Filipino workers must unite to expose and oppose the anti-worker US-Aquino regime

01 May 2011

On the125th year commemoration of the International Day of Labor, the NDFP-Mindanao salutes all Filipino workers. We honor the heroes and martyrs of the militant and revolutionary labor movement in the country and around the world who have set a great example of dedication and revolutionary fervor for the emancipation of the proletariat and other toiling classes from the throes of exploitation and oppression.

Under a semi-colonial and semi-feudal Philippines, the Filipino proletariat, who comprise 15% of the populace, are placed at the very altar of exploitation and oppression to satiate the hunger for super profit of foreign monopoly capitalists and their counterpart local comprador bourgeoisie.

Resist plan to allow US to re-establish military presence in Subic--CPP

CPP Information Bureau
April 28, 2011

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today called on the Filipino people to vigorously resist any plan of the US and Aquino governments to reestablish military presence in Subic Bay, whether in the form of a military base or related facilities for the US military.

Last Tuesday, US Senators Daniel Inouye and Thad Cochran met with Philippine President Benigno Aquino after visiting the Subic Bay Freeport to be briefed about the situation in the former US military base. The US military is reportedly searching for alternative places in the Asia-Pacific region to establish bases in the face of growing opposition to their military bases in Okinawa, Japan where the US 7th Pacific Fleet is headquartered.

Mga dumukot kay Jonas Burgos, dinarahas ang mamamayan para pagtakpan ang kanilang pagkatalo sa labanan

New People's Army-Bulacan
Abril 28, 2011

Mariing kinokondena ng NPA - Bulacan ang ginagawang pandarahas at ilegal na pag-aresto sa mga mamamayan ng Brgy. Paradise III, San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan ng mga miyembro ng 56th Infantry Batallion-PA upang pagtakpan ang kanilang pagkatalo sa labanan sa pagitan nila at mga miyembro ng NPA-Bulacan. Ang 56th IBPA ay tanyag sa pagdukot at pamamaslang sa Gitnang Luzon tulad ng nangyari kina Karen Empeǹo, Sherlyn Cadapan at Jonas Burgos. Matatandaan na noong Abril 26, Martes ay nilusob ng mga miyembro ng 56th IB ang pansamantalang nakahimpil na miyembro ng NPA-Bulacan mga ika 5:30 ng umaga. Ayaw man ng NPA na makipaglaban sa dahilang malapit sa bahayan ng sibilyan ay naobliga ang mga ito na labanan ang mga miyembro ng 56th IB upang iligtas ang sarili kasabay ang pagtitiyak ng kaligtasan ng mga sibilyan na naiipit sa labanan. Habang selektibong putok ang mga pinakakawalan ng NPA para matiyak na walang tamaan na sibilyan ay niratrat naman ng mga miyembro ng 56th IB ang mga bahayan na ikinasugat ng nagngangalang Lanie Mendoza, may asawa't may dalawang anak. Ang labanan din na ito ay nagresulta sa pagkamatay ng isang miyembro ng 56th IB na si Cpl Reyes at pagkasugat ng tatlong iba pa habang wala namang pinsala sa panig ng NPA.

NDF-EV calls for resistance against Gen. Chan's fascist mass surveillance scheme

Fr. Santiago Salas
NDF-Eastern Visayas
April 27, 2011

The National Democratic Front-Eastern Visayas today said today that 8th Infantry Division chief Gen. Mario Chan's proposal to use military reservists in intelligence-gathering is a “fascist mass surveillance scheme” and should be resisted by the people. “Gen. Mario Chan is attacking civil liberties in tapping military reservists for intelligence work and is also exposing that human rights remains hogwash to the military,” said Fr. Santiago Salas, NDF-EV spokesperson. “What Gen. Chan wants to do is to use these reservists to spy on the people. This will endanger basic civil and political rights such as freedom of movement, freedom of speech, and freedom of assembly. Therefore it is a fascist mass surveillance scheme in using the coercive powers of the state to monitor and control the population.

Binasag ng mga malalakas ng putok ng baril at pagsabog ng mga granada ang ilang taong pananahimik ng mga mamamayan sa gitna ng tuluy-tuloy at tumitinding militarisasyon sa Carranglan. Mapangahas na dinikitan ng isa sa mga Commando Units ng NPA ang CAFGU detachment sa Barangay R.A. Padilla, na madalas magsilbing Tactical Command Post (TCP) at himpilan ng mga sundalo ng 81st Infantry Battalion, noong gabi ng April 24. Isinagawa ito sa pinakapusod mismo ng pinupokusan nilang lugar malapit sa kabayanan!

Revolution is the relevant path to a just and lasting peace

CPP Information Bureau
April 26, 2011

The National Democratic Front-Eastern Visayas today hailed the NDFP's 38th anniversary last April 24 and said that revolution remains the relevant path to a just and lasting peace. "The Aquino government is unmasking itself in using the peace negotiations with the NDFP to deceive the people while simultaneously launching another brutal military campaign in Oplan Bayanihan," said NDF-EV spokesperson Fr. Santiago Salas. "The burden of peace is on the Aquino government and not on the NDFP. After all, the Aquino government is answerable to the people who are aggrieved over such long-running problems like landlessness, joblessness, imperialist control of the economy, destruction of natural resources and national patrimony, and other basic issues. But the Aquino government avoids resolving the root causes of the armed conflict and refuses to undertake basic reforms, refuses to release the detained NDFP peace consultants and other political prisoners, and steps up its fascist attacks on the people who are demanding the alleviation of their socio-economic plight."

Ang ating demokratikong rebolusyon ng bayan na isinusulong ng malawak na sambayanan sa ilalim ng National Demicratic Front at pamumuno ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas ay bahagi ng naging paglalakbay ni Kristo tungo sa katubusan ng sangkatauhan. Ito ay kahalintulad ng naging paghihirap, kamatayan at muling pagkabuhay ng Panginoong Hesukristo -- isang paglalakbay na puno ng pasakit at kadakilaan hindi para sa sarili, kundi sa sangkatauhan. Bilang isang rebolusyonaryong samahan sa hanay ng mga taong simbahan at mga relihiyoso, ang CNL ang nangunguna sa hanay nito at patuloy na matatag na naninindigan sa pagbabandila na tanging sa pamamagitan lamang ng demokratibong rebolusyon makakamit ng sambayanan ang minimithing pagbabago.

Mobilize the people in their millions and fulfill the requirements to complete the strategic defensive stage

24 April 2011

Following from the united effort of the original 9 allied revolutionary organizations, convening for the first time as a preparatory body, the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) was founded 38 years ago today on 24 April 1973.

Today, across the entire archipelago - from Luzon, Visayas to Mindanao - the NDFP is widely and strongly established, with 17 member revolutionary organizations all together. It is only fitting to give praise in remembrance of revolutionary cadres, mass activists and the rest of the masses who unselfishly offered up their lives as heroes and martyrs in the name of building and fortifying the NDFP.

Within just ten months of Benigno Aquino III's rise to power, Kamag-Anak Inc has moved in to wrest control of the vast resources in south central Mindanao -- from large scale mining to power generation to agribusiness. Eduardo Cojuangco, through San Miguel Corporation (SMC) now has a 10% equity in Xstrata-SMI which will be the country's biggest and most destructive copper gold mine. He also acquired three coal mines in coal rich Daguma range spanning Sarangani, Sultan Kudarat and South Cotabato. SMC announced it will soon build coal fired power plants in General Santos, Sultan Kudarat and Davao.
