Duterte is either trying to sound less hostile to the revolutionary movement or he is still hostile by trying to bribe the NPA fighters to surrender.

The National Democratic Front in Southern Mindanao vehemently condemned the US-Duterte regime for actively conniving and abetting the rapacious stance of the Japanese banana firm Sumitomo Fruits Corp. (SUMIFRU) that brutally dispersed the strike camps of 789 workers of the Nagkahiusang Mamumuo sa Sayupa Farms (NAMASUFA) on October 11, 2018 in Compostela town, Compostela Valley.
The National Democratic Front of the Philippines–North Eastern Mindanao Region (NDFP-NEMR) along with all the revolutionary forces in the region strongly condemn and call on the people to make the US-Duterte regime answer for the deliberate manipulation of the economy that has resulted to severe rice crisis and price increases of goods in the country in order for the foreign monopoly capitalists, big bourgeois compradors and landlords to gain even greater profits.
The NDFP-Mindanao is one with the struggle of the Filipino peasantry, especially the poor and middle farmers, in Mindanao, who, along with hapless Filipino workers and other toiling classes in the country, bear the brunt of the current rice crisis, high inflation, military onslaught, and the semi-feudal exploitation and oppression maintained and exacerbated presently by the US-Duterte regime.

It is fine that Duterte admits lately that tough economic times are ahead for the Filipino people who are now already reeling from the inflationary conditions. He contradicts his previous declaration in Bali that the Philippine economy is on an upward trajectory.
Defense Secretary Lorenzana yesterday made himself look stupid by claiming that the AFP has successfully foiled “Red October,” a “plot” which they themselves invented. This is after several weeks of failing to convince the incredulous public of the existence of a supposed “conspiracy” between various political forces with the CPP to oust Duterte and instead rousing widespread indignation and display of vigilance against Duterte’s insidious plans.
In desperation to perpetuate itself in power, it is expected that the US-Duterte regime will use all sinister means, not least conspiracy theories, to justify its rising tyranny against the people. As the AFP’s Eastern Mindanao Command tries urgently to whip up hysteria with the regime’s self-concocted Red October plot, the New People’s Army units in the region are frustrating the enemy’s encirclement campaigns through intensified guerrilla warfare.
The US-Duterte Regime is mistaken in red-tagging activists and persecuting Duterte’s critics as this will only intensify the people’s rage and its growing resistance against the current fascist, corrupt and puppet regime. It is assuring the broadening of the united front that will bring Duterte to his downfall.
Duterte’s call on AFP and PNP units to “neutralize” the NPA and to shoot even captured revolutionaries is an open endorsement for the AFP to kill with impunity. It highlights anew his regime’s contempt for international humanitarian law (IHL) and due process.
