  • AQUINO IS HYPOCRITICAL ABOUT PEACE NEGOTIATIONS
    AND PLANS TO TERMINATE THESE NEXT YEAR OR EARLIER


    National Democratic Front of the Philippines
    Negotiating Panel
    Press Statement

     By Fidel V. Agcaoili
    Spokesperson of NDFP Panel Negotiating with the GPH (GRP)
    19 May 2012

     

    We in the Negotiating Panel of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) deplore recent statements made by GPH President Aquino against the NDFP and its Chief Political Consultant Prof. Jose Maria Sison. He made such recent statements in an interview with Radyo Bombo and this has been further circulated by certain newspapers.

    Aquino practically accuses the NDFP of insincerity as the obstacle to peace. He exposes himself as the hypocrite who pays lip service to peace but is in fact obsessed with carrying out a brutal war under the US-instigated Oplan Bayanihan. He is not at all interested in serious peace negotiations but only in demanding the surrender and pacification of the revolutionary forces and people. Read more
