A few days ago, it was reported that President Rodrigo Duterte will be declaring the New People's Army (NPA) as terrorists in an attempt to eliminate the left-leaning groups in the country.

According to reports, aside from the NPA, the left-leaning group Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (BAYAN) will also be eliminated by Duterte for conspiracy with communist movement.
“Now it’s a great conspiracy between itong mga BAYAN, pati ano… We will study and maybe, we will have a crackdown here somewhere. Nagsasawa na ako dito sa kalokohan nila,”
BAYAN's leaders are Teddy CasiƱo, Satur Ocampo, Liza Maza, and Renato Reyes.

During the ASEAN Summit in Manila, BAYAN conducted a mass protest against the president that resulted to injuries on both sides.

This is following Duterte's proclamation that he is getting tired of the way the NPA is handling what they are fighting for.
“I am tired of seeing properties destructed, equipment burned, and the killing of innocent people, and there’s even a four-month old (baby) involved,”
 “I’ll be issuing a proclamation. I’ll remove them from the category of a legal entity or at least a semi-movement which would merit our attention, placing them pareho sa amerika, terrorist,”
Meanwhile, BAYAN through Renato Reyes, said their piece. He said that the problems can be fixed through peace talks.
 “All the issues Duterte against the NPA are best addressed through the peace talks. He knows who he needs to talk to,” 
As a reply to Duterte's plan to crackdown BAYAN, Renato said that history was repeating itself.
“Duterte’s threat of a crackdown is intended to eliminate the most effective resistance to fascist dictatorship, human rights abuses, anti-people economic impositions and increased US intervention. Indeed we have seen this scenario before in our history,”
 “If that happens, it will be 1972 all over again. The people however will resist such a plan. Never again,”
