The Red fighters of F72 under the Mt.Alip Front Operational Command launched a tactical offensive on the Cafgu detachment of Brgy Luz Village, Mlang, North Cotabato on March 26, 2010. A total of thirty five (35) high powered rifles were seized from the enemy comprising of fifteen (15) M14 rifles, two (2) M16 rifles, seventeen (17) garand rifles and one carbine. Under the pretext of campaigning for the PiÃ±ols, the Red fighters who were on board two trucks and dressed as rubber tappers, easily overrun the detachment. The attack lasted for about 14 minutes. The Cafgu who fought back was killed, the rest who surrendered were left in peace
We are happy and honored to have made this little contribution to the people's war in time for our celebration of the NPA's 41st anniversary. Indeed, with the people's help, the people's war has grown ever stronger and bigger. Nothing is impossible for the people's army which derives its strength and inspiration from the masses.
We are also quite concerned for the innocent individuals, the drivers and helpers of the trucks who are now presently detained at the Mlang police station. Roland Reston, Lanie Caballero, Along Enriquez -- all residents of Makilala North Cotabato are preswently at the Mlang PNP and are accused of arson and illegal possession of firearms. They have nothing at all to do with the tactical offensive. They are just simple workers who are trying to eke out a susbsistence for themselves and their families. They should be released immediately and unconditionally. Their detention is pure state harrassment designed to sow fear among the people and impose the PiÃ±ols brand of fascism and terrorism.
