CPP-NPA bloody purge looms - NSA

National Security adviser Norberto Gonzales yesterday warned of another wave of killings in the country arising from a possible purge or internal war in the ranks of communist rebels whose top leaders appear to be headed for a major split.
Gonzales said the split was apparently triggered by the reported assumption of Wilma Tiamzon as the new chair of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founded by self-exiled chairman Jose Ma. Sison.
Sison has been living in the Netherlands along with other communist leaders since the late 1980s.
The looming split could trigger a purge and internal war that could be far bloodier than what happened in the 1980s where thousands of suspected government spies within the CPP and the New People’s Army (NPA) were tortured and killed, he said.
Gonzales said Tiamzon and her followers are pushing for a purely armed struggle to establish a communist regime in the country, while other CPP and NPA leaders, as well as party list lawmakers who are suspected to be members of the CPP Central Committee, want to continue the parliamentary struggle to complement the military campaign.
He said the differences have triggered a major debate within the mainstream communist movement that is getting more intense.
Gonzales said Tiamzon and her followers see the insistence of the leftist lawmakers to maintain their presence in government as “cowardice” and that “they can no longer take the hardship inherent in armed struggle so they want to continue the good life in the cities.”
“The worrisome part here is that more and more (communist rebels) are leaning towards the domestic leadership (over the self-exiled leaders) and the ascendant leadership here is Tiamzon’s, that’s why we are predicting far more violence,” he said.
Gonzales said the last time there was a debate in the communist movement, a spate of killings and purges followed.
