According to Anakbayan Cebu, Myles Albasin is “former chairperson of Anakbayan UP Cebu, who graduated in May 2017 with a degree in Mass Communication.

“She was active in advancing the plight and struggle of the farmers, fisher folks, and indigenous people, especially the Lumads, through her immersions and integrations with them,” Anakbayan Cebu said.

Anakbayan Cebu fears for the safety of Albasin and companion…

“The arrest of Albasin is alarming since the reactionary military forces have a track record of violent and inhumane treatments of their captives especially women. On 2014, Recca Monte, a UP Diliman student, was captured and was later found dead with injuries on the head, face, and chest. Josephine Lapira and Kamil Manangan, both women activist, were brutally murdered and were barely recognizable after an alleged encounter with the Armed Forces of the Philippines last November 2017. Last month, macho-fascist Rodrigo Duterte also released a misogynist remark of encouraging the military to shoot women rebels in their vagina. Now, the military has a move not to disclose the name of Albasin on media reports for “security reasons.” We fear for her and her companions’ safety as the military might closely have suspicious intentions behind this.”

Whether it was intentional or not, Anakbayan Cebu just made the situation worse for former comrade Myles Albasin with the following lines below.

We no longer blame the decision of thousands of Filipino youth to take the road of revolution. The worsening situation in a semi-feudal and semi-colonial Philippine society, intensified by the anti-poor and anti-people programs and policies of the US-Duterte regime, push the Filipino youth to take a decisive stand and action to be at the forefront in changing this system,” Anakbayan wrote.

Anakbayan Cebu took a swipe at tax reform law recently passed in Congress under the Duterte government.

“The Tax Reform on Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law of President Duterte will worsen the poverty experienced by the poor and will only benefit the few big businessmen and foreign investors.”

Anakbayan Cebu raises concern of an impending Duterte dictatorship as a result of constitutional reform being railroaded in Congress.

His administration also maneuvers to railroad the constitutional reform which will further legitimize the expansion of foreign nations on their control over our resources and will sooner lead to dictatorship of Duterte.”

Anakbayan Cebu asked Duterte to show sincerity by tackling the roots of the armed conflict if it hopes to achieve just and lasting peace.

“If strongman Duterte is sincere and honest in achieving a just and lasting peace, his administration should face the unrelenting calls of the oppressed Filipino people and genuinely tackle the roots of the armed conflict.”

Anakbayan Cebu ended the post asking the Duterte government to resume the suspended peace talks with the rebel group.

“Resume peace talks!
Oppose the macho-fascist US-Duterte regime!
Struggle for a just and lasting peace!”
