The Armando Sumayang Command of the New People’s Army South Western Command paid their last tribute to its fallen comrade and added her to their roster of martyrs. In an email statement, Ka Andrea Guerrero, spokesperson of the Armando Sumayang Command, said the revolutionary movement mourned yet felt proud of the martyrdom of Julia Pacheco Tabat, alias Ka Julia/Pinay/Gab who died in a gun battle with elements of the Philippine Army in Barangay East, Candoni town last October 30. Guerrero said Ka Julia had already reached the highest form of dignity by offering her life in fighting against the fascist military. She said Ka Julia is well loved all over the CHICKS (Candoni, Sipalay, Hinobaan, Ilog, Kabankalan and Cauayan) area because of her dedication to the cause she was fighting for. Guerrero revealed that Ka Julia had long served the masses by being active in activities of the church, organizer of the Kristianong Katilingban and even served as volunteer technician for sustainable agriculture in southern Negros.... The rebel spokesperson confirmed that Ka Julia, who graduated as high school salutatorian and finished a college degree in forestry, served as medical officer of the Armando Sumayang Command when she was killed in action in Candoni.
