Sorsogon youth mount ‘oplan pinta’ against militarization
To manifest the people’s indignation over continuing fascist abuses by the 31st IB in the barangays of Donsol, Sorsogon, youths launched “oplan pinta” (painting slogans) along the roads at the center of Donsol.
Among the brave words painted by the youth are “31st IB out! Murderers!”, “AFP terrorists”, “Oust Marcos Jr!”. This lends voice to the Donsol people’s opposition to the fascist troops’ operations in their town.
According to the youths, this is their response to the shooting by the 31st IB on August 4 on the house of Barangay Alin Captain Erwin Vista who is also president of the Association of Barangay Captains (ABC). Soldiers conducted an RCSP operation in the said barangay last August.
Apart from combat operations in Donsol, soldiers also launched RCSP operations in Barangay Migabod and Barangay Catamlangan in Pilar town.
