Tasks in addressing the reactionary 2013 elections


Editorial

It is the duty of the Party and the revolutionary movement to expose the reactionary elections as a bogus democratic device that forms part of the mechanisms that maintain the exploitative and oppressive system.

Reactionary elections in the Philippines are political carnivals held every three years. Their main features are politician-clowns who pose as promoters of the people's interests. They divert the people's attention from their gravest socio-economic problems and offer them false promises of reform under the ruling system.

Peligroso ang paghatag ni Pnoy og ECC sa Xstrata-SMI

Translated from: Pnoy’s ECC for Xstrata-SMI is catastrophic

Ang pag-apruba ug pag-isyu sa Malakanyang og ECC sa Xstrata-SMI alang sa gold-copper project sa Tampakan usa ka yawan-ong binuhatan. Dili mapasaylo si Pnoy niining maka-uulaw ug maluibong buhat. Subli niyang gipamatud-an ang pagkamasulundon ngadto sa iyang tinuod nga mga amo -- ang mga dagkung agalong yutaan, mga dagkung burgesyang kumprador ug mga langyawng monopolyo kapitalista nga naglakip sa mga dagkung minero. Ang iyang pagduso sa ECC nagpamatuod usab nga ang iyang gipanghambog nga “matuwid na daan” haw-ang ug walay pulos ug nagpakaaron-ingnong maayo apan sa tinuoray naghawan sa dalan alang sa pagpanghilabot ug pagpangawkaw sa mga langyaw’ng monopolyo kapitalista sa atong nasudnong patrimonya.

Malacanang’s approval and issuance of the ECC for the Xstrata-SMI gold-copper project in Tampakan is a plot hatched in hell. Pnoy is inexcusably accountable for this barefaced and traitorous act. He has proven once more his subservience to his real bosses -- the big landlords, big comprador bourgeoisie and foreign monopoly capitalists that includes the large-scale miners. His assertion of the ECC also shows that his overhyped “matuwid na daan” (righteous path) is a bare and futile posturing conditioned to pave way for foreign encroachment and plundering of our national patrimony.

NPA expresses gratitude for the successful operation

With clenched fists, we wish to express our warmest gratitude to all the masses and friends who lent all-out support in the successful operation against Del Monte Phils. Inc. and Dole-Stanfilco last February 19, 2013. The success of the offensive actions showed most overwhelmingly the breadth and depth of the mass base we have attained so far for the intensification of our guerrilla warfare. We congratulate and salute the NPA commanders and Red fighters who carried out this operation painstakingly.



Amidst the synchronized attacks of different NPA units covering over 50-kilometer span, the surprised armed security guards, reactionary armed forces and police and their intelligence units were rendered deaf and blind.

Tungkulin ng Partido at ng rebolusyonaryong kilusan na ilantad ang reaksyunaryong eleksyon bilang huwad na demokratikong sistema na bahagi ng pagpapanatili ng mapagsamantala at mapang-aping sistema.

Ang reaksyunaryong eleksyon sa Pilipinas ay pampulitikang karnabal na isinasagawa kada tatlong taon. Agaw-pansin dito ang mga payasong pulitikong nagpapanggap na tagapagtaguyod sa interes ng mamamayan. Inaagaw nito ang atensyon ng mamamayan mula sa kanilang pinakamabibigat na suliraning sosyo-ekonomiko at hinahainan ng mga huwad na pangako ng reporma sa ilalim ng naghaharing sistema.

Pinuri at binati ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas (PKP) ang Bagong Hukbong Bayan (BHB) sa matagumpay ng paglulunsad ng sabay-sabay na pagreyd sa malalaking multinasyunal na plantasyon sa Bukidnon.

The people's government confronts Tan political dynasty in Western Samar for serious crimes

Feb. 20, 2013

The National Democratic Front-Eastern Visayas said today that the People's Democratic Government is confronting the Tan political dynasty in Western Samar for serious crimes against the people and the revolutionary movement. “The Tan political clan headed by Rep. Mila Tan in Western Samar is preparing to continue its hold on on the top elective positions in the province in the coming May elections,” said NDF-EV spokesperson Fr. Santiago Salas. “But the Tan family today is being held accountable by the people's government for gross corruption, abetting human rights violations, and collaborating with the military's “counterinsurgency” campaign. These serious crimes are grounds to deny entry to political candidates from the Tan family in areas under the jurisdiction of revolutionary authorities.”

Kinukundena namin ang pagbabanta ni Lt. Col. Toribio sa mga sibilyan

Pebrero 19, 2013

NAKABABAHALA ang garapalan at walang-pakundangang pagbabanta ni 31st IB commander Lt. Col. Teody Toribio sa mga sibilyan. Sa mismong programa niya sa radyo nitong Pebrero 17, di kukulangin sa limampung ordinaryong mamamayan sa iba’t ibang bayan sa Sorsogon ang tuwiran niyang pinangalanan at pinagbintangang mga tauhan o di kaya’y “poste” ng NPA.

Nakapangangamba ito dahil ganitong-ganito rin ang ginagawa noon ng berdugong si Gen. Jovito Palparan para markahan ang mga sibilyan para sa likidasyon ng mga death squad ng AFP.
