KINONDENA nina ACT Teachers Reps. Antonio Tinio at France Castro ang pinaniniwalaan nilang masaker ng militar at pulisya sa 14 magsasaka sa Canlaon City, Negros Oriental nitong Sabado, 30 Marso.
Bukod sa mga napaslang, sinabing 12 iba pa ang inaresto at isa ang nawawala matapos ang operasyon ng pulis at militar laban sa mga namumuno ng Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas (KMP.) “Instead of heeding the call to stop the killing and targeting of farmers, the police and military under the Duterte administration once again added more to their long queue of victims,” protesta ni Tinio.
“These bloodthirsty perpetrators should not dare call their rampage in Canlaon City, Manjuyod and Sta. Catalina, Negros Oriental as legitimate anti-crime operations. Their standard excuses have already been exposed as unadulterated lies, as what happened in their previous operations in Guihulngan last Decem-ber 27 and Sagay last October 20, that were passed off as Tokhang operations, with the unarmed fatalities tagged as resisting arrest and fighting back or ‘nanlaban’ against the fully-armed troopers and police,” dagdag niya.
Ani Castro, walang ibang puwedeng sisihin sa nangyari kundi si Pangulong Duterte. Aniya ang nangyari sa Negros ay nag-umpisa sa counter-insurgency Memorandum Circular 32 (MC 32) ng Malacañang, ani Castro.
“It follows the rulebook of targeting civilians and innocents under the so-called Oplan Kapayapaan (OPK) as well as ‘tokhang’ and other bloody operations which the Duterte administration is waging against the people,” ayon kay Castro. (Gerry Baldo)
