Neighborhood associations were formed through the Kapisanan ng Paglilingkod sa Bagong Pilipinas (KALIBAPI) “for [the] mutual benefit and protection of all families in the neighborhood.” However, the associations also served to better monitor and control the movement of civilians, many of whom supported or joined the guerrillas.
