Weeping mom to Elago: 'We are getting sick from worrying'

Weeping mom to Elago: 'We are getting sick from worrying'

A few weeks ago the nation witnessed a grieving mother crying and weeping loudly in front of senators, pleading to the public officials to do something so that she can take back her daughter from the clutches of the communists that recruited her.

Parents of those missing students recruited as activists by the communist groups staged a rally on their way to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for a chance to publicly voice their emotions against militant groups, amid the issue on the alleged recruitment of minors by these leftist organizations.

The parents have grouped themselves and filed a petition with the DOJ for a writ of habeas corpus against Kabataan Patylist Rep. Sarah Elago to produce the minors who were recruited into the progressive youth groups.

Speaking for the group Elvie Caalaman, expressed her frustration on Elago.

“Alam naman ni Sarah Elago na hinahanap ko ang anak ko eh, bakit hanggang ngayon nasa headquarters pa rin nila. Kung anong ideolohiya ang nilalagay sa utak nila tapos ginagawang aktibista, kalaunan ginagawang NPA. (Sarah Elago knows I am looking for my daughter, but why are they still kept in their headquarters? You put ideologies in their young minds and then make activists out of them that usually ends being one of New People’s Army rebels),” Caalaman said.

Caalaman is looking for her 16-year old daughter, Lorevie.

Lorevie is a student in Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) but was recruited into the, Kabataan Partylist.
Caalaman said her daughter joining the group brought about a huge impact on her child's personality, who eventually quit school and left home.
“Alam mo, bago kayo makilala nila, bago pumasok sa unibersidad yan, may mga pangarap yan sa buhay, isauli mo na sa amin (You know, before our children met you and before they entered the universities, they had dreams),” she said.
“Ang tagal na namin hinahanap sila, kaming mga magulang sobra na kaming nahihirapan. Nagkakasakit na sa sobrang stress dahil sa ginagawa nyo Sarah Elago, Anakbayan, (Bayan Muna Party-list Rep. Carlos) Zarate sino pa kayong mga tao na walang puso, mga Pilipino ba kayo o talagang pera-pera lang? (We have been searching for them for a long time. I and the other parents are getting sick from all the troubles and worries we get because of Sarah Elago, Anakbayan, Carlos Zarate, and the others who don’t have a heart. Do you consider yourselves Filipinos or is this all just a scheme for money?),” Caalaman added.
