CPP, NPA and NDF are not enemies of the State — Zarate and Casino


Who are they trying to fool?

The public assertions talks highly about their reputation and where their loyalty lies - Bayan Muna Party List Representative Carlos Zarate and former Party List Congressman Teodoro Casino maintained that they do not consider the Communist Party of the Philippines, New People’s Army and National Democratic Front (CPP/NPA/NDF) as “enemies” of the State.

In the senate committee hearing chaired by senator Panfilo Lacson, the latter asked if they are ready to denounce the atrocities of the CPP-NPA and as enemies of the State.

former Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) chief of staff General Hermogenes Esperon Jr., current national security adviser and senator Lacson, points that both of them as lawmakers are being paid by the government.

The NPA for decades is fighting the government and has been killingmembers of the AFP, PNP and their comrades who wanted to leave the communist movement, Lacson pointed out.        

The former partylist representative Casino made it clear that like members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF), he could not consider members of the CPP, NDF and NPA as enemies as they are revolutionary groups and that government must always be open to dialogues.

Zarate, for his part, said the door to dialogues would close when the Philippine government considers the communist as enemies. 

As for the current National Intelligence Coordinating Agency (NICA) Director General Alex Monteagudothe NPA is considered a terrorist organization and refusal not to condemn it could be considered as consenting to it and allowing it to continue recruiting into its ranks, usually students.            

Casino on public record said that said militant groups are not recruiting the young students of the country to join the NPA but it is natural that the NPA targets the young and students to join its group.    

With this statement, the statement of General Antonio Parlade is right in warning against those wanting to join militant groups.      

Parlade was accused of red-tagging when he called the attention of entertainment celebrities against espousing the advocacies of militant groups.
