Sa kolum niyang “Who is exploiting the ‘lumad’?” sa Philippine Daily Inquirer nitong 19 Setyembre, ipinagtanggol ni Prop. Solita “Mareng Winnie” Monsod ang militar laban sa malaganap at patuloy pang lumalaganap na pagkondena rito dahil sa pagpatay, at pagmasaker pa nga, sa mga Lumad sa Mindanao.

Sa maraming taon, pinatatag ng midyang pag-aari ng malalaking kapitalista ang imahe ni Monsod, propesor ng ekonomiks at komentarista sa dyaryo at telebisyon, bilang tinig ng makatwirang opinyon.

Pero sa kolum niyang ito tungkol sa maramihang pagpatay sa mga Lumad, malinaw na hindi katotohanan ang hangad niya, kundi ang pagbaluktot at pagtatago nito. Hindi ang pagtigil sa pagpatay sa mga Lumad, kundi ang pananaig sa publiko ng paliwanag ng militar sa naturang mga pagpatay.

  • China considers its response to Donald Trump’s proposed tariffs June 21, 2018
