LFS condemns red-tagging
BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

 

The League of Filipino Students-Bacolod chapter and selected members of the Bacolod Youth Alliance have condemned strongly the Red-tagging posts in the official Facebook pages of the 303rd Infantry Brigade.

LFS-Bacolod, in a statement released July 31 on Facebook, claimed that 303rd Infantry Brigade posted a collage of photos taken during the SONAgKAISA on July 27 at the Bacolod Public Plaza.

The activity was attended by various progressive groups, calling for the junking of the Anti-Terrorism Law and a more comprehensive government approach to the COVID-19 pandemic, among other concerns.

The photos, which bear the League of Filipino Students logo, were originally published by LFS- Bacolod on their Facebook page, it said. In the photos, the statement said that 12 people are clearly visible, 9 of whom are members of the LFS-Bacolod and 3 are members of the Bacolod Youth Alliance, a local coalition of youth activists.

LFS-Bacolod stressed the dangers of these posts in their statement saying, “Red-tagging puts the safety and security of the members under threat, and this has long been used by the mercenary state forces to rationalize further harassment and even outright killings.

“This is a chilling precedent to what is yet to come when the Anti-Terrorism Law is fully implemented,” the group said.*
