NTF-ELCAC’s surrender campaign is a shameless sham: Various government offices colluding to violate people’s rights

Aside from sheer lack of concern, Valdez and his subordinates’ only motivation could be a possible cut from the Php16.44 billion of the so-called Barangay Development Program.

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) denounces and rejects the “designation” by the “Anti-Terrorist Council” (ATC) of 19 supposed “leaders” of the CPP as “terrorists.” This is clearly an act in accordance with the diktat of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) and Duterte himself. The ATC claimed that those in the list are leaders of the CPP but cites no evidence to back their claims. The ATC merely recycled a very old list […]

Appointment of NTF-ELCAC spokespersons polarizes PH society

Not only did the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) rebuke public clamor to remove Gen. Antonio Parlade and Lorraine Badoy as its spokespersons, it even appointed six other people to serve as mouthpieces. Not satisfied, the NTF-ELCAC announced it will appoint more. By appointing more and more spokespersons to push the bellicose viewpoint of the NTF-ELCAC, Gen. Hermogenes Esperon is actually causing the further polarization of the country. Led by General Parlade, the NTF-ELCAC’s spokespersons are publicly […]

With elections nearing, NTF-ELCAC is hungry for funds

With the 2022 elections just a year away, Duterte’s favorite generals in the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) are determined to keep the anomalous funds of the Barangay Development Program in their aim to impose the military’s political influence in several hundred barangays. Officers of the NTF-ELCAC are making up all sort of justifications to keep the BDP funds despite questions over corruption in the disbursement of their ₱16.4 billion lump-sum fund. It is also […]

Fight and make Duterte pay for national treachery

As time passes, Philippine freedom and rights over its seas and marine resources are diminished due to Duterte’s kowtowing to China and national treachery.

The people must use all forms of resistance, from diplomatic to armed, to assert the Filipino’s inherent rights. Not only did Duterte do nothing to regain our […]
