THE National Book Development Board (NBDB) along with Filipino writers and academics condemned the recent vandalism and red-tagging of two independent bookstores in Metro Manila.

Earlier this week, the storefronts of Popular Bookstore in Tomas Morato, Quezon City and Solidaridad Bookshop in Padre Faura, Manila were defaced with anti-communist graffiti, accusing them of being a front of the New People's Army, the military arm of the Communist Party of the Philippines.
