Speaker to CPP-NPA: ‘Tapusin na natin ang kaguluhan na ito’

Dec 7, 2017 @ 12:10

House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez said it’s time to end the decades-old conflict with the Communist Party of the Philippines and the New People’s Army, which were declared terrorist organizations by President Rodrigo Duterte.

Asked in a radio interview to give a message for the insurgents, Alvarez said, “Well, tapusin na lang natin itong kaguluhan na ito. Alam mo… matagal nang nagsasakripisyo yung taong bayan, lalong-lalo na yung mga nasa probinsya… hindi makaahon, hindi makaahon sa kahirapan.”

“Kahit na anong gawin ng gobyerno, kung mayroong kaguluhan, walang mangyayari sa atin. Siyempre may mga anak din sila, mas mabuti na yung makapag-aral ng maayos at mabigyan ng mabuting kinabukasan,” he said.

Alvarez said one consequence of the terrorist tag is it would allow the government to run after the rebel group’s financiers.

“Yun po yung consequence nga niyan ano. At lahat po ng susuporta ay puwede pong hulihin dahil… will be branded as supporters of terrorists,” he said.

The Speaker added, “Wala na akong makitang punto para mag-aaway-away pa. Dahil lahat naman ginagawan ng programa ng administrasyon upang sa ganoon ay makaahon ang bawat mamamayang Pilipino.”
