Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founding chairman Jose Maria Sison likened President Duterte to an “old broken record” after the latter terminated the peace negotiations anew.
“Duterte is like an old broken record repeating ad nauseam his termination of the GRP-NDFP peace negotiations,” Sison said in a statement.
The CCP founding chair said the President had “formally killed” the peace negotiations when he issued Proclamation No. 360 on November 23, 2017, adding that Duterte is “merely driving more nails into the coffin of the peace negotiations under his regime.”
“He needs the continuance of the armed conflict as the excuse to impose on the people a de facto martial law nationwide and eventually a full-blown fascist dictatorship through charter change to a bogus kind of federalism,” the CCP founder said.
Sison said Duterte wants “fake localized peace negotiations” instead of national level talks by duly-authorized panels of the GRP and the NDFP.
The CCP chair said peace negotiations can still be resurrected by a new administration.
“The Duterte regime is not eternal…In the meantime, the revolutionary forces and the people need to defend themselves actively and advance their revolutionary cause by all possible forms of resistance,” Sison said.
“In the meantime, the revolutionary forces and the people need to defend themselves actively and advance their revolutionary cause by all possible forms of resistance,” he added.
Duterte on Thursday permanently terminated the government’s peace talks with the communist terrorist group.
“I am officially announcing the permanent termination of our talks between the government and the Communist Party of the Philippines,” Duterte said.
“I’d like to announce that I am no longer entertaining any interventions or maybe persuasions in this democratic state of the Republic of the Philippines. My sense is that you can maybe talk to the next President of this Republic one day,” the President added.
