Condemnation of misrepresentation by officials and paid hacks of Aquino Regime

NDFP Chief Political Consultant
May 5, 2013

Officials and paid hacks of the Aquino regime are misrepresenting me as having made threats of NPA tactical offensives. I did not make such threats. I condemn the misrepresentation of my analysis.  I described and analyzed the situation and consequences of the termination of the peace negotiations by the Aquino regime.

My exact words in the interview by Sonny Mallari of the Philippine Daily Inquirer are as follows:

"Because of the worsening economic and social crisis and the lack of real peace negotiations, the people's revolutionary armed struggle will intensify for sure. The Aquino regime is asking for intensified tactical offensives by the NPA."



"If the GPH does the termination, the NDFP looks after the safety and immunity of its panelists, consultants and other related persons and anticipates that GRP is going to escalate its campaigns of military suppression and deception.

"The CPP, NPA and other revolutionary forces and people represented by the NDFP strengthen their strategic defensive posture. At the same time, the tactical offensives of the NPA fulltime fighters, people's militia, armed city partisans and its newly-announced commando units are intensified.

"The US-Aquino regimes uses Oplan Bayanihan to seek the defeat of the revolutionary movement. The revolutionary forces fight back and strive to realize the advance from the strategic defensive to the strategic stalemate through the intensification of tactical offensives.

"By its termination of peace negotiations, the GPH inflames the armed conflict in the entire country. The US-Aquino regime will certainly go down in history as a puppet, corrupt. brutal and mendacious regime like the Marcos and Arroyo regimes. Human rights violations by the AFP, PNP and paramilitary forces of the GPH will increase rapidly."

Below is the full transcript of my interview with Sonny Mallari of the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
 

Sonny Mallari, Philippine Daily Inquirer

Should the government have observed the process of terminating the peace talks - notice of termination, 30 days - what would be the position of the NDFP?
How would you view the prospect that the government would again aggressively pursue the localized peace talks?
Kausap ko kanina ang Solcom spokesperson and sinasabi niya na matagal na nilang ginagawa ang local peace talks kaya maraming NPA na ang sumusuko.
With this fresh local peace talks drive, lalo na daw babagsak na ang communist insurgency.

Prof. Jose Maria Sison, NDFP Chief Political Consultant

Mallari: Should the government have observed the process of terminating the peace talks - notice of termination, 30 days - what would be the position of the NDFP?

SISON ANSWER: Yes, the JASIG provides the way for either side to terminate the peace negotiations by giving written notice of termination to the other side and the termination takes effect after 30 days. Estrada regime gave a written notice of termination to the NDFP in May 1989. But the Aquino regime has no respect for solemn agreements.

Mallari: How would you view the prospect that the government would again aggressively pursue the localized peace talks?

SISON ANSWER: There is no such thing as localized peace talks because the NDFP Negotiating Panel is the body authorized by the CPP and NPA for peace negotiations. You can have fake negotiations and fake mass surrenders done by the military for psywar and corrupt purposes (a way for officials to pocket money in the name of fake surrenderees).

Mallari: Kausap ko kanina ang Solcom spokesperson and sinasabi niya na matagal na nilang ginagawa ang local peace talks kaya maraming NPA na ang sumusuko.

SISON ANSWER: Lumang tugtugin ang localized peace talks magmula pa kay Marcos. Walang tunay na rebolusyonaryo ang sumusuko.

Mallari: With this fresh local peace talks drive, lalo na daw babagsak na ang communist insurgency.

SISON ANSWER: Because of the worsening economic and social crisis and the lack of real peace negotiations, the people's revolutionary armed struggle will intensify for sure. The Aquino regime is asking for intensified tactical offensives by the NPA.

Kung sumunod sa proseso ng termination ng peace talks ang govt, may pormal notification ang third party at ndfp at sumunod sa 30 days period, tatanggapin na ninyo na stop na ang peace talks? Sa ganitong senaryo, ano ang susunod na hakbang ng revo movemnt?

Joma Sison

According to the JASIG, either one of the two negotiating parties can at anytime decide for its own reasons to give the other party the written notice of termination of the peace negotiations and the termination takes effect after 30 days.
 

It is at least a matter of courtesy but not a requirement stipulated in JASIG that the third party facilitator is informed by the party terminating the peace negotiations.

If the GPH does the termination, the NDFP looks after the safety and immunity of its panelists, consultants and other related persons and anticipates that GRP is going to escalate its campaigns of military suppression and deception.

The CPP, NPA and other revolutionary forces and people represented by the NDFP strengthen their strategic defensive posture. At the same time, the tactical offensives of the NPA fulltime fighters, people's militia, armed city partisans and its newly-announced commando units are intensified.

The US-Aquino regimes uses Oplan Bayanihan to seek the defeat of the revolutionary movement. The revolutionary forces fight back and strive to realize the advance from the strategic defensive to the strategic stalemate through the intensification of tactical offensives.

By its termination of peace negotiations, the GPH inflames the armed conflict in the entire country. The US-Aquino regime will certainly go down in history as a puppet, corrupt. brutal and mendacious like the Marcos and Arroyo regimes. Human rights violations by the AFP, PNP and paramilitary forces of the GPH will increase rapidly.
