Philippines: Reds warn of US plot vs Duterte
By Jocelyn R. Uy

Sept. 24: Two communist rebel leaders yesterday warned that a plot to oust President Duterte by elements of the US  government, the military and moneyed groups in the country could derail the success of the peace talks.

Speaking at a forum on the peace talks, Benito and Wilma Tiamzon warned that while the progress of the peace talks with the government under the Duterte administration looked bright, there was a need for vigilance against these  “powerful forces” that might put up heavy resistance to it.

The Tiamzons, designated consultants of the National Democratic Front (NDF), the political arm of the Communist Party of the Philippines, which is engaged in the peace talks with the government, said the second round of peace negotiations in Oslo, Norway, next month will take up more crucial and challenging issues.

Suitcase Side Table | By Wilma

My family is going on a Op-Shop-Hop this weekend (we are a very odd family!) so I will be keeping an eye out for a ton of bits and pieces to makeover. I will now also be keeping an eye out for some suitcases because I love this little DIY - because you not only have a cute vintage sidetable, but a great place to keep your phone books, address books, and other telephone bits and pieces!
