On the 50th founding anniversary of the Communist Party of the Philippines on Wednesday, a former "top-ranking" cadre claimed that the revolutionary movement's cause is doomed to fail because of its wrongdoings and lies against the masses.
Ka Danny, who claimed to have spent 18 years of his life in the communist movement, said the "CPP has no chance of winning its revolutionary war."
"If they (communists) are really sincere in what they are fighting for, there will come a time that they will succeed. But in reality, they are just using past peace talks to deceive the youth and try to teach them that the country is experiencing a rotten political system," Ka Danny said in a statement sent to media.
He said that for 18 years he had been a member of the CPP as an official of the higher organ of the so-called "Legal and Unification Committee."
Also, he claimed he was a political officer of three party-list congressmen from Bayan Muna, Anakpawis and ACT-Teachers, and vouched that the political groups are just legal fronts of the CPP.
According to Ka Danny, these party-list organizations are not really representing the people because it is the Party who runs the show for them.
“This is one of the reasons why we left the organization. While we stake our lives in the war we are waging, Jose Maria Sison and other members of the higher organ are living comfortable lives abroad," he added .
The former members are also calling on the active members of the CPP not to deceive the youth they are targeting for recruitment.
On the other hand, Mario Ludades of the No to Communist Terrorist Group Coalition (NTCC) is calling for a stop of the 50 years of lies and deceit of the masses by the CPP.
Also an IP leader in the Cordillera Administrative Region and the original of the 18 founders of CPP, Ludades said that only Joma remains in the party.
It can be recalled that one by one a lot of founders detached themselves from the group because of Joma's dictatorial rule and “self-centered” style of leadership, he said.
“Those intellectual youth and individuals, those who were victims of purging in the organization from the peasant group, workers, laborers, students, indigenous people are the ones being sacrificed for the CPP's lost cause and Sison is living a good life in the Netherlands," he added.
Ludades also named other “legal fronts” supposedly used by the CPP, including the League of Filipino Students, National Union of Journalists of the Philippines, College Editors Guild of the Philippines, and Students Christian Movement of the Philippines.
Meanwhile, a post on alternative media bulatlat.com early Wednesday morning that featured the exploits of the CPP in the Bicol region, narrated an unbroken chain of three generations carrying out the people's democratic war and its "victory" in winning the hearts and minds of the people.
But at about 1 p.m., Bulatlat's account was suspended. —LBG, GMA News
