2019 March 26 Tuesday

Dear Members of the UC Berkeley Search Committee for the Department of South and Southeast Asian Studies,

It has come to our attention that Dr. Lisandro Claudio may be under consideration for a position at U.C. Berkeley. Such a prospect causes us great concern since Dr. Claudio is on record as naming or outing individuals, including students at his previous campus Ateneo de Manila University (1), on the basis of their leftwing perspectives or affiliations in a political climate (2) in the Philippines that makes such conduct highly dangerous for those singled out in this way.

Given the current repressive political climate (3) we experience in the Philippines, abetted by a regime of fear produced from the well-documented state-sponsored extrajudicial killings (4), such public outing has lethal consequences. Trade unionists (5), civil society activists (6), and student leaders (7) have been surveilled by state agents, imprisoned, disappeared or killed as a result of such accusations. Even short of its potentially lethal consequences in the Philippines, such singling out of students’ political opinions and affiliations inevitably produces a hostile learning environment. The polarizing effects of red-tagging, in which Dr. Claudio willfully and proudly engages, can be poisonous for an academic community.

In general, scholars and activists in the Philippines recognize the danger of red-tagging students given the complicated nuances of activism in a country that has long endured military governments, propped up by U.S. Cold War policy, that use anti-Communism as a whip against dissent. Dr. Claudio has been one of the astonishingly reckless voices in the academe who unambiguously tags organizations, leaders, students, and ordinary activists despite the peril of such tagging. We understand his political views align with his red-baiting; but it is his recklessness that concerns us. In what seems like pure McCarthyism (8), Dr. Claudio has said about his tagging of students whose political affiliation with communism is ambiguous: “These things are kind of open secrets and in a democracy, we won’t prosper if we speak in euphemisms.” According to Dr. Claudio, “Democracy prospers through transparent language because it’s the kind of language that allows people to know what they’re getting into.”

At the same time, the current regime’s salvaging (9) of red-tagged activists has climbed to 222 political deaths as of December 2018, with at least 85,000 cases of threat, harassment and intimidation, 111 incidents of torture, and more than 2,000 incidents of illegal arrests.

This dire situation for political activists against Duterte’s regime is not quite the democracy we desire.

Dr. Claudio’s public voice against activists (10), at times also surprisingly juvenile, even Dutertean, such as calling communists “morons” (11), in effect becomes consonant with the regime’s fascism (12): he ends up echoing President Duterte, and even reposted by Duterte supporters. Though this may not be the intent, nor the most toxic aspect of his acts, the effect is truly a matter of concern (13).

Our concern with Dr. Claudio lies with heedless conduct that endangers colleagues and students whose academic freedom and freedom of expression we are as scholars, writers, artists and teachers bound to defend. To give his voice a platform in a university such as yours amplifies that danger: your university’s prestige would give weight to language that can limit and endangers legitimate activism and protest in an already dire Philippines. We are aware that our plight might not be viscerally relevant to you, but we know the danger of Dr. Claudio’s carelessness. In the U.S. such carelessness might lead only to a Twitter-fight, which in the academic world can be problem enough. But in the Philippines, red-tagging can lead to death. As scholars, teachers, writers, artists and activists in and from the Philippines, we continue to fight both the Duterte government and heedless voices like Dr. Claudio’s that, wittingly or not, aid state oppression.

We urge the committee to review Dr. Claudio’s record carefully before proceeding further with consideration of his candidacy. We look forward to hearing your response.
