Militant group, Karapatan, should blame Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founder, JOSE MARIA SISON @JOMA, instead of the government, for their red-tagging.
“To Karapatan – don’t blame (the) government for your being tagged as ‘Red’. You have always been Red by the way you respond to situations. Your name is all over the Red websites. Joma’s face turns red every time we mention the CPP revolutionary websites, the ILPS (International League of Peoples Struggles’) websites, the ILPS of which Joma is also chair,” Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Deputy Chief-of-Staff for Civil-Military operations, Major Gen. Antonio Parlade, told reporters Friday.
Parlade made the statement after Karapatan scored the government for identifying them as one of the front organizations of the CPP-New People’s Army (NPA), which is listed as a terrorist organization by the United States and the European Union (EU).
