Today in the Philippines:
- Peace talks between the communists (CPP-NPA-NDFP) and the Duterte administration terminated
- Houses of peasant leaders in Brgy. Dan Diego, Lian, Batangas raided by joint forces of CIDG and PNP SWAT, two (2) days after the arrest of 9 farmers and fishermen in Nasugbu, Batangas
- Urban poor group Kadamay violently dispersed during their protest action at National Housing Authority (NHA)
- House justice committee barred Chief Justice Sereno’s lawyers to cross- examine witnesses
Duterte is determined to arrogate the power of removing critics in his administration and to suppress all forms of dissent and resistance. Resist the anti-people and fascist rule of US-Duterte!
