From the latest English edition of Ang Bayan posted to the CPP Website (Feb 7): NPA attacks energy company
A New People’s Army unit attacked one of the plants of the Philippine Hybrid Energy Systems Inc (PHESI) in Tabinay Liit, Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro on January 23.
The Red fighters burned a backhoe owned by the company. The attack served as a warning to the company to give consideration to environmental issues and respect the rights of the area’s residents.
Two days after this armed action, Red fighters clashed with a unit of the PNP Regional Public Safety Battalion in Barangay Talipanan, Puerto Galera. Two police elements were killed and nine wounded in this encounter.
