Bayan Secretary General Renato Reyes Jr. criticizes President Rodrigo Duterte that he is more worried about the Red October reports than inflation. He alleged that his faction is suffering from the poor Ber months starting this month due to the surging prices of commodities. Activists like him dubbed as the Yellows blame the President for what the perceive as anti-poor policies. They cite the tax reform law as.one of the reasons. They seem to have no clue that the economic situation is a world issue. Gasoline now costs $100 per barrel. All countries in the world face the same issue due to the dwindling sources of gasoline. Reyes proves that people with poverty mentality can only blame others for their misfortunes.

Corrupting the Youth
The Communist Party of the Philippines is planning a “Red October”. According to Armed Forces Chief of Staff, Carlito Galvez Jr., the CPP has organized in at least 10 universities in the Metro for the plot to oust President Duterte. The traces gathered involving the activities of Reyes with the communist group can support this allegation.
The CPP has been working on the “Red October” plot since September 21 according to Galvez. They started with an “information drive” comparing Duterte’s administration to the alleged abuses during the Marcos regime. He also adds that this is a part of “Oplan Talsik”. The “Oplan Talsik”, is a series of mass mobilizations of youth and labor sectors. This will continue until December, in line with the 50th founding anniversary of the CPP.
Triggering Martial Law Declaration
Galvez is also claiming that the communists intend to drag Duterte into declaring martial law as a political death trap. He compares it to the Plaza Miranda bombing of the 1970s. The authorities contemplate that a more or less similar scenario can happen again as per the nature of the rebels’ history.
LP Might be Out but Not the Yellows
Galvez also clarifies that the Liberal Party is not part of the CPP’s “Red October”. However, he adds that the CPP does desire to form a coalition with opposition groups to be able to oust the President. The party might not be officially associated with the communists but many of them especially the yellow-minded can only support the insurgents because of their intention to get rid of Duterte.
Senator Francis Pangilinan, however, as the Liberal Party president points out that there is a difference between a desire to merge with other groups and having an actual coalition with the opposition. The statement of Galvez also contradicts the previous statement made by Brig. Gen Antonio Parlade. Parlade claimed that the opposition groups are in connivance with one another to remove Duterte from his presidency.
