THE MANGAHAS INTERVIEWS Marcos' security adviser says red-tagging not productive

“When you have run out of arguments, you label. It's not a productive thing 'tsaka antithetical 'yan sa presumption of innocence, hindi ba?… Why are we doing things that are not productive? Let's stop doing that,” Carlos said in the latest episode of The Mangahas Interviews.

“When you have run out of arguments, you label.It's not a productive thing 'tsaka antithetical 'yan sa presumption of innocence, hindi ba?… Why are we doing things that are not productive? Let's stop doing that,” Carlos said in the latest episode of The Mangahas Interviews..(When you have run out of arguments, you label.In fact, we encourage and protect it,” he said.It's not a productive thing and it's antithetical to the presumption of innocence, right?… Why are we doing things that are not productive? Let's stop doing that.the government forces, we do not do red-tagging.) “Labeling ba helps you? No.They have established pervasive online presence through their websites that they continually use to publish propaganda and misinformation campaigns in order to malign the Philippine government, recruit new members, and to solicit funds from local and international sources,” it added.

Huwag mo na aksayahin ang panahon mo na maglabel-label ka dyan.Sino ba yung nagsabing mang-red tag, 'di ba si Joma Sison?” he said.Lorenzana said this will contribute to the government’s effort to defeat the communist terrorist group New People’s Army (NPA).That’s what I mean.I'm sure maraming nagalit sakin..Karapatan mo naman magalit pero karapatan ko rin mag-insist that labeling does not work,” she said.” In a statement, Marco Valbuena, the chief information officer of CPP, said it was the government’s desperate bid to censor online criticisms and dissent against incoming President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos.(Does labeling help you? No.the government forces, we do not do red-tagging.Down since last night, our website is the Filipino fishers’ major platform to amplify legitimate issues and calls,” it said in a Twitter post.

So don’t waste your time labeling.That’s what I mean.Earlier, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) ordered internet service providers to block websites allegedly linked to CPP upon National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon Jr.He said the others were websites of local cause-oriented groups, alternative news and international organizations.I’m sure I angered some people.Well that’s their right but I also have the right to insist that labeling does not work.Asked about the inclusion of independent media Bulatlat and Pinoy Weekly in the list of websites provided by Esperon to the NTC, De Leon said the blocking of these sites has basis.) Carlos previously said she wanted to put a stop to “red-tagging”, claiming there was nothing to gain from it.SunStar reserves the right to delete, reproduce, or modify comments posted here without notice.(SunStar Philippines) View Comments Disclaimer SunStar website welcomes friendly debate, but comments posted on this site do not necessarily reflect the views of the SunStar management and its affiliates.

She added that the administration of incoming President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.(My take on that is I presume, knowing Secretary Jun Esperon, that if he made a request, these are based on validated reports and with enough bases.would instead focus on addressing the root causes of insurgency — injustice and the lack of opportunity.“Hindi tayo consistent na yung mga success natin ay hindi natin nire-replicate.On Thursday, the CPP said ordered blocked by the NTC are affiliated with the party.Some words have been banned.Ang dami ng success, 'di ba? And we’re saying do it from the ground kasi ang ugat talaga 'andoon eh.Ugatin mo sya.Instead of accusing personalities as communist rebels, she said the next administration under President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.Stick to the topic.

Ugatin mo yung lack of justice…and lack of opportunities sa mga kabataan natin,” Carlos said.Be coherent.(We’re not consistent in a way that our successes were not being replicated.—LBG, GMA News.We have a lot of success, right? But we’re saying do it from the ground because the root causes are there — the lack of justice and opportunities for the youth.) “Bigyan mo ng opportunity na mag-aral, ng opportunity na maging healthy.Health is a security issue.

Tapos bigyan mo ng opportunity na mag-flourish sya as an individual.Kasi siya ‘yung magco-contribute sa pag build ng better Philippines,” she added.(Give them the opportunity to learn and to be healthy.Health is a security issue.Then give them the opportunity to flourish as an individual.

Because they will contribute to building a better Philippines.) Instead of labeling them as terrorists, the University of the Philippines professor also proposed that authorities use terms under the Penal Code.“Ang hirap-hirap i-define ng terorismo.Tinuturo ko ‘yan eh.Lampas 100 ang definition ng terrorism.

Ang UN [United Nations] hindi makahingi ng consensus sa defintion nyan.Bakit? Because terrorism is a political-related term,” said Carlos.(Terrorism is hard to define.I teach that.There are over 100 definitions for it.

Even the UN cannot ask for a consensus on its definition.Why? Because terrorism is a political-related term.) “Gumamit ka na lang ng terms na nasa Penal Code kasi defined na defined ‘yan in operational component,” she added.(Just use terms under the Penal Code because those are defined in the operational component.) The Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines, meanwhile, expressed grave concern over the order of the National Telecommunications Commission to block certain websites allegedly linked to "communist-terrorists" upon request by outgoing NSA Hermogenes Esperon Jr.

Among the over 20 sites Esperon requested blocked were those of progressive groups Save Our Schools Network, Rural Missionaries of the Philippines, Pamalakaya Pilipinas, and BAYAN.It also included independent news organizations Bulatlat and Pinoy Weekly.The FOCAP said restricting access to news organizations' websites deprives the public of information and "mutes the voices that would have otherwise found resonance in its reporting." "Actions taken by government agencies to censure independent media that comprise the country’s diverse and vibrant Fourth Estate is lamentable.Attempts to control narratives and suppress criticism of government policies violate democratic principles," FOCAP said in a statement.

"Thus, we urge the Commission to reconsider its order, and to recognize that the plurality of voices are not threats, but an important part in crafting government policies that will benefit the marginalized sectors of society," it added.Independent organization Human Rights Watch defines “red-tagging” or “red-baiting” as the act of “publicly accusing activists, journalists, politicians, and others and their organizations of being directly involved in the fighting or supporting the New People’s Army.” It also claimed those who were victimized by “red-tagging” often end up being harassed or killed.—Sundy Mae Locus and Anna Felicia Bajo/NB/KBK, GMA News Tags:.
