OF LIVES AND SACRIFICES FOR THE PEOPLE
On December 1987, Edwin Laguerder (Batch '79, UP), an adviser of a farmers' organization in Davao, was brutally murdered by unidentified men.
The following month, Bernie de Guzman (Batch '82, Chevalier School, Angeles City) who joined the left, was gunned down along with his companion by the Philippine Constabulary (now known as the Philippine National Police) troopers in Tarlac City.
On July and September of 1988, Benito Clutario (Batch '77, UP) of the Kilusang Mayo Uno (May First Movement or KMU, the most militant nationalist workers' union in the Philippines) and Benjamin Lazaro (Batch '77-C. UP) of the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) involuntarily disappeared at the height of the rising number of desaparecidos.
Many more Brothers from the other chapters and fields of work were either killed, arrested, or have simply disappeared especially in Mindanao.
The Fraternity has instilled the ultimate expression of service to the people. The Fraternity salutes the brods who have offered time, their thoughts, and even lives for freedom, justice and democracy. (excerpts from The History of Pi Sigma)
