The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) joins the Filipino and Moro people in denouncing the all-out military offensives being carried out by the Aquino regime in Maguindanao that have resulted in the displacement of close to 30,000 people from the Bangsamoro areas.

The CPP denounced the AFP for carrying out aerial bombings and using mortars and cannons which are fired at the direction of civilian communities and farms, endangering the lives of people, damaging their crops, forcing them to evacuate and traumatizing residents, especially children and the elderly.

Intensified Fascist Reprisals and Restrictions Against Peace Consultants and Political Detainees

27 February 2015

We, National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) peace consultants and other political prisoners detained here at the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology -- Special Intensive Care Area 1 Jail (BJMP-SICA1) Jail in Camp Bagong Diwa, protest the intensifying fascist reprisals and restrictions being inflicted against us by BJMP-SICA1 Jail authorities.

Such fascist reprisals and restrictions qualitatively started to intensify when we waged a 10-day fasting and hunger strike, five days before and five days during the visit of Pope Francis I to our country. We waged such acts of self-sacrifice to amplify our calls for our freedom, for justice, for real solutions to social ills, for serious efforts towards peace in our country.

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) calls on the Filipino people to oppose so-called training programs being conducted by US special forces for local police forces after recent revelations point to the direct role played by the US military in the instigation, planning and conduct of the bloody Mamasapano operation last January 25.

The CPP issued this statement amid another round of training programs being conducted since yesterday by US Marines with the 6th Special Action Battalion of the Philippine National Police-Special Action Force (PNP-SAF) in Sagay City, Negros Occidental.

NDFP-NEMR to release POWs on February 26

Ka Maria Malaya
26 February 2015

The National Democratic Front of the Philippines in North Eastern Mindanao Region (NDFP-NEMR) confirms the release on 26 February 2015 of the three (3) Prisoners of War (POW), namely PO1 JORIE M.  AMPER, PO3 DEMOCRITO B. POLVOROSA, and PO1 MARICHEL U. CONTEMPLO, who are all currently in the custody of the New People’s Army’s Front Operational Command 16. The NDFP decided to forego the normal process of preliminary investigation and possible trial.

The release of the three POWs have been deferred thrice, first in November in time for the Pope’s visit in the Philippines, the second during the Christmas holidays and the third on the middle of January. The reason for the suspensions was the refusal of the Armed Forces of the Philippines to temporarily withdraw their troops in the target release area. The halfhearted efforts of the government’s Provincial Crisis Committee lead by Surigao Norte Gov. Sol Matugas failed to give any assurance for the safe release of the POWs.

Warm greetings!

The recent turn of events challenges you to make a stand.

The near-annihilation of the 84th PNP-SAF troops in Maguindanao shows the division and dissension of your ranks in the AFP and PNP. This is how it happened: under US orders for the capture of an alleged terrorist under the framework of its “war on terror”, your commander-in-chief, Benigno Aquino III, violated your chain of command and all due processes, through a faction of generals led by General Purisima. Despite the ongoing ceasefire and peace negotiations between the government of the Philippines and MILF, Aquino ran over all agreements to implement the US orders. Now, he and his officials exhaust all efforts to wash their hands of culpability after wasting the lives of 44 SAF personnel.

This incident clearly indicates the ineptness of your commander-in-chief in mobilizing your forces. He only complies with the dictates of his imperialist master and his local instigators. Now it has resulted in endless bickering and finger-pointing among military and civilian officials, and has undermined the morale of the whole organization of AFP and PNP.

Open letter to patriotic soldiers and policemen

Patriotic officers and men,

The death of 44 PNP-SAF troops in Maguindanao is an unfortunate incident. We sympathize with the families of those killed in this worthless “counterterrorist operation” which wasted the lives of ordinary policemen. Benigno Aquino III has clearly taken orders from his US imperialist master whose “global war on terror” he fully supports.

Adding insult to injury, military and civilian officials of the Aquino government seek to put all the blame on a few generals and to discredit the MILF. They are now preoccupied in their effort to shield Aquino from his culpability.

NPA-NCMR launches six military actions in January

Ka Allan Juanito
30 January 2015

Troops of the 4th Infantry Division suffered at least 11 casualties in six different offensive actions launched by the New People’s Army in North Central Mindanao Region in the first month of 2015. At least six were killed and five were wounded among AFP and paramilitary forces, counting among the casualties a military asset, while NPA suffered no casualties.

Despite the 4th ID’s insistence that it strictly abides by the SOMO order of their puppet president, their military operations in the countryside continue unhampered. The masses have had no respite from the AFP’s terrorism even during the traditional holidays and the visit of the Catholic Pope.

Hinikayat ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas (PKP) ang sambayanang Pilipino na batikusin ang patakaran ng paglilihim na ginagawa ng Senado kaugnay sa pagkasangkot ng US sa operasyon sa Mamasapano.

Sa huling araw ng pampublikong pagdinig kahapon sa Senado, nabulgar sa testimonya ni PNP Dir. Getulio Napeñas ang malaking bahaging ginampanan ng militar ng US sa pangunguna, pagsasanay, pagbibigay ng mga kagamitan at pagsasagawa ng operasyon ng pulisya upang patayin si Zulkifli Bin Hir (Marwan) sa Mamasapano. Ang militar ng US ang nagbigay ng "pakete ng paniktik" hinggil kay Marwan, ani Napeñas.
