I wonder what the Negros NPA are thinking these days since Duterte declared them terrorist. I know many mountain people and I am sure that they must be or know and/or support the NPA in principle. I never thought of the Negros NPA as being violent or threatening here. On back hill bike rides I have always been met with children smiling and waving. I am not a communist nor would I want to live under communism but I am not a poor Filipino who lives in poverty while the elitist plunder the bounty for themselves. I suppose in theory all they want is a better life and a share of the bounty. But since the bounty in the Philippines is held by a few elite familias.. the average Negrosian has no beef with them. I know one thing. Aggression breeds aggression. Anyone have friends or family that would know what think? I hate for them to be persecuted because of a different philosophy. Thoughts?
