Bobby Tiglao is a UP alumnus who laments the fact that students up till now still continue to be lured by the communist ideology that has long lost its mystique. Bobby joined the communist movement as a young idealistic student. Like the famed military defector, Victor Corpuz, he saw first-hand the inner workings of the party, and has since voiced his strong disapproval for the CPP-NPA-NDF. Here, he expresses concern over the CPP’s continued efforts to control student views at the premiere university of the land.
Calling a spade a spade. No less than their former comrades have come out to denounce the Kamatayan Bloc as CPP/NPA/NDF front organizations.
The communist movement’s propaganda machinery aims to provide replacements to an already aging cadre, young idealist students who tragically have very little training and are sacrificed later in firefights with the Army.

The extensive military training I got from my previous life has helped me adjust to the restrictions and rules imposed without so much of a hoot. All I have to do is think of the 1-year of plebe training in the Academy and the month-long ‘confinement-to-quarters’ suddenly looks bite-size. I think of the Ranger training in Tanay, and the sparse rations and supplies look puny. I remember the taps and reveille bugle calls, and the curfew restrictions seem right out of the ordinary.
Remembering the Mamasapano. Let us not forget, and let us learn the lessons from the Mamasapano Massacre.
