Aug 31 on Rock Ed Radio>> Still About Peace


Let's talk to Robert Francis Garcia, author of "To Suffer Thy Comrades."Former NPA guerilla, Bobby Garcia published this gripping narrative of his journey as a young man in the CPP-NPA movement.


Today he is an educator, a writer, and a long-haired yogurt maker. (No, he is not the gay director of Cinderella, the musical. Iba yon.)


We really can't describe the book nor the author here, we're afraid we won't do it (nor him) justice. But we certainly hope that the proper authorities will give him, literally, that.(just google)

Question: What is your rebellion about?Post, share and tune in on Sunday @8pm. NU107.5 FM.

we may always choose to rebel against what is happening nowadays. It is always better to fight what we thing is wrong and fight for what is right. If we are talking about rebellion, e.g. with what is happening now in Mindanao where the MILF allegedly (I don't want to be proven wrong that the MILF had been framed all along) gone trigger happy on the civilians, that is utterly wrong, however we may say it. For me, I would love to see our country giving peace a chance, giving everyone equal participation in everything esp. in governance (we are a democracy, right?), and equal rights esp. in expression without being threatened (again i'd like to stress that we are a democratic country but we are now a dangerous country for journalists).

QUESTION FOR MR GARCIA: Would you advice college students of today to still actively explore the underground movement? What age do you think we should start considering joining, if ever, the movement?


Is 21 too young, too old? Is 19 too young? Is 30 too old? When is a good age to consider going underground to make it a valid decision and not as a malleable mind being poisoned by the older (demagogues) ones?

May NPA pa ba hanggang ngayon?! Malakas pa rin ba sila? Anong itchura ni Mr Garcia? Mukhang berdugo?

is it true na prente daw ng NPA yung mga mass organizations?

girl abunda said...

Marami ka bang peklat dahil sa NPA experience mo?

Litong Pinoy... said...

Ano pong masasabi ninyo sa mga tao sa gobyerno na dating nakikilahok o sumusuporta sa CPP-NPA movement?

How much are they considered as "failures" by the movement?

Salamat po!!! :)

OH NO!!!! bakit naputol????

zea said...

May girl din kayong kasama?

boysaksak said...

What kind of torture tactics did they do to you, sir?

rayzelle said...

Sorry, pero kelan po ito nangyari?

jeffrey of davao said...

How active po ba ang NPA sa Davao Oriental? If you have any idea, sir?

wes said...

Ano ba talaga ang ipinaglalaban ng CPP-NPA? Minsan kasi magkakaiba ang idealism ng mga miyembro nyo.

julie said...

Ano po ba ang dahilan o nagtulak kay Mr. Garcia para sumali sya sa kilusan?

kenneth said...

Ano po kaya ang pinagkaiba ng Marxismo, Lenninismo at kay Mao? Ano po ang pinaka ideolohiya ng CPP-NPA? HUKBALAHAP po ang pinagmulang ng CPP hindi ba?

ryan only said...

Question for Mr. Garcia: may nalatagan po ba kayo bng "program" sa "digmaang rosas" sa U.G.?

jen of laguna said...

Ano po yung balak gawing system of government ng NPA in case ma-take over nila yung governance?

Anonymous said...

Maraming klase po ba ng NPA? It's like a suicide din po ba?

diane said...

Sir, do you now consider yourself a disappointed idealist? Ba't po kayo ex-NPA na ang tawag nyo sa sarili nyo> Ba't po kayo tumiwalag sa kilusan?

wes said...

Kung isa ang idealism ng CPP-NPA bakit kayo nagka conflict? Baka naman sariling interes lang ang ipinaglalaban nyo.

ryan only said...

Para po sa isa sa mga nakaranas ng torture/purging..ano po yung opinion nyo sa "rectification" ng kilusan?

android said...

Good evening - please ask your guest why he joined CPP-NPA and why he left.

jen said...

How many of you survived the torture?

leyo said...

Kwento po sakin ng nanay ko nung bata pa daw sya sa probinsya, may nakikikain, nakikituloy sa kanila na NPA. Mabait naman daw..share ko lang.

leyo said...

Ano pong ginagawa nyo sa bundok? Ba't sa bundok?

spidey said...

Kailangan ba sa bundok yung hide-out nyo? lahat ba ng bundok may NPA?

diane said...

When I think about it, it geels like joining a fraternit/sorority. Hmm..so meaning po, the beatings and the humiliations are some sort of initiation for one to be accepted? Ganun po ba?

jeffrey fr davao said...

Sa tingin po ninyuo, may pag-asa po ba na isusuko ng NDF ang kanilang ipinaglalaban? Failure po ba talaga ang pangkasalukuyang sistemang politika ng ating bansa at kailangan i-take over?

Anonymous said...

Anong edad yung pinakabata na kasama sa inyo dati?

wes said...

Bakit naman kayo dinetain?

boysaksak said...

After all the pain they inflicted on you, sir, do you still believe sa kung anong ipinaglalaban ng kilusan?

Anonymous said...

May alliance po ba presently ang NDF at MILF?

leyo said...
