Why oppose anti-terror bill if it will boost your ranks, CPP-NPA told

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CCP) information officer Marco Valbuena is making the rounds claiming that the House Bill 6875 or the proposed Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020 would cause an upsurge in people joining their armed ranks just like what happened during the years of martial law.
That is why Southern Luzon Command chief, Lt. Gen. Antonio Parlade, Jr. has told the communists to enjoy and rejoice for the eventual passage of the proposed Anti-Terrorism Act because they will benefit from it.

"Valbuena and the CPP said that the Anti-Terror Law will further push people to join the NPA. If that is the case, then they should be happy with it. He should not oppose it so they will have more fighter recruits," Parlade said.

Parlade’s comments comes after Valbuena’s assertion that the Duterte’s regime’s "intense persecution, suppression, and threats" have continued to attract " toiling masses and intellectuals" in joining the NPA.
Southern Luzon Command chiefa member of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF ELCAC), however, dismissed Valbuena's allegations by citing the numerous reports of surrender by former communist rebels who in their own volition have returned to the fold of the government due to hardships and lack of support from the CCP and its failed ideology.

"That's not what the NPAs in Mindoro said. You have recruited mercenaries by exploiting Mangyans with a promise of 'SUPAMIL' (Suporta sa Pamilya) worth PHP1,500 a month. Well, they got PHP1,500 upon signing up and their families never got anything else after for six years, not even medical assistance when their wives got sick and eventually died. It's the same story from surrenders in Panay, Cordillera, Surigao, Samar, and elsewhere. So your fighters stay with the NPAs for a year or even less, and then surrender after realizing their condition in the movement is even worse," he added.

Parlade slams the communists hierarchy branding Congress as "fascist diehards" for the crafting of the law that will curb terrorism and yet clamps up and ignores the facts when presented with evidence showing the communist rebels’ plan to establish a proletarian dictatorship.

"You refuse to comment every time we expose to the people what your CPP Constitution Plans and Programs (May 2017) adhere to -- a proletarian dictatorship, which we are sure is of the worst kind," he added.
Parlade point blank asked Valbuena and CPP if they are really a movement promoting democratic rights and pro-people with the burning of a church and several houses in Misamis Oriental on May 28.
"Tell us Valbuena, exactly what democratic rights and pro-people's interest are you trying to promote with your communist and godless ideology? Is that something like the burning of a Born Again church and several houses because the people there are anti-communist? Did you at least coordinate with your comrade (Bayan Muna Party-list Rep. Carlos Isagani) Zarate on how to disassociate yourselves because clearly your ideas and methods are one and the same," he said.
