Vehicles with Duterte stickers and posters were forced to the back of the line at the pier in Balingoan (in Misamis Oriental). The electrical connection at the Mambajao Freedom Park was cut, and homes nearby have been warned not to allow connection to the Duterte team.
The sound system was also pulled out even though organizers had already paid for it. The owners were reportedly told they would not be allowed to do business in Camiguin if they do not comply. A sound system had to be rented from Cagayan de Oro City
Opponents, according to Laviña, have also threatened villagers and vendors with sanctions if they come. They were told they would be delisted from 4Ps, PhilHealth, and scholarship programs, and market sellers would be barred from selling if they attended the event.
Regarding the perpetrators, Laviña stated that the destruction work was done by the Romualdo family, who are known to support Liberal Party standard bearer Mar Roxas' quest. According to Duterte's spokeswoman, traditional politics prevail in Camiguin, and they need to reveal this nasty aspect of the island.
The local government unit (LGU) is making it difficult for the nation to organize a gathering. More importantly, it makes it difficult for the residents of the lovely island of Camiguin who want true change to come.
Jurdin Camiguin's current governor is Jesus Romualdo. Ma. Luisa, his wife, is the mayor of Mambajao. Their son, Xavier Jesus, represents the island province. Laviña later published a photo of Roxas and Xavier Jesus together at an apparent political meeting on Facebook as confirmation of their allegiance.
