AFP tells Filipino youth : "Don't be swayed by Reds' sweet talk"

The Communist Party of the Philippines- New peoples Army (CPP-NPA) has always been known to be recruiting the nation’s brightest student leaders to be part of their communist ideologies.
Time and time again, government forces will be shocked after an encounter they will see the dead corpses of young Filipinos who could have been an important part of the building of the nation.
The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has reminded the youth to listen to the experiences of former rebels and supporters before deciding to be part of a dying communist rebel movement in the country.

In a message to the Philippine News Agency, AFP public affairs office chief, Col. Noel Detoyato, said, "While the leaders are feeling the brunt of the law enforcement, we call on those who are still being recruited and in the process of being deceived by sweet talking CPP-NPA (Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army) to ignore their messages and listen to those who have turned their backs and returned to mainstream society."
This was his response when asked what could the AFP do to prevent the NPA in recruiting from the nation’s youth.
"Their (former NPA rebels) bad experience and nightmares with the CPP-NPA coupled with the false promises must convince them (youth) not to give in. If there will be no fresh recruits, this menace of a group called CPP-NPA-NDF (National Democratic Front) will just be relegated into irrelevance and the remaining members will just probably die of old age. Slowly but surely, with every Filipino going in one direction, our objective of ending (CPP founding chair Jose Maria 'Joma') Sison's insurgency will progress towards ending his(Sison's) 50 years of deceits and lies," he added.
It was already reported that over 11,000 NPA fighters and supporterd have surrendered since January 2018.
For the year 2019, currently 600 rebels and symphatizers have voluntarily surrendered to government authorities.
“They have realized that they have been deceived and have descended from their mountain hideouts to rejoin their families, avail of government benefits, and live normal lives,” AFP spokesperson Brig. Gen. Edgard Arevalo said.
Duterte Admin’s E-CLIP
President Rodrigo Roa Duterte institutionalized Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) on April 3, 2018 ,principally to aid the rebels and supporters who surrendered to government authorities.
It provides a complete package of assistance and interventions to former communist rebels and their immediate families to prepare them for integration to mainstream society.
These include skills development training from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, PhilHealth enrollment, housing, livelihood and legal assistance, among others.
The CPP-NPA is listed as terrorist organization by the United States and European Union
