These individuals are residents of barangay Quezon, Guadalupe, Nataban, Codcod and Buluangan all of San Carlos City. The protesters marched in the streets of the city proper carrying placards and tarpaulins denouncing the CPP-NPA Terrorist. They also expressed their fervent desire for a peaceful and NPA-free community. To highlight the said activity, the protesters burned the CPP-NPA Terrorist flags as their way of showing their disgust to the group. Earlier, the 257 former mass supporters underwent 2-day live-in seminar that commenced last April 06 at San Carlos Auditorium. It was conceptualized by the 79th Infantry Battalion under the leadership of Lt. Col. Emelito Thaddeus Logan in partnership with the 33rd CMO Company of the 3rd Civil Military Operations Battalion. The seminar was filled with discussions about the ills of communism. Leiutenant Colonel Emelito Thaddeus Logan said “This is the result of our strategized localized peace talk initiatives in collaboration with the PNP,LGU-San Carlos and other government agencies in Negros. Our collaboration successfully reached out to the families and immediate communities of the members of the CPP-NPA Terrorist to make sure that the purpose of our initiatives will be understood by these individuals. Aside from our sincerity in helping them start a new life, their decade long sufferings from the cruelty of the communist terrorist group made them decide to desert the communist terrorist group.” It can be recalled that in February of 2019 alone, a total of 229 former supporters of CPP-NPA Terrorist from the insurgency-affected barangays of Sagay, Escalante, Cadiz, Victorias and San Carlos Cities and the municipalities of Manapla and E.B Magalona took their oath of allegiance to the government.

Project Baro is a sustainable livelihood project that aims to promote and sustain the indigenous art of weaving in the country. It hopes to improve the economic conditions of its partner communities by building their capacities. Aside from the provision of trainings on various weaving techniques, raw materials and equipment to weavers, the project will also help increase their income through market linkage and access. “It is important for the project to go full circle as the equipment and trainings will find no use if there is no market for them to sell their goods,” said NGCP. The collaboration between NGCP and Laurel will see the use of Iloilo’s Hablon fabric, produced by member-weavers of the Miagao Weavers’ Association (MWA), in NGCP’s corporate uniforms. Laurel’s company, Laurel et Ross, which has been in the business of masterfully crafting uniform designs since 2001, will oversee the design and production of said uniforms. “We believe that we should not stop our efforts by just giving them tools and trainings, but also keep them relevant by linking the communities with local and international entrepreneurs who are able to see the quality and design of Filipinos,” explained NGCP. Laurel, for his part, expressed his excitement over the project. “Weaving is a very strong, significant symbol of our country. Miagao is one of the most popular weaving communities and it is very important to not allow this identity to disappear. I’m very happy that NGCP got me for this project as this will help a lot of weavers,” Laurel said. Around 75 weavers are expected to benefit from the project. Aside from the MWA, NGCP also supports member-weavers of Kalinga Indigenou s Weaver s’ Association (KINWA) Etnika in Kalinga and Buhi OTOP Key Players Association (BOKPA) in Camarines Sur.
