Reds using party-list groups to destroy gov’t - former rebels

They are just confirming the things we already have been hearing years ago.

In the recent Senate hearing, by the the Senate Committee on Public Order and Dangerous Drugs chaired by senator Ronald Dela Rosa, two former communist rebels confirmed that leftist party-list groups, as well as other leftist organizations, are being used by the Communist Party of the Philippines-New Peoples’ Army (CPP-NPA) to destroy the government from within.

One of them was 21-year-old “Allem” who testified who testified she was recruited into the NPA when she was only a 16-year-old student of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines.She testified that at first she joined the League of Filipino Students (LFS) in 2014, later on joining  the Kabataang Makabayan (KM).

She fully joined the NPA in October 2017 and left it in April 2018.
She told the senate panel, that as a member of the LFS, among their activities would be to conduct lightning rallies in the PUP campus, wearing red masks with the KM logo and shouting: “Sagot sa kahirapan ay digmaang bayan. Kabataan, sumampa sa kabundukan, sumapi sa New People's Army (The answer to poverty is people's war. Youth, go to the mountains and join the New People's Army).”

In 2016, she was part of the group who campaigned for the Kabataang Partylist whose nominee is Sarah Elago, regained her seat at the House of Representatives.
“During the campaign period, members of the LFS and Anakbayan na member na rin ng Kabataang Makabayan, binasahan kami sa pag-aaral namin tungkol sa revolutionary dual tactics: na kinakailangan na hindi lang ang armadong pakikibaka ang kailangang palakasin namin kundi kailangan din naming pasukin ang gobyerno para pabagsakin ang gobyerno (During the campaign, members of the LFS and Anakbayan, who were also members of the KM, were tutored on revolutionary dual tactics: that we needed not only to strengthen the armed struggle but also to infiltrate the government to bring down the government)," Allem told the senators.
“Ang ibig sabihin, kinakailangan din naming makapagpanalo ng mga party-list o senador para yun po ang magiging susi namin para mapabagsak ang gobyerno (It means that we needed to have a party-list or a senator win in the elections, which will be the key to oust the government),” she said.

In this way, the former rebel said the communist movement would have a representative within the government.
“Dahil ang itinuro sa amin, kinakailangang pasukin ang gobyerno para wasakin ang gobyerno (It was what was taught to us, that we need to infiltrate the government to destroy the government). Use democracy to destroy democracy,” Allem said.
“So you want to confirm itong agam-agam ng iba na itong mga party-list na makakaliwa ay talagang merong ulterior motive na papasok sa gobyerno para sirain ang gobyerno (So you want to confirm the allegations that these leftist party-list groups really have an ulterior motive in entering the government to destroy the government)?,” dela Rosa asked the young former rebel.

“Opo! (Yes),” Allem replied.
Allem added that her allegations were all based on her personal experiences in the communist movement.
“Personal ko po itong naranasan kung paano kami ginamit hanggang gabi na nagdidikit ng poster ng Kabataanparty-list dahil iligal kaya ginagawa namin ng gabi (This is my personal experience, how we are used to put posters of Kabataan party-list at night because it's illegal that's why we post them at night) ,” Allem said.
