"Joma doesn't have any status in the Netherlands anymore. He has no passport and visa so why is he still being coddled there?," said Arlene Escalante, League of Parents in the Philippines (LPP) spokesperson.
CPP-NPA members, she said, should not have its 52nd anniversary.
“This communist group is nonsense. It's just a waste of battle and killing of our citizens and children (persists) for over 50 years. It should be stopped now," she said

"Many of our youths have been recruited and are being sent to the mountains," she said.

"10 years from now, I hope and I pray there will be no more CPP-NPA members celebrating another anniversary. The insurgency must be stopped now. We're not just fighting for our country, we're also fighting for our children," she said.

Joma Sison who has been in self-exile in the Netherlands since 1987, he was set free by then President Cory Aquino after President Ferdinand Marcos was ousted from power in 1986.
