Sa serye ng social media posts ni Presidential Communication Operation Office (PCOO) Udersecretary Lorraine Badoy, ipinakita nioya ang mga kahayupan na ginawa ng rebeldeng komunista na New People’s Army (NPA).
Isa na dito ay ang litrato ng Rano Massacre na nangyari sa Mindanao noong Hunyo 25, 1989.
Sa isang artikulo mula sa Philippine News Agency noong Hunyo 2020, idinetalye ng saksi ang nangyaring lagim. Emosyonal na ibinahagi ni Helen Dominguez ang karumaldumal na araw sa kanyang buhay. Ayon kay Dominguez, walang-awa raw na pinaslang ng mga rebeldeng komunista ang mga sibilyan. Pati ang asawang niyang pastor ay dinamay din ng mga NPA.
“I ran and hid through the squash plants with my four-year-old child and prayed to God that we be spared from harm. I heard people screaming and begging for help but Besnar ordered his men to fire at them… Gunfire stopped at about noon, but what brought shivers down my spine was when I heard the perpetrators singing and laughing inside the chapel… They beheaded my husband. I lost five members of my family. You just don’t know how painful it is,” salaysay ni Dominguez .
“These shameless bastards have managed to clothe themselves in respectability and walk the halls of the church, of media, of the academe, the halls of power in Congress and almost all agencies of government and are accorded the title “Honorable” while they crush dreams and break the hearts of our people… I am standing here to tell you that this is no longer true. We weep with you and feel in our hearts the pain of your loss and the tragic end to each of those lives- innocent children among them whose lives were snuffed out even before they could begin to truly live,” sabi ni Badoy.
