    Kapag ang NPA nakapaty nang police o militar okay lang gobyerno natin, pero kapag ang police o militar naman sinaktan o ikinulong ang NPA member mabilis pa sa alas cuatro ang Human Rights activists para sumuporta sa mga NPA… ano ba yan??? Calling Gen. Palparan lumantad ka na….


      You’re right. Am not a supporter of palparan but I noticed that every time there’s an NPA attack, it’s always ‘alleged’ but when it’s our lawmakers who are involved and not the lawbreakers, the media is almost always certain and they cry out for the violation of human rights. Talk about fair reporting.
