Fearless Davao Lawyer Slams Satur Ocampo For The Exploitation And Poisoning The Minds Of The Lumad Youth



Davao lawyer and online influencer Ahmed Paglinawan slammed his former idol Satur Ocampo for exploiting the Lumads and pillaging them and their children. He also accused the former Bayan Muna representative of not being a communist, but worst, being a colonialist.

Admiration To Hatred

In a post he shared on Facebook, Ahmed Paglinawan said that he used to be a follower of Satur Ocampo during his UP Diliman days. Being an activist, he admired Ocampo for his role as a stalwart of progressive education.

Unfortunately, Paglinawan said that Ocampo changed for the worst. He was blinded by his political ambitions and became the very person that Ocampo himself hated. “You have become what and whom we hated”, Paglinawan said.

Ocampo And The Lumads

Paglinawan said that Ocampo has exploited and poisoned the minds of the Lumad youth. He accused the National Democratic Front co-founder of destroying the value of education and plundering the Lumads and their children.

Paglinawan’s outburst came in the midst of Ocampo’s arrest in Davao Del Norte after he was found to be illegally holding and trafficking minors. He was with ACT representative France Castro when they were apprehended and arrested.

Ocampo, Castro and 17 others have been charged with human trafficking as well as the violation of RA 7610 or the Special Protection of Children against Abuse, Exploitation, and Discrimination. The suspects have undergone inquest proceedings in Tagum City.

Makabayan Bloc Reacts

Meanwhile, the Makabayan Bloc condemned the arrest of Ocampo and the others, saying that the charges of human trafficking was simply fabricated. The progressive group said that Ocampo and the others were delegates of the NSM or National Solidarity Mission and that they were there to provide food packs to the Lumads who were facing threats from the paramilitary group Alamara and the Philippine Army.

"Satur Ocampo:

You were a stalwart of progressive education in Diliman. I followed you always.

Now you are attacking the Lumad youth by exploiting their poverty and poisoning their education.
And for what, motherfucker? For Joma's vintage 70s socialist experiment?

Put*ng ina mo, Satur. You have become what and whom we hated.

I will prosecute your f*cking face myself. For the destruction of the value of education and the depredation of the Lumad and their children.

You are not a communist, Satur. You are an old Sino-Russian colonialist.

*sshole."
