Veteran activist on ‘idiot red-taggers’

Dr. Carol P. Araullo, chairperson emirata of Bagong Alyansang Makabayan, filed a ₱2.15 million damage suit against known red-taggers Lorraine Badoy and Jeffrey Celiz earlier this week.

“I do not want to play to their red-tagging schemes. I am not going to let idiots dictate what I am going to do,” Araullo said.

Araullo added she hopes to send a clear message that baseless allegations and attempts to silence voices of dissent will not be tolerated. #
