The Kabataang Makabayan National Office conveys its solidarity with all patriotic youth and masses in demanding justice for Irix Romero’s abduction and gross violation of rights by the fascist AFP.

Irix Romero is a member of STAND BulSU and SCMP BulSU. She decided to temporarily leave home to be able to more diligently execute her functions as a full-time youth organizer. Briefly returning to her home in Bulacan, she was met by state fascism in the form of one of her relatives in the military.

Since then, Irix was stripped of all forms of communication with others and was subsequently forced into a “counseling” session by military officials in an army camp.

KM expresses its condemnation of these terrorist actions by the fabricator, trigger-happy, murderous AFP. Not only did the goons-in-uniform display utter disregard for the rights of a civilian, they took advantage of a family issue and turned it into propaganda to justify state terrorism.

These are the circumstances willed into reality by the regime’s incessant red-tagging of critics, activists, and organizers.

The events that befell Irix happen in every city, community, or province where the rabid dogs AFP are. Wherever militancy thrives, the AFP swarms to wreak havoc and fear.

The Duterte fascist regime is desperately mobilizing its entire force to attempt to suppress the people’s resistance and growing unrest. Unsurprisingly, they fail to recognize how the masses grow ever more militant with every terror tactic they carry out.

The people are more infuriated and agitated than ever. The regime is scared to see what comes next.
