RED TAGGING: Hands off NUJP-Cagayan de Oro member Cong Corrales and family
February 22, 2019
The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines deplores the inclusion of our member and former director Cong Corrales, his wife and son in an anonymous list naming alleged members of the Communist Party of the Philippines in Cagayan de Oro.
The list also includes religious, lawyers and groups working for human rights and the welfare of the lumad.
There is nothing more cowardly and deplorable than to vilify persons and put them in mortal peril behind the cloak of anonymity.
And as has happened all too often, Red tagging is not mere intimidation. All too often it can be a virtual death sentence.
Even media have not been spared from Red-tagging and other acts clearly intended to intimidaye a critical press into silence, as with the ongoing vilification campaign against the NUJP and the cyberattacks on alternative media.
