NPA, labawng molig-on ug mas determinadong makig-away taliwala sa hugaw nga todo-gyera ni Duterte

Read in: English Daw nakahithit ang hepe sa AFP nga si Gen. Gilbert Gapay dihang gipadayag niya nga nagkaluya na kuno ang New People’s Army (NPA) “sa kadaghang rebelde nga misurender.” Tin-aw nga walay kamatuoran ang gipanulti sa heneral.

NPA to emerge stronger and more determined to fight amid Duterte’s all-out dirty war

Read in: Bisaya Gen. Gilbert Gapay, AFP chief, was apparently high on some hallucinogenic substance when he claimed yesterday that the New People’s Army (NPA) is on the decline with “so many rebels surrendering.” There is absolutely no basis in reality for the general’s claims. The AFP’s propaganda about the “weakened” state of the NPA […]

What is Duterte’s deal with Russian and Chinese vaccine-makers?

Last night, Duterte disparaged Western pharmaceutical companies saying they are driven by “profit profit profit” as he continued his push for the purchase of Russian and Chinese Covid-19 vaccines.

We call on the Filipino people and international humanitarian and human rights agencies to expose and condemn this treacherous crime.

No acceptable justification for Pemberton pardon

Roque tried to justify Duterte’s granting of presidential pardon to US marine Pemberton by claiming it means “all Filipinos will have vaccines being developed by America.” What Roque is essentially saying, Duterte threw out the demand for Pemberton to properly serve his sentence in line with the desire of Jennifer Laude’s family, gave up the […]

On Duterte’s granting of absolute pardon to Laude killer US Marine Pemberton

Duterte’s granting of absolute pardon to US Marine Joseph Scott Pemberton is an act of subservience to the US government and military, a grave injustice to Jennifer Laude and her family and, an act of national indignity and treachery to the Filipino people. Allowing Pemberton to go free without having properly served his sentence must […]

Murderer, rapist Pemberton does not deserve early release

US Marine Lance Cpl. Joseph Scott Pemberton does not deserve early release from imprisonment. He has not even properly served his sentence having been afforded the privilege of being “detained” in a “special military jail” inside Camp Aguinaldo. The Party opposes Pemberton’s bid for a reduction of his jail term through the so-called “good conduct […]
