This is in relation to an article about stopping the practice of denouncing Communist Front Organizations (CFOs). Why would anyone do this when it is a way to uncover the deceptions and lies of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army-National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF)? Why would you stop exposing those who only want to overthrow the government and have their selfish motives addressed?
The insurgency remains a serious national security issue. But with the peace and security activities sustained in line with the efforts of the National Task Force to End the Local Communist Armed Conflict, the level of insurgency has been significantly reduced and the objectives of its program have advanced since its inception and adoption. by communities.
And one of its activities is to debunk the lies of the CPP-NPA-NDF by exposing the CFOs and how they operate and recruit their members using these organizations. By exposing who they really are, we learn what they do. For five decades, they still exist because of these misleading recruitments they make for all vulnerable sectors, especially young people.
If these efforts are not continued, we will again face a big problem. It’s as if we were already almost done winning the race but all of a sudden we stopped our cause because someone suggested to stop exposing those who would hurt and manipulate the lives of our Filipino compatriots. I hope that all efforts to put an end to the insurgency will not be wasted simply because of such a decision.
I hope that the national and local government authorities will continue their efforts to put an end to the local communist armed conflict once and for all. I also urge everyone to stop supporting lawless elements in our society. It is time to unite in our quest for freedom, peace and stability.
