Pesante-USA learned through media sources that around 15 armed men in civilian clothes arrested Galit, an officer of the Katipunan ng mga Samahang Magbubukid sa Timog Katagalugan and spokesperson of the Katipunan ng mga Magbubukid sa Kabite, said his wife Patricia who witnessed the arrest at their house.

Pesante-USA Condemns S. Tagalog activists crackdown

Los Angeles The Philippine Peasant Support Network (Pesante)-USA condemns in the strongest terms what the Southern Tagalog peasant activist crackdown and witch hunt under the US-Arroyo fascist regime.

This is how Pesante-USA, a human rights, Filipino peasant advocacy and environmental organization in Los Angeles and Southern Tagalog activists described what would come next after farmer leader Rogelio Galit was arrested Monday evening at Barangay Kaong, Silang, Cavite on murder charges filed at the regional trial court in Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro.
Pesante-USA learned through media sources that around 15 armed men in civilian clothes arrested Galit, an officer of the Katipunan ng mga Samahang Magbubukid sa Timog Katagalugan and spokesperson of the Katipunan ng mga Magbubukid sa Kabite, said his wife Patricia who witnessed the arrest at their house.

She added that her husband, a diabetic, has been bedridden for about a year now and was scheduled to undergo an operation. Calabarzon police director Chief Supt. Ricardo Padilla confirmed the arrest conducted by joint forces of the Cavite police and regional intelligence at around 7:30 p.m., saying, it is just an implementation of the warrant of arrest.

Pesante Condemns Military Witch Hunt

Pesante-USA said that it is absurd and highly suspicious that the AFP and the PNP will linked peasant activist to the NPA. This is just a case of large scale witchhunt against the activists in the Philipppines. declared Pesante coordinator Al P. Garcia.

Prior to the warrants, a separate case has been filed against several activists of Southern Tagalog in connection with the burning of the Globe cell site in Lemery, Batangas, said the militant fisherfolk group Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (Pamalakaya).

Three of the accused Kilusang Mayo Uno lawyer Remigio Saladero, Nestor San Jose and Crispin Zapanta are detained at the Calapan City jail.

Pesante learned that Included in the charge sheet obtained by Karapatan lawyers were Arman Albarillo, Bayani Cambronero, Rolando Mingo, Orly Marcellana, Doris Cuario, Helen Asdolo, Luz Baculo, Emmanuel Asuncion and Emmanuel Dioneda. 


The charges filed at the Calapan City Regional Trial Court under Judge Tomas Leynes were connected to an ambush by suspected New Peoples Army rebels in Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro on March 3, 2006. 


Before Saladeros arrest on Oct. 23, Globe Telecom filed charges against 27 people before the Batangas prosecutors office implicating him in the burning and bombing of a Globe cell site in Lemery, Batangas on Aug. 2. 

Globe Telecom said 27 people, mostly activists, committed arson, destruction of private property and conspiracy to commit rebellion.

The names of 17 people in the case in Batangas appeared likewise in the Puerto Galera case.
