Quick response to Duterte’s threats to suspend writ of habeas corpus and declare revolutionary war
Duterte cannot engage in a revolutionary war because he is a counterrevolutionary agent of foreign monopoly capitalists, big compradors and big landlords. He is a bureaucrat capitalist of the worst kind.
He should not misappropriate and besmirch the noble calling of revolutionary. He is a tyrant, traitor, plunderer and mass murderer hell-bent on imposing a fascist dictatorship on the Filipino people through charter change to a bogus kind of federalism.
He is already engaged in de facto martial law nationwide and in the de facto suspension of the writ of habeas corpus. He is increasingly engaged in mass intimidation, mass arrests and mass murders.The people are therefore already rising up against his reign of greed and terror.
If he formally proclaims the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus or even martial law nationwide, he will only succeed in further enraging the people and inciting them to wage all forms of revolutionary resistance. The real revolutionary war is against his ongoing counterrevolutionary war.
