Response to the statement of Rep. Gary Alejano

Rep. Gary Alejano is a highly patriotic and intelligent person. He is worthy of respect and cooperation as a legislator and a former military officer. It is being true to his noble and honorable character to advocate and support the peace process.

His position is welcome and consonant with the continuing policy of the NDFP to be open to peace negotiations for the sake of the Filipino people. Social, economic and political reforms can be negotiated and agreed upon to address the roots of the armed conflict and lay the basis for a just and lasting peace.

Gov’t urged to resume peace talks with Reds

Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano on Sunday said the Duterte administration’s decision to forgo the possibility of forging a peace agreement with the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) was tantamount to “abandonment of duty.”

“The government must never say that they are hopeless about peace. It is an abandonment of duty to resolve social ills that led the insurgents to incite protests,” Alejano said in a statement.

Alejano, a former Marine captain, said the national government should hear the valid concerns of insurgents and deal with these without resorting to violence.

“We should not set aside peace talks because it involved the overall security of the people,” the Magdalo representative said.

Major differences

After initially accommodating the CPP and members of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, its political wing, President Rodrigo Duterte opted to pull the plug on the peace negotiations between the two groups due to major differences in pursuing the peace process.

The President, who had previously openly praised the CPP, also lambasted its armed wing, the New People’s Army (NPA), for attacks on government troops as he threatened to form his own “Duterte death squad” to kill communist rebels.

As the government remained firm on its rejection of any truce for the holidays, the Philippine National Police on Sunday said the communist rebel leadership was “out of touch with what’s happening” in declaring its own ceasefire.

No ceasefire

In a radio interview, Chief Supt. Benigno Durana Jr., PNP spokesperson, maintained that the unilateral ceasefire declared by the CPP central committee is a mere “propaganda” and is another deception by the revolutionary organization.

For his part, Col. Noel Detoyato, Armed Forces of the Philippines public affairs office chief, reiterated that the military would not declare a ceasefire for the holidays.

1 COMMENT

  1. What the Filipino people have, as of now, is not a government but a MAFIA GANGSTER, ceremoniously, headed by Duterte and Lorenzana but operated and controlled by some Military Officers and Top generals. Their number one goal is to kill and silence all opposition and people’s resistance in order to continue their corruption and plunder of the country’s treasury and other resources. More than ever, Patriots from left to right should come together to smash this GANGSTER.

Decision on the petition for proscription against the CPP-NPA as terrorist organizations filed by the DOJ on 21 Feb 2018 with the RTC branch...

The Program of the CPP which is also synonymous with “Plan of Action”, can be construed as the respondent organizations’ “purpose for being,” or the very reasons for its establishment. A perusal of the foregoing Program, consisting of lofty ideals readily shows that the CPP-NPA is organized or exists, not for the purpose engaging in terrorism.
