The proliferation and use of illegal drugs disrespect life and the campaign against the drug trade must be relentlessly pursued by government as it puts the lives of people and the future of the nation at stake. We, therefore, laud and support the Duterte administration on its effort to rid our country of this social scourge.

In our desire to be true to our calling, we emphatically declare our resolve to support the resumption of peace negotiations between the government and the CPP-NPA-NDFP. Resumption of peace talks is necessary to conjointly arrive at an agreement that addresses the root causes of conflicts. There may be hurdles or complications along the way, but that is precisely the reasons why peace negotiation is necessary.
As incumbent Bishops of UCCP, we deplore in the strongest possible terms all these acts of harassment committed against our church people and against peace advocates and human rights defenders. In keeping with the call of His Excellency President Rodrigo R. Duterte for change, all these abhorrent acts of persecution MUST STOP NOW!
