NPA warns of more operations in Agusan vs. abusers of revolutionary policies on environment, ancestral domain

August 23, 2013

More punitive actions shall be meted out by the New People's Army to the reactionary armed forces and capitalist invaders in Loreto and other towns in Agusan del Sur to defend the masses from encroachment, human rights atrocities and dislocation.

It is only proper and rightful on the part of the Lumad Manobos and peasant masses to stand up and defend themselves against the onslaught of landgrabbing and plunder of their ancestral lands. That they shield their families from the abuses of the Philippine Army and evacuate to safer sanctuaries like Davao City reflect their independent tenacity and militant struggle to defend what is rightly theirs. As they expose the gross neglect and reactionary stance of civilian authorities like Gov. Eddiebong Plaza and Mayor Dario Otaza, they are rightfully holding the latter accountable for the torture, intimidation, and reign of terror perpetrated by the enemy.

Mariing kinokondena ng Santos Binamera Command ang ekstra-hudisyal na pamamaslang (EJK) kay Adan Cantar, sibilyang magsasaka ng tropang 2nd IBPA. Binaril-patay si Adan Cantar sa kanyang bahay sa Brgy. Sinungtan, Guinobatan, Albay nitong alas-7 ng gabi, Agosto 22, 2013 ng tatlong armadong tropang militar. Ang bahay ng biktima ay halos 1 kilometro lamang ang layo mula sa tropa ng PDT, 2nd IBPA sa parehong baranggay.

Ang Brgy. Sinungtan ay isa sa '11 upland baranggays' ng bayan ng Guinobatan na dalawang taon ng saklaw ng Peace and Development Team Operation (PDT) ng 2nd IBPA. Ang PDT ay ang bagong katawagan sa dating operasyong RSOT sa ilalim ng anti-mamamayang Oplan Bayanihan. Mula Hulyo 2011, sa pagsimula ng PDT operations ng 2nd IBPA sa Albay, naitala ang maraming kaso ng mga "human rights violations", kasabay na ang mga pamamaslang, pambubugbog at pananakot laban sa mga sibilyang mamamayan ng Guinobatan.

Aquino abolished PDAF, but strengthened "pork barrel" system of political patronage--CPP

Information Bureau
Communist Party of the Philippines
August 24, 2013

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today denounced Benigno Aquino III for "attempting to mislead and placate the Filipino people by announcing yesterday the abolition of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) but further institutionalizing and in fact strengthening the pork barrel system of political patronage."

"Aquino's announcement abolishing the PDAF was clearly an attempt to preempt the scheduled Luneta demonstration on August 26," said the CPP. "He is feigning support for the people's clamor to end the pork barrel system. In fact, Aquino is defending it by claiming that it can be reformed."

Sinusuportahan ng mga rebolusyonaryong pwersa sa pamumuno ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas (PKP) ang panawagan ng mamamayang Pilipino laban sa ipinapanukalang makadayuhan, anti-mamamayan, tiwali’t bulok na programa ni Aquino ng paggastos sa kabang-yaman ng bayan sa susunod na taon.

Matapos ang tatlong taon, said na ang bisa ng mga salita at hungkag na programang pampasiklab ni Aquino. Ang kaliwa’t kanang pagtuligsa sa panukalang badyet ni Aquino para sa 2014 ay nagpapamalas na di na sila…

Department of Agriculture responsible for landgrabbing, environmental destruction in Mt. Sinaka

For threatening to damage a major source of drinking water in Arakan and parts of Davao City, and dislocating thousands of peasants in the process, Guerrilla Front 53 operatives under the Mt. Apo Sub-regional Command-New People’s Army burned five heavy equipments of a dam construction project of the US-Aquino regime’s Department of Agriculture, August 18 at 2pm.

The project is linked to a planned stockfarm pasture land program in Mt. Sinaka watershed area and part of the 4,100 hectares of University of the Philippines (UP) Mindanao Reservation at Brgy. Datu Ladayon, Arakan town, North Cotabato.

Without even bothering to secure a token environmental compliance certificate from the reactionary regime’s own environment agency, project proponents have went on to pursue the dam construction, at the expense of Mt. Sinaka, an important watershed area that is also home to wildlife, rich forests and endangered species.

CPP supports widespread opposition to Aquino's 2014 budget and clamor to end pork barrel

Communist Party of the Philippines
August 20, 2013

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) supports the Filipino people's opposition to the Aquino regime's National Expenditure Program and proposed General Appropriations for 2014. As in previous years, Aquino's 2014 national budget is the epitome of corruption, national wastage, total abandonment of the people's welfare and complete subservience to the interests of foreign big banks and capitalists.

The CPP expresses full support to the groundswelling demand of the Filipino people to end the pork barrel system. Hundreds of billions of pesos of public funds are allocated to so-called "development assistance" and "special purposes." These funds line up the pockets of reactionary politicians through kickbacks and bribes.

Despite widespread clamor from the democratic sectors, Aquino has stubbornly refused to put an end to the pork barrel system. He and members of his ruling clique know full well that the bigger funds allocated for "development assistance", the more that they will cooperate and remain silent even in the grossest forms of bureaucratic corruption and thievery.
