"Digong is ignorant of the law. RA 1700 or the Anti-Subversion Law was already REPEALED by Congress in 1992, hence any membership in any subversive organization or association like the Communist Party of the Phil ( CPP) is no longer punishable.
With the passage of the PARTY LIST LAW in accordance with the 1987 Constitution, all progressive group like BAYAN MUNA, MAKABAYAN , GABRIELA, ANAKPAWIS , etc joined and registered with the COMELEC and participated during the National Elections and are now in CONGRESS as Party List Representatives."

(1) HABANG ang mentality ng AFP at ni Duterte ay dugo, baril at punglo, at hindi AMICABLE PEACE NEGOTIATION, walang katapusan ang communist rebellion sa Pilipinas.
(2) HANGGANG may
* social injustice,
* elitist democracy,
* feudal landlordism and warlordism,
* government corruption,
* bureaucratic capitalism,
* extreme poverty, homelessness and joblessness,
* weak and corrupt institutions,
* political oppression vs democratic dissent,
* gross human rights violations,
* absence of rule of law,
* disrespect for the Constitution,
the frustrations of the poor and hopeless citizens and victims of social injustice will compel them to look for ALTERNATIVE MODES OF STRUGGLE FOR REFORMS, including protracted Marxist or Islamic revolution.
The entire social, political and economic system that governs our lives as a nation NEEDS FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE AND CULTURAL PARADIGM SHIFT.
AFP's insincere press releases of sympathy are useless. ITS CORRUPT AND TYRANNICAL GENERALS, like the rest of the government bureaucrats, technocrats and functionaries, HAVE SOLD THEIR SOULS AND PRINCIPLES to the populist authoritarian DUTERTE and his clique. The sovereign Filipino people CONDEMN these UNPATRIOTIC COWARDS.
