CPP slams “terrorist-tag” on NDFP
The Communist Party of the Philippines criticized the Anti-Terrorism Council for designating the National Democratic Front of the Philippines as a “terrorist” organization. This declaration was made public on July 19 although it was signed on June 23.
Consequently, the regime ordered the Anti-Money Laundering Council to begin freezing the accounts of individuals, organizations and institutions accused of links to the NDFP. This can possibly affect everyone who extended their support to the NDFP negotiating panel.
It is evident that the designation is a scheme to mount a widespread witchhunt against patriotic, progressive and democratic forces who are fighting Duterte’s attempt to remain in power beyond 2022.
