Military terrorism has not ceased in the country. Military rule remains a reality 40 years after Ferdinand Marcos' formal declaration of martial law on September 21, 1972 and 26 years after his regime was overthrown in a people's uprising in February 1986.

Marcos used martial law to perpetuate himself in power and strengthen the rule of foreign big capitalists, big bourgeois compradors, landlords and bureaucrat capitalists.

The Death of PFC Bacolbacol of 61st IB is Justice for Rodelyn Aguirre


Jurie Guerrero
Jose Percival Estocada, Jr. Command, NPA-Central Panay
September 18, 2012

“We have no means of filing a case, what we do want is dorog for the child that was killed.” This was the statement of the family of Rodelyn Aguirre, the 6 year old Tumanduk girl who died on March 11, 2012 from an explosion caused by the explosion of a grenade launcher fired from the detachment of the 61st IB situated near their home in Brgy Tacayan, Tapaz, Capiz. Dorog is part of the Tumanduk culture requiring payment in death for the debt of life as a way of getting justice.   In spite of the obvious facts, the military still strongly denied their crimes and, in their desperation to avoid a criminal suit, even offered P5,000 to members of the Aguirre family to testify in their favour. This is a testament of how the AFP values human life and the tumanduk way of life, a testament to how cheaply they price the lives of tumanduk children.
