LORENZANA: RED OCTOBER IS DEAD

digong dilaw

Red October”, or the plot to oust the government, has fizzled out, Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana told reporters Friday.

“Lusaw na (It has already been dissolved),” Lorenzana said when asked on whether “Red October”, which is reportedly scheduled to start on Oct. 17, is still an ongoing threat.

He attributed the death of the ouster plot to the public airing by the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) of the destabilization movement.

The plot is to coincide with the international celebration of Marxism and the Indigenous Peoples’ month, with participants allegedly coming from a grand coalition and a broad united front.

The defense chief added that the plotters have “scampered away” when the threat was made public.

“Eh nung ilabas ng AFP sila nagpulasan na, kaya hindi na matutuloy (When the report was made public, the plotters fled),” he added.

With the demise of the “Red October” threat, Lorenzana said what the public needs to prepare for is “White Christmas”, as the Yuletide Season is fast approaching. (PNA)
