#Remember Datu Arpe Belayong, lumad leader killed due to their opposition to the mining activities within their ancestral land, 20 June 2011.

The killing of Arpe “Datu Lapugotan” Belayong was committed by members of the paramilitary groups Salakawan, led by a certain Laging Binsalan. Also killed on that fateful morning was his nephew Sulte San-ogan, when Binsalan’s group opened fire indiscriminately on the victims’ kubo in Mt. Manalog in Calabuan, Esperanza, Agusan del Sur.

Injured were Belayong’s children aged 14 and four.
In 2009, Belayong’s elder brother, Datu Mampaagi Belayong was also killed by members of the paramilitary groups Task Force Gantangan-Bagani Force and the Bungkatol Liberation Front. (Source: http://www.piplinks.org/ip-group,-supporters-call-congressional-inquiry-killings-lumad-leaders)
