MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has identified the leftist group or the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) as being behind the movement of the militant group Kalipunan ng Damayang Mahihirap (Kadamay).
Kadamay members forcefully occupied more than 5,000 government housing units of The National Housing Authority in Bulacan.
The President made his statement when he visited the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Western Command at Camp General Artermio Ricarte, in Puerto Princesa City Palawan.
“I would want to make first the report that your houses were taken by people who are poor like us. But those are the guys being used by the Left,” he said.
Senator Antonio Trillanes, one of Duterte’s most vocal critics, agrees with the President on this.
“I received information from the security sector that Kadamay is a front organization of the communists. So if that is true, there are security implications
Because they have a community which is a sanctuary for communists,” he said.
Meanwhile, President Duterte has once again asked the military to let the Kadamay members occupy the housing projects.
He also promised fully furnished housing units for the uniformed personnel of the AFP and PNP.
However, the President warns those who are planning to do what Kadamay members have done in Bulacan.
“They will not be able to do this again because next time that I will build the houses for the police and the military I will guard those with five M-60 and a bazooka. At the first entry, they will really be attacked. I am just being patient because they are poor too,” Duterte said. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News and Rescue
