Case:                                     Harassment
Name of Victims:             Ernie Gonzales Quisora; John Clifford C. Bisol; Eduardo V. Muerong, Jr.; Daisy Mae M. Viola; Leneth F. Bacsal; Crystal Ann P. Lusuego; Applye B. Estuye; Jimbo R. Cruz; Rowel D.G. Chavez; and, Rheginald C. Padua
Date of Incident:              October 2014
Place of Incident:             Office of the City Prosecutor, Quezon City
Alleged Perpetrator:      Mr. Joseph D. Quiles
Motive:                                retribution against student leaders who supported/participated in the protest action initiated by faculty members

Account of the Incident:

Mr. Joseph D. Quiles, an instructor at the Marikina Polytechnic College, filed a perjury case (Article 183 of the Revised Penal Code) against: 1) Ernie Quisora, 2) John Clifford C. Bisol, 3) Eduardo V. Muerong, Jr., 4) Daisy Mae M. Viola, 5) Leneth F. Bacsal, 6) Crystal Ann P. Lusuego, 7) Applye B. Estuye, 8) Jimbo R. Cruz, 9) Rowel D.G. Chavez, and 10) Rheginald C. Padua.

The said case is filed at the office of Assistant City Prosecutor Conrado C. Rosario. By virtue of a subpoena sent to Quisora and the other respondents, they already appeared in the preliminary investigation conducted on October 2, 2014, held at the Office of the Prosecutor.

Based on previous accounts, it has been reported that Quisora, a student of Marikina Polytechnic College, and a Student Council volunteer, suffered minor injuries during a scuffle between him and Mr. Quiles, a college professor. Quisora suffered a bruise on his left hand. He also felt pain on his nape. The incident happened on December 20, 2013. Quiles and school guards alleged that Quisora is a supporter of the protest action conducted by the faculty association.

Quisora and other student leaders already filed a formal complaint to the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) and Civil Service Commission (CSC) against Quiles.

Quiles filed the perjury case apparently as retribution and a counter attack against leaders and advocates of students’ rights and welfare, particularly members and volunteers of the Student Council.

In support of seeking justice for the widow of Menelao “Ka Melon” Barcia, the Archdiocese of Pampanga, Catholic Bishop’s Conference of the Philippines-National Secretariat for Social Action (CBCP-NASSA), and various human rights groups call on the attention of the government by showing concrete action to stop the violence in Hacienda Dolores, Porac, Pampanga.

Ka Melon, 57 years old, was driving to his house in his owner type jeep with his wife and niece on May 2, 2014 in the evening, when he was ambushed in Purok 3, Barangay Manibaug Paralaya in Porac, Pampanga, and shot at close range by still an unidentified individual. Based on reports, he was hit at the neck, lost control of the jeep and bumped a parked truck. The assailant followed up and shot him four times on the chest, which killed him instantly. Ka Melon’s wife was also hit with gunshots in her extremities that need surgery. His niece was not hurt in the attack.

10333354_760549450643243_5522123588724459289_oAs the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program Extension with Reforms (CARPer) come to a close this June 2014, color of agrarian lands turn red. The killing of farmer-leader and human rights defender Menelao Barcia on May 2  have starkly brought to fore the gravity of the situation in Hacienda Dolores, Porac, Pampanga.  

How much worse does it have to get, before those who can bring the agrarian struggle in Hacienda Dolores to an end, especially President Noynoy Aquino, decide to do so?

Ka Melon and his wife, Maria were ambushed at around 9 o’clock in the evening last May 2, 2014 in Purok 3, Barangay Manibaug Paralaya in Porac, Pampanga. He was rushed to the hospital but declared dead on arrival while his wife survived the attack with gunshots in her extremities that need surgery. Ka Melon, a barangay kagawad of Barangay Hacienda Dolores, was also one of the leaders of the Aniban ng Nagkakaisang Mamamayan sa Hacienda Dolores (ANIBAN), a group that claims ownership of Hacienda Dolores by virtue of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program.

The killing of Ka Melon raises questions: Is it just the latest in the long list of attacks and violence committed in Hacienda Dolores? Is is the handiwork of the same armed security personnel of private landowners targeting farmer-leaders and human rights defenders asserting their right to land? Many such attacks have gone largely unnoticed or unreported at the national level, but have served to accentuate the spiral of violence within the Hacienda Dolores itself.
