Pesante-USA warns against the buildup of Arroyo's "Brown Shirts" 
Vigilantes

Los Angeles—The Philippine Peasant Support Network (Pesante)-USA, a Filipino peasant, human rights and environmental advocacy group based in
Los Angeles strongly warned of the US-Arroyo regime scheme of taking advantage of the current troubles in Mindanao to build up its local version of Hitler's Brown Shirts.

Pesante is one with the Amnesty International (AI) and many religious groups in the Philippines who are warning the public and the whole world at these vigilante groups which are recycled ILAGAS (known as the Ilonggo landgrabbers Association) who are known anti-Moro vigilante groups before martial law was declared will only aggravate the armed conflict in Mindanao.

History shows that Brown Shirts are Hitler's loose 'civilian' army, whose unabated, sanctioned rampage against Jews and communists and all remaining resistance to the establishment of Nazi power preceded the official fascist transformation of the German state. .

Pesante –USA is referring to Local Goverments Secretary Ronaldo Puno's encouragement and promotion of armed vigilante groups during his recent tours of trouble spots in Mindanao, Secretary Puno has, since the Marcos martial law days been obsessed with building the local version of Brown Shirts Storm troopers. Puno initially developed his local "Brown Shirts" concept way back when he was serving in the same department during the martial law regime.

DILG Puno's concept then was to build up first Marcos' barangay tanods a barangay-based Marcos 'civilian' army, indoctrinating them as a fascist force and then arming them and letting them loose as an unofficial but key adjunct of the martial law regime's fascist army.

Puno had already initiated a number of secret training schools in Tagaytay and several other places for Marcos' Brown Shirts, when the scheme was overtaken by the EDSA uprising in February 1986.

Puno is now using the example of North Cotabato Vice Gov. Emmanuel Piñol's anti-Bangsamoro and anti-Lumad army of Ilagas, Puno is now encouraging, funding and promoting the all-out development of an armed 'civilian' army in Mindanao and eventually all over the country.

The MILF recently attacked the centers of vigilante groups while they were massing to attack the MILF in Lanao Del Norte. They were also active in attacking the lands owned by Bangsa moro residents in North Cotabato.

The Philippine National Police (PNP) even publicly gives media mileage to said such groups. The PNP said that it could also be used to fight the New People's Army (NPA). Puno has ordered that 1,000 shotguns be sent immediately to arm these 'civilian' auxiliaries.
