“Amidst the din and reverie of the past holidays and some mercurial election inanities, we were glad to learn that the trial court correctly denied Gen. Palparan’s delusional bid to be granted bail.”
“The regime’s monstrosity, which spares not even children, speaks of the evil tactics of the counterinsurgency program of Aquino, Oplan Bayanihan.”
“President Aquino presented himself as a leader, but has done nothing, but follow the whims of an imperialist power.”

“People are being killed, tortured, arrested and detained. To the regime, the Filipino people’s resistance is a stumbling block to its brand of peace and development, and they must be punished.”
“Activities undertaken by security forces as well as armed groups within and around IP communities in Mindanao have resulted in legitimate expressions of fear and insecurity, in displacement, and is endangering the security and safety of non-combatants, including women, children and older persons.”

And this has perpetuated, nay worsened, impunity as the Aquino administration has itself committed human rights violations in the course of its own counter-insurgency program Oplan Bayanihan and in pushing the neoliberal agenda in the service of corporate interests.
