MANILA – The anti-communist group League of Parents of the Philippines (LPP) marched past the entrance of the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman campus on Monday, urging administrators and professors to be more cautious with the new group of students for the upcoming school year.

The organization, along with the Liga Independencia Pilipinas, marched down University Avenue in Quezon City with the instruction to monitor around 11,000 UP System freshmen.

“We, parents, will not stop until the recruitment of our children also stop. We want our children to finish their studies but communist fronts inside UP lure them to join rallies, activism, immersion, take up arms, and fight the government. As a government-sponsored university, UP must be vigilant and not tolerate the presence of legal fronts that recruit students,” LPP president Remy Rosadio told reporters in Filipino.

According to Rosadio, communist terrorist groups use deceitful tactics to conceal their purpose against the government and the Filipino people.

Rosadio stated that the recruitment process begins with a “barkadahan” (peer group) method in which small discussion groups tackle national concerns.

She said that from there, students will be sent to immersion programs in the countryside, paving the road for their real enlistment into the New People’s Army (NPA).

“We call on the UP administration to crack down on these front organizations. Since time immemorial, it has identified who are they and the style and schemes. The leaders and infiltration teams and individuals are not new to them,” Rosadio continued.

The rallyists displayed photographs of UP graduates who had been recognized as NPA militants.

The United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the Philippines have identified the Communist Party of the Philippines-NPA as a terrorist group.
