Mightily resist Duterte’s laws and rules on state terrorism

The implementing rules and regulations issued by Duterte’s Anti-Terror Council details how the so-called Anti-Terror Law will be used to stifle dissent and suppress civil and political rights. It attempts to give the law a facade of “respect for human rights” but its fascist fangs are revealed in the details. Section 4.4 is particularly deceptive which lists advocacy, protest and other similar exercises of civil and political rights as “not considered terrorism” BUT ONLY IF these do not serve “terrorist” […]

Gen. Gapay is a fascist bigot and Islamophobe

The Communist Party of the Philippines stands in solidarity with the Moro people in denouncing Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) chief Gen. Gilbert Gapay’s allegation that madrasas are being used “to recruit suicide bombers.” Gapay displays fascist bigotry and anti-Muslim chauvinism for baselessly associating Islamic schools with “radicalization” and “terrorism.” This stunning accusation reveals the AFP’s deep-seated religious prejudice against Muslims and the Moro people. The AFP’s plan to investigate Moro students is utterly discriminatory and incites religious intolerance, […]

Oppose economic dictatorial powers for Duterte

The Party denounces the railroading of House Bill 7884 that grants Duterte economic dictatorial powers under the guise of cutting red tape.

AFP squanders P1.2 million daily in Mindanao combat ops amid severe learning modules shortage
October 02, 2020

NPA reports show an estimated total of P418 million was spent on combat operations since May in three Mindanao regions alone. These funds could have […]

Cracks in the Duterte fascist coalition

The political intramurals being played at the House of Representatives over the speakership issue is a manifestation of cracks within the Duterte ruling fascist coalition.

On September 30, 184 of 300 members of the House of Representative voted to reject the show of an offer of Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano to […]
