The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) said the appointment of Sec.

Shatter the myth of "good governance"

For close to two weeks now, the ruling Aquino regime, its yellow army of public opinion spinmeisters and reformist circles have been whipping up a propaganda frenzy in the media over the death of Jesse Robredo. Robredo, former long-time mayor of Naga City and Aquino's interior and local government secretary, died in a plane crash on August 18 off the northern coast of Masbate island.

Not a few grieved over Robredo's passing. He was a novelty of a politician who styled himself differently from the rest of the dirty rascals. His simple life of traveling by bus, jogging in the public plaza and donning slippers and simple dressware set him apart from the heavily escorted, power-tripping and fashionista politicians and state officials. To many who had grown tired and cynical of the rottenness of Philippine politics and bureaucracy, Robredo was a breath of fresh air.

A unit of the New People's Army under the Ignacio "Eking" Balacuit Command paralyzed five of Del Monte's heavy equipment yesterday, August 7, around 7:00 PM, in Kagumahan, Kinoguitan, Misamis Oriental.

Here in the region, agribusiness companies are engaged in fierce competition in amassing agricultural lands that serve as the primary source of livelihood for the great majority of the population. Del Monte, Dole and SUMIFRU, lording it over the agribusiness sector, in cahoots with the big landlords, are the most aggressive landgrabbers who seize the lands cultivated by the peasants for food crops and convert these for export crop production.

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) lambasted the appointment of Lourdes Sereno as new Supreme Court Chief Justice, saying it marks the Aquino regime's further consolidation of political power and portends a more frenzied drive to amend the 1987 constitution and carry out far more brutal attacks against the Filipino people.
