The National Task Force to End Local Communists Armed Conflict (NTF- ELCAC) yesterday urged parents to protect their children from joining rallies to prevent them from being recruited by communist groups.

National Intelligence Coordinating Agency (NICA) Director General Alex Monteagudo claimed that based on intelligence reports they have received, rallies across the country are instigated by the Communist Party of the Philippines – New People’s Army – National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF).

“Their objective is to cause a ‘crisis situation’ for them to prosper,” Monteagudo said.

NTF-ELCAC’s acting spokesperson on legal affairs Flosemer Chris Gonzales said everyone must respect the “voice of majority” as the country must “unite and reconcile” after the May 9 elections.

“Protect your children. Do not allow them to be radicalized by these groups pretending to human rights defenders,” he said.

Gonzales also asked schools and university to watch over their students as well as their own institution so as “not to be exploited” by calls to join left-leaning rallies.
