Pinalagan ni Lt. General Antonio Parlade ang naging aksyon ni Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso sa mga anti-NPA tarpaulin sa Maynila.
Magugunita na pinatatanggal ni Mayor Isko ang mga nasabing tarpaulin at sinabing dapat daw bigyan ng pag-asa ang bawat Pilipino.
“There is pandemic, what we need is to continue to give hope to each and everyone, spread love and compassion, pagmamalasakit sa kapwa… Ayoko ng toxic sa buhay nowadays. Napaka-toxic ng pamumuhay ng tao. Hirap na ang tao. Ano man ilagay niyong poster-poster diyan, whether pro-government, anti-government, whether pro-politician, anti-politician, it will not help or ease the situation of our people… We do not need those kind of shenanigans nowadays. We must continue to respect each other. At the end of the day, we are an archipelagic country… Huwag niyo na ilagay ‘yan sa Maynila, uubusin ko ‘yan. Whether pro-government kayo, anti-government kayo, aalisin ko ‘yan,” sabi ni Mayor Isko
Ang hakbang na ito ng alkalde ay hindi pinalampas ni Lt. Gen. parlade. Banat ni Parlade, takot ba si Mayor Isko sa paghihiganti ng mga makakaliwa.
“I dont know who ordered it and Im not privy to latest decision of NTF ELCAC on this. But, why not? 96 cities nationwide already declared the CPP NPA as PNG so my question really is WHY JUST NOW in MManila? Why would even Manila order the removal of this tarps? Is Mayor Isko welcoming this terrorist? Lets clarify from Yorme the basis for his action? Is it fear of retribution?
Lets take a look at the leadership of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila. From Pres down, mostly Gabriela and staff of Taguiwalo booted out of DSWD. Who has the appointing power and authority in this university?
Yes, Mayor. Lets give peace a chance in Manila. Keep the terrorist CPP NPA NDF out of it,” buwelta ni Parlade.
