ANAD express serious reservations on new CHR Chair

August 25, 2010

“We in ANAD welcomes, but with serious reservations, the appointment of Ms. Loreta Ann ‘Etta” Rosales as Chairman of the Commission on Human Rights,” says ANAD Rep. Jun Alcover today.

The pro-democracy ALLIANCE FOR NATIONALISM AND DEMOCRACY (ANAD) Partylist expressed this sentiment due to the imminent assumption of Ms. Rosales to office, expected to be within days from today.

Ms. Rosales, a staunch advocate of Euro communism and a former member of the House of Representatives representing Akbayan Partylist, is the first CHR Chairperson coming from the ranks of the communist groups in the country.

“We should not call them progressives or militants for they show not militancy nor are they serious in pushing for a progressive Philippines, in its ultimate goal, but to supplant our democracy and freedom with a Marxist-Leninist communist ideology based on collectivism and state control by an elite party composed of a few,” said Rep. Alcover.

“While they are at odds with the Maoist terrorist CPP-NPA-NDF, the group of Akbayan is very much into parliamentary struggle to attain its objectives,” Rep. Alcover explained.

“We cannot forget the fact that Ms. Rosales was formerly riding on the same boat with the Maoist terrorist CPP-NPA-NDF but later on parted ways due to unresolved differences with the Jose Ma. Sison led Maoist terrorists brought about by the latter’s unabated murders and extortion activities,” he added.

“The fact stands that there maybe ideological and operational differences between the Maoist terrorist and the group of Akbayan, yet they converge and join forces when common issues are being raised through mass actions and street protests,” said Rep. Alcover, a former member of the Maoist CPP-NPA-NDF in Eastern and Central Visayas.

ANAD still hopes that despite her political leanings, Ms. Rosales should, without prejudicial biases, seriously implement the mandates of her office. “The constitutional mandate of her office should not be compromised mainly because of ideological differences and objectives. While we have expressed serious concerns on the issues of extra-judicial killings, arbitrary detention, and blatant manipulation of public opinion by the Maoist terrorist propagandists, during the stewardship of Ms. Rosales predecessor, it is our hope that her leadership should vigorously pursue the investigation and prosecution of human rights violations, particularly those committed by the Maoist terrorist NPA and other private armed groups, like the Davao Death Squad (DDS) of Digong Duterte in Davao City,” Alcover pointed out.

MAG should call on the NPAs instead!

August 23, 2010

The ALLIANCE FOR NATIONALISM AND DEMOCRACY (ANAD) Partylist decried Medical Action Group’s (MAG) recent statement as biased, unjust, and speaks loudly of it being a sectoral front group of the Maoist terrorist CPP-NPA-NDF.

MAG, one of the sectoral front organizations under Bagong Alyansa Makabayan (BAYAN) and the National Democratic Front (NDF) called on the Aquino administration to announce a policy of “total elimination” of all acts of torture. (08/21/2010, www.gmanews.tv)

“Why address the call only to the government when the Maoist terrorist CPP-NPA-NDF is the known no. 1 violator of human rights today, with emphasis on torture and untold trauma being borne by Filipino children and women,” said ANAD Rep. Jun Alcover who pointed to the series of violations perpetrated by the Godless, violent, and inhuman Maoist terrorist NPA.

“What about the treacherous murder of Barangay Councilman Rolando de Guia of Barangay Imelda, by the NPA, in front of his family at about 5:30 in the morning of August 21, 2010 and the killing of 8 responding PNP personnel, in the same town, who were ambushed by an exploded landmine and finished off with shots to the head while in the throes of death; a PNP officer killed in Lianga, Surigao del Sur on the same day; the torture and killing of Elmer Eusebio, infront of his family in Barangay Sta. Cruz, Pandan, Catanduanes; the use of 13-year old boy (name withheld), as guide around the village, in Sitio Subo, Sta. Catalina, Negros Oriental by a 5-man team  of the human rights group Karapatan, without the knowledge and consent of the boy’s parents,” said Rep. Alcover as he singled out some of the recent violations of the Maoist terrorist NPA against innocent and helpless Filipinos.

“These are only a few of the incidents in ANAD’s long list of human rights violations committed by the Maoist terrorist NPAs who, in the past 41-years, have been masquerading as pro-poor, pro-people, and protectors of human rights,” he added.

“MAG is no different from the other sectoral front and pseudo partylist organizations under Bayan and the NDF. One cannot expect anything good from any of them for they only serve one purpose – – – the interest and goals of the Maoist terrorist CPP,” Rep. Alcover explained.

“I challenge MAG, to shed off their Maoist terrorist color and be true to their sworn oath in the medical and health services profession. Instead, call on your comrades in the Maoist terrorist organization to immediately stop violating our people’s rights, lay down their firearms, and go back to the negotiating table for peace with the government,” Rep. Alcover said.

“This is the only way where MAG would effectively exculpate itself from the venoms of Maoist terrorism and be true to their duty and responsibility to serve our people,” he added.

Have we forgotten the 1971 bombing of Plaza Miranda?

August 23, 2010

“Nothing has been said about the violence brought about by the infamous bombing of Plaza Miranda, in August 21, 1971 killing some 30 people and wounding hundreds others,” said ANAD Rep. Jun Alcover as he expressed sadness that the Filipinos have forgotten that bloody incident, which the Maoist terrorist’s propagandists peddled as President Ferdinand Marcos’s way to perpetuate himself in power; but later found out it was the handiwork of Maoist terrorist CPP-NPA-NDF, upon orders of Jose Ma. Sison, chairman of the Maoist terrorist CPP Central Committee.

Rep. Alcover said that much has been said about the death anniversary of Senator Ninoy Aquino, last August 21, 2010, but there was hardly any mention of that bloody carnage, at the height of the Liberal Party’s political rally in Plaza Miranda that many political pundits said could have obliterated our country’s freedom and democracy.

“No one, including myself, would question Senator Aquino’s martyrdom, but we should not forget the inhuman and violent incident in Plaza Miranda that nearly killed then Senate President Jovito Salonga,” he pointed out.

Pointing to the silence of Maoist terrorist black propagandist, Rep. Alcover asked, “Are we to fall prey to the black propaganda of the Maoist terrorist sectoral front and pseudo partylist personalities who are decidedly out to manipulate our country’s history by persistently blaming on Marcos’s alleged political agenda, while at the same time maintaining their damning silence on the involvement of Jose Ma. Sison and the Maoist CPP Central Committee as documented in several books written by known anti-Marcos personalities?” he added.

Alcover was referring to: A Journey of Struggle and Hope by Sen. Salonga; Silent War by Victor Corpus, and the testimony of Ruben Guevarra, erstwhile member of the CPP Central Committee before the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee who clearly and without qualms pointed to Jose Ma. Sison as the mastermind of that gory incident.

“Are we to easily forget Plaza Miranda and its significance in relation to our struggle to strengthen our democratic and free country simply because the Maoist terrorist propagandists have shown their open reluctance and moribund mind to manipulate the Filipinos’ mind away from the truth whereby Sison easily stands out as the “Butcher of Freedom and Democracy!” Alcover quipped.

“Yes, Sison is the butcher of our free and democratic political being,” Rep. Alcover as he pointed to the 41-years of Maoist terrorist insurgency that is solid in its commitment  to bring down and totally destroy our freedoms and democratic institutions using inhuman, violent, devious and malicious means against our country and people.

Joma’s hand in the bombing of Plaza Miranda is undeniable!

August 19, 2010

“It’s high time to correct the imperfections and distortions in our country’s history,” said ANAD Rep. Jun Alcover as he called on the Filipinos not to forget the August 21, 1971 bombing of Plaza Miranda..

Rep. Alcover slammed the Maoist terrorists CPP-NPA-NDF, particularly Jose Ma. Sison, Satur Ocampo, Liza Maza, Bayan Secretary-General Renato Reyes, and other leaders of the Maoist terrorist sectoral front and partylist organizations for pointing to then President Ferdinand Marcos as the mastermind in the bombing of the LP rally in Plaza Miranda to perpetuate him, his family, and cronies in power.

“That is a complete lie! Documents and literary works of renowned anti-Marcos personalities have made startling revelations that point to Jose Ma. Sison as the mastermind of the Plaza Miranda bombing that claimed the lives of 30 innocent people and hundreds others injured, including the Senate President Jovito Salonga and other top leaders of the then Liberal Party,” said Rep. Alcover.

Rep. Alcover chided Joma Sison for spewing concocted stories to exculpate him from any responsibility in this highly despicable crime against humanity. “Ruben Guevarra, aka Ka Peter and erstwhile member of the Maoist terrorist Central Committee admitted, in his testimony before the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee that he was present during a meeting in the afternoon of August 21, 1971, in a house in Paranaque City, where Jose Ma. Sison ordered Danny Cordero and his companion to bomb the LP rally in Plaza Miranda in order to create a revolutionary situation in the country,” Rep. Alcover pointed out.

“Even Sen. Salonga, in his book: A Journey of Struggle and Hope, said that while he was in Encino, California, USA, he met a certain Ariel Almendral, a member of the CPP, who told him that he witnessed the trial of Danny Cordero, who then spoke about his role and that of Joma Sison in the bombing of Plaza Miranda,” he added.

“Now the worms are out in the open. Contrary to what the Maoist political trumpeters have been saying all along, Marcos’ hands were not awash with bad blood but it was Jose Ma. Sison’s overzealous mind that came into play to stir public unrest and create a situation ripe for a bloody uprising against government,” Rep. Alcover stressed.

“It would be a great disservice by the Filipino nation if we fail to cleanse our history with the dirt and imperfections brought about by Maoist terrorist agitational propagandists,” Rep. Alcover explained.

Extra-judicial killings: NPA’s are responsible too!

August 17, 2010

“Extra-judicial killings are in the milieu of the Maoist terrorist CPP-NPA-NDF! Why focus only on the military and other government security forces and not include the Maoist terrorist CPP-NPA-NDF?”

This is the question poised by the ALLIANCE FOR NATIONALISM AND DEMOCRACY (ANAD) in response to the Maoist terrorist sectoral front and pseudo partylist organizations’ criticism of the AFP’s extending Oplan Bantay Laya until the end of 2010 (www.gmanews.tv and www.inquirer.net, 8-17-10).

“They accuse government, citing among others the Alston report, as responsible in the country’s extra-judicial killings (sic!). But, without even a whimper, they are damn silent on the many incidents of murders and extortions perpetrated with impunity by the Maoist terrorist N-P-A victimizing the lowly folks in the countryside,” said ANAD Rep. Jun Alcover as he slammed Satur Ocampo, Bayan’s Renato Reyes, and other personalities of the Maoist terrorist front organizations for openly conspiring against the true will of the Filipino people and government.

Rep. Alcover pointed to the ever watchful eyes of Maoist terrorist sectoral front personalities to quickly raise issues, immediately blame, and put an image of disdain against government before the international community of nations.

“Lamentable is the scenario painted by the scorns of Jose Ma. Sison, e.g. Ocampo, Reyes, Liza Maza, Teodoro Casino and Neri Colmenares of Bayan Muna, Raymund Palatino of Kabataan, Luzviminda Ilagan and Emerciana de Jesus of Gabriela, Rafael Mariano of Anakpawis, and Antonio Tinio of ACT, that only government should be held liable for the incidence of extra-judicial killings in the country,” said Rep. Alcover.

It can be recalled that in February 25, 2010, the Commission on Human Rights, with then chairperson Leila de Lima and four other Commissioners, issued a HUMAN RIGHTS ADVISORY CHR (IV) A2010-002 referring to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the International Conventions on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR)explicitly pointed out the responsibility of “non-state actors” (Maoist terrorist NPA and other lawless groups and personalities) to uphold and protect the rights of individuals and ensure their safety from harms way.

“Ocampo and his ilk are so engrossed in playing deaf and dumb on the unabated murders, harassments, and extortion activities mercilessly perpetrated by the violent and inhuman Maoist terrorist NPA against innocent and helpless civilians in the countryside,” Alcover stressed.

“Ocampo’s, together with his minions in the NDF, continued refusal to make the Maoist terrorist NPA answerable and accountable for the crimes they committed against humanity would make them no different from Joma’s bearers of doom and should likewise be condemned by the civilized and free nations of the world,” he added.

Give to the farmers their right to chart their destiny, says ANAD

August 12, 2010

“The farmer-beneficiaries of Hacienda Luisita should be given the chance to write their destiny,” said ANAD Rep. Jun Alcover in reaction to the incessant machinations by Maoist terrorist organizations and some other sectors against the Compromise Agreement entered into by some 10,000 farmers of Hacienda Luisita and the management of Hacienda Luisita Inc. (HLI) in Tarlac, last week.

Rep. Alcover said that the decision of the farmer-beneficiaries to opt for the Compromise Agreement must be respected. “70% of the 10,502 farmers signed the Compromise deal is more than a simple majority needed to clinch a decision,” said Rep. Alcover.

“This is how democracy works. They can choose either to go for SDO or own a productive agricultural land. This is aside from the financial assistance package worth 150 million pesos that HLI will extend to the farmer-beneficiaries,” said Rep. Alcover as he described as destructive, selfish, undemocratic, and malicious recent statements opposing the compromise deal.

Rep. Alcover pointed to the machinations made by the Kilusan Magbubukid ng Pilipinas (KMP, and other Maoist terrorist sectoral front organizations who wanted to dip their fingers and muddle the situation. “KMP and its cohorts have envisioned establishing a Maoist collective system in the 6,433 has. of land in Hacienda Luisita by way of the so-called cooperative scheme which had miserably failed, in the past years, and deprived the farmers of their land, property, and a chance to improve their lot when bankruptcy was declared after years of operation as a cooperative,” Rep. Alcover explained.

“What happened to the so-called ‘collective’ farmers in the Davao region, Caraga, Negros Islands, Samar, and Leyte, will also happen to the farmer-beneficiaries of Hacienda Luisita,” Rep. Alcover warned.

“KMP or Bayan and some ego-centric demagogues should stop interfering with the affairs and lives of these farmer-beneficiaries of the unions – – United Luisita Workers Union (ULWU), Alyansa ng mga Mangagawang Bukid sa Asyenda Luisita (AMBALA), and the Farmworkers Agrarian Reform Movement Luisita (FARM-Luisita),” he opined.

Fending off critics to the compromise deal, Rep. Alcover noted that the decision of the farmers to go ahead with the signing of the deal was mainly due to their need for work and money. “Who can deny these from these farmers who have already suffered so much for many years while under the selfish and narrow minded union leaders, particularly those used as stooges by the Maoist terrorist sectoral front organizations,” he added.

“Giving to our people the choice to chart their own destiny is what democracy is all about. Enslaving them, under the guise of protecting their rights is unbearable, outrageous, and must be condemned by the free and civilized world. By pulling the strings to drag President Aquino into the fray, only because he is a Cojuangco, the purveyors of doom could easily make a political issue and launch a vicious propaganda campaign against his administration,” Rep. Alcover stressed.
