During the Inter-Agency Visitation to the Subanen Cultural Communities/Indigenous People in Zamboanga Peninsula, RTF-ELCAC line government agencies assured to continuously advocate empowerment to the IP communities. Empowering these IP communities would serve very vital to the campaign of NTF-70 since, most affected individuals that have become victims of wrong ideologies of communists are reportedly from their communities. “More than 95 percent na mga nare-recruit ng mga NPA ay galing sa hanay ng mga IP" (More 95% of the IP communities are being recruited by the NPA),” revealed by RTF Chairman

As what the local government sees why it does not push through with the IPMR here, “it would be a cause of conflict to the different existing tribes in the province aside from Subanen,” the mayor added.
