"The CPP (Communist Party of the Philippines)-NPA’s 50-year rebellion is an utter failure as it only resulted (in) loss of lives and destruction to properties. If there is anything significant to the CPP-NPA’s existence, it is the 50 years of violence, injustice, atrocities, deceit and lies. They continuously hinder peace and development in some areas of our country. The leaders, members, and supporters of the communist terrorist group should be ashamed of themselves for bringing years of hardships and misery to our people," said Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) public affairs office chief, Col. Noel Detoyato.                                                                                                                                                              Detoyato urged on Filipinos to help the government In putting an end to this decades-long violence and communist movement.

"Let us unite in encouraging our misled brothers and sisters in the CPP-NPA to end the armed struggle and embrace the path to peace," the military official said.
He emphasized that it is never to late for the rebels fighters and supporters, who has been following an ideology that has been considered dead for a long time now, they can still find their lives in the mainstream and live productively as part of the society.

"It is never too late for them to return to the fold of society and adhere to the rule of law. Our government has laid programs for rebels who wish to surrender such as the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program or E-CLIP to help them start their new lives as productive Filipinos," the AFP official said.

The New People’s Army, the armed wing of the Communist Party of the Philippines, is listed as terrorist organization by the United States of America and the European Union.
