Dear friends,

Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) writes to inform you about the harassment of Emily Fajardo, a community organizer assisting the Federation of Lamao Concerned Citizens, Inc. (FLACCI) in Barangay Lamao, Limay, Bataan.

CASE DETAILS:

Emily Fajardo is a community organizer assisting the Federation of Lamao Concerned Citizens, Inc. (FLACCI) in their fight against the Philippine National Oil Company (PNOC) in Barangay Lamao, Limay, Bataan.

Fajardo and the other FLACCI organizers were invited by a barangay councilor who was supportive of the group’s cause to two Barangay Council sessions last May to give talks to Barangay officials about the harmful effects of coal plants to the environment. However, they were not allowed to continue with the talk as this was allegedly the time that the issues regarding PNOC’s project was being decided upon.

Among the issues were PNOC’s land ownership claim, the proposal for the conversion of the nearby river to a commercial port for use of PNOC, Petron and San Miguel Corporation, and the alleged absence of a barangay hosting resolution. The resolution was one of the legalities needed for PNOC’s coal refinery project, but which would also mean that PNOC and the Barangay had to have had public consultations and dialogues before their project could continue – but no public consultation was ever done.

Fajardo was later informed that some of the Barangay Council members were reluctant to let the group speak because they were “communists”. She was told that they were termed “pulahan” by some of the council members.

CASE BACKGROUND:

In 2009, Emily Fajardo received death threats in relation to her then work with the Nuclear Free Bataan Movement (NFBM). The death threat was sent via text which also tagged Fajardo as “communist”. Some NFBM members, along with Fajardo were also followed by policemen whenever they were doing public addresses, fora, etc. According to Fajardo, this incident has been previously documented.

Dear friends,

On the day of the incident, BFA members were plowing the field when 50 unidentified bolo and machete-wielding Fran Farm Workers led by Doroy arrived and surrounded them.

According to Rosenda Apay, BFA chairperson, the members stopped plowing and returned to their houses within the farm premises. The tarpaulins where their rights to the ownership of the land were printed were destroyed by Doroy.

On May 27, 2015, around 10:00 a.m., 20 unidentified men with bolos and machetes took over the land where the BFA members planted and plowed.

Apay narrated that several unidentified men with bolos and machetes have been coming in and out of the area since their self installation. They seemed to survey the farm and were taking videos and photos of the beneficiaries while they engage in farming activities.

On June 5, 2015, the farmer beneficiaries asked the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) to put up a military or police detachment to keep the place peaceful.
