Joint groups of the League of Parents of the Philippines (LPP), the Liga Indipendencia Filipinas, MELCHORA, Duterte Youth and the Youth Power Against Destabilization and Terrorism hold an indignation rally anew Thursday (10 June 2021) in front of the Dutch Embassy in Makati City, Metro Manila.
The anti-communist group believes the Embassy of the Netherlands in the Philippines “already has their bias” on their call to help bring Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founder Jose Maria Sison back home.
In an interview recently, Liga Filipinas Independencia spokesperson Nolan Tiongco expressed dismay over the move of the Dutch embassy to ignore their protests outside its building in Makati City.
Tiongco suspects the Dutch Embassy “are sympathizers of Joma Sison, that’s why they are responding coldly to us,” he said.
It may be recalled that in their message to the Dutch embassy last Nov. 12, 2020, the Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands only acknowledged receipt of their email even as it told them that it ”does not wish to comment to the press on the series of protests held in front of its office” he said.
