NTF ELCAC STATEMENT
There is no such thing as ‘redtagging’. No less than the Supreme Court has ruled that there is no danger to life, liberty and security when one is identified as a member of the CPP NPA NDF.
The term redtagging is a tool used by the CPP NPA NDF fronts to silence those who are about to blow their cover.
The time for silencing us is long past. It is now time for the CPP NPA NDF to shut up.
The NTF ELCAC stands firm in its duty of speaking the Truth to the Filipino people about the CPP NPA NDF and its numerous fronts whose main goal is to deceive them into joining these fronts and once in, lead them down the road to extremism with one goal and one goal alone: the violent overthrow of government and the installation of communism in the Philippines.
Countless lives have been sacrificed in the altar of the terrorist Joma Sison—our children, our indigenous peoples, the most vulnerable among us.
The NTF ELCAC is successfully putting a stop to this tragic bloodbath.
Already it has effected the surrender of almost 24,000 rebels who have peacefully laid down their arms—24,000 Filipinos no longer killing fellow Filipinos, 24,000 Filipinos rejoining their families and once again leading peaceful, productive lives.
It has also effected the dismantling of an unprecedented number of whole guerrilla fronts and the institutionalizing of good governance— which is at the core of the NTF ELCAC as directed to us by our President who is the Chair of the Task Force.
We stand firm in ending this 53 year communist terrorist scourge and this also includes speaking the truth about politicians who form unholy alliances with the CPP NPA NDF and who lend them material support for their political ambitions at the expense of our country.
We will be unstinting with the Truth and we will name them and not be party to their cover up.
We will not be party to anything that prolongs the life of this communist terrorist group that has brought untold grief and destruction to our country—on no small measure brought on by the alliances made by traitors in our midst who pretend to be public servants while selling us and our children to these terrorists in exchange for whatever votes they can get from rotten deals they make.
Peace is no longer a distant dream in the Philippines.
In the countryside where numerous barangays have been cleared of the toxic presence of these terrorists, our countrymen are finally breathing the air of free men and women for the first time in decades.
Peace has become a reality and it has made a landfall in communities all over the country that have known nothing but the abuse and exploitation of the CPP NPA NDF.
This obvious propaganda at the doorstep of the Ombudsman of the CPP NPA NDF fronts like KABATAAN, ANAKPAWIS, BAYAN MUNA, ALLIANCE OF CONCERNED TEACHERS (ACT), GABRIELA—collectively and aptly named KABAG— doesn’t even register with us.
The Filipino people stand united with us in this fight for country and together we will put an end to the terrorist CPP NPA NDF.
