“Millennial students studying at Jesuit-run schools” was also identified along with Movement Against Tyranny, Tindig Pilipinas and Makabayan bloc, and other militant groups linked to the alleged plot to oust President Duterte.


Although the communist rebel’s plans to overthrow the Duterte government in a scheme dubbed as ‘Red October’ has fizzled out, Defense officials said the ‘reds’, among others are still plotting destabilization moves for December.

Military Spokesperson Brig. General Edgardo Arevalo said authorities managed to spoil the plan by simply baring it before the media in order to discourage legitimate opposition from joining and conniving altogether.

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP), however, pushes forward its destabilization moves to mark its founding anniversary in December.

In a statement in DZMM, Arevalo said, "Ang tinatawag po natin d'yan ay rolling plan. Gusto nilang bigyan ng grandiyosong pagdiriwang ang kanilang ika-50 anibersaryo ngayong Disyembre."

"Sumablay man po ang kanilang tinatawag na Red October plan, hindi po ibig sabihin nito ay puwede na tayong mag-relax, put our guard down," Arevalo implied.

The General also said that Authorities are now attempting to reach out to universities to ensure that they are not being exploited by the rebels as recruitment grounds for the young.

The CPP earlier denied the Red Ouster plot, which was similar to a Maoist rebellion in 1972, which former  President Ferdinand Marcos eventually used as justification for declaring Martial Law.
