An official of the Armed Forces of the Philippines has revealed the universities and colleges in Metro Manila where the New People’s Army are allegedly recruiting members from.
AFP Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations Bgen. Antonio Parlade named the schools as:
1. UP Diliman 2. UP Manila 3. PUP Sta. Mesa 4. Ateneo 5. Dela Salle University 6. UST 7. FEU 8. UE Recto 9. UE Caloocan 10. Adamson University 11. Emilio Aguinaldo College 12. Eulogio Amang Rodriguez Institute of Science and Technology 13. San Beda College 14. Lyceum Of The Philippines 15. University Of Makati 16. Caloocan City College 17. University Of Manila 18. Philippine Normal University
Parlade said the school officials are possibly unaware of the activities in their respective institutions that are being used by communist groups to indoctrinate the students into joining their organization.
Parlade cited the screening of films that show the “dark years” of martial law under Marcos and projecting President Rodrigo Duterte as the new emerging dictator.
He said the films are designed to incite resentment against the government and urge students to join protest rallies.
The AFP reminds parents to keep an eye on their children to prevent them from being recruited by insurgents.
The report about a group of students conniving with the CPP-NPA to oust the president was first revealed last Tuesday during the Senate’s deliberation on the proposed budget of the Department of National Defense.
The AFP added that they also have documents on the frequent conferences of Communist Party of the Philippines founder Joma Sison with the University of the Philippines. — Asher Cadapan Jr.
The University of the Philippines (UP) has climbed to the 65th rank among the top universities in Asia.
From its previous 95th ranking, UP moved up 30 points in the newly released 2020 Times Higher Education (THE) Asia University Rankings.
The THE Asia University Rankings uses Teaching, Research, Citations, International Outlook and Industry Income as criteria to rank universities, the same criteria used in World University Rankings.
“The national university has been featured in the THE Asia University Rankings since 2017. It entered the top 100 for the first time in 2019, soaring 61 places from its 156th position in 2018. In 2017, UP belonged to the 201st-250th ranking group,” according to UP. AAC
MANILA, Philippines — Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founder Jose Maria ‘Joma’ Sison warned on Tuesday (May 12) that President Rodrigo Duterte’s offer of P2 million bounty for the capture of New People’s Army (NPA) commanders will only lead to further loss of ‘innocent civilians.’
“With this kind of offer, we can expect his armed minions to manufacture more NPA commanders so that they will receive the cash reward as they have from previous fake surrenders and fake encounters,” Sison said in a post on Facebook.
“We can expect more murders being committed by military and police officers against innocent civilians who are misrepresented as NPA commanders,” he added.
President Duterte in a briefing announced his offer to anyone who would be lead the authorities to the capture of an NPA leader or commander following another series of attacks against government troops in humanitarian missions.
“Like his previous order to shoot dead any violator of the lockdown, his order to kill NPA commanders will result in the murder of many innocent people,” Sison later added.
The communist leader also noted that the President allegedly “does not care that he will go down in history as a butcher of the Filipino people.”
Sison reiterated that President Duterte is just using the NPA to cover up his administration’s ‘gross incompetence and failure’ in the fight against coronavirus disease (COVID-19) citing the lack of mass testing and contact-tracing and the increasing number of health workers dying of the virus due to lack of personal protective gear.
“Duterte has made a rambling and inane multi-media broadcast every week during the lockdown but he has not given any rational plan for the use of 275 billion pesos. And there has been no accounting of the disbursement of these funds,” he said.
MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has offered a P2-million bounty to anyone who can provide information on the whereabouts of leaders or commanders of the New People’s Army (NPA).
Aside from this, the President promised to protect the informant and also to provide him or her with a livelihood package.
“Kung sino ang makakapagturo (To anyone who can report to us [their location]),” he said.
“Tapos doon sa Army o pulis, kapag ikaw ang nagturo at nahuli ang komander na mabigat, may hati ka diyan sa pera pero aalisin kita sa lugar mo. Kung taga-Abra ka, ihatid kita sa Mindanao. Bibigyan kita ng lupa at doon ka na lang,” he added.
(Then to a member of the Army or police, if you are the one who could capture a high-profile commander, you will have a share in the bounty but I will reassign you somewhere else. If you are in Abra, I will send you to Mindanao. I will give you a land and you can stay there.)
The President’s offer comes after the recent attacks by the NPA against government forces that were providing security in the distribution of aid in provinces affected by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) crisis. — MNP (with information from Rosalie Coz)
