Doctor slams Satur Ocampo for using Indigenous People for own gains: “Ginagamit niyo ang mga Lumad para sa inyong propaganda!”

2148

A doctor who works at the Ministry of Heath in Oman criticized former Bayan Muna party-list Rep. Satur Ocampo and ACT-Teachers party-list France Castro for trying to convince the people that they’re helping the Lumad people without any conditions.

In her post, Rolaiza Mimi Singayao wrote an open letter to Ocampo and Castro, questioning why the two known activists are treating the Indigenous people (IP) as toys that they can use for their propaganda.

She questioned the reasoning of the left leaders, saying that why the group of Ocampo didn’t inform the tribal leaders and the parents of the minor lumads that they’re trying to transport outside Davao Del Norte.

According to Singayao, if Ocampo really wanted to help the minor lumad, they should inform the government first and coordinate with them before doing their mission.

“ANONG MISYON?
ANONG AKALA NINYO SA MGA LUMAD, MGA LARUANG TRAK-TRAK NA KAKARAY-KARAYIN PARA SA INYONG PROPAGANDA?

Kung humingi ng tulong ang mga guro at mag aaral na mga Lumad dahil umano pinaaalis sila ng military sa kanilang eskwelahan, bakit sina dating BAYAN representative Satur Ocampo at Teachers ACT-Partylist representative France Castro lang ang ‘sasagip’ at ilululan ang hindi pa mabilang na mga menor de edad na kabataan sa 5 van na na alto ng mga kapulisan sa Talaingud, Davao Del Norte?

Bakit walang kasamang mga magulang o Tribal leaders ang mga batang mag-aaral? Saan ninyo sila dadalhin, Satur? May permiso ba ang komunidad , magulang o guardians? Pakita kayo ng signed waiver ng mga parents allowing you to take out their children from the school.

Informed at may DepEd representative ba? Nag report ba sa concerned gov’t authorities? Nakipag-coordinate o humingi ba ng alalay sina Satur sa LGU, DSWD, militar o kapulisan?

May inisyal na report na umaabot sa 70 church workers, guro at Lumad na mag aaral ang tinansport ni Satur at Castro. Patungo saan? Saan ninyo sila dadalhin?

Tinatrato ninyong tila laruang trak-trak ang mga kabataang Lumad. Karay-karayin kahit saan nyo nais? Gagamitin sa inyong propaganda?

Mga ginikanan, Datu ug elders, kuhaa inyong mga bata gikan sa kamot aning mga terorista! Pahilayo mo ana nila. (Mga magulang, Datu at elders kunin ninyo ang inyong mga anak sa kamay ng mga terorista! Lumayo kayo sa kanila).

Ma-u ning hangyu sa atu tanan nga tribu: Ayaw pagamit sa NDF, CPP-NPA ug sa ilang mga ‘legal’ nga NGOs.”

Several days ago, Ocampo and Castro have been arrested by the authorities for ‘illegally transporting’ minors without the consent of their parents and tribe leaders.

Even some tribal leaders expressed their disappointment to the camp of Ocampo, saying that they should inform the tribe first before transporting their members in other places.
