The Marine Batallion Landing Team 4 (MBLT 4) conducted an information drive against the communist armed conflict among students of the Aramaywan National High School in Narra town last week.
Lt. Col. Prisco T. Tabo, commanding officer of the MBLT 4, said the activity is part of their stepped up efforts to curb attempts of the New People’s Army (NPA) recruitment among the youth.
“We are doing this para makapagbigay tayo ng awareness sa mga bata o sa mga estudyante ng information against sa possible recruitment of terrorist groups,” Tabo said.
Tabo said they will be conducting more awareness-raising campaigns in other schools in southern Palawan aimed at stopping the recruitment of young people into the rebel movement.
Principal 3 Joy E. Galgo of Aramaywan National High School told Palawan News the awareness campaign was welcomed by the school and students.
The activity culminated with the signing of a manifesto by the students and the declaration of persona non grata against the NPA.
