Netizens Reacts on Anakbayan Statement in the Capture of Myles Albasin

Netizens took to social media and reacted on the statement released on social media by Anakbayan UP Cebu defending their former leader from her actions when she was captured by the AFP in Negros Oriental.

According to some netizen, the statement of Anakbayan UP Cebu is an undeniable proof and evidence that Anakbayan is a terrorist organization.

The official statement of Anakbayan Cebu was posted on social media after the arrest of youth leader Myles Albasin and her five companions during an encounter with the government troops in Negros Oriental on Saturday dawn, March 3, 2018.

Anakbayan confirmed on their statement that indeed the alleged members of the New People's Army captured by the 62nd Infantry Batallion in Mabinay, Negros Oriental, includes UP graduate Myles Albasin, former chairperson of Anakbayan UP Cebu.

Here's the Complete Statement of Anakbayan Cebu:


Earlier this morning, six (6) alleged members of the New People’s Army were captured by the 62nd Infantry Batallion in Mabinay, Negros Oriental. Among the arrested is Myles Albasin, former chairperson of Anakbayan UP Cebu. She was a student leader who was awakened and has been exposed on the worsening educational crisis involving the Filipino youth. She was also active in advancing the plight and struggle of the farmers, fisherfolks, and indigenous people, especially the Lumads, through her immersions and integrations with them.

The arrest of Albasin is alarming since the reactionary military forces have a track record of violent and inhumane treatments of their captives especially women. On 2014, Recca Monte, a UP Diliman student, was captured and was later found dead with injuries on the head, face, and chest. Josephine Lapira and Kamil Manangan, both women activist, were brutally murdered and were barely recognizable after an alleged encounter with the Armed Forces of the Philippines last November 2017. Last month, macho-fascist Rodrigo Duterte also released a misogynist remark of encouraging the military to shoot women rebels in their vagina. Now, the military has a move not to disclose the name of Albasin on media reports for "security reasons." We fear for her and her companions’ safety as the military might closely have suspicious intentions behind this.

We no longer blame the decision of thousands of Filipino youth to take the road of revolution. The worsening situation in a semi-feudal and semi-colonial Philippine society, intensified by the anti-poor and anti-people programs and policies of the US-Duterte regime, push the Filipino youth to take a decisive stand and action to be at the forefront in changing this system. The Tax Reform on Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law of President Duterte will worsen the poverty experienced by the poor and will only benefit the few big businessmen and foreign investors. His administration also maneuvers to railroad the constitutional reform which will further legitimize the expansion of foreign nations on their control over our resources and will sooner lead to dictatorship of Duterte.

If strongman Duterte is sincere and honest in achieving a just and lasting peace, his administration should face the unrelenting calls of the oppressed Filipino people and genuinely tackle the roots of the armed conflict.

Resume peace talks!
Oppose the macho-fascist US-Duterte regime!
Struggle for a just and lasting peace!

Here's Some of the Comments by Netizens:

Joseph Carido Quipao: Anakbayan cebu, wala kayong puwang sa DU30 admin, Fuck NPA pagoda kau sa taong bayan na namuhay ng maayos dapat Kaung pulbusin, anakbayan Sana maubos na kau salot kau sa lipunan, fuck you a million times ANAKBAYAN sana maubos na kau,,y

Dante Susi: Dapat hulihin at ikulong na lahat ng mga kasapi ng Anakbayan bago dumami ang mga mauuto at mahihikayat nilang mga kabataan.

Jeff Randell Angara: Sayang lang ang pagpapa-aral sa kanila ng pamahalaan o mga binabayad nating buwis. Pagka-graduate ng mga yan, either puro rally lang ang gagawin ng mga yan o mga magiging rebelde/terrorista.

IamAlbert Rebs: Feel bad for her. She should have known better... Only in the Ph we can see students being recruited by party-list.. That's why party-list should be abolished, only used for personal purpose. Doesn't really do any help.

Dan Rex Sarmiento: It is an insult to all hardworking Pilipinos in the Philippines and abroad that these NPA traitors, murderers, robbers, extortioners, govt destabilizers will be given money, employment, education, homes when they surrender. Because they got tired of playing NPA games. It is another waste of taxpayers money. Taxpayers money is literally stolen or wasted by helping the undeserving and disregarding pleas of real hardworking Pilipinos.
