The New People’s Army (NPA) successfully carried out a special partisan operation against a notorious agent of the 62nd IB in Guihulngan, Negros Oriental. The operation was part of efforts of the NPA to exact justice for the peasant masses and people of Negros who have been under the Duterte regime’s campaign of terror since 2018.
NPA-Central Negros Ka JB Regalado identified the military agent as Macky Pacunla, a member of the Citizen Armed Forces Georgraphical Unit (CAFGU), who is involved in the brutal Oplan Sauron operations against peasant communities in Negros. Red fighters dispatched by the NPA caught up with Pacunla in Sitio Compound, Barangay Luz, Guihulngan City, Negros Oriental last June 11, 2020.
Though assigned at Barangay Sikatuna Detachment in Isabela town, Negros Occidental, Pacunla was also active in the 62nd IB’s operations in other towns and barangays. He lead fascist troops in house-to-house raids and searches, threatening barrio folks who they accussed of being “NPA supporters.” He also guided the 62nd IB in ransacking many houses in Barangay Luz, Guihulngan City.
Regalado called on other CAFGU members to resign and stop serving the armed reactionary forces in oppressing their peasant brothers and sisters struggling for the realization of genuine land reform.#
