CPP-NPA Still Pursuing the Red October Plot to Oust Pres. Duterte Despite Expose of AFP

The Communist Party of the Philippines and it's armed wing the New People's Army is still pursuing its plans for the ouster of Pres. Rody Duterte through their controversial Red October Plot despite the expose made by the President and the top officials of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).

AFP Assistant Deputy Chief for Operations Brig. Gen. Antonio Parlade said that despite exposing the plot to usneat Pres. Duterte, the communist side with the help of their legal fronts and members of the opposition is still pushing with their Red October plans.

In an interview with the media, Brig. Gen. Parlade said that aside from Oplan Aklasan, the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army (CPP-NPA), are also planning to conduct what he calls Daluyong Manggagawa where peasants and workers will take part in social unrest.

The AFP revealed that one example of social unrests is rioting or when a large group of people behave in a violent and uncontrolled way. Another example is a rebellion, which is similar to a riot, but is generally planned and more organized. Social unrest can also be expressed through peaceful protesting, also known as nonviolent resistance.

Brig. Gen. Parlade was quoted as saying "Koda nila yan. Meron silang activity na tinatawag na Daluyong Mangagawa. Parang ano ito e, kasama diyan ‘yung, parang social unrest among itong mangangawa, mga peasants, meron silang ganun, ngayong October ‘yun. (That’s their koda. They have this activity what they call Daluyong Mangagawa. It’s like, part of it is social unrest among workers, peasants. they have that this October).”

“It will have various phases.,that’s part of Red October,” he added.

The AFP also noted that despite the plans of the CPP-NPA to unseat Pres. Duterte, chances of it to become successful is very slim considering that they cannot generate enough support from schools, the church, union members and etc.

The plans of the CPP-NPA will have two tracks, aside from social unrest, the communist side is also planning to conduct tactical offensives or coordinated attacks in the whole Philippines. The tactical offensives based upon intelligence reports of the AFP will start from October up to November 2018.

“The tactical offensives will be conducted on police stations and army posts. Their objective is to show that they are still a force to reckon with. Fortunately, their previous attacks like in Sorsogon, in Mindanao which are near highways and towns were a failure,” he said.

Brig. Gen. Parlade also revealed that the AFP were able to recover documents that various Anti-Duterte groups are plotting to unseat President Rody Duterte from power. The main objective is to oust the President using issues like extrajudicial killings, martial law, inflation, the increase in the prices of basic commodities, and tyranny of the media, including the opposition.
