Reds warn of intensified attacks against Duterte

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) warned there will be more tactical offensives to be waged by its armed wing to counter what they described as “tyrannical rule” of President Rodrigo Duterte.

“In the face of Duterte’s tyrannical rule and triple war, the people clamor for the NPA (New People’s Army) to mount more and more tactical offensives,” the CPP said in a statement released on Sunday.

The CPP statement came after the President reiterated his call for the NPAs to declare a ceasefire first before the peace talks can resume. The communist movement said the government only wanted the revolutionaries to surrender without achieving any social and economic reforms.

The formal peace negotiations have not been resumed since the government panel refused to participate in the fifth round of talks last May in the Netherlands citing “lack of conducive environment” for the talks to proceed.

Duterte wanted a ceasefire document signed, but the communists argue that the real output of the peace negotiations is the signing and implementation of the agreements on social and economic reforms and political and constitutional reforms.

The CPP said they remain open to peace negotiations. But they said the peace talks with the government “cannot be fruitful while Duterte remains obsessed with Oplan Kapayapaan and demanding NPA capitulation.”

Meanwhile, Duterte on Saturday, September 9, said he will not hesitate in imposing Martial Law throughout the country to quell rebellion.

“I will not hesitate to impose martial law all throughout the country and order the arrest of everybody. Hindi ako nananakot. Pero gagamitin ko talaga ang Armed Forces pati pulis,” Duterte said. (davaotoday.com)
