It is common knowledge that the Philippine Left and key partisan blocs in the Opposition led by the Yellowtards (rabid followers of the Aquino-Cojuangco clan) are working together to undermine and even overthrow the Philippine Government through illegal and even violent means. Thus, the theory that the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) is somehow behind the engineering of a “human rights review” to be conducted by the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) may not be as very far-fetched as critics of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte claim.
Clues lie in the multitude of communist fronts that are in bed with the Yellowtards and even participating in legitimate political exercises such as national elections. A June 2019 report issued by the Global Security Review (GSR) included all-too-familiar names in a list of such fronts it cited as having strong links with the terrorist arm of the CPP, the New People’s Army (NPA)…
Legal fronts are composed of the following: the Makabayan bloc—Bayan, Anakbayan, Karapatan, Anakpawis, Act Teachers, Gabriela, and all other related groups.
More clues lie in the fact that it is mostly Western European states — the richest and most powerful members of the European Union (EU), specifically — that are backing this UNHRC incursion into the Philippines’ internal affairs.

Fortunately there is strong ongoing representation from the Philippine government at the EU requesting a review of funding being channeled through these groups and any more associated with these. The report, in fact, lists, among others, non-government organisations (NGOs) such as IBON Foundation, Karapatan, Mindanao Interfaith Services Foundation, Inc., and the Rural Missionaries of the Philippines
The EU “considers the Communist Party of the Philippines and the New People’s Army as terrorist groups,” which it reaffirmed in a March 2019 press release, according to the GSR report which adds…
The European Union’s commitment investigate the government’s allegations that EU funds have been donated to groups acting as legal fronts of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and its armed wing New People’s Army (NPA) is clear, as outlined in the statement. In April, it was announced that an external firm would be auditing EU grants to non-government organizations (NGOs) in the Philippines that were allegedly funneled to the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA).
Filipinos are well-advised to take seriously (and not simply laugh along with the Yellowtards) the possibility that the UNHRC “investigation” into “human rights abuses” in the Philippines could be just another key component of the ongoing “workers’ revolution” being waged by the CPP and its terrorist arm, the NPA. The aim of this revolution is the violent overthrow of any duly-elected government in the Philippines and install a “dictatorship of the proletariat”. This makes this whole circus in the name of “human rights” a mere quaint stunt perpetrated by Philippine history’s biggest hypocrites and, possibly, the work of criminals.
