The ALLIANCE FOR NATIONALISM AND DEMOCRACY (ANAD) Partylist twitted Maoist pseudo partylist and front sectoral groups for using the alleged issue of “China’s illegal forays in the Spratlys group” to bolster their anti-American sloganeering and campaign.

ANAD Rep. Jun Alcover said that House Resolution No. 1420 filed by Bayan Muna’s Teddy Casiño and Neri Colmenares and the recent statement of Pamalakaya’s Fernando Hicap (6/22/11, and 6/21/11, contains the vicious trappings of Maoist communist deception and pretension.

“Where were they when media reports were abuzz about these illegal Chinese intrusions in the Spratlys? Understandably, their damning silence prompted Secretary Carandang to ask that very timely and relevant question,” he quipped.

“Why are they calling on Congress to investigate? Are they entertaining serious doubts on President Aquino III’s decision and moves? But their actions are too obvious because these are designed to spike any eventual involvement of the US forces that these groups are incorrigibly against since time immemorial. Also, a Congressional Inquiry would just be a pat on the Chinese’ back and tantamount to showboating,” Rep. Alcover retorted.

“As legislatures, Casiño and Colmenares must not forget that the existing Mutual Defense Treaty, between the governments of the Philippines and the United States of America, compels the American government to support any action that the Philippines shall find necessary to protect our country’s territorial sovereignty and integrity. Also, they are duty bound to support the moves of the Philippine government to reach a diplomatic resolution of the issue,” Rep. Alcover explained.

“They (Bayan Muna and Pamalakaya) just wanted Congress to make a statement on the issue with them hiding behind the skirt of the country’s legislature. Why can’t they make a formal statement denouncing the Chinese forces’ illegal intrusions into areas claimed by the country in the West Philippine Sea?” said Rep. Alcover.

The ANAD solon challenged the Maoist communist sectoral front and pseudo partylist groups to issue a strong statement condemning the Chinese government’s aggressive and blatant display of force in the Spratlys. “Instead of doing a zarzuela, they should come out into the open and conduct mass actions in the streets to protest and demand China’s full compliance to international covenants like the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and other related agreements, particularly on the imposition of a status quo with other claimants of the area,” he explained.
