Criminal charges against me are patently false, puerile and futile and do not bother me a bit

At the outset, I declare that the charges of terrorism and common crimes being made against me by the Duterte regime are patently false, puerile and futile and do not bother me a bit. These trumped up charges constitute gas lighting to deflect public attention from the gross and systematic crimes of treason, mass murder […]

On the Offer of Amnesty for the Purpose of Butchery

Duterte’s offer of fake amnesty to revolutionaries is a dirty trap like the campaign to have drug addicts surrender themselves for rehabilitation and then they are butchered by police death squads for cash rewards.

Duterte delivers dismal and disjointed SONA to mark the final year of his term of office

For being dismal and disjointed, the final state of the nation address (SONA) of Duterte fittingly marks the beginning of the ignominious end of his rule. It has been overshadowed by the mass protests of the Filipino people in the Philippines and abroad and likewise by the gold medal victory of the woman weight lifter […]

Long view of the revolutionary movement and shortsightedness of the Duterte regime

But first let me make an immediate riposte to his big lie that he is succeeding at destroying the revolutionary movement of the Filipino people and that by implication he ought to be rewarded with a […]
