The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) revealed their biggest fear, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte. This fear most probably roots at the President’s mission of eradicating the communism of the Philippines that Joma Sison and Benigno Simeon “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. started.

The CPP actually declared that Duterte is bound to fail completing his term since his plans and actions is leading to the President’s “rapid and extreme isolation from the people.”

They blame the President’s implementation of the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN law) that caused a rise in the prices of goods, thus making an enemy out of democratic sectors.

“[H]e has become isolated domestically and internationally. Thus, there is high probability that Duterte will not be able to complete his six-year term of office and will be forced out of Malacañang by way of a surge in anti-fascist protest actions or some other means,” the communists stated.

They also pointed out that Duterte’s street cleansing and disciplinary projects like his “Oplan Tokhang” and anti-tambay implementations, are “relentless, fascist attacks”

“Everyday, the clamor for his ouster grows loud and reverberates across the country. In his drive to accelerate his bureaucrat capitalist plunder and establish his autocratic rule, his regime has exercised hostile moves that subjected the Filipino people to deepening crisis and oppression,” the CPP continued.

On another statement, the CPP declared that the counter insurgency program, “Oplan Kapayapaan”, is but another failure.

CPP highlights that the President has crossed the line with the masses since his programs has brought bloodshed and unprecedented arrests. Thus disrupting the locals of every barrio with military operations that were directed at so-called “peace and development.”

“The Filipino people clamor for an end to the military occupation of rural communities and total war policy of targeting civilians. The local and international community demand respect for human rights and international humanitarian law which the AFP and PNP are trampling on with impunity under Duterte’s orders,” the CPP stated.

The leaders of the Communists, on the other hand, stated that they will frustrate the operation for peace, “Oplan Tokhang.”

It is a known fact that peace negotiations between CPP founder Joma Sison and Duterte failed after the President rescheduled their meeting and Sison went to a tantrum because of it. Implications being that this rescheduling was disrespectful and deserves the full militant force of his “army” in return. Duterte however is confident that this war is no treat to him, and even if it is, he has no problems with it.
