The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today disputed claims by the Aquino regime that the Filipino people benefited from the diversion of funds under Malacañang's Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) and dismissed such as vain attempts to justify the Aquino regime's anomalous realignment of as much as P177 billion in public funds.

The CPP pointed out that Aquino's disbursement of funds under the DAP did not help resolve the Filipino people's outstanding problems of unemployment, low wages, landlessness, homelessness, poverty and rising prices which have continued to worsen under the Aquino regime.

On Mayor Mario Okinlay’s death

Bullets from a sniper team of the New People’s Army under the South-Central Bukidnon Sub-Regional Command ended the life of the rabid counterrevolutionary mayor Mario Okinlay of Impasug-ong, Bukidnon at 8:00 AM of July 2, 2014. Okinlay’s convoy of three four-wheeled vehicles and 20 motorcycles with 50 8th IB PA troops, six police officers and civilian employees of the municipal government, as well as Lt. Col. Landingin, commanding officer of 8th IB, and Impasug-ong Chief of Police Pinohan on board were on their way home from Barangay Bontongon.

What Okinlay and the reactionary AFP flaunted as peace and development activities in Impasug-ong barrios are, in reality, an implementation of the US-Aquino regime’s counterinsurgency strategy, Oplan Bayanihan, and essentially consist of psy-war and forced surrender of civilians. He has almost completed the pulong-pulong rounds in all 13 barangays of Impasug-ong together with the 8th IB which has been conducting COPD operations in the area since October 2013. Okinlay was unmindful of CARHRIHL and the international humanitarian law. As a local tyrant of Impasug-ong, he has given the reactionary troops of 8th IB full backing to live among civilians, occupy public buildings in a number of barrios, putting up checkpoints wherever and whenever they see fit. In some barrios, they starve the civilian population by unjustly regulating rice procurement to five kilos per family per week, and violate their freedom of movement and means of sustenance by unreasonably imposing the farmers’ work schedule from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM daily.

Filipino masses are not stupid. Aquino should stop terror threat charade

Rubi del Mundo
NDFP-Southern Mindanao
July 3, 2014

The National Democratic Front Southern Mindanao slams the early politicking of the US-Aquino regime as demonstrated by its recent irresponsible, careless and clearly concocted announcement of terror threats in Davao City. Using as mouthpiece the AFP Eastern Mindanao Command, Benigno Aquino, III and his gang led by Mar Roxas have exposed themselves as having aligned their political interests for 2016 with that of the United States Imperialism. Not content with approving the highly irregular and grossly anti-people Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA), the puppet US-Aquino regime patently wants Davao City to be its war launch pad of the South—and be popular in the process, a popularity enough to translate into presidential votes.

Binabati ng PKP ang sambayanang Pilipino sa desisyon ng Korte Suprema laban sa DAP

Translation: CPP congratulates Filipino people for SC decision against DAP

Ipinararating ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas (PKP) ang pagbati nito sa samabayanang Pilipino kaugnay sa desisyon kahapon ng Korte Suprema na nagdedeklarang labag sa konstitusyon ang Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP), bagay na makapaggpapasikad sa pakikibaka para sa ganap na pagtatanggal ng sistemang pork barrel at para papanagutin ang rehimeng Aquino sa pandarambong at korapsyon.

Tumiklop ang Korte Suprema kahapon sa dumadaluyong na paglaban sa DAP at idineklara itong paglabag sa konstitusyon ng Pilipinas ng 1987. Gayunpaman, upang iiwas si Benigno Aquino III sa posibleng impeachement (o pagsasakdal sa kongreso) at sa kriminal na kaso pagkatapos ng kanyang termino, ipinahayag ng Korte Suprema na ang desisyon nito ay pumapatungkol lamang sa "mga ispesipikong bahagi" ng DAP, na maaaring gamitin bilang ligal na maniobra ni Aquino sa pananagutan. May usap-usapan din na idedeklara ng Korte Suprema na ang kriminal na pananagutan sa paggamit ng DAP ay aplikable lamang sa hinaharap.

NPA ambushes logging protector, abusive, anti-schools Army unit in Cateel

Two kilometers away from its command post, a platoon-sized advance command unit of the 67th Infantry Battalion was hit by the command detonated explosives of the New People’s Army, at 10am June 30 in Brgy. Aliwagwag, Cateel, Davao Oriental. Killed were five fascist soldiers and injured were six other members of the Army unit that is known to protect the province’s massive logging operations.

Huge logging operations in the East Coast are also backed by Gov. Corazon Malanyaon, Cong. Elmer Dayanghirang, and Cateel Mayor Camilo Nunez. Under the pretext of “logs retrieval operation” from a cutting permit released by the Department of Social Welfare and Development, unabated logging has flourished in an already disaster-ravaged and denuded territory. Millions of profits have been amassed by the abusive officials and the military while the masses in majority villages in the East Coast continue to suffer from loss of livelihood, homelessness, and disrupted education for more than a year after Supertyphoon Pablo struck and washed away their farms and houses in December 4, 2012.

CPP congratulates Filipino people for SC decision against DAP

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today extended its congratulations to the Filipino people over the decision yesterday by the Supreme Court declaring the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) as unconstitutional. which can serve to boost their struggle for the complete abolition of the pork barrel system and make the Aquino regime responsible for plunder and corruption.

The Supreme Court yesterday submitted to mounting opposition against the DAP and it as a violation of the 1987 Philippine constitution. However, in the hope of shielding Benigno Aquino III from possible impeachment and post-term criminal charges, the Supreme Court said its' decision pertains only to "specific parts" of the DAP, which can be used as a legal workaround for Aquino to avoid culpability. There is also talk that the Supreme Court will declare that criminal liability over the use of the DAP is applicable only to future transgressions.

Ikasa ang malawak at masidhing paglaban sa 830% pagtaas ng matrikula sa PUP; Ibasura ang neoliberal na patakaran ng Rehimeng US-Aquino sa edukasyon

Pambansang Komiteng Tagapagpagganap ng Kabataang Makabayan

Naglalagablab sa galit ang mga Iskolar ng Bayan ng Politeknikong Unibersidad ng Pilipinas matapos matuklasan ang panukala ng pamunuan ng pamantasan na itaas ang matrikula sa P100 kada yunit mula P12 kada yunit. Hindi pa kasama ang miscellaneous fees na aabot sa P3, 000 at iba pang bayarin tuwing enrollment na aabot sa P555. Sumatotal, huhuthot ng halos P5, 655 ang PUP sa bawat estudyante na may kabuuang 21 yunit kada semestre.

Katumbas ito ng pagtataboy ng PUP sa mga anak ng maralitang magsasaka at manggagawa na halos igapang na ang pag-aaral ng kani-kanilang anak, sa panahon na hindi maampat ang pagtaas ng presyo ng batayang bilihin tulad na lamang ng pagkain, habang nakapako sa di-nakabubuhay ang sahod.

Labanan ang Pagtaas ng Matrikula sa UP! Ibasura ang STS! Tutulan ang Kumersiyalisasyon ng Edukasyon

Mariing kinukundena ng Kabataang Makabayan ang pagtataksil ng gobyerno ni Aquino sa karapatan ng kabataan na magkaroon ng de-kalidad at abot-kayang edukasyon sa bansa. Ipinatupad ni Aquino at ng pamunuan ng UP ang mas mashol at kontra-estudyantent patakarang Socialized Tuition Scheme na nagtaas ng matrikula sa pamantasan sa P1,500 kada yunit.

Ang pagtaas ng matrikula sa Unibersidad ng Pilipinas at iba pang State Colleges and Universities (SUCs) sa bansa ay tulak ng mga neoliberal na patakaran sa edukasyon. Ang pamamayagpag ng STS, kasama ang iba pang patakaran tulad ng Academic Calendar Shift at K to 12 ay dapat suriin bilang bungkos na atake ng neoliberal na opensiba sa edukasyon at gayundin, atake sa oryentasyon ng kabataan bilang pwersa ng pagbabago at pag-asa ng bayan.

Hindi natutuwa ang samabayanang Pilipino sa mga palabas ng Hari ng Pork Barrel na si Aquino

Hunyo 30, 2104

Translation: The Filipino people are not amused by King Aquino's spectacle

Isang malaking palabas ng paglilitis sa mga pulitikong akusado sa pandarambong ang pinasimulan ng Hari ng Pork Barrel na si Benigno Aquino III para aliwin ang mamamayan at ilayo ang atensyon sa kanyang pananagutan sa buong burukrata kapitalistang iskema ng pagnanakaw sa kabang-bayan.

Sa nakaraang sampung araw, ipinakulong ni Haring Aquino ang dalawang senador--sina Ramon Revilla Jr at Jinggoy Estrada--at ang kanilang mga kasapakat na inakusahang nagbubulsa ng mga kikbak mula sa pondong pork barrel na nagkakahalaga ng daan-daang milyong piso. Nakaamba pang arestuhin ang isa pang senador sa mga susunod na araw. Subalit laking pagkayamot ng sambayanang Pilipino na bigyan ni Haring Aquino ng maka-uring pagpipitagan ang kapwa niyang mga burukrata kapitalista nang ilagak ang dalawang inarestong senador sa komportableng tila-dormaitoryong kwarto. Gayundin ang inaaasahang ipagkakaloob sa matandang si Enrile.

The Filipino people are not amused by King Aquino's spectacle

Communist Party of the Philippines
June 30, 2014

Pork Barrel King Benigno Aquino III is putting up a public spectacle to entertain the people and draw away attention from his own culpability in the entire bureaucrat capitalist scam to rob the people.

Over the past ten days, King Aquino has effected the incarceration of two senators--Ramon Revilla Jr and Jinggoy Estrada--and their cohorts accused of pocketing kickbacks from pork barrel funds amounting to hundreds of millions of pesos. Another accused senator is set to be arrested in the next few days. To the great displeasure of the Filipino people, King Aquino has extended ruling-class courtesy to his fellow bureaucrat capitalists, in having the two arrested senators confined in comfortable dormitory-like rooms. Similar elite courtesy is expected to be extended to the elderly Enrile.
