It has now come to pass that Amboy Duterte will extend martial law in Mindanao for another year after falling flat on his face on his “revolutionary government” and federalist ambitions. He has resorted to calling on his minions in congress to grant him and his military cabal a full year of martial rule to carry out his triple wars of suppression.
That this will result in unmitigated death and destruction goes without saying. That this came after his declaration of the CPP and NPA as terrorists and simple criminals and his unbridled hostility to the legal democratic movement, speaks loudly and clearly of his intention to impose nationwide martial law. With barely concealed steps, Duterte is setting up his fascist dictatorship to perpetuate himself in power.
The people and the revolutionary movement are ready to defend themselves and will meet him head-on.
