COPD ug mga peke nga surenderee--desperadong pagpanglingla sa AFP

Samot nga nagkadesperado ang AFP karong kapin duha ka tuig na lang ang nahabiling panahon sa implementasyon sa ilang Oplan Bayanihan. Sa kapakyas niini pagkab-ot sa mga target sa unang yugto sa OpBay (2010-2013), mas gipasubsub niini karon ang saywar nga component sa iyang triad operations, samtang padayong ginalunsad ang dinagkung operasyong militar ug pagpaniktik.

Karon, nabutyag na sab ang tinuod nga kinaiya sa Community Organizing for Peace and Development (COPD) isip instrumentong pang-saywar sa gipahigayon sa 8th IB PA nga usa ka kontra-NPA nga pulong-pulong sa Mayo 7 kung asa gihakot nila ang kapin-kon-kulang 200 ka mga lumulupyo sa mga baryo ug sityo sa Impasug-ong, Bukidnon. Giparada kini nga mga tawo isip mga NPA ug mga tigsuporta sa rebolusyonaryong kalihukan nga kuno “mibalik sa sabakan sa gubyerno.” Gipundok-pundok nila ang mga tumatambong sa matag komunidad ug gipadala og mga banner nga nagbiay-biay sa rebolusyonaryong kalihukan. Gipugos sab sila pagpasinggit-singgit og mga panawagan sa pagbagsak sa NPA.

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and all the revolutionary forces of the Filipino people are one in condemning the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA) signed by officials of the US and Philippine governments on April 28.

Aquino concealed the details of the negotiations and the terms of the agreement and fast-tracked its signing so he could present it as a gift to his visiting imperialist master Barack Obama.

AFP’s twisted hostage drama script in Comval is pure lie

Daniel Ibarra
Comval Davao Gulf Sub Regional Command-NPA

May 7, 2014

The New People’s Army has taken no hostages as maliciously reported by the AFP last weekend in Compostela Valley. AFP spokesperson Major General Domingo Tutaan was lying to his teeth when he said that the NPA was “hiding behind the skirts of civilians” and using them as “human shields.” Tutaan’s verbiage is clearly meant to conceal the AFP’s mounting defeats in the battlefield, their contempt and abuses against the struggling masses, and the abject futility of the Aquino regime’s counter-revolutionary policy, Oplan Bayanihan.

Escalating number of AFP casualties as a result of NPA’s tactical offensives against the Apex mining and its private army—the 9th Infantry Battalion and the 71st IB--in Maco, Maragusan and Mabini boundaries easily refutes Tutaan’s outrageous claims.  The NPA has earlier imposed punitive sanction against the Apex Mining in April 10, on the grounds of the company’s recidivist track record of violating environment safety regulations and people’s welfare policy of the People’s Democratic Government.

The NDF-FSMR condemns the abduction of Romeo “Ging-ging” Rivera perpetrated by the intelligence agents and operatives of 10th Infantry Division of the Philippine Army.

This ruthless doing is AFP’s desperate act to obviously retaliate the military defeats recently suffered by the fascist troops in FarSouth Mindanao such as the raid of Matan-ao Police Station and the ambush of 39th IB troopers in Asbang, Matan-ao, Davao del Sur carried out by the NPA Guerilla Front 72 in March 10.

Translation: CPP denounces arrival of 3,000 US troops for Balikatan exercises

Binatikos ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas (PKP) ang pagdating ng hanggang 3,000 tropang pangkombat ng US sa Pilipinas na nakatakdang lumahok sa ika-30 magkasamang ehersisyong militar na Balikatan sa armadong pwersa ng Pilipinas.

Ang mga tropa ng US at sundalo ng AFP ay nakatakdang magsagawa ng pagpapaputok, maniobra gamit ang mga sasakyang amphibian (pwede sa lupa at tubig) at magkasamang ehersisyong pangkombat sa loob ng sunod na sampung araw sa Pampanga, Tarlac at Nueva Ecija. Idineploy din ang isang mas maliit na grupo ng mga sundalong Amerikano sa Albay upang magsagawa ng tinaguriang "mga aktibidad sa pantulong sibiko" subalit ang pinakalayunin ay ibayong palakasin ang mga pasilidad na pang-espiya ng US sa lugar.

Separate troops of the 50th IB have been successively ambushed by two units of the Alfredo Cesar Command of the New People's Army (NPA) - Ilocos Sur last May 1 and 2.  A total of seven Philippine Army troopers were killed while at least eight were wounded in the two ambushes.


On May 1, three troops of the 50th IB were killed while two were wounded when they were ambushed in Remedios, Cervantes, Ilocos Sur, less than a kilometer away from the battalion headquarters of the said Philippine Army unit.  And on May 2, reinforcing troops also of the 50th IB were again ambushed in barangay Malideg, Quirino, Ilocos Sur, about two kilometers from the battalion headquarters.  Four were killed while at least six were seriously wounded.  In both ambushes, the NPA units were able to withdraw safely without any casualties.These successful punitive actions are part of the CPP-NPA's campaign to render justice for the countless victims of human rights violations committed by the 50th IB and to punish the said battalion for its  utter subservience to the interest of large scale and destructive corporate mining.

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today denounced the arrival of up to 3,000 US combat troops in the Philippines that are set to participate in the 30th Balikatan joint military exercises with the Philippine armed forces.

A smaller contingent of American soldiers have also been deployed in Albay to conduct so-called "civic assistance activities" but are mostly intended to further strengthen US spy facilities in the area.

Kinukundena ng NDFP ang Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement bilang garapal na paglapastangan sa soberanya ng Pilipinas

Translation: NDFP condemns the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement as flagrant trampling on Philippine sovereignty

Mariing kinukundena ng National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) ang Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA) na nilagdaan ng rehimeng Aquino at ng United States of America bilang  garapal na paglapastangan sa soberanya at teritoryal na integridad ng Pilipinas.

Lihim itong pinag-usapan, itinago sa sambayanang Pilipino ang nilalaman at inilabas noon na lamang pinirmahan ito sa panahon ng pagbisita ng hepe ng imeryalistang US na si Barack Obama noong Abril 28, 2014. Pinahihintulutan ng EDCA ang walang hadlang na pagkapasok ng militar ng US at mga sibilyang tauhan at kontraktor at lahat ng uri ng kagamitan at ang paggamit ng tinaguriang Agreed Locations (mga lugar na pinagkasunduang bibigyan ng akses ang militar ng US) nang walang bayad saan mang bahagi ng bansa.
