Greetings from the CDPC-CPA network where CorDisRDS is an active member. CPA just concluded yesterday a three day regional Congress, and CDPC also had its assembly earlier in July this year.

Bandillo: Double whammy

Duterte in his audaciously humbug stance, delivered double whammy blows against the peace process. Proclamation No. 360 terminates the peace process between the government and the CPP-NPA-NDF and Proclamation 370 declares the revolutionary belligerent forces as identified terrorist organization under Republic Act No. 10168 or the Act Defining the Crime of Financing Terrorism.
