The New People’s Army confirms that a squad of Red fighters was raided by troops of the 26th IB-CAFGU in Km. 35, Brgy. Mahagsay, San Luis, Agusan del Sur in August 15, 2014, around 12:00 NN. We, however, condemn the fascist troops’ indiscriminate firing which resulted in the deaths of two civilians.

The NPA squad was temporarily stationed in a hut at the time while helping some peasants harvest their corn. The area is isolated and is more than two kilometers away from the sitio center. NPA medics were also giving medical check-ups to some residents in the area.

Wage all-out resistance against Aquino's chacha and term extension scheme

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) urgently calls on the Filipino people to meet the Aquino clique's moves to extend its stay in power through Marcos-style measures.

The Aquino clique is targeting the amendment of the 1987 constitution (cha-cha) in order to clip the Supreme Court's power to stop Aquino from doing as he pleases. Like Marcos, Aquino wants the other branches of the reactionary government to become his rubberstamps and mere facades to conceal his dictatorial conduct.

The National Democratic Front of the Philippines-Eastern Visayas condoles with the family and friends of our dear Nila “Comrade Edna” Montes, who died of illness last August 15, 2014 while under the custody of the Government of the Philippines (GPH).  She served the people for more than 30 years as a proletarian revolutionary cadre of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and the New People's Army (NPA), and had last served as the deputy secretary for education of the Party' s Southeast Samar Committee. Although she was diagnosed and being treated for a serious illness since 2012, she never wavered in her love for the people and in her determination to carry out her revolutionary tasks.

Translation: Palparan arrest amid widespread Palparan-style human rights violations--CPP

Sinabi ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas (PKP) ngayon araw na ang labis na naantalang pagkakaaresto kay dating Philippine Army general Jovito Palaran kaninang umaga ay isinagawa ng mga ahente ng gubyernong Aquino sa gitna ng nagpapatuloy at malawakang pang-aabuso ng militar at pulisya at malalalang paglabag sa karapatang-tao, laluna laban sa masang magsasaka at mga pambansang minorya.

"Malaon nang naggigiit ng katarungan ang libu-libong biktima ng kampanyang teror ni General Palparan sa mga krimen at pang-aabusong isinagawa ng mga pasistang tropa ng AFP na kanyang pinamunuan," anang PKP.

Confront Aquino chacha, second term with intense resistance--CPP

Information Bureau
Communist Party of the Philippines
August 14, 2014

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today called on the Filipino people to confront "with intense resistance" moves to amend the 1987 constitution in order to set the stage for a second term or a term extension for Aquino and other perfidious measures that serve the interests of foreign big capitalists and the ruling clique. In an interview aired last night, Benigno Aquino III outrightly endorsed charter change (chacha) and said he "has to listen" to proposals for him to seek another term in office.

The CPP said Aquino's interview last night saw him "openly endorsing authoritarianism" when he justified the proposal to amend the 1987 constitution in order to clip the powers of the Supreme Court to prevent it from curtailing the self-claimed powers to realign public funds according to his priorities. "This was an open statement of his ambition to bring back the Marcos-style rule where so-called democratic institutions served as mere facades to his dictatorship."

Idineklara ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas (PKP) na walang hinihiling na pagpapalawig ng termino ni Aquino ang masang anakapwis ng mga magsasaka, manggagawa, sa maralitang tagalunsod ng mga mala-manggagawa at mga karaniwang naghahanapbuhay, maging sa hanay ng mga estudyante at kabataan.

"Sa harap ng pagtaas ng presyo ng pagkain at batayang pangangailangan, ng pumapaimbulog na gastos sa pasahe, kalusugan, edukasyon at iba pang serbisyo at ng mabilis na paglala ng kalagayan sa pamumuhay sa kanayunan at sa hanay ng maralitang lunsod, ang sigaw ng abang sambayanang Pilipino ay hindi ang ekstensyon ng termino ni Aquino bagkus ay ang kagyat na tunay na pagbabago sa kanilang araw-araw sa buhay at ng pag-unlad ng kanilang kalagayang panlipunan," anang PKP.

Two Philippine Army troops were killed while another six were wounded in two harassment operations launched by the New People’s Army under the Western Agusan Norte-Agusan Sur Sub-regional Command in August 9 and 10, 2014 in San Luis, Agusandel Sur and Buenavista, Agusan del Norte.

In August 9, around 12:00 NN, Red fighters harassed operating troops of the 29th IB in SitioAfga, Brgy. Olave, Buenavista, Agusandel Norte. The 29th IB admitted that a certain PFC Cortejos was killed, exactly corresponding to the report of the NPA operating unit. But the 29th IB kept silent about their two wounded. It is not true that a Red fighter was killed in the incident. Not one among the NPA team was even wounded.

Ilantad ang kamay ng rehimeng Aquino sa karahasan, inhustisya at kawalan ng kapayapaan sa bansa

Hulyo 3, 2014

Mariing kinukundena ng National Democratic Front-Southern Tagalog (NDF-ST) ang hakbangin ng reaksyunaryong gubyerno na iluklok si Aquino bilang imahe na tagapamandila ng kapayapaan upang makamit ang nominasyon sa Nobel Peace Prize. Isang malaking kabalintunaan na asamin ng pangkating Aquino ang titulo habang nilalapastangan ng rehimeng Aquino ang demokrasya at karapatang pantao sa Pilipinas.

Pilit mang magtago ang rehimeng Aquino sa maskara ng demokrasya, hindi nito maikukubli ang pasistang mukha. Pilit mang maghugas-kamay ng rehimeng Aquino, hindi nito mahuhugasan ang dugo ng mamamayang biniktima ng karahasan ng estado.

26th IB suffers two casualties in San Luis, Agusandel Sur

Translation: 26th IB, Napatyan og Duha ka Sundalo sa San Luis, Agusan del Sur

A harassment team of the New People's Army under the Western Agusan Norte-Agusan Sur Sub-regional Command attacked operating troops of the 26th IB-PA and Bagani Force in Km. 50, Brgy. Binicalan, San Luis, Agusandel Sur, in August 9, 2014, around 4:30 PM. Two were killed and several others were wounded among the reactionary forces while the NPA attacking unit suffered no casualties.

The said troops were then carelessly and noisily resting, confident that their massive operations have scared away the NPA units in the area. They were completely unaware that harassment teams were also sent by the NPA, who were more familiar with the terrain and enjoy the deep and wide support from the people in the area. When the Red fighters shot the huddled enemy troops, two were killed while an undetermined number were wounded. The NPA harassment team swiftly withdrew after the incident.
