Angel Locsin broke into tears as she talked about the possibility of people she will help being red-tagged too!




Angel Locsin is setting the record straight, vehemently denying the red-tagging allegations that she and her family are part of any communist or terrorist group. “To set the record straight, hindi po ako parte ng (I am not a part of) NPA or any terrorist group. Neither my sister nor my kuya Neri (Colmenares) is a part of the NPA or any terrorist group,” she said on an Instagram post.


This comes after the reckless and dangerous remarks of a high-ranking Army official accusing them of being leftist which the actress could not keep mum about as it threatens not only her safety, but also her family.

On a recent interview with Teleradyo, the distraught actress philanthropist broke into tears fearing that the people she will help will also be accused of red-tagging. “Parang itong parating na bagyo, di mo alam kung lalabas ka ngayon para tumulong. Ewan ko, baka iyong puntahan ko baka ma-red tag kami, baka madamay.”




This ‘terrorist claim’ revived photos of the actress’ 2009 visit to a school for Lumad youth called Alternative Learning Center for Agricultural and Livelihood Development Inc. (ALCADEV) that some of her attackers use as a false ‘evidence’ for recruiting students to become members of the communist New People’s Army.


ALCADEV was established in 2004 as an alternative learning system for indigenous youth, providing them academic studies, and vocational and technical skills. These are the youth often not reached by government services, called Kabataang Lumad, who on Facebook stood with the Angel Locsin, slamming the baseless red-tagging with a fiery statement that went:

"Mahigpit na sumusuporta ang mga kabataang Lumad kay Angel Locsin at sa iba pang mga artista na target ng red tagging ng spokesperson ng NTF-ELCAC na si Antonio Parlade.


Si angel ay mahigpit na supporter ng save our schools network. Sa gitna ng kanyang kasikatan ay hindi niya kinalimutang lumubog sa mga batayang sektor na naging biktima ng pandarahas ng gobyerno. Noong 2009 ay bumisita siya sa ALCADEV, isang paaralang Lumad sa Surigao del Sur upang makipamuhay sa mga kabataang Lumad. At simula noon ay binitbit niya na ang aming kampanya at patuloy na tumutulong sa maraming paaraan para mapagpatuloy kami sa aming pakikibaka.

Mariing kinokondena namin ang red tagging dahil ito rin ay sinundan ng maraming pamamaslang, pagpapasara ng mga paaralang Lumad, pag sampa ng mga gawa gawang kaso, pag aresto at pag bakwit ng mga kabataang lumad mula sa aming komunidad.

Mahigpit naming ginigiit na hindi terorismo ang pagtindig sa karapatan pantao at ang pag laban para sa interes ng mga inaapi. Hindi terorismo ang matuto para sa kinabukasan ng mga susunod na henerasyon. Hindi terorismo na ipaglaban ang karapatan sa edukasyon at lupang ninuno.

“Maraming salamat sa lahat ng hindi naniniwala. Hindi marahas na nagbibintang. Thank you so much. Wala akong masamang hangarin, hidden agenda. Nandito ako walang itinatago... Tulungan nyo na lang po ako kung kayang iclear ang pangalan namin, kami nina ate,” she also said on the interview thanking her supporters for standing up for her.
