For almost eight months now, or since the rapid expansion of plantations and large-scale mining in Allah Valley, South Cotabato, the 27th IB-AFP has conducted a relentless military campaign designed to pave the way for the encroachment of giant multinational agribusiness and large-scale mining. As a faithful mercenary, the 27th IB has made certain nobody stands in the way for the land acquisition of these imperialist companies.

A major disaster struck Metro Manila, Southern Tagalog, Central and Northern Luzon in early August. More than ten days of torrential monsoon rains precipitated massive floods that swept away and destroyed the homes and properties of up to two million people, causing loss of lives and the ruination of agricultural land, fishing grounds and other sources of livelihood.

This calamity brought back painful memories of typhoon Ondoy in 2009 that inundated wide swaths of Metro Manila, typhoon Sendong in 2011 that flooded vast areas of Northern Mindanao and the Visayas and other storms and floods that struck the country in the past. Typhoons have been causing ever worsening loss of lives and property due to severe environmental destruction and the deterioration of the necessary infrastructure to control flooding and ensure the people’s protection.

NDF-EV supports urban poor struggle against military's landgrabbing in Ormoc

The National Democratic Front of the Philippines-Eastern Visayas today expressed support for more than 2,700 urban poor residents who are fighting eviction from Brgy. Camp Downes, Ormoc City, Leyte, which is inside a military reservation and near the headquarters of the 802nd Infantry Brigade. “The NDF-EV condemns the brazen harassment by the military of the urban poor residents of Brgy. Camp Downes since the beginning of this year to force their eviction,” said NDF-EV spokesperson Fr. Santiago Salas. “The fascist dictator Marcos declared the 36-hectare Camp Downes a military reservation in 1968. But even before that, civilians had long populated the area and now occupy 15.7 hectares. However, the 802nd Infantry Brigade, which sits on a 21-hectare camp, wants to fully utilize the entire military reservation area for a housing project for soldiers and a naval base, among others.”
