COMMENT: The news story is excellent, except for the reference to 217 NPA surrenderees.
This news story below is excellent in reporting the strong responses of women´s organizations and other respected persons to the macho fascist encouragement of Duterte to his armed minions to shoot suspected women NPA members in the vagina.
But the new story errs in casually stating that 217 New People’s Army (NPA) surrenderees were hosted by Duterte last Wednesday night in Malacanang and even the NPA women surrenderees applauded Duterte´s incitement to his armed minions to shoot NPA women members in the vagina.
General Guerrero himself has already publicly admitted that the so-called NPA surrenderees were not all combatants and claimed that most of them were activists in the ¨political structure¨ of the revolutionary movement.
Those so-called surrenderees brought to the palace might all be fake surrenderees because their identities are concealed by the military under the pretext of protecting them.
At any rate, Duterte is a brazen and monstrous violator of human rights and international humanitarian law by inciting the military.police and paramiltary to shoot in the vagina suspected women NPA members.
