The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today condemned the ratification of the Status of Visiting Forces Agreement (SOVFA) with Australia which provides the Australian military access to Philippine seaport and airport facilities. "As an unabashed military puppet and proxy of the US government in the Asia-Pacific, the Australian military launches overseas operations which serve the power projection and hegemonist objectives of the US military."

Proven to be anti-national and anti-people, the clamor against large-scale foreign mining in the country has been growing in the past years. Aquino responds by issuing Executive Order No. 79. Entitled as  “Institutionalizing and Implementing Reforms in the Philippine Mining Sector, Providing Policies and Guidelines to Ensure Environmental Protection and Responsible Mining in the Utilization of Mineral Resources,” E.O. 79 appears novel and reformative but remarkably flawed and pro-capitalists.

Pnoy's "Report kay Boss," A Report for his Real Bosses -- The Imperialists and the Ruling Class

PNoy’s “report kay boss” (“report for boss”) pictured the situation of the nation according to the view of his real bosses, charting the country’s direction in the next three years in consonance with the greedy interests of the imperialists, big bourgeois comprador, big landlords and bureaucrat-capitalists.  But on the other hand, PNoy’s report to his real boss glossed over the suffering of the broadest number of people, and portends of marked more hardship in the years to come.

In the face of continuing fascist and pro-imperialist attacks against the people, the National Democratic-Easter Visayas today said that President Benigno Aquino's July 23 State of the Nation Address  merely upheld the deplorable state of the region. “The Aquino regime has declared war against thepeople, not only through the military's Oplan Bayanihan, but also through large-scale mining and other pro-imperialist policies,” said Fr. Santiago Salas, NDF-EV spokesperson.

Pull all stops to resist the Aquino regime's "cha-cha" scheme

PDF available in Pilipino
Reactionary politicians are currently busy trying to sneak charter change ("cha-cha") into the national agenda. No matter how much Aquino denies it, "cha-cha" is definitely one of the priorities of his regime and the entire ruling system. It is a logical consequence of Aquino's betrayal of the nation's sovereignty in allowing growing US armed presence in the country and his ceding of the national patrimony to foreign companies.

Aquino's minions are actively working on building a broad consensus among reactionary politicians in favor of charter change. These efforts are being led by Juan Ponce Enrile, Senate president and one of the leading stalwarts and baton wielders of US imperialism. Enrile's partner in this endeavor is Rep. Feliciano Belmonte, Speaker of the Lower House of Congress.

Aquino's SONA: A grand failure at deception

Communist Party of the Philippines
July 24, 2012

Aquino's otherworldly State of the Nation Address (SONA) yesterday was a grand failure at deceiving the Filipino people. In rapid-fire fashion, Aquino enumerated the "achievements" of his regime using the old US-designed "good government" template, the same one used by Gloria Arroyo in her nine SONAs. This template is comprised of the selective projection of statistics and half-truths manufactured within Malacañang Palace while completely ignoring the reality on the ground.

Pnoy’s Sona: Nothing but a reaffirmation of loyalty to his imperialist master and its big bourgeois comprador and big landlord cohorts, the US-Aquino Regime’s real bosses

On July 23, Benigno Aquino III will, for the third time, present his State of the Nation Address (Sona).  It will be punctuated with a distorted presentation of the nation’s real situation, achievements bloated by dubious statistics, economic programs that compromise the nation’s patrimony and the environment in favor of foreign big business, big landlords and big bourgeois comprador -- a discourse oblivious of the people’s demand for genuine land reform and national industrialization.  PNoy will highlight his anti-Corona victory, and include the gains of its brutal Oplan Bayanihan against the revolutionary movement, even as its US imperialist master continues to trample upon our country’s sovereignty.
