The death of Gregorio "Ka Roger" Rosal, spokesman of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP), leaves a void in the revolutionary movement.

He was the face of the movement, the consolidated expression of a peasant and mill worker who was imprisoned, escaped, rejoined the underground and worked tirelessly to build guerrilla fronts under the most perilous conditions in the border of Quezon and Bicol, the Bondoc Peninsula and in Mindoro.

Dear Comrades,

Recently we got the painful information of the death of Comrade Gregorio Rosal, “Ka Roger”, the Spokesperson of the Communist Party of the Philippines.

As marxist-leninist-maoist Communists in a imperialistic country, we try to give our best to propagandize communist parties in suppressed countries, especially those parties who wage people´s war. Since a long time the Communist Party of the Philippines wage out such a revolutionary war and all revolutionary and progressive forces around the world are in deep solidarity with the struggle of your Party, the New People´s Army and the Mass- and Unity-Front-Organizations against fascism, repression and imperialist exploitation.

Para sa amin na naging malapit sa kanya, "Dad" ang naging koda namin sa bantog na mukha at tagapagsalita ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas. Una ko siyang nakilala bilang si Ka Jo, Ka Beng, Ka Goring at iba pang nom de guerre na naisipan niyang gamitin. Hindi ko alam kung kailan nagsimulang bigyan ng ilang kasama ng kodang Dad si Gregorio "Ka Roger" Rosal. Sa bahagi ko, natutunan ko na lamang iyon sa kanilang mas nauna sa akin na makasama ang wonder old man ng kilusan (tiyak pupunahin niya ako sa ganito dahil aniya'y kalabaw lang ang tumatanda). Madali lamang para sa akin ang masanay na tawagin siyang Dad dahil mas ligtas itong gamitin sa talastasan maliban pa sa anggulo na sadyang tinitingan namin siya bilang isang ama ng aming yunit.

Sa mahabang panahon, ibinuhos ni ka Roger ang kanyang talino at lakas sa rebolusyonaryong pakikibaka. Naging bahagi siya sa pagpupundar at pagpapalawak ng kilusan upang maitaguyod ang matagalang digmang bayan sa iba’t ibang probinsya, higit sa rehiyon ng Timog Katagalugan. Nakilala bilang tagapagsalita ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas at ng Bagong Hukbong Bayan-Rehiyon ng Timog Katagalugan (Melito Glor Command). Siya ay nagsilbing boses at mukha ng rebolusyonaryong kilusan upang maisakongkreto ang mga larawan ng armadong pakikibaka at hakbang-hakbang na pagkamit nito ng tagumpay.

US imperialist intervention is intensifying in the Philippines under the puppet Aquino regime. Relentlessly interfering in the country’s internal economic, political, military and cultural affairs, US imperialist overlords have been brazenly brandishing their military power to further consolidate more than a century of neocolonial domination in the country and push harder for policies that cater to foreign interests to the detriment of the people.

69th IB command post booby trap explodes

Incurring an undetermined number of enemy casualties, a booby trap snapped surrounding the command post of the 69th IB of the AFP in Purok 8, Crossing Ginobatan, Paradise Embac, Paquibato district, Davao City last October 10, at 10 in the morning.

The Amoran Saripada Command, Front 52 Operations Command of the New People’s Army-Southern Mindanao sees the 69th IB’s use of clamor mine and handgrenade which forms part of the booby trap as a patent violation to the Ottawa Treaty and is perilous to farmers residing near the military camp. The Ottawa treaty prohibits the use of pressure/victim-detonated mines like the booby trap; the Ottawa treaty defines anti-personnel mine as “a mine designed to be exploded by the presence, proximity or contact of a person and that will incapacitate, injure or kill one or more persons.”

On October 10, 2011, the 503rd Brigade pounced on NPA guerillas in Barangay Caganayan, Tineg, Abra. The soldiers were guided by treacherous elements and caught the guerrillas off-guard. It was a dark moment as 8 NPA guerrillas died while fighting a more powerful enemy force.

The brave guerrillas who perished in the battle are Ka Rencel, Ka Oxy/Alon, Ka Arbis/Ogie, Ka Recti, Ka Kris, Ka Berlin, Ka Bunso/Ronald, and Ka Andoy. Their birth names or identities will be released and confirmed, pending identification of their families and by the masses.

Reeling from frustration over the inutility of its rescue operations, the Eastern Mindanao Command of the AFP has fast-tracked the craft it has mastered: double talk.

In the heels of the National Democratic Front and the Southern Mindanao Party Regional Committee-CPP announcements of the order of release of the four Prisoners of War from the PNP/BJMP, the two 75th IB-4th ID intelligence officers and Mayor Henry Dano, EastMinCom spokesperson Col. Leopoldo Galon, Jr. reacted in ways meant to undermine the public's positive response to the exercise of revolutionary political authority by the people's democratic goverment. And in the process, he issues self-contradictory and in fact, silly pronouncements that reek with conceit.

Public notice of Ka Roger's death has sparked widespread expression of sympathy, grief and admiration for the former CPP spokesperson.

The CPP yesterday announced the death of its former spokesperson Gregorio "Ka Roger" Rosal who succumbed to a heart attack on June 22. The CPP had delayed issuing a public announcement because it had to confirm first whether his daughters had already received the news of their father's passing. Intensive military operations prevented the sad news from reaching Ka Roger's children with dispatch.

Si Ka Roger ay pumanaw noong Hunyo 22, 2011 sa edad na 64 dahil sa atake sa puso sa isang larangang gerilya sa Luzon.

Sa loob ng mahigit isang dekada bilang tagapagsalita ng Partido, at bago ito, bilang tagapagsalita ng Bagong Hukbong Bayan sa Southern Tagalog (Melito Glor Command), si Ka Roger ang nagsilbing mukha at tinig ng rebolusyonaryong kilusan ng sambayanang Pilipino. Naging simbolo siya ng pakikibaka ng karaniwang tao--ng masang magsasaka, manggagawa, mga maralita, kawani at maliliit na propesyunal--na may matayog na hangaring makalaya mula sa naghaharing sistema na umaapi at nagsasamantala sa kanila.
