Sitio Cadayunan residents burn CPP-NPA-NDF flags, vow loyalty to gov't

ILIGAN CITY, ​Apr. 1 (PIA)--Residents of Sitio ​C​adayunan​ in ​Brgy. Rogongon publicly incinerated flags of the Communist Party of the Philippines - New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDF) during the City Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict’s (CTF-ELCAC’s) serbisyo caravan in the locality.

The rite transpired to denounce any act of rebellion in the city and to symbolize bold engagement and commitment to stand hand-in-hand with the government in its battle against rebel communists in line with the 52nd founding anniversary of the CPP-NPA.

With this, constituents of Sitio ​C​adayunan vowed to firmly support the government in concluding vicious activities brought by the CPP-NPA​-​NDF.

“Ipakita namo sa ilaha kung unsa ang among paghigugma sa ila ug kung unsa pud ilang pagsuporta sa amoa. Gikan karon ug hantud sa hantud, kining ilang pagpakita sa amoa mukutay,” Datu Romel Hundilay conveyed. 

[We will show them how much we love them and what kind of support they also give to us. From now on and forever, what they showed to us will continue.]

“Uban sa mga Datu ug mga Bae, kung mahimo, dili gyud mi muuban sa pikas kay makahatag og problema,” he added.

[Along with the Datus and Baes, if possible, we will not really go with those on the other side because it will just give us problems.]

They also call on their fellow residents to not be persuaded by the deceiving promises and lies by the rebel group.   

“Among kasilinganan, kung naa moy mamatikdan sa inyong dapit ug sa inyong panimalay nga muawhag sa inyo, ayaw mo og tuo. Ang atong tuohan ang gobyerno,” Datu Lito Hondelay expressed. 

[My neighbors, if you observe someone in your area or vicinity who will convince you, do not believe. What we will believe is just the government.] 

To fully show their adherence to the government, residents in the said sitio took an oath for their allegiance to their pronounced promise of support. 

Meanwhile, the government also urged remaining active rebels to return to the fold of law as new life awaits them.

“Ang gusto lang namin ay kapayapaan. Hindi po kami naghahangad ng away so sa mga rebelde na nanandiyaan pa, sumuko na po kayo dahil nakita niyo naman po iyong mga sumukong kasama niyo. Kung susuko kayo, maraming benepisyo ang ibibigay ng gobyerno sa inyo at sana mahikayat niyo rin ang mga kasama niyo,” ​said ​Lt. Col. Rommel Pereña, commander of the 4th Mechanized Infantry Battalion​.​

[What we all want is peace. We do not aim for chaos so to all the rebels who are still there, please surrender already because you already saw your comrades who already surrendered. If you surrender, lots of benefits will be given to you by the government and we hope that you also convince your other companions.] (CRG/ PIA-ICIC)
