CPP to Duterte’s war cry: Too drunk with power

LEGAZPI CITY, 8 July 2018 — Reacting to the tongue-lashing President Duterte’s “let’s go to war”rhetoric, the underground Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) dished out a strongly worded statement lashing out: “Your schemes of a dictatorship will fail. You wish to end the people’s armed resistance. You will definitely fail. Like your idol Marcos, you will end up right on top of the trash heap of history.”

The CPP on Sunday addressed its statement personally to Duterte: “You declaim, “Let us go to war!” like a drug-crazed war freak. As if you gave peace a chance. Over the past two years, despite your peace prattle, not once did you silence the guns of war.”

Over the past months, Duterte has been brandishing the sword of war on the New People’s Army-CPP, after failing to win his “war on drugs Tokhang”.

You have never ordered your soldiers to relent in their offensives. Peaceful rural barangays are no more with battalions of soldiers occupying their villages. People are gravely suffering under your total war, spuriously named “Oplan Kapayapaan.” You ignore their pleas. You drown their cries by raining bombs over their homes and fields. You drive them away from their lands which you and your minions covet.

On the other hand, Duterte’s all-out war has forced young government soldiers and policemen too early into the meat-grinder, either too early death or crippled for life. And, grieving young widows.

CPP continued: “You have repeatedly tripped the peace talks just as these were making headway. You come up with one unacceptable condition after another.”

Now you repeat ad nauseam the lie that the NDFP wants to share power with you. (They do not.) Or that the GRP has been at the losing end of all past agreements. You plan to throw 25 years of hard work down the drain, the CPP lamented.

CPP accuses Duterte of too drunk with power: “Clearly you do not want peace. At least, not one that fixes the people’s problems which rouse them to rise up in arms–landlessness, unemployment, very low wages, rising prices, burdensome taxes, corruption and bureaucrats like you making money. What you want is for the revolutionary forces to surrender and bow before you. Indeed you are drunk with power.”

You think you can get away with your crimes and abuses. The Filipino people will not allow it. Your dream of silencing the people will fail, CPP vowed. [BicolToday.com]
