President Rodrigo Duterte has tagged barangays as hotbeds of communism.

During the joint meeting of the National Task Force-Regional Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) in Northern Mindanao held in Cagayan de Oro City Friday, Duterte again criticized the rebels for forcibly collecting revolutionary taxes from businessmen and ordinary people.

“All these 53 years, in the span of 53 years, all you ever did was destroy families, destroy properties of government, those investors who ventured into business in far-flung areas, you burn their equipment if they they don’t pay taxes, you even kill the people What the…? I don’t understand you,” the Chief Executive said in the vernacular.

“You want to overthrow this government? You don’t even own a single boat. How do you propose to do it? You, those of you in the barangay? Because the hotbed of the communists are the barangays. They can’t manipulate the people in the urban areas because their lives are comfortable,” he added.

In 2018, Duterte signed Executive Order No. 70 creating the NTF-ELCAC and institutionalizing a whole-of-nation approach towards obtaining sustainable peace and putting an end to more than five decades of local communist insurgency.
