I was arrested four years ago – on Black Valentine’s Day – on the eve of the long-stalled resumption of the formal peace talks between the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) and the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP/GPH).

The principal agenda in the would-be resumption of the formal peace talks was supposed to center on the second of the four substantive agenda in the NDFP-GRP/GPH peace talks, i.e., on Comprehensive Socio-Economic Reforms (CASER).

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today said that the Filipino people are demanding the full revelation of the role played by the US military and Benigno Aquino III in planning, executing and bungling the January 25 Mamasapano operation. Over the past few days, the Filipino people have been closely monitoring the public hearings being conducted by the Senate and House of Representatives which are looking into the incident.

On January 25, close to 400 police operatives under the PNP Special Action Force (SAF) carried out an operation to neutralize Zulkfili Bin Hir alias Marwan who has been included by the US government "list of terrorists" and who carries a bounty of $6 million funded by the US State Department. An ensuing gunbattle between the police forces and armed Moro fighters in the area resulted in the deaths of 44 police forces, 18 MILF fighters, several BIFF men and at least five civilians.

NATATAKOT tumestigo ang kaisa-isang saksi sa pagdukot ng mga sundalo ng reaksyunaryong gobyerno kay Edwin Anuran, dating myembro ng NPA, na hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa rin inililitaw ng mga salarin.

Si Elena Gacos Estañol, isang konsehal ng Barangay San Jose, Bulusan, Sorsogon ay kasama ni Anuran nang dukutin sila ng mga sundalo noong Enero 30. Halos 24 oras na hinawakan ng militar si Estañol bago siya pakawalan kinabukasan. Bilang tanging saksi sa pangyayari, siya ang makapagpapatunay na mga tropa ng reaksyunaryong gobyerno ang dumukot sa kanila at patuloy na nagdedetine kay Anuran.

Hold The US-Aquino Regime Accountable For The Mamasapano Tragedy

Ka Frank Fernandez
Spokesperson, NDF Negros
February 9, 2015

National Democratic Front – Negros Island, highly condemns the Mamasapano bloody encounter and hold accountable the US – Aquino Regime for sacrificing the lives of both the government troops, the PNP-SAF and its supposed ally, the MILF and its adversary, the BIFF and even the civilians and an American soldier, all for the glory of the US war on terror. The act is an utter disregard of the country’s national sovereignty. And for his pathetic and  insensitive gestures and remarks after, especially when he opted to be present in the inauguration of the Mitsubishi plant in Bataan, rather than attend the arrival of the fallen SAF 44.

How can the President - Commander-in-Chief direct a war without a proper chain of command, careful planning, proper coordination, trust and confidence in its machinery that would do battle against the perceived enemy of the state?  Is it all because of its lack of trust and confidence to the AFP, PNP and some government officials or is it because of their greed for the almost $9 million bounty reward for the killing of Marwan, that P-noy entrusted the mission to its  suspended best friend, Allan Purisima rather than to the proper officials? Aquino only aggravated the rift or the professional jealousy between the PNP and AFP - an act befitting of the country’s president.

NDF-EV demands release of arrested civilians, end to militarization

National Democratic Front of the Philippines--Eastern Visayas
Pebrero 9, 2015

The National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) in Eastern Visayas today demanded the release of civilians illegally arrested by the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) as well as the ending of militarization in Basey, Samar and other parts of the region. "We condemn the illegal arrest and detention by AFP troops of Elpidio Romangca and Artemio Estueta, both civilian residents of Brgy. Mabini, Basey, Samar," said Fr. Santiago "Ka Sanny" Salas, NDF-EV spokesperson. "We call for their immediate release based on the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHRIHL) signed by the NDFP and the Government of the Philippines. In the spirit of moving the peace process forward, we demand that the Aquino regime respect the CARHRIHL and end militarization in Basey and elsewhere in the region.

"Despite being a calamity area whose residents are still struggling to recover after having been struck by supertyphoon Yolanda and three successive typhoons, Brgy. Mabini is now being subjected to the Aquino government's oppressive militarization. The military imposes a curfew and forces the residents  to comply with a logbook system hence restricting their movements, sowing fear among the peasants who are now afraid to go to their farms. Thus the residents suffer even more in addition to the effects of successive typhoons, and hunger is now widespread.

An Open Letter to the Public Officials of Negros Occidental and Oriental on the Issue of One Island – One Region

NDFP - Negros
February 1, 2015

Solidarity greetings!

The entire revolutionary movement in the Island of Negros – the Communist Party of the  Philippines, the New People’s Army and the National Democratic Front highly commends you  and your group for your firm stand against the ambitious and devious One Island Region project of the ruling Marañon clique of Negros Occidental.  With utmost consideration for the welfare of the people of the Island of Negros, you  staunchly stand by your conviction despite pressures!

No amount of flowery words and sweet talkings can ever conceal the evil motives of this Marañon – Coscolluela clique in espousing such a project. For obvious reason, this project is nothing but an extension of the insatiable greed for political and economic powers of the wily comprador bourgeoisie –landlords, led by the fascist, “wolf in sheep’s clothing” governor, Alfredo Marañon, Jr. and his herd  of  docile and hungered clique. Not contented with the wealth they had amassed  in the Occidental side, now, they aspire to encompass the whole of the Island.

Aquino III criminally accountable for ordering 5th PNP SAF to breach Bangsamoro area to please his U.S. boss' “War on Terror”

The NDFP-Mindanao wishes to extend its sympathies to the bereaved families and friends of the fallen 44 PNP SAF troops and 13 paramilitary men, as well as to the families and comrades of the martyrs both of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) and the Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces (BIAF), and to all the civilian casualties in the January 25, 2015 battle in the vicinity of Sitio Inogog, Brgy. Tukanalipao, Mamasapano, Maguindanao, when the PNP-SAF breached the territory of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Movement (BIFM) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).  We wish also to express our concern for all the displaced Moro population in the area.

In the battle between the attacking 5th SAF battalion on one side and the defending BIFF, BIAF and the fighting masses on the opposing side, the PNP SAF took the heaviest toll with 44 of its men killed in action, aside from the 13 armed local paramilitary members in its company who were also among the fatalities.  On the other hand, the BIFF sustained 6 dead, the BIAF, 18, while 3 civilians were killed when hit by bullets mainly coming from the intruding PNP SAF.  The number of wounded from both sides was also high.
