CHRISTMAS SPOILERS:  Death threat, red tagging vanishes holiday joy

As if the terror caused by the on-going focused military operation (FMO) in Sta. Catalina and other areas of Negros Oriental’s 3rd District is not enough to dissipate the celebratory mood of the affected communities for the upcoming traditional Christmas day festivity, the 11th IB’s psywar hacks are unrelenting in spawning dangerous lies against civilians. […]

FMOs sowing terrorism in Sta. Catalina

The conduct of focused military operations (FMOs) in the 3rd District of Negros Oriental, particularly in the town of Sta. Catalina, has been synonymous with terrorism. As these brutal and dirty operations often resulted in mounting cases of grave human rights violations victimizing unarmed civilians and non-combatants. The FMO was conceived by the fascist-criminal Duterte […]

Masked soldiers terrorized farmers

Early Wednesday morning at least a company of soldiers wearing ski masks surrounded and assaulted the family residence of elderly farmer Nicolas Lasas in Sitio Igang, Barangay Talalac, Sta. Catalina, Negros Oriental. They were looking for his two sons, Tata and Titi, implicated by the Negros Oriental TF-ELCAC in a fabricated murder case over the […]

Intensifying Crackdown on Peasant Organizations in Southeast Negros

On orders by the tyrant Duterte’s anti-insurgency task force, the 11th IB has stepped up its crackdown on peasant organizations in the 3rd District of Negros Oriental starting last month and continuing at present. Leaders and members of legal peasant organizations were targeted in the systematic campaign of red tagging, villification, harassment, threat, coercion, mauling, […]

CentCom chief’s pipe dream

In a recent visit to its headquarters last Nov. 26, 2020, Lt. Gen. Roberto Ancan of AFP-Central Command congratulated the 11th IB for successfully “dismantling the Southeast Negros Front of the CPP-NPA”. The congratulatory remark ironically came barely a month after the failure of the last round of focused military operation (FMO) in Sta. Catalina […]

On Gen. Baluyan’s hackneyed diatribe against revolutionary taxation

The fascist mercenaries of Negros RTF-ELCAC and AFP CentCom have once again stepped up their criminal, anti-people terrorist scheming in a vain attempt to thwart the revolutionary people’s democratic government (PDG) in Negros Oriental in exercising its right and fulfilling its duty of collecting revolutionary taxes. Last September 29, 2020, 302nd Brigade Commander Brig. General […]

Use of airplane metaphor to justify AFP’s fascist orientation and undemocratic practices laughable

The paid hacks of 11th IB were quick to react to the recent RMPC post regarding the thriving democracy inside the NPA and lack thereof in the AFP. They likened the AFP to an airplane and its officers to pilots; and without them the flight will be lost on its course and unable to reach […]

Demokrasya nagalambo sa NPA

Read in: English Aron paghatag rason sa ilang dakong pangwarta nga iskema sa peke nga pagpasurender, ang mga binaryan nga tigpangdaut sa 11th IB karong bag-o naghimo sa kataw-anan nga estorya kabahin sa giingong pagpangyatak sa katungod sa mga pulang manggugubat sa giingong despotiko nga mga kumander sa NPA ug kadre sa Partido. Usa kini […]

Democracy thrives in the NPA

Read in: Bisaya To justify its profitable fake surrender scheme, 11th IB’s paid hacks recently concocted the pathetic storyline about so-called individual rights of Red fighters being trampled by “despotic” NPA commanders and Party cadres causing demoralization and eventual massive surrender. This is a barefaced lie and a desperate act to cover-up their plunder of […]

Army’s gross ignorance on the land mine accord exposed

In a fashion akin to that of Goebbels, Hitler’s chief propagandist, the paid hacks of 11th IB are incessantly repeating the lie in their radio programs that the NPA violated the Ottawa Convention in employing command-detonated explosives in tactical offensives.. No matter how many times this lie is repeated, it will not change the fact […]
