The Party, the New People’s Army and the revolutionary movement are outside the legal jurisdiction of the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP). They are governed by the rules of the People’s Democratic Government (PDG) that the revolutionary movement is building and has established in the course of waging a revolutionary war to advance the national and democratic rights of the people.
The Party does not recognize the juridical authority of the GRP. Neither does the CPP recognize the Anti-Terror Law as a legitimate law. The constitutionality of the ATL is also being questioned before the GRP’s Supreme Court which has already received more than 30 complaints calling for its repeal.
Legal experts and luminaries, however, can take independent action to question the ATC’s designation of the CPP as “terrorist.” They can take this option as a first step to prevent the legal consequence of the CPP designation by the ATC against the people’s civil and political rights.
The ATL is an anti-democratic law which was enacted for the purpose of suppressing the broad democratic forces who oppose Duterte’s tyrannical rule and who stand against his plans to perpetuate his rule. It is merely using the veil of “anti-terrorism” to suppress and clampdown on patriotic and democratic forces and delegitimize their mass-oriented cause.
The so-called ATC is a pro-Duterte fascist anticommunist directorate. It is composed close-minded Duterte die-hards that aim to silence all criticism of their boss. It is a twin of the NTF-ELCAC whose sworn duty is to destroy the CPP and the patriotic and democratic forces.
