Various company facilities were torched and at least four service arms were confiscated by the NPA in a raid in Sumifru Corporation’s banana plantation in Sityo Lakag, Brgy. New Dumangas, T’boli, South Cotabato. The attack took place at around 10:30 in the evening in October 2, 2017.
The raid which was carried out by the Neptune Unit of the Mt. Musa Subregional Operations Command of the NPA-FSMR is a punitive action meted against the multinational agri-corporation for its persistent land grabbing, environmental destructions and unjust labor policies.
The NPA Red fighters confiscated two 9mm handguns, two shotguns, and two handheld radios from the security guards on duty. They also burned down a container van, two tanker trucks, a packing plant and a warehouse building.
The damages to company properties figure to a total of at least six million pesos.
The NPA-FSMR is ever determined to ceaselessly defend the people against local and foreign plunderers. It is set to pull off further punitive actions amidst the all-out war of the US-Duterte regime that clearly stands for the oligarchs.
