A Parents-Teachers Association or PTA recently drove out the soldiers of the 68th IB who were encamped around the Redhills National High School of Calintaan, Occidental Mindoro.

Teachers and parents filed a complaint before the village captain of Barangay New Dagupan demanding the removal of the 68th IB’s camp established since July 2022 in the school’s vicinity.

The military camp was built a month prior to the opening of face-to-face classes. Fascist soldiers have built 68 of 100 structures planned in the camp at the time the petition was filed.

Drinking and the soldiers’ lack of consideration for civilian welfare are among the many reasons that intensified the desire of teachers and parents to drive them away.

In addition, soldiers were poisoning the minds of the youth to make them accept mandatory ROTC. Soldiers meddled in the career orientation held at the school. They made students who had no uniform for their desired college course to wear combat fatigues.

Meanwhile, the NPA-Negros conducted another action against landlord Teotimo ‘Tim’ Ballesteros. On December 26, 2022, they paralyzed three more trucks of the notorious landlord in Sitio Carbon, Barangay San Isidro, Toboso, Negros Occidental. This followed the earlier sanction on December 14, 2022.
