Sec. Año's "Outstanding" Video Presentation in Senate Hearing Sen. Hontiveros Don't Want the Public to See

During the recently concluded hearing and Senate probe on red tagging, Interior and Local Government Secretary Año did a video presentation showing former students who started as members of the so-called legal fronts like Gabriela, Kabataan and other leftist partylists and eventually became regular NPA cadres.


These former student activists, unfortunately, met their tragic and untimely deaths during encounters with the Philippine military.


PCOO Undersecretary Lorraine Badoy called the video presentation of Sec. Año as "outstanding" that Sen. Risa Hontiveros raised an objection because she found it offensive.  

According to USec Badoy, Sen. Risa Hontiveros didn't want shown in public because it offended the senator. Badoy stated that she understand where Sen. Hontiveros was coming from. 

The PCOO official threw a shade on Sen. Hontiveros for finding the images offensive more than the circumstances that led the youth to their tragic ends. 

She put Sen. Risa Hontiveros in an uncomfortable position by coming up with another brilliant line that says:

"And that if we're goind to speak up about these photos at all, we MUST speak too about the deceptive recruitment of our children by the CPP NPA NDF fronts." USec Badoy stated. 


Read the Complete Post of USec Badoy:

This is the video in Sec Año's outstanding presentation during the Senate hearing on redtagging- images Senator Risa Hontiveros didn't want shown in public bec it offended her. 

I think what she meant was - if the mothers of these children who lost their lives in such violent circumstances saw those images, it would traumatize them again. 

But I'm thinking- how do these mothers  continue to live after such a heartrending loss? How do they manage to wake up and breathe and get through their days? 


And how many mothers are out there whose lives have become irreparably broken bec of the CPP NPA NDF's deceptive recruitment using their fronts: GABRIELA, LFS. ANAKBAYAN, CEGP, IBON, BAYAN MUNA, ACT, KARAPATAN, etc? 

I think, Madame Senator, in the greater scheme of what it is these mothers have lost, those photos amount to nothing. 

And that there has to be something terribly terribly wrong with us if images of dead children offend us far more than the REASON these children are dead. 

And that if we're going to speak up about these photos at all, we MUST speak too about the deceptive recruitment of our children by the CPP NPA NDF fronts. 

And I didn't hear you speak a word against LFS, ANAKBAYAN, CEGP, GABRIELA, ACT, IBON, KABATAAN, KARAPATAN, etc. 


Who I heard you defend though were the high ranking party member of the CPP NPA NDF Central Committee installed in the House of Representatives: the Makabayan Bloc, Madame Senator- those DIRECTLY responsible for the deaths of these children.

Why?
