Angel ‘wag gayahin–Parlade: Liza, Catriona binantaan ng heneral
NAGBABALA ang isang opisyal ng Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) laban sa mga celebrity na nadidikit sa makakaliwang grupo.
Partikular na pinangalanan ni Lt. Gen. Antonio Parlade Jr. ,National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) head ay ang aktres na si Angel Locsin na umano’y may koneksyon sa leftist at ang aktres na si Liza Soberano at Ms. Universe 2018 Catriona Gray.
Babala ni Parlade na ipinaskel sa NTF-ELCAC Facebook page sa aktres na si Soberano at Gray na ang pagdikit ng mga ito sa makakaliwang grupo ay hindi malayong maghatid ng kapahamakan sa kanila.
“The choice is yours Liza. And so with you Catriona. Don’t follow the path Ka Ella Colmenares (Locsin) took in the underground and NPA Quezon. I am sure Angel Locsin and Neri Colmenares will not tell you this,” giit pa nito.
Paliwanag ni Parlade hindi naman NPA si Soberano, kundi nagtutulak lamang mga karapatan ng kababaihan. Kaya dapat ay putulin na ang kanyang pakikipagkaibigan sa Gabriela Youth, kung saan aktibong nag-participate ang aktres sa women’s rights online talk.
“Is she an NPA? No, of course not. Not yet. So let’s help educate her and the other celebrity targets of Malayang Kilusan ng Bagong Kababaihan (MAKIBAKA), the Underground Mass Organization hiding under Gabriela Women’s Party,” dagdag ni Parlade.
Nanawagan rin ito kay Soberano na bitawan na ang grupo.
“Liza Soberano, there’ s still a chance to abdicate that group. If you don’t, you will suffer the same fate as Josephine Anne Lapira @ELLA, former Deputy Secretary General of Gabriela Youth of UP, Manila and defender of women’s rights, even against sexual predators amongst her comrades in the NPA unit she joined which is clearly stated in her handwritten letter addressed to a certain @EMIL. It’s a pity she learned about non sense things like nabbing a firearm, exploitation while already inside the underground. It was too late, she is dead,” ayon pa sa opisal.
Ganyan din ang panawagan ni Parlade kay Gray.
Agad namang bumwelta si Gabriela Rep. Arlene Brosas.
“Lieutenant General Antonio Parlade’s appeal to stop red-tagging Liza Soberano is starkly ironic because he actually red-tagged Soberano in his same statement. By saying that Soberano is ‘not yet an NPA,’ he is maliciously associating the actress with the armed movement when what she did in the youth forum was to only speak up for all the victims of gender-based violence and abuse,” ani Brosas.(Kiko Cueto)
