On the current drive of Duterte to realize a fascist dictatorship a la Marcos

September 24, 2018

Duterte and his military minions and propagandists are now frenziedly carrying out a psywar campaign to glorify the Marcos fascist dictatorship and to fabricate conspiracies to justify the eventual declaration of martial law nationwide and further realize Duterte´s scheme of fascist dictatorship.

There is no conspiracy between the CPP-NPA-NDFP and Liberal Party for the purposes claimed by Duterte and the military. Duterte and the military keep on insisting that there is such a conspiracy, a September plot to kill Duterte and a Red October plan to oust him.

Not satisfied with the atrocities that they are already inflicting on the civilian population in the urban poor areas and countryside, they wish to suppress the broad united front and political struggle of patriotic and progressive forces and the broad masses of the people. They are misrepresenting the broad coalition against tyranny as a mere conspiracy for them to suppress with state terrorism.

They are poised to do a series of antidemocratic actions like militarizing civil agencies of the government under an inter-agency task force, making Bongbong Marcos the Vice President and declaring martial law or state of emergency nationwide. These are the actions that will precisely ignite a people´s uprising to oust Duterte.

The military will be wasting their personnel by trying to command civilian agencies and will be sucking up the tax revenues of the government by trying to increase military personnel and so-called military-civilian operations.

Duterte is really crazy by trying hard to bring the country to perdition or hell. Peace negotiations would have been a more economical effort of the Duterte regime were it not for its mania for fascist dictatorship.###

Unite and oust the dictator US-Duterte regime

On the 46th anniversary of Marcos Martial Law Declaration
Statement | September 21, 2018

Today, September 21, 2018 let us commemorate the 46th anniversary of the declaration of the dictator Marcos’ martial law by strengthening our fight against Duterte’s martial law in Mindanao and its widespread tyranny elsewhere in the Philippines. Let the sacrifice of hundreds of martyrs of the 20 year Marcos dictatorship and current martial law in Mindanao, be our inspiration in overthrowing the equally despotic US-Duterte regime by intensifying the people’s war.

Much worse than during the Marcos dictatorship, the Philippines is in crisis: the inflation rate is at its highest at 6.4%; the value of the peso is at its lowest at 54php to a US dollar because of the increasing trade deficit; there is massive unemployment with more than 300,000 jobs lost under the Duterte administration resulting to more than 60 million Filipinos wallowing in grave poverty. The bungling programs of the Duterte administration exemplified by the imposition of TRAIN 1 and 2, has contributed so much in the suffering of the people because of the resulting price increases of basic commodities and utilities. The fact that a primarily agricultural country needs to import rice and a nation of more than 7,000 islands imports the poor man’s fish, galunggong, shows an utterly inutile and inept government, unable to feed its hungry people.

The promises of Duterte has been proven all bluster and hot air. It has resorted to the spreading of lies and diversions to cover its blunders, incompetence, corruption and oppression.

Totally abandoning national interests, Duterte is bowing down to his imperialist masters and continue to implement globalization of the economy. It has gifted China with oil exploration in the West Philippine Seas and perpetuates US intervention in the country.

It has failed to end illegal drugs, killed 12,000 small time drug pushers and users, mostly poor and including children, under its war against drugs while big time drug lords continue to thrive.

Corruption is ever more flourishing with the utterly corrupt Marcoses and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo once again in power along with the Dutertes and their minions. Duterte’s first born Paolo, according to reports, an occasional drug user like his fentanyl addicted father, is connected to the 64 million shabu shipment. The family of Duterte’s right hand man Bong Go is accused of amassing billions through the DPWH projects in Mindanao. Many of his political appointees accused of corruption, have just been reassigned to other government positions. In congress, the corrupt minions of the US-Duterte regime are fighting over control and share of the country’s coffers. Now led by Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Duterte allies in congress are shamelessly fighting over billions upon billions of the people’s money.

When leaders are inutile against social ails, they resort to state fascism in an attempt to quell the people’s anger. Like his idol Marcos, Duterte chose martial rule to run the country and ensure the plunder of the country’s resources by foreign and domestic capitalists and entrench himself in power. Duterte relies heavily on the military and police to perpetuate himself, appointing generals in key government positions, turning a blind eye to their blunders and feeding their greed, increasing salaries and defending soldiers and policemen as they commit crimes like torture, rape and massacre of civilians. He has encouraged the use of bandit paramilitaries to wreak havoc in the countryside.

It has turned its back to peace, unilaterally cancelling peace talks with the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) and implementing all-out war against the New People’s Army (NPA), declaring its end by the year 2019. It has signed the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) while attacking the Moro people in the guise of fighting terrorism. It tries to suppress the mounting anger of the people through sheer brutality with extra-judicial killings, trumped-up charges and arrests of activists, red-baiting and other vile human rights violations. It is attacking activists and human rights advocates , even the church and the media, in a bid to silence them. He is vilifying international humanitarian institutions, blacklisting and deporting human rights defenders, jailed political opponents like Senator de Lima and is now hell bent in arresting another senator, Trillanes.

The US-Duterte regime has imposed martial law in Mindanao, deploying more than half of its military units with its combat planes, canons and hi-tech military equipment to eliminate barriers against the entry of foreign oil palm plantations and mining in the island. He is responsible for the destruction of the City of Marawi and the killing 1,700 Moro civilians and relentless bombings of other Moro communities. His mercenary armed forces are implementing his order of bombing Lumad communities including schools and has carried out hamletting of communities, food blockades and other grave human rights violations resulting to the dislocation of thousands of Moro, Lumad and farmers. There have been 49 victims of extra-judicial killings, 22 cases of torture, 89 victims of illegal arrest and detention and 336,124 victims of indiscriminate gunfire and aerial bombings documented under his martial law in Mindanao. In Caraga alone, there are 9 battalions currently implementing counter-insurgency campaign plan Oplan Kalayaan, using criminal paramilitary forces and focusing its operations in the coal and mineral rich mountains of the Agusan-Surigao provinces. Such massive militarization have resulted to 10 cases of extra-judicial killings in Caraga, nine of which happened under martial law; 9 forcible evacuations of more than 3,000 individuals mostly from Lumad and peasant communities. 268 civilians are victims of trumped-up charges filed by PNP and military forces against progressives and activists.

Drunk with power, leaders never learn from the lessons of history that tells us that the more brutal the state becomes, the stronger the people’s movement will grow to overthrow such regime.

Contrary to the claims of the military, the NPA has been mounting more and more tactical offensives and has defended guerilla bases against the AFP and the PNP. Despite relentless combat operations and the use of technology such as military drones, it has failed to destroy even a single guerilla base in North Eastern Mindanao Region (NEMR) and has instead incurred several casualties. The Red fighters continue to defend the masses against the brutality of the AFP.

Meanwhile, the people in NEMR continue to resist even under martial law. More and more people are taking to the streets in protests, are exposing the corruption and condemning state fascism. The people of NEMR is joining the mounting clamor for the ouster of the fascist US-Duterte regime.

Let us all unite and oust Duterte and his minions from power through armed struggle and widespread protests and build a truly democratic society.

Imploding regime revives destabilization scare

NDFP National Council
Public Information Office

Press Statement | September 21, 2018

Having tried and failed to jail opposition Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV by way of a badly scripted scheme to void his amnesty, Rodrigo Duterte and his dirty band are once again raising the destabilization bogey in a desperate bid to wring some benefit out of their latest fiasco.

Again, we hear Duterte ramble that the botched move against Trillanes was necessary to avert an alleged destabilization plot involving Trillanes’ group, the “Yellows” and the “Reds” that will unfold on the 46th anniversary of Marcos’ martial law today and peak this October. 

As part of the drama, the recent bombings in Mindanao and supposed threats of bombings in Metro Manila are being blamed on the New People’s Army (NPA).

Duterte is obviously anxious about the growth of the broad united front against his rising tyranny. He knows that people of increasingly varied political persuasions are set to gather on the Marcosian martial law anniversary in a massive show of defiance against any plan by Duterte to replicate the dictatorship. So great is his panic that he has spread the intrigue that today’s mass action has been organized by the CPP-NPA-NDF. 

In truth, Duterte is his own biggest destabilizer. His clear drift towards tyrannical rule is being rejected by more and more Filipinos. His imposition of onerous taxes and his big-ticket infrastructure projects are fueling not just inflation but the people’s anger. His murderous war on drugs is causing more alarm as the bodies keep piling up.  Exposés of corruption involving persons within Duterte’s innermost circle are stoking further indignation. Worse, Duterte is obsessed with scapegoating other forces for his own epic fails.

Through their repressive and anti-people policies, Duterte and his minions are firing up mass unrest, thus worsening the regime’s isolation and further eroding what litte is left of its base of support. The Duterte regime shudders at the thought that it is being repudiated not only by the people at large but by its increasingly restive military and police forces. ###

Duterte must be held responsible – Jalandoni


By Luis G. Jalandoni
Senior Adviser, Negotiating Panel
National Democratic Front of the Philippines
Brussels, September 18-19, 2018

Distinguished Jurors of the International Peoples’ Tribunal on the Philippines, Claimant People’s Organizations, Lawyers, Solidarity Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen.

One of the biggest opportunities, if not the biggest, for President Rodrigo Duterte to serve the Filipino people is to foster the peace negotiations. This could not only solve the almost 50 year-old armed conflict but also lay the basis for responding to the deepest aspirations of the 75 million peasants for land and the entire nation for justice, democracy, progress and lasting peace.

Duterte’s termination of the peace talks on November 23, 2017 was a crushing blow to the people’s aspirations. The Lumad in Mindanao were shouting: “Bigas, Hindi Bala!” (“Rice not bullets!”), the children, “Lapis at papel, Hindi bomba at bala!” (Pencil and paper, not bombs and bullets!). Duterte ordered: “Bomb the schools!”

On November 22, negotiators of the government were with us in Utrecht. Bilateral teams of both Parties had met several times earlier in the month and completed and initialed the bilateral agreements on Agrarian Reform and Rural Development (ARRD) and National Industrialization and Economic Development (NIED), the first two major parts of the Comprehensive Agreement on Social and Economic Reforms (CASER). Both Parties were preparing for the resumption of the GRP-NDFP formal talks on November 25-27, 2017.

“We are being ordered to go home!”, so sounded the heartbreaking news from Secretary Silvestre Bello and Hernani Braganza of the GRP Negotiating Panel.

The proclamation on November 23 (Proclamation 360) was followed by President Duterte’s declaration of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and the New People’s Army (NPA) as terrorist organizations on December 5, 2017 (Proclamation 374).

This was followed in February 2018 by the proscription by a Regional Trial Court of more than 600 individuals as officers, members, and supporters of the CPP and NPA.

Back Channel Talks, March to June and Stand-Down Agreement on June 9, 2018
Despite these crushing blows, the NDFP agreed to hold back channel talks with the GRP from March to June 2018. On June 9, 2018, the GRP Panel Chairperson, Silvestre Bello signed together with NDFP Panel Chairperson Fidel Agcaoili the Stand Down Agreement. This would be announced by both in Manila on June 15.

This is the initial Ceasefire that would develop into a Coordinated Unilateral Ceasefire (CUC) that would in turn lead to a Bilateral CF. The back channel talks also agreed to have the Amnesty for all (503) political prisoners to be done at the scheduled resumption of formal talks in Oslo on June 28!

Duterte Cancels Talks on June 15, 2018
Alas, on June 15, after attending a meeting of the top military and police officers, President Duterte cancelled the talks, stating that he needed to review all the past agreements, and consult the public. Defense Secretary Lorenzana rejected the Stand Down Agreement, claiming that the NPA would take advantage of it. Duterte declared that talks must be held in the Philippines, the CPP-NPA must stop revolutionary taxation, and the NPA be put in encampments.

These demands of Duterte are of course rejected by the NDFP. These in effect call for the surrender of the revolutionary movement. Already in The Hague Joint Declaration of 1992, surrender or capitulation is excluded. This agreement declares that no precondition shall be made to negate the inherent character and purpose of the peace negotiations.

Major Peace Achievements
Other major achievements followed The Hague Joint Declaration. The Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees (1995) provides safety and immunity to all participants in the peace talks.

Then, the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHRIHL,1998) was signed.

and the Joint Secretariat (JS) of the Joint Monitoring Committee (JMC) under CARHRIHL was formed in 2004. The JS holds office in Metro Manila, with staff members nominated by both Parties. The JS assists the JMC which monitors the implementation of CARHRIHL.

In accord with The Hague Joint Declaration, work on social and economic reforms, political and constitutional reforms, proceeded. Both Parties would aim to attain the End of Hostilities and Disposition of Forces which would work for a General Amnesty for all combatants of both Parties.

High Hopes for Success of Peace Talks Under Duterte
After Duterte won the elections in May 2016, the hopes for the success of peace talks were very high, perhaps higher than ever before. He promised to amnesty all political prisoners on May 16, 2016. In August 2016, he released 21 NDFP Consultants to join the peace talks. Also in August 2016, the GRP and the NDFP reaffirmed all past peace agreements.

At the end of the August talks, the longest simultaneous unilateral ceasefires were held for five months from August 2016 until January 2017.

In January 2017, the third round of formal talks resulted in an agreement to distribute land free to the farmers, a landmark advance in land reform.

Ceasefire Violations by the AFP and EJKs in Duterte’s Drug War
During this period, however, extrajudicial killings started to multiply in Duterte’s so-called war on drugs.

The CPP issued a strong statement in August 2016 condemning the anti-people and anti-national policies of the Duterte government.

The CPP denounced the ceaasefire violations of the AFP and PNP in more than 500 barangays in 43 provinces, declaring that these were rendering the ceasefire untenable.

Hence, on February 1, 2017, the CPP announced that it would terminate its unilateral ceasefire in ten days.

Duterte went wild in cancelling the talks. He ordered his troops “to flatten the hills”and Defense Secretary Lorenzana declared “All Out War” against the CPP-NPA.

Back Channel Talks and Pattern of Cancellations by Duterte
NDFP Chief Political Consultant, Prof. Jose Maria Sison enjoined President Duterte to engage in back-channel talks. These took place in Utrecht on March 11-12 and both Parties agreed to a ceasefire on March 31 and hold formal talks on April 2-5 in Oslo.

The CPP was ready with its ceasefire declaration, but Duterte refused to issue the GRP ceasefire, claiming that the NPA had launched a military operation.

The scheduled formal talks got postponed and then proceeded but could not make any advance.

Volatility of Duterte in Peace Talks and Horrendous Human Rights Violations
This pattern of on again, off-again has continued until Duterte’s cancellation of the talks last June 15. His volatility in the peace talks was accompanied by horrendous human rights violations amounting to mass murder of tens of thousands of victims of his drug war.

Numerous killings of Lumad and other indigenous and mass organizations suspected as supporters of the NPA were perpetrated by the regime.

Hundreds of attacks against Lumad schools and forced evacuation of Lumad communities ensued as the military encamped in their barrio halls, health centers, schools and even residences.

The economy deteriorated with laws favoring the rich and causing big losses to the poor who are subjected to skyrocketing prices of basic commodities.

Workers are still plagued with contractualization despite his promise of eradicating it. Striking workers and their supporters are subject to military attacks as in Nutriasia.

Massacres of civilians and non-combatants continue to be perpetrated by the military and police as in the case of the Anique Seven on August 15, 2018 and the Patikul Seven a few days ago. The killings of priests has aroused condemnation from Church leaders and the public.

Solidarity persons like Sr. Patricia Fox and Lawyer Gil Boehringer of Australia are subjected to deportation and other violations of their rights.

People’s Response to Grievous Crimes of President Duterte and His Government
The grievous crimes of President Duterte and his government against the people, including his sabotage and destruction of the peace negotiations, are compelling proof that he must be held accountable.

The people have every reason to reject him and his regime and struggle to build the strongest and broadest united front to overthrow him, in order to build a Philippines that is free, democratic, independent and sovereign. #

On September 21 protests

Information Bureau | Communist Party of the Philippines
September 20, 2018

/Photo: AFP

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and all revolutionary forces extend full support to the mass demonstrations slated for tomorrow, September 21.

According to its organizers, the mass actions will commemorate the anniversary of the declaration of martial law in 1972. They aim to express the demand for an end to martial law in Mindanao and protest the Duterte regime’s widespread violations of human rights, police killings and rampant military abuses.
The protests will also serve to express the people’s protests over incessant price and other basic commodities and express the demand for wage increases, land rights, state subsidies and other demands amid the worsening economic situation.

The CPP denounces the officials of the Philippine National Police (PNP) for insisting on the lie that tomorrow’s mass actions are being organized by the CPP, NPA and NDF in an apparent bid to justify plans to clamp down on the scheduled protests.

Based on news reports, this early, protesters from the provinces are already being prevented by police and military forces to proceed to the demonstration areas. Preventing people from mounting mass actions are a direct assault on their human rights.

The CPP calls on the people to be vigilant over insidious plans possibly being plotted by the Duterte and his security officials. Indeed, Duterte is becoming increasingly desperate to cling to power as his regime is rocked by an intensifying economic and political crisis and growing clamor for his ouster.

Hinggil sa hatol na maysala ang berdugong si Palparan

PAHAYAG | Setyembre 18, 2018

Ikinalugod ng rebolusyunaryong mamamayan ng Quezon ang hatol na ibinigay ng Bulacan Regional Trial Court sa kriminal at berdugong si Jovito Palparan, kahapon, September 17, 2018.

Kahima’t hindi nito matutumbasan ang rebolusyunaryong hustisya, nagpaluwag kahit papaano sa kalooban ng mga pamilya ng biktima ni Palparan ang hatol na siya ay maysala sa pagdukot at pagkawala nina Sherlyn Cadapan at Karen Empeño.

Si Palparan ay may utang na dugo rin sa pagkakapaslang kina Kasamang Eden Marcellana at Edi Gumanoy noong Abril 21, 2003 sa Oriental Mindoro. Si Ka Eden ay nagmula sa Barangay Malaya sa bayan ng General Luna at si Ka Edi ay naninirahan sa bayan ng Nakar nang maging aktibong kasapi ng kilusang magbubukid sa rehiyon.

Si Palparan din ang sangkot sa brutal na pamamaslang sa mag-asawang Expedito Albarillo. Ang panganay na anak nilang si Ka Arman Albarillo ay nag-NPA sa paghahanap ng katarungan para sa kanyang mga magulang. Naging martir ng larangan ng SQBP si Ka Arman nang magbuwis siya ng buhay noong June 30, 2012 sa isang labanan sa pagitan ng 74th IBPA at ng yunit ng NPA na kanyang pinamumunuan sa bayan ng San Narciso.

Kailangang patuloy na bantayan ng mamamayan ang pinakahuling pangyayaring ito, tiyakin na makakalaboso si Palparan na walang anumang tratong VIP, at hindi maganap ang maruming maniobra ng kanyang mga kasabwat para muling malibre ang berdugo sa kanyang mga pananagutan.

Kailangan pa ring patuloy na litisin si Palparan sa napakahabang listahan ng kanyang krimen sa mga mamamayan ng Southern Tagalog, Central Luzon at Kabisayaan.

Hindi rin dapat kumampante ang mamamayan. Ang hatol na maysala si Palparan ay hindi nangangahulugang may umiiral na hustisya sa bansa, lalong hindi dapat na ipagpasalamat at ibigay na tropeyo sa pasistang rehimen ni Digong Duterte.

Ang nakamit na tagumpay ng mamamayan sa reaksyunaryong korte ay dili’t resulta ng masikhay na pakikibaka nila sa pangunguna ng mga pamilya ng biktima ni Palparan.

Magmumukhang patakbuhing asong kalye si Palparan kapag ikinumpara sa bangis na ipinakita ng bang-aw na si Duterte sa nakaraang dalawang taon ng kanyang panunungkulan.

Anu’t-anuman, laging may takdang panahon para sa pagpapataw ng rebolusyunaryong hustisya sa mga may malulubhang krimen sa mamamayan.#

Duterte is delusional by claiming that he shall have destroyed the CPP-NPA and the entire revolutionary movement of the people by the middle of next year.

He is taking too much of Fentanyl. Thus, he is pipe dreaming. He forgets that the campaigns of mass murder, mass intimidation, fake surrenders and fake encounters under Oplan Kapayapaan are angering the people and inciting them to íntensify their resistance.

Every one knows that the Duterte government is bankrupt and weakened by bureaucratic and military corruption, excessive military and police spending, counterproductive projects, mounting debt burden and budgetary and trade deficits. The government has imposed regressive taxes on the consuming public and caused the prices of basic goods and services to soar to unaffordable levels.

The people consider Duterte a clown who imagines that he has all the money to give jobs and houses to the millions of people who participate in the revolutionary movement. More importantly, he is now the target of people´s rising hatred. They reject the traitorous, tyrannical, murderous and corrupt character of his regime.

It is more likely that Duterte would be ousted from power than that he could destroy the people´s revolutionary movement by the middle of next year.

Bomb threats sent through text messages yesterday claimed that a bomb was planted by the New People’s Army (NPA) in Mapua University yesterday. A similar threat was received today in the Univerity of Sto. Tomas. The threats disrupted classes and work in the campuses.

The NPA vehemently denies issuing such cowardly threats. The NPA furthermore clarifies that it does not engage in such acts which in any way threaten to harm civilians.

On the conviction of General Palparan

Communist Party of the Philippines
September 17, 2018

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and all revolutionary forces join the Filipino people in celebrating the conviction earlier today of Gen. Jovito Palparan by the Malolos Regional Trial Court for kidnapping and serious illegal detention over the enforced disappearance of UP activists Sherlyn Cadapan and Karen Empeño in 2006.

Palparan was convicted together with co-accused Lt. Col. Felipe Anotado and Staff Sgt. Edgardo Osorio. The court penalized them with reclusion perpetua.

Palparan’s conviction is cause for celebration for the families of the victims, human rights defenders and mass organizations. It is a victory attained through relentless campaign for justice and retribution for all the fascist crimes perpetrated during the course of the Gen. Palparan’s reign of terror especially under Gloria Arroyo’s Oplan Bantay Laya 1 and 2.

It further strengthens the determination of thousands of victims of Gen. Palaparan to demand further justice for all the murder, torture, abduction, rape, etc. directed and perpetrated by the most rabid implementor of Oplan Bantay Laya.

Palparan’s conviction amplifies the Filipino people’s demand for Arroyo and all her fascist cohorts to be indicted, imprisoned, prosecuted and punished for the numerous crimes and rampant violation of human rights committed during their campaign of vicious suppression of democratic rights.

With the conviction of Palparan, the Filipino people are further emboldened to demand an end to the reign of terror and mass murder of the fascist Duterte regime. Duterte’s Oplan Kapayapaan and martial law in Mindanao and grave violations of human rights clearly draw from Palparan’s legacy of impunity and terror. Extrajudicial killings, population control and other violations of democratic rights and crimes against humanity are widespread.

Palparan’s ilk, including zealots of the US-doctrine of counter-insurgency now occupy the top echelons of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). The Filipino people demand their accountability and punishment for the crimes perpetrated under the Duterte regime.

The Filipino people and their revolutionary forces will continue to resolutely resist Duterte’s campaigns of suppression, Oplan Kapayapaan and Mindanao martial law.

House Resolution 1803 na Nagtutulak kay President Duterte na Ipatuloy ang Peace Negotiation sa NDFP, Muling Sinabotahe ng AFP

Spokesperson, Leonardo Panaligan Command

Press release | September 17, 2018

Lubos inaanyayahan ng NDFP Negotiating panel sa pamamagitan ni Chairman Fidel Agcaoili ang House Resolution 1803, sa kaniyang opisyal na pahayag noong September 13, 2018. Ayon sa NDFP “isa itong positibong hakbang sa pagpapanawagan sa iba’t-ibang sektor at grupo para mabigyan daan ang peace negotiation sa pagitan ng NDFP at GRP sa pamamagitan ng ipinasang resolution ng House Special Committee on Peace, Reconciliation and Unity noong nagdaang September 12, 2018. Dagdag pa ni Agcaoili, ito’y isa ring mapag-anyayang hakbang ng House Special Committee sa paghikayat kay Pres. Duterte sa mulig pagbalik sa negotiating table and work towards a just and lasting peace.”

Ang LPC-NPA mahigpit din na nagaanyaya sa ganitong Congress Resolution 1803 para sa agarang maugat ang kadahilanan ng nagpapatuloy na gyera sibil at mapairal ang tunay, makatarungan at matagalang kapayapaan sa bansa.

Nakakalusno dahil sa kabila ng positibong pananaw ng rebolusyonaryong kilusan ng CPP/NPA/NDF patuloy din ang pananabotahe ng mga “peace spoilers” na AFP sa isla at iban pa’ng utak pulbura sa reaksyunaryong estado ng rehimeng US-Duterte.

Una, kasabay sa pagpasa nitong house resolution 1803 noong September 12, 2018, agad din ang malalaki at garbusong operasyon militar ang inilunsad ng 303rd Bde PA sa mga bukirin ng Guihulngan partikular na sa mga baryo ng Trinidad, Tacpao, Binubuhan, Sandayao at Imelda na nagsimula din noong September 12, 2018 hanggang ngayongo September 17, 2018. Patuloy ang AFP na lumalabag sa CARHRIHL at talamak na human rights violations.

Nagpapalipad ng mga unmanned drones sa pagmonitor ng kilos ng mga residente at paghahanap ng NPA. Paghihimpil, panghihimasok, paghahalughog ng mga kagamitan sa kabahayan ng mga magsasaka at pagnanakaw ng mga kagamitan at pera ng mga residente sa nasabing lugar.

Katulad ng pananakot, pamimilit na maging giya sa operasyon militar para ituro ang mga masa ng NPA at pambubgbog kay Isoy Villahermosa, 40 anyos ng sityo Uway-uway, Brgy. Quinten Remo. Gayundin, pag-akyat at paghalukay ng tahanan at pagkuha ng ultimong P600.00 ng maralitang magsasaka na si Eki Gempayan, mahigit 30 anyos ang edad ng sityo Santos-santos, Quinten Remo, Moises Padilla, Negros Occidental.

Kung maaalala, September 13, 2018, mga alas 8:00 ng gabi kapareho rin ito ang pagharurot ng mga pinapaniwalaang mga “military fighter planes” na nag-iikot sa mga bukirin ng Magallon, Guihulngan, Canlaon, Vallehermoso. Toboso, Escalante at iba pa’ng mga lugar sa isla ng Negros.

Maaga pang ini-ulat na ng NPA na may ilulunsad na US-Pinas Joint Military Exercise sa isla ng Negros. Parang wiper din ang leeg ni Col. Alberto Desoyo at Civil Military Officer Capt. Roel Llanes ng 303rd Bde PA sa pagsisinungaling.

Nakakahiya at nakakatawa ang pagkukubli nito sa mga Negrosanon. Dahil hindi maitago ang pag-iikot ng mga eroplano, andoon na ang pagkumpirma ng Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines na totoong may US-Pinas Joint Military Exercise sa isla ng Negros na nagsimula noog September 5 hanggang September 26, 2018. Habang sina Col. Desoyo at Capt. Llanes patuloy na naninidigan nang kanilang mga kasinungalingan at panlilinlang kahit natumbog na ng buong Negrosanon.

Mulat din na pananabotahe ng AFP sa Peacetalk ang pagpapalabas ng “obsolete and one-sided news” sa Facebook ng “Gulf Today” titled: Red Rebels Kill Nine in Visayas Ambush written by Manolo Jara gamit ang mga datus at picture ng “Puso Incident”. Ang ganitong balita hindi na bago kundi noong Enero 2013 pa.

Ang mga kasinungalingan at pananabotahe sa Peacetalk ng “Spoilers” na mga kasapi ng AFP laluna ng 303rd Bde PA sa pangunguna ni Col. Desoyo at Capt. Llanes mahigpit na kinokondena ng NPA.

Inaatasan ang lahat na yunit ng Bagong Hukbong Bayan sa ilalim ng Leonardo Panaligan Command na maglunsad ng malawakan at matagumpay na mga taktikal na opensiba laban sa pasista at nanabotaheng AFP, PNP at iba pang kontra-rebolusyon.

Depensahan din ang buhay at kabuhayan ng mamamayan lalo na ng uring magsasaka at uring anakpawis laban sa mga pangangatake ng dayuhang mga kapitalista at tuta nitong mga tropa militar.
