Six DavNor villages declare Reds ‘persona non-grata’

Slowly the numbers of local government units declaring the communists not welcome in their respective jurisdictions are growing.

Six villages from Sto. Tomas Davao del Norte joins the growing list of provinces in the country declaring the Communist Party of the Philippines- New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) persona non grata.

Philippine Army's 1003rd Infantry Brigade commander, Colonel Nolasco Mempin. identified the six barangays as New Visayas, Balagunan, San Jose, Magwawa, Bobongon, and Tulalian.

Mempin said the six barangays are located within the boundaries of Paquibato District in this city and Talaingod, Davao del Norte, making the areas "vulnerable to the mobility of the communist group."

Mayor Ernesto Evangelista led the ceremonial signing of the joint resolution declaring the communist rebels "unacceptable". 

Evangelista also took note of the local government units in implementing Executive Order 70 that seeks to end local communist armed conflict by institutionalizing the “whole-of-nation approach.”

The mayor said the resolution was a bold move considering the CPP-NPA group within the Davao Region, particularly in areas under the operational jurisdiction of the Army’s 89 Infantry (Makatao) Battalion.

He urged the barangay officials “to keep an eye to the community, to stay vigilant and to report any possible actions of the communist group" to Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP)
