FALSE

CLAIM: A Twitter account using the name of the still-to-be launched Angat Buhay organization claimed that Vice President Leni Robredo has a surprise involving communists on the inauguration of president-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr.

RATING: The claims of the Twitter account are false.

Facts

Robredo has repeatedly denied having supposed links to the communist party.

In April, she stressed that she does not form alliances with anyone using force to further their agenda amid red-tagging claims.

Robredo also previously denied claims that CPP founder Jose Maria Sison was her advisor. Sison himself also debunked this, saying he has “not been consulting with Barry Gutierrez,” Robredo’s spokesperson.

The vice president released a lengthier statement about the repeated red-tagging last March. Part of it reads:

”Yung mga talagang kilala ako, alam na hindi ako naniniwala sa dahas para solusyonan ang anumang problema. Alam na tutol ako sa sinumang pumupulot ng armas para maggiit ng sariling agenda.”

“Hindi ako makikipag-alyansa sa mga ganun or sa mga naniniwala dun. Priority ko ang magtrabaho sa mapayapang paraan para sa dignidad ng bawat tao, ang empowered and responsible exercise of freedoms, at ang fairness.” 

“Alam ‘yan ng lahat ng katrabaho ko, kasama na ang mga nasa uniformed services, na mukhang sila ang tinatarget ng mga ganitong disinformation at propaganda.” 

Robredo, moreover, has made no public remarks yet about Marcos’ inauguration.
