CPP/Ang Bayan: PAMANA and Kalahi-CDISS, counter-revolutionary and anti-development

Ang Bayan article posted to the CPP Website (Nov 7): PAMANA at Kalahi-CIDSS, kontra-rebolusyonaryo at kontra-kaunlaran (PAMANA and Kalahi-CDISS, counter-revolutionary and anti-development)

[The following is gist of key points in the article.  My Tagalog is too rusty to do a verbatim translation]

PAMANA and Kalahi-CDISS are two programs that are implemented as part of the counter-revolutionary war Oplan Bayanihan (OPB).  The 1.9 billion pesos dedicated to these programs are part of the psywar efforts of the U.S.-Aquino regime.under the Office of the Presidential Advisor on the Peace Process (OPAPP). In Eastern Visayas, funds were poured into the area believed to be under the control of the powerful revolutionary movement, including the province of Samar, which was given  P17.6 million. In June, PAMANA launched projects in 60 villages in order to fight the forces of the New People's Army.... Obviously these progarms are part of Oplan Bayanihan and are implemented by the Civil-Military Operations (CMO) Battalion of the AFP rather than by the civilian personnel/agencies of the reactionary government. The implementation of these programs include  propaganda activities against the revolutionary movement and the establishment of intelligence net in the area.....

  1. An indicator that the PAMANA and Kalahi-CDISS programs are effective and are of concern to the NPA insurgents. If the programs were ineffective the commies wouldn't bother with propaganda efforts to discredit them.
