The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today dismissed as "annual year-end empty bragging" pronouncements made a few days ago by the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) that they have succeeded in "liberating" 23 provinces of New People's Army (NPA).

"The AFP has been known to make such claims, only to be slapped in the face after a few days by NPA offensives," said the CPP.

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today slammed Benigno Aquino "for setting the stage for an Arroyo pardon on the cheap."

While asserting that "it is too early" to discuss the pardon of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Aquino pointed out that she should, first of all, "express remorse". This most recent statement by Aquino is an apparent downgear-shift to slow down the factional strife among the rival camps of the ruling classes.

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today said the Filipino people should hold the Aquino regime responsible for criminal neglect over its failure to heed warnings as early as last year by several sectors that Cagayan de Oro was bound to suffer Ondoy-like floods. Such negligence resulted in the Aquino regime’s failure to put into place necessary preparations to prevent the loss of close to two thousand lives.

The recent environmental disaster in the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan, which took the lives of more than a thousand people and rendered tens of thousands homeless, carries a most important and urgent message for all of us: Logging and large scale mining is dangerous and destructive. It will bring landslides and floods and kill a lot of people and destroy their livelihood.

December 28, 2011

2012 is a year for the consolidation of the US-Aquino regime nationwide. The P31 million alloted by Aquino (P-Noy) for the RPA mean the escalation of abuses by this mercenary armed group against the people of Negros. Murders, robbery, illegal drugs will worsen as the RPA-ABB attacks the peasants, farm workers and other exploited sectors fighting for social change.

The Cordillera People’s Democratic Front expresses its deepest condolences to the family, friends, colleagues and kakailians of the late Atty. William “Billy” Claver who passed away last December 15.

An Igorot lawyer worthy of emulation, the courage and heroism of Atty. Claver was fully tested during the darkest years of martial law. He stood up together with a handful of fellow human rights lawyers then, alongside the oppressed people in opposing the US-Marcos dictatorship. As a civil libertarian, Claver took the path less taken and fraught with dangers where others dared not tread, taking up the cudgels of the victims of martial law.

Peace cannot be anywhere nearer in the minds of the US-Aquino regime when it announced a ceasefire this year. Peace is also not anywhere close to the mind of GPH Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte who tried to defend her earlier surrender calls to Ka Parago and Ka Oda of the New People’s Army as conciliatory and peacemaking. Stung when her surrender overture was called stupid, she rose to defence by calling the NPA’s response as rabid and vile, and then she went as far as to muddle peace by, again, portraying the NPA as peace haters.

Take advantage of the conflicts within the ruling classes

Editorial
Ang Bayan
December 21, 2011

The ruling system is currently being shaken by a political crisis wrought by a series of attacks and counter-attacks launched againt each other by rival reactionary cliques. The people and the revolutionary forces must take advantage of such disarray.

The latest maneuverings concern the impeachment of Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona by allies of Benigno Aquino III in Congress. Corona is a lackey of Gloria Arroyo who she appointed as Supreme Court chief justice just days before the end of her term as president. This was to ensure that she would have a defender within the highest court should she be prosecuted for her grave crimes against the people.

22 December 2011

The enormity of the damage to lives and property in Northern Mindanao as seen in the aftermath of tropical storm Sendong is a clear call for the people to take immediate and decisive action, especially in undertaking retrieval, relief and rehabilitation operations.

The death toll stands at over a thousand and is still rising, hundreds remain missing, thousands, especially those in the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan, and in the provinces of Misamis Oriental, Bukidnon, Lanao and part of Caraga, are displaced. The devastation wreaked upon property, infrastructure, and agriculture is estimated to reach billions of pesos. Aside from experiencing heavy shortage in safe shelter, food, and potable water, the psychological trauma and emotional stress afflicting the survivors of one of the worst disasters ever to hit Mindanao are becoming prevalent.

The Efren Martires Command of the New People's Army-Eastern Visayas said today that Red fighters harassed elements of the 78th IB last Dec. 11 between Brgy. Roxas and Brgy. Villa Aurora, Burauen Leyte. "The harassment action launched by the Mt. Amandewin Command is in support of the resistance against militarization by the residents of Brgy. Roxas and other villages," said EMC spokesperson Ka Karlos Manuel. "The people's grievances go to show that the so-called "peace and development" operations under Oplan Bayanihan merely brazenly cover up militarization in the countryside of Leyte. The Red fighters fired on operating troops of the 78th IB at 10:15 a.m. There were no casualties reported on either side, however."

Critical points of analysis on the worsening ruling class rifts under the Aquino regime

1. The impeachment of Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona can be considered as an expedient albeit minor course of action towards putting Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo before the bar of justice. Corona is an Arroyo lackey. Foreseeing legal battles, the former president appointed Corona as Chief Justice at the eleventh hour so that she could avail of the powers of the Supreme Court when she needs to.

The latest media reports of the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) Negros Occidental Chief Dante Baldevarona that the NPA tops the list of human rights violations is highly expected from him as an AFP special agent. He even went beyond declaring that the AFP has no violations whatsoever and went on further to conclude that the fascist military now has a high level of human rights consciousness.

ANG BAYAN: Unite the people against the US-Aquino regime's war of suppression

After only a year and a half in power, the US-Aquino regime leaves behind a "road of righteousness" stained with the blood of victims of human rights violations committed in the course of the war of suppression being waged by the regime against the people. Benigno Aquino III's catchwords of "peace" and "respect for human rights" are not enough to cover up the brutality of his regime's armed minions against the Filipino people.

As soon as he came to power, Aquino gave marching orders to the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police to crush the New People's Army in three years. The AFP thus framed Oplan Bayanihan (OPB), a far more brutal war of suppression against the people.

Under OPB, military operations are being launched against villages suspected by the AFP and PNP of being active in the revolutionary movement. The AFP has positioned teams of soldiers in barrio centers to wreak havoc, terrorize and attack people it considers as "enemies of the state." These vicious operations are patterned after those launched by the butcher Gen. Jovito Palparan from 2004-2010.

NDF-EV assails “insurgency-free” charade in Leyte, warns of social volcano waiting to explode

December 12, 2011

The National Democratic Front-Eastern Visayas said today that Gov. Jericho Petilla and 8th Infantry Division chief Gen. Mario Chan were engaging in a charade in declaring Leyte as “insurgency-free,” and warned that the province was a social volcano waiting to explode. The NDF-EV spokesperson, Fr. Santiago Salas, said that, “Gov. Petilla and Gen. Chan do not make fools of anyone but themselves in declaring Leyte as “insurgency-free” – while laughably nixing at the same time the withdrawal of military troops from the province. Their real intention is to justify the continuing militarization and the barefaced attacks on civilians and their communities under Oplan Bayanihan. Soldiers continue to violate international humanitarian law with impunity, occupying villages on the psywar of “peace and development,” such as in Tacloban City, Carigara, Tunga and other towns. The military also has yet to account for the series of massacres of peasants and other innocent civilians such as the noted scientist Leonard Co and his assistants. If there is any pest the people wish to be free of, it is the military and not the New People's Army.”

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) slammed the Aquino regime for comitting the same human rights violations as its predecessor. "The Aquino regime has denied the Filipino people reason to celebrate International Human Rights Day as the past year and a half has been marked by widespread violations of political and civil rights committed by abusive military, police and paramilitary forces of the US-Aquino regime in the course of waging its Oplan Bayanihan war of suppression."

Dili na bag-o alang sa masang Blaan ang pagbabag ug pagsukol batok sa makagubang kalamboan– “kalamboan” nga naghambin og kamatayon alang sa tribu sama sa dinagkung pagmina sa Xstrata-SMI nga ginapamugos sa kagamhanan nga dawaton sa katawhan. Bisan sa panahon pa sa pagsulod sa Western Mining Corporation (WMC) niadtong 1991, ang masa nagpakita og pagsukol aron dili makasulod o maka-opereyt ang langyaw.

Sa kasamtangan, nag-atubang na usab sila sa labing dakung hagit sa ilang pagtunhay isip lumad – ang Xstrata-SMI nga nagyaka sa kapin kon kulang 99,400 ektarya nga sakop sa upat ka probinsya dinhi sa FarSouth. Dakung bahin o 75% sa kasamtangang proyekto sa Xstrata-SMI mga yutang kabilin nga iya sa katawhang Blaan.

Matud sa SMI, mokabat sa 582 bubong sa mga lumad ang direk- tang maapektohan gikan sa Brgy Kimlawis, Kiblawan ug Brgy Tablu, sakop sa Tampakan. Apan mas daghan pa ang apektado (minilyon ka mga masa), kun magsugod na ang pagmina ug mahitabo ang dili nato gustong mahitabo sama sa mga katalagman.

Karon gisugdan na ang pagpa- layas sa mga lumad. Gidali-dali sa kompanya ang pag-imbentaryo sa mga pananom, balay ug uban pang improvements sa lugar aron human sa binayranay, mapahawa na dayon nila ang mga lumulupyo. Tungod sa kaapurado sa kompanya, hasta pang-bugay sa mga B’laan buot nilang bayran. Gigamit sa kompanya ang 27th IB, Task Force KITACO, 39th IB ug mga paramilitar aron sayon ra ang pag-abog sa mga lumad.

Taliwala sa mga panaad, pan- gilad ug pagpamig-ot sa kompanya ug sa ilang mga sinuhulang militar, nagkakusog ang pagbabag ug pagsukol sa katawhang Pilipino, ilabina kadtong direktang naapektohan. Nagkadaghan ang lig-ong nagabarog ug nanlimbasog aron panalipdan nila ang ilang yuta, tubig, dagat ug kinaiyahan. Usa lang ang ilang singgit: Bungkagon ta ang makadaut nga pagmina sa XSTRATA-SMI!

h3(subtitle). Dinagkung Pagmina sa Xstrata-SMI

Ang Xstrata SMI ang labing dakung pagmina sa Pilipinas sa usa ka langyawng multinasyonal nga nagtinguhang kobkobon ang atong kayutaan aron kuhaon ang copper, bulawan, silver, nickel ug uban pang minerales nga anaa dinhi. Gamit ang langyawng kapital nga nagkantidad og $5.9 bilyon, tumong sa kompanya nga makawkaw ang pinakadakung depositong copper ug bulawan sa tibuok Southeast Asia – natural nga bahandi nga iya sa katawhang Pilipino. Matud pa sa mga eksperto, bisan sulod sa 50 ka tuig, dili pa kayang hutdon ang copper, bulawan ug uban pang minerales nga anaa dinhi sa atong kabukiran. Target sa minahan nga kitaon ang mokabat sa $840 bilyon.

h3(subtitle). Mga Kadaut sa Dinagkung Pagmina

Kun unsa kadaku ang kitaon sa kompanya mao usab kagrabe o labaw pa ang kadaut nga mahitabo kanato ug sa kinaiyahan kun mapasagdan natong mag-opereyt ang Xstrata-SMI. Mabungkag ang kabukiran, makontaminar ang kadagatan ug mawad-ag puluy-anan ug panginabuhian ang pid-an ka libong katawhan sa mga probinsya sa South Cotabato, Davao del Sur, Sultan Kudarat ug Sarangani. Labaw sa tanan, ang open pit mine posibleng mosangpot ngadto sa katalagman sama sa landslide, mga pagbaha, pagkontaminar sa katubigan ug pagkabungkag sa ecosystem o balanse sa kinaiyahan.

Madaut ang 7,000 ektaryang closed canopy forest sa Bololomot nga nagsilbing watershed sa lima ka mayor nga suba nga gisaligan sa irigasyon sa upat ka probinsya. Madaut ang 153 sq km nga watershed sa Davao del Sur ug labing maapektohan ang Mal Catchment kun diin ibutang ang 1,018 ektaryang tailings pond nga may gilad-mon nga 500 meters. Sa Mal catchment anaa Mal River, Abnate River, Sagnit River, Atbol Creek, S’pot River, Siman Creek, Ablol River, Alap River, Talay Creek, Kalo Creek, Futa Eel Creek, S’bangken Creek ang nag-unang tinubdan sa irigasyon sa halapad nga mga basakan sa Kiblawan, Hagonoy, Matanao, ug Magsaysay, Davao del Sur. Kining tanan maapektohan ilabina ang 7,421 mag-uuma nga nagadepende sa irigasyon para sa ilang uma.

Maapektohan usab ang 33,000 ektaryang umahan sa Koronadal Valley ug water formations sa mga munisipyo sa Tampakan, Marbel, Lutayan ug Tantangan tungod maigo sa pagmina ang Marbel Watershed. Maapektohan ang Alip ug Taplan River nga mao ang gisaligan sa halapad nga mga basakan sa Sultan Kudarat ug South Cotabato, ang rice granary sa Mindanao.

h3(subtitle). Ang Xstrata ug si PNoy

Sama ni Gloria Arroyo ug Fidel Ramos, gisunod ni PNoy ang palisiyang pagpakusog sa industriya sa pagmina aron danihon ang mga imperyalistang tigpamuhunan sa paturagas nga pagkuha sa mga minerales nga kabahin sa mahinungdanong patrimonya sa atong nasud. Sukwahi sa iyang “matuwid na daan,” padayon nga gituis ni Aquino ang nahabiling mga probisyon sa konstitusyon kalabot sa atong natural nga bahandi ug pagpanalipod sa kinaiyahan.

Pananglitan, taliwala sa sunod-sunod nga mga trahedya kalambigit sa pagmina sama sa mga landslide sa Comval, Benguet ug mismo sa Pulabato, Tampakan, padayon nga giimplementar ni PNoy ang gikasilagan nga Philippine Mining Act of 1995.

Ang Philippine Mining Act of 1995, nga giaprobahan panahon pa ni Gen. Fidel V. Ramos ug giimplementar sa misunod nga mga administrasyon, maoy labing kongkretong timaan sa pagka-itoy sa panggamhanan sa langyawng monopolyo kapitalista. Sa maong balaod, gihatagan og gahum ang mga langyawng korporasyon nga makapanag-iya og 100% sa minahan, makapagawas sa tanan nilang ganansya, makaangkon og daghan kaayong insentibo sa buhis ug mahatagan og prayoridad sa pag-opereyt. Balaod kini nga nagalapas bisan sa burges-demokratikong konstitusyon sa Pilipinas ug klarong nagahatag og dalan aron yatakan ang patrimonya sa nasud. Apan obligado si Aquino (sama sa kanhing mga papet nga presidente) nga mosunod sa kagustohan sa mga pwersang miplastar kanila nganha sa gahum.

h3(subtitle). Ang Mina ug ang Militar

Sukad pa sa pagsugod sa dinagkung pagmina gikan pa sa WMC hangtud sa Xstrata-SMI, walay paglurang nga mga operasyong-militar ang gipahamtang sa AFP sa dapit; hinungdan sa hilabihang pag-antus nga nasinati sa mga lumulupyo dinhi. Unang biktima mao sila Gurilmin Malid, Rogelio Lagaro, ang lider mag-uuma nga si Renato Pacayde ug, niadtong 2009, ang anti-mining activist nga si Eliezer “Boy” Billianes. Ang pinakaulahi mao ang inilang misyonaryong si Fr. Fausto “Pops” Tentorio nga gipusil-patay didto sa iya mismong kumbento sa Arakan, North Cotabato niadtong Oktubre karong tuiga. Tungod sa ilang pag-barog batok sa dinagkung pagmina ug pakigbisog aron panalipdan ang yuta, kinabuhi ug kinaiyahan, gipamatay sila. Walay bisan usa sa mga kriminal ang nasikop ug napahamtangan og silot hangtud karon.

Ang katawhan nagatoo nga ang kompanya ug mismo ang AFP maoy nagpaluyo niini nga mga krimen. Sukad sa paglingkod ni Gloria Arroyo niadtong 2001 ug hangtud karon sa panahon ni Aquino, walay hunong ang mga extra-judicial killings ngadto sa mga lideres sa katawhan nga hugot nga nagabarog alang sa tinuod nga kalinaw ug kalamboan.

Sa kasamtangan ginahimong pasumangil sa AFP ang programang kontra-insurhensya sa gubyerno aron lutuson ug hadlokon ang mga nagababag ug nagasukol sa kompanya. Ginapahigayon nila ang kaylap ug subsub nga operasyon militar aron hawanon ang dalan alang sa hanoy nga pag-opereyt sa kompanya. Ang mga erya karon sa Xstrata-SMI daw usa ka dakung garrison nga gigwardyahan sa mga regular, paramilitar, ug pribadong armadong pundok nga andam mopatay alang sa usa ka langyawng kawatan nga mao ang Xstrata.

Gawas sa subsub nga operasyon militar, gilunsad sa AFP ang usa ka kampanya sa pagdaot sa mga progresibong pundok, tawong simbahan, rebolusyonaryong kalihokan ug tanang grupo ug indibidwal nga nagasupak sa dinagkung pagmina. Gina-interogeyt ang mga lider sa komunidad ug mga enviromental advocates ug ginapasanginlan silang rebelde o kaabin sa NPA. Ginabawalan ang mga tawo nga mosalmot o magpamyembro sa mga progresibong pundok. Ginagukod ug ginaharas ang si kinsa man nga mailhan nga myembro sa Bayan Muna, Anakpawis ug susamang mga partylist.

h3(subtitle). Organisadong Armadong Pagsukol

Dili ug dili madawat sa nahigmatang katawhan nga pasagdan na lang ang mga langyaw nga maoy mamanag-iya sa atong natural nga bahandi, modaut sa kinabuhi ug panginabuhian sa katawhan ug moguba sa atong kinaiyahan. Nag-una sa han-ay sa nakigbisog mao ang mga lumad, mag-uuma, mangingisda, mamumuo ug uban pang katawhan nga direktang naapektohan sa dinagkung pagmina sa Xstrata-SMI.

Ang mga komunidad sa katawhang Lumad mipakita usab sa ilang pagbabag pinaagi sa sagon-son nga mga pagbarikada sa dalan, pagbutang og mga placards, pagpetisyon ug direktang pakigharong sa Task Force KITACO ug mga pwersa militar ug paramilitar sa AFP nga nanalipod sa kompanya. Apan bisan unsa pang mga legal nga pamaagi sa pagprotesta, wala gyud kini paminawa sa kagamhanan. Unsa pa may laing mahimo nato kun dili ang hiniusang paglunsad og usa ka rebolusyonaryong armadong pagsukol.

Uban sa atong sundalo, ang Bagong Hukbong Bayan, ilunsad nato ang usa ka organisado, kusganon, determinado ug malungtarong armadong pagsukol aron hingpit natong bungkagon ug papahawaon ang Xstrata SMI. Sa paglunsad nato sa hiniusang armadong pagsukol angay natong hinumduman ang mga mosunod nga prinsipyo:

# Hugot nga gigiyahan sa prinsipyo ang atong pagsukol nga nagsubay sa mga lehitimo ug makatarunganong basihan. Dili kini simpleng panimalos o kasuko. Ang pakigbisog batok sa dinagkung pagmina kabahin sa pangkinatibuk-an natong pakigbisog aron usbon ang mapahimuslanon ug madaugdaugong sistema, panalipdan ang atong yutang kabilin ug pakigbisogan ang katungod sa kaugalingong paghukom sa katawhang lumad.
# Ilhon nato ang atong kaaway ug segurohon ang atong target. Ipatuman nato ang hugot nga disiplina ug dili kita magpadala sa emosyon aron dili masipyat sa pag-igo sa tukmang target.
# Gamiton nato ang tanang dagway sa pagsukol ug pagbabag ug ig-on nato ang kaaway sa pinakahuyang niyang bahin. Ang matag lumulupyo usa ka sundalo– sundalo sa masang lumad nga may kaakohan sa pagpanalipod ug pagbarog sa iyang katungod.
# Dili kita magpailad sa mga hulga, disimpormasyon ug uban pang saywar ug pagpamig- ot sa militar ug matam-is nga mga pulong sa kompanya nga nagtinguhang gub-on ang atong panaghiusa ug bungkagon ang atong baruganan nga mosukol
# Nag-una kitang mosalig sa atong kolektibong kusog uban sa mga rebolusyonaryo ug progresibong pundok, ilalom sa paggiya sa Partido ug BHB.

Thus, he was a legitimate target for offensive action according to the laws of war. The Red fighters also confiscated a .45 caliber pistol from Barbo.”

NDF-EV warns of 8th ID's escalation of war in wake of Army chief's visit

National Democratic Front of the Philippines
Eastern Visayas
Nob. 23, 2011

The National Democratic Front-Eastern Visayas today warned that the recent visit of new Philippine Army chief Gen. Emmanuel Bautista to the 8th Infantry Division is in preparation for the escalation of war. "The Aquino government appears hell-bent on pursuing all-out war in light of its refusal to resume peace talks with the National Democratic Front of the Philippines," said Fr. Santiago Salas, NDF-EV spokesperson. "Thus, the new Army chief's inspection of the 8th ID emphasizes that Eastern Visayas is one of the priority regions targeted by the Oplan Bayanihan of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. Moreover, in lieu of peace talks, the Aquino regime is amassing weapons to unleash total war on the people. In the midst of economic crisis, it will be spending P10 billion to upgrade the AFP, aside from continuing to receive US military aid and its announced intentions to acquire weapons from South Korea.

1. It took the Aquino regime exactly 505 days to file criminal charges and effect the arrest and detention of former Philippine president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. In comparison, it took the former Arroyo regime eighty-five days to charge and incarcerate former President Joseph Estrada. While pleased with the filing of charges, the Filipino people cannot ignore the great delay with which it took the Aquino regime to finally move forward in prosecuting Arroyo for her crimes against the people.

In the spirit of the Party’s call in the region this March 2011 to overcome the obstacles to the launching of tactical offensives, comrades in the Efren Martires Command and the Arnulfo Ortiz Command of Western Samar persevered in their coordinated military planning. Last July 13 and 20, the 8th Infantry Division was stunned by the coordinated attacks of the New People’s Army on the subprovincial jail in Catbalogan and a convoy of the 34th IB in Paranas. The raid on the jail succeeded in obtaining weapons and equipment, and also served to divert enemy attention from the bigger plan of the ambush. The ambush was both the first in the region to be done at night and against the most number of military vehicles as well.

Stoke the fires of peasant struggles

Editorial
Ang Bayan
Nov 7, 2011 (English)

The widespread poverty and hunger suffered by the peasant masses nationwide are tinderboxes, sparking fires of peasant struggles everywhere. Farmers have been mounting fierce resistance to various forms of landgrabbing and struggling for genuine land reform to dismantle monopoly control over land. They have been standing up for their democratic rights even in the face of intense militarization and fascist violence.

The peasant masses rage in anger at the landlord president who has done nothing but add to their suffering. After merely more than a year in power, Benigno Aquino III has already imposed several policies that have been detrimental to the interests of the peasant masses.

The National Democratic Front-Eastern Visayas today slammed the Tan political dynasty for using Western Samar's possible recall elections to push militarization and warlordism. “We condemn the maneuver from the Tan dynasty through the provincial office of the Commission on Elections in asking for the deployment of the military and police to oversee the signature verification for the recall elections. That move is claimed by the provincial Comelec to be necessary against the revolutionary movement's taking advantage of the tense political situation. But in reality, the Tan dynasty and the military are the ones united in taking advantage of and attacking the people to their mutual benefit.

GPH undermines basic peace agreements, refuses to respect and comply with JASIG

In response to the statement of the Government of the Philippines (GPH) Negotiating Panel, dated 21 October 2011 but sent out only on 24 October 2011, the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) Negotiating Panel states the following:

1. The release of the 13 NDFP Consultants and JASIG (Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees) protected persons who are now in the custody of the GPH is an obligation of the GPH in compliance with the JASIG. It is not a precondition that is unilaterally imposed by the NDFP. And neither is it a mere confidence-building measure that is one-sidedly subject to the arbitrary exercise and abuse of discretion of the GPH. The unlawful arrest, detention and prosecution of these JASIG-protected persons are blatant violations of the JASIG, the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHRIHL), and the laws of the GPH itself. Their immediate release is being demanded by the NDFP as a matter of legal right, to uphold justice and the rule of law.

He is merely pretending to be for peace negotiations in order to camouflage the extremely brutal military operations of Oplan Bayanihan and his actual instructions to Ging Deles, secretary of the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process, to invalidate all previous agreements of the Government of the Philippines (GPH/GRP) with the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

Formal peace talks between the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) and the Government of the Philippines (GPH) scheduled on October 31-November 12 in Oslo, Norway have been stymied anew. The reason is the GPH's renewed failure to fulfill its obligations under the Oslo Joint Statements of January and February 2011 to release most if not all of the 17 detained NDFP consultants protected by the Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees (JASIG).

The GPH had promised just last September to comply with this obligation on or before October 10 to enable both parties to prepare for their participation in the peace talks in Oslo.

On the Killing of Fr. Fausto Tentorio

The 602nd Brigade of the 6th ID-AFP has gone berserk in unleashing its reign of counter-revolutionary terror, unmasking the misnomer Oplan Bayanihan, in Arakan, North Cotabato, first with the killing of Fr. Fausto “Pops” Tentorio on October 17, and second, with the grave atrocities it committed against the peasant masses on October 20 in Arakan, North Cotabato. The Herminio Alfonso Command, Front 53 Operations, likewise, scoffed the lies perpetrated by the AFP; 57th IB Commanding Officer Col. Joven Gonzales said the raid conducted by the 5th SF acted upon a tip that there were landmines in the area while 602nd Bde Commander Col. Cesar Sedillo and Eastern Mindanao Command spokesperson Col. Leopoldo Galon, Jr, claimed that there was a legitimate encounter with Red Fighters in the area. No such encounter occurred.

An undersized platoon of the 5th Special Forces, operating under the auspices of the 57th IB-602nd Bde, tortured, killed Ramon Batoy, an ordinary civilian and peasant leader, and showed him off as a member of the New People’s Army in Sitio Upper Lumbo, Brgy. Kabalantian, Arakan, North Cotabato. Batoy put up a fight, struck his bolo against the enemy lieutenant who led the raiding Special Forces, and wounded the other soldier before the enemy riddled his body with bullets, in front of his 6-month pregnant wife and two children who asked for their mercy while trying to flee. The enemy placed an M14 rifle, its sling over his lifeless body, and took his picture.

Not content with the cold-blooded murder, the Special Forces also strafed the houses of the civilians, arrested, detained and tortured two other civilians, Noli Badol and Celso Batol, whom they claimed as NPA members. Fearing for their lives, 48 peasant families of sitio upper Lumbo evacuated.

The criminal 57th IB and 5th SF of the 602nd Bde has shed off the vestiges of the AFP’s Oplan Bayanihan as a grossly fascist and anti-people counter-revolutionary program of the US-Aquino Regime. The murders and atrocities in Arakan, North Cotabato has showed that the fascists have no compunction in unleashing their brutality against the people using the deceptive “soft approach” trickery. The toiling masses can only turn to the people’s democratic revolution for genuine justice.

Ang mga guro ng bayan, sa loob at labas ng kanilang silid-aralan sa buong kapuluan ay taas-kamaong sumasaludo at nagpupugay sa kadakilaan ni kasamang Gregorio “Ka Roger” Rosal.

Inialay ni Ka Roger ang apat na dekada ng kanyang buhay hanggang sa huling tibok ng kanyang puso sa paglilingkod sa bayan, sa Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas at sa rebolusyong Pilipino. Buhay na inialay nang sa gayo’y matamasa ng henerasyon ng sabayanang Pilipino sa hinaharap ang tunay na malaya, demokratiko, maunlad at mapayapang Pilipinas.

Transcript of Ka Simon Santiago audio message re Fr. Fausto “Pops” Tentorio:

Hugot nga gikondena ug gipanghimaraut sa New Peoples Army Southern Mindanao ang brutal ug wa’y kalooy nga pagpatay kay Fr.

Fausto diha sa diocese sa Kidapawan, ngadto sa iyang banay ug mga paryente, ngadto sa iyang mga higala, ngadto sa iyang mga parokyano, ug mga komunidad sa mga Lumad diha sa Arakan, North Cotabato kinsa gialagaran. Ug gipakitaan ni Fr. Tentorio sa iyang pagkamatinud-anon sa tinguha sa hustisya ug kalinaw alang sa katawhang kabus labi pa sa mga kaigsoonang Lumad.

The National Democratic Front–FarSouth Mindanao Region salutes the people’s martyr Fr. Fausto “Pops” Tentorio who was mercilessly gunned down in his convent in Arakan on October 17, 2011. We pay our highest tribute to this quintessential progressive who served the people selflessly and wholeheartedly for the greater part of his adult life in the many remote places of Mindanao, Southern Philippines.

Indefinite postponement and non-compliance are obstacles to meaningful peace negotiations

Luis G. Jalandoni
Chairperson, NDFP Negotiating Panel
19 October 2011

Peace advocates in the country and abroad will be frustrated and deeply disappointed with GPH Panel Chair Alexander Padilla's announcement of indefinitely postponing the peace talks with the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP). Their high hopes for the advance of the peace negotiations and the forging of agreements addressing the roots of the armed conflict are dashed by this Padilla announcement.

The National Democratic Front Southern Mindanao held the elements of the 6th ID-Eastern Mindanao Command-AFP as responsible for the extra-judicial killing of Fr. Fausto “Pops” Tentorio. As the military unit engaged in active counterrevolutionary program of the US-Aquino regime operating in North Cotabato, South Cotabato, Maguindanao and Saranggani, the 6th ID-EastMinCom masterminded, orchestrated and executed the October 17 daylight murder of Fr. Tentorio in Arakan, North Cotabato. The 6th ID-EastMinCom has the mandate from the Aquino administration to implement the GPH’s Oplan Bayanihan, a carry-over of the Arroyo regime’s Oplan Bantay Laya that similarly targets civilians like Fr. Tentorio.
