Retired Air Force Colonel Oscar Lasangue should not allow himself to be used by presstitutes Manuel “Kerida King” Mejorada and Danny “Estafador” Fajardo. Both presstitutes use the statements of the poor retired colonel to bolster their claims about the “sinister move of the insurgency movement to infiltrate government” because Jeffrey Celiz, a former militant activist and beloved by Ilonggos, is the spokesman of the Iloilo City Mayor.
Following the convoluted logic of Mejorada and Fajardo, the likes of current Bayan Muna Sectoral Rep. Teddy Casino, former Gabriela Party List Rep. Liza Maza and three-time Bayan Muna Rep. Satur Ocampo also should be taken to task for “infiltrating the government” and being a “security risk”. With Casino as congressman, aren’t we afraid he has “unlimited access” to government intelligence information? And that he might pass it on to Maza and Ocampo who will in turn pass it on to the cadres in the mountains and oh no! We will have the countryside surrounding the cities and we will all be dead meat! Shudder at the thought, fellow Ilonggos! Oh no, Filipino people, watch out for those trojan horses!!!
Similarly, the Iloilo City government is doing their best to keep the peace.
City eyes continuation of
peace process in Iloilo
by Lydia C. Pendon
ILOILO CITY – Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog here has assured protection to persons involved in the continuing peace process by hosting a dialogue between the military, police and leaders of militant organizations in the city in cooperation with the Iloilo provincial government.
The dialogue held Tuesday, October 4 at the provincial capitol focus on the reported resurgence of the red scare particularly in the city and province of Iloilo and the many issues involving activities of militant organizations here.
It was participated by Bayan Panay led by Hope Hervilla and Karapatan headed by Geobelyn Lopez and the military officials headed by MGen. Emmanuel Bautista of the 3rd Infantry division Philippine Army and police officials headed by CSupt. Cipriano Querol Jr. of police regional office based at Camp Delgado here.
Mabilog said the dialogue or “hinun-anon” in the local dialect, will hopefully set the parameters against alleged accusations of communist activities in the city and province with the city and national governments following guidelines of the peace process set forth by President Benigno Aquino III.
On the other hand, the military and police officials admitted that they both respect the communistic ideologies of militant organizations but firm against armed groups that advocate rebellion and overthrow of the duly established government.
The militant groups requested the authorities to stop red tagging against them as they are legitimate nationalistic organizations advocating peace and protecting the rights of the people through the bayanihan concept.
A letter complaint from an unidentified person was received by the military and police recently depicting the resurfacing of some individuals in the city who advocates communism.
Mabilog, chairman of the regional peace and order council (RPOC) of Western Visayas, admitted that he is willing to host continuing dialogues between the military, police and militant organizations to thresh out issues on peace and order in the area.
