Every effort must be made for the success of the current peace talks between the NDFP and the GPH. This is the obligation of all revolutionaries and sincere elements in Philippine society and support groups, organizations and states in the international community.By this, we mean the assertion of the peace process as agreed upon in The Hague Declaration jointly signed by the NDFP and the GRP/GPH, and by consistently and persistently fighting for the people’s rights.Those who insist on outrageous preconditions and outright violation of the peace process, and those who continue to violate the people’s rights are scuttlers of the peace talks.

The National Democratic Front-Eastern Visayas today lauded the New People’s Army in Western Samar for successfully raiding the police headquarters in Hinabangan town last Sept. 12. “The NPA offensives in the region are meant to punish the Aquino regime’s treachery in peace negotiations with the NDFP,” said Fr. Santiago Salas, NDF-EV spokesperson. “The NDFP has been very patient, magnanimous and open to peace talks despite years of the Philippine government’s various insults, attacks on the NDFP consultants, and the increasing exploitation and oppression of the people by the reactionary ruling system. But it is now a matter of principle and the revolutionary movement is sending the signal to the Aquino regime that its treachery in peace negotiations will not be taken sitting down.”

Amidst the world commemoration of the International Humanitarian Law on August 8, the 50th IB under the 503rd brigade of the AFP shamelessly committed widespread human rights violations against the people of Sallapadan, Bucloc, Daguioman and Boliney (BuDaBoSa), all in the province of Abra.

In the pretense of achieving peace through the US-Aquino regime’s Oplan Bayanihan, the 50th IB on the contrary spread fear and terror among the people of BuDaBoSa while conducting Peace and Development Team (PDT) operations under the leadership of Lt. Col. Anquillano. At present, the three companies of the 50th IB are encamped in houses in the Barangays of Ud-udiao, Bazar, Naguillan, Bila-bila and Saccaang in the municipality of Sallapadan; and in Barangays Ableg and Kabaruyan in the municipality of Daguioman.

Servility of Netherlands to the US in the terrorist listing of Prof. Jose Maria Sison

English translation of Dutch original

The German Tageszeitung asked this question at the commemoration of 9/11 this weekend: who has profited the most now from the attacks in 2001? Beside the weapons and security industry, the neocons and the rightist populists, the newspaper also mentioned the despots in the world who, thanks to the “war on terror”, have used the so called fight against terrorism to suppress their opponents and reinforce their dominant position in their own countries. Unmindful of human rights or democratic rules, 9/11 provided repressive apparatus to countries such as Russia, other former Soviet states and Arab countries the chance to silence, if not entirely eliminating the opposition without having to worry about cumbersome questions from the international community.
