbing and struggling for genuine land reform to dismantle monopoly control over land. They have been standing up for their democratic rights even in the face of intense militarization and fascist violence.

The peasant masses rage in anger at the landlord president who has done nothing but add to their suffering. After merely more than a year in power, Benigno Aquino III has already imposed several policies that have been detrimental to the interests of the peasant masses.

NDF-EV calls for resistance against militarization and warlordism pushed by the Tan dynasty and the 8th ID in Western Samar

The National Democratic Front-Eastern Visayas today slammed the Tan political dynasty for using Western Samar's possible recall elections to push militarization and warlordism. “We condemn the maneuver from the Tan dynasty through the provincial office of the Commission on Elections in asking for the deployment of the military and police to oversee the signature verification for the recall elections. That move is claimed by the provincial Comelec to be necessary against the revolutionary movement's taking advantage of the tense political situation. But in reality, the Tan dynasty and the military are the ones united in taking advantage of and attacking the people to their mutual benefit.

Animo'y tuyong dayami ang malawak na kahirapan at kagutuman na dinaranas ng masang magsasaka sa buong bansa. Kaliwa't kanan ay sumisiklab ang apoy ng mga pakikibakang magsasaka. Matindi ang pagtutol sa iba't ibang anyo ng pangangamkam ng lupa. Ipinaglalaban ng mga magbubukid ang tunay na reporma sa lupa para mabaklas ang monopolyong kontrol sa lupa. Naninindigan sila para sa kanilang mga demokratikong karapatan kahit pa sa harap ng matinding militarisasyon at pasistang karahasan.

Unang karanasan

Tahimik kaming lima matapos bigyan ng briefing para sa isasagawang isang lihim na aktibidad.

Binulungan ako ni Sandra, "Masakit ang tiyan ko". Tulad ko, bago din siyang sasabak sa ganito. Lalong nagdagdag ito ng malakas na kabog sa aking dibdib. Dinadaga na yata ako. Umatras na kaya ako habang maaga pa?

"Kaya natin 'yan," pampalakas-loob ni Sim. Sinegundahan naman ito ni Carla. Pangalawang beses na nilang sasama sa ganitong aktibidad.
