– fisherfolk group
Manila, Philippines – The militant fisherfolk group Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (PAMALAKAYA-Pilipinas) on Wednesday assailed President Rodrigo Duterte’s all-out-war declaration against the Communist Party of the Philippines and its armed-wing New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) for according to them, this is equivalent to a total war against unarmed activists and rights advocates fighting for the welfare and basic rights of the marginalized people.
President Duterte’s declaration of an all out war was part of his series of tantrums after he lifted its own unilateral ceasefire declaration against the revolutionary rebels followed by complete termination of the ongoing peace negotiations between the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) and the communist National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP).
In a statement, PAMALAKAYA lambasted the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief of Staff Eduardo Año and the Department of National Defense (DND) Secretary Delfin Lorenzana for working hand in glove to derail the peace talks. The two high-ranking AFP Generals are the partners in crime behind the cessation of the peace negotiation that could have been achieve prosperous developments that are deemed helpful to the Filipino people in the process.
