U.S. tags NPA as a terrorist group anew. Duterte suspends GRP-NDFP peace talks, declares CPP-NPA-NDFP as a terrorist group, and orders military to spend every bullet against rebels.
Indeed, GRP President Duterte is after the capitulation of the people’s revolutionary movement, not the necessary socio-economic and political reforms that will address the root causes of the decades-long civil war in PH.
Compelling reason to continue peace talks? Is public clamor for just and lasting peace that is based on economic, social justice not enough?
