Information Bureau
Communist Party of the Philippines
May 17, 2012

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) denounced the entry in Philippine waters of the nuclear-capable attack submarine USS North Carolina as a violation of Philippine sovereignty.

"The US imperialist war machine entered Philippine waters in total contempt of the territorial integrity of the Philippines, even ignoring the existence of its puppet government," said the CPP. "Officials of the puppet Aquino regime were caught unaware and presented themselves as dumb and useless in the face of the unannounced entry and surfacing of the USS Carline in Subic Bay last Tuesday."

Liar! “Langkak!” (Ifugao term for liar)

Col. Miguel Puyao, spokesperson of the 5th IDPA, has a long penchant for fabrications and distortion of facts. Despite the latest investigation reports of the PNP itself that there were no casualties in the foiled raid of the 54th IBPA on a temporary NPA camp last April 21, the AFP spin master insists that there were seven Red fighters slain, including a 48-year old amazon allegedly from the province of Kalinga.

US military buildup and Aquino yes-manship leading to problems with China--CPP


Information Bureau
Communist Party of the Philippines
May 13, 2012

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) challenged the idea that China's heightened assertion of territorial claims over land features in the South China Sea is pushing the Philippines closer to the US. "On the contrary, it is US military buildup and the Aquino government's subservience and yesman-ship to the US hegemonist design in the Asia-Pacific that is pushing China to further aggressiveness, resulting in worsening territorial conflicts and stoking diplomatic tensions between China and the Philippines."

Davao's oldest landlord family has pushed a semi-proletariat community to persevere in the struggle to maintain its grip over lands, homes

The underground organization of urban poor Katipunan ng mga Samahang Manggagawa (KASAMA, condemns the flagrant oppression of Davao City's oldest landlord family Villa Abrille, Lim Chuan Juna for its forcible eviction of residents of Purok 13, Barangay Maa.  Backed with their vast resources and political connections, the Villa Abrille attempts to wrestle from the semi-proletariat families the latter's precious homes and lands.  Using the reactionary courts, executive agencies and the fascist police and security forces, the Villa Abrilles deceptively foisted against a community of 19 households families its high-end subdivision project on the strength of a fake land title.
