The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) calls on the Filipino people to oppose so-called training programs being conducted by US special forces for local police forces after recent revelations point to the direct role played by the US military in the instigation, planning and conduct of the bloody Mamasapano operation last January 25.

The CPP issued this statement amid another round of training programs being conducted since yesterday by US Marines with the 6th Special Action Battalion of the Philippine National Police-Special Action Force (PNP-SAF) in Sagay City, Negros Occidental.

NDFP-NEMR to release POWs on February 26

The National Democratic Front of the Philippines in North Eastern Mindanao Region (NDFP-NEMR) confirms the release on 26 February 2015 of the three (3) Prisoners of War (POW), namely PO1 JORIE M.  AMPER, PO3 DEMOCRITO B. POLVOROSA, and PO1 MARICHEL U. CONTEMPLO, who are all currently in the custody of the New People’s Army’s Front Operational Command 16. The NDFP decided to forego the normal process of preliminary investigation and possible trial.

The release of the three POWs have been deferred thrice, first in November in time for the Pope’s visit in the Philippines, the second during the Christmas holidays and the third on the middle of January. The reason for the suspensions was the refusal of the Armed Forces of the Philippines to temporarily withdraw their troops in the target release area. The halfhearted efforts of the government’s Provincial Crisis Committee lead by Surigao Norte Gov. Sol Matugas failed to give any assurance for the safe release of the POWs.

Warm greetings!

The recent turn of events challenges you to make a stand.

The near-annihilation of the 84th PNP-SAF troops in Maguindanao shows the division and dissension of your ranks in the AFP and PNP. This is how it happened: under US orders for the capture of an alleged terrorist under the framework of its “war on terror”, your commander-in-chief, Benigno Aquino III, violated your chain of command and all due processes, through a faction of generals led by General Purisima. Despite the ongoing ceasefire and peace negotiations between the government of the Philippines and MILF, Aquino ran over all agreements to implement the US orders. Now, he and his officials exhaust all efforts to wash their hands of culpability after wasting the lives of 44 SAF personnel.

This incident clearly indicates the ineptness of your commander-in-chief in mobilizing your forces. He only complies with the dictates of his imperialist master and his local instigators. Now it has resulted in endless bickering and finger-pointing among military and civilian officials, and has undermined the morale of the whole organization of AFP and PNP.

Open letter to patriotic soldiers and policemen

Patriotic officers and men,

The death of 44 PNP-SAF troops in Maguindanao is an unfortunate incident. We sympathize with the families of those killed in this worthless “counterterrorist operation” which wasted the lives of ordinary policemen. Benigno Aquino III has clearly taken orders from his US imperialist master whose “global war on terror” he fully supports.

Adding insult to injury, military and civilian officials of the Aquino government seek to put all the blame on a few generals and to discredit the MILF. They are now preoccupied in their effort to shield Aquino from his culpability.

NPA-NCMR launches six military actions in January

Troops of the 4th Infantry Division suffered at least 11 casualties in six different offensive actions launched by the New People’s Army in North Central Mindanao Region in the first month of 2015. At least six were killed and five were wounded among AFP and paramilitary forces, counting among the casualties a military asset, while NPA suffered no casualties.

Despite the 4th ID’s insistence that it strictly abides by the SOMO order of their puppet president, their military operations in the countryside continue unhampered. The masses have had no respite from the AFP’s terrorism even during the traditional holidays and the visit of the Catholic Pope.

Hinikayat ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas (PKP) ang sambayanang Pilipino na batikusin ang patakaran ng paglilihim na ginagawa ng Senado kaugnay sa pagkasangkot ng US sa operasyon sa Mamasapano.

Sa huling araw ng pampublikong pagdinig kahapon sa Senado, nabulgar sa testimonya ni PNP Dir. Getulio Napeñas ang malaking bahaging ginampanan ng militar ng US sa pangunguna, pagsasanay, pagbibigay ng mga kagamitan at pagsasagawa ng operasyon ng pulisya upang patayin si Zulkifli Bin Hir (Marwan) sa Mamasapano. Ang militar ng US ang nagbigay ng "pakete ng paniktik" hinggil kay Marwan, ani Napeñas.

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today urged the Filipino people to denounce the policy of secrecy adopted by the Senate regarding US involvement in the Mamasapano operation.

Nanawagan ang Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas sa sambayanang Pilipino na itakwil ang mga operasyon para sa pagtatakip na ginagawa ng Malacañang sa pakikipagsabwatan sa mga senador at kongresman at mga upisyal ng pulisya at militar na maka-Aquino.

"Ang halatang inareglong pagbubunyag sa publiko ng diumanong mga palitan ng text noong Enero 25 sa pagitan ni Aquino at ng suspendidong hepe ng pulisya na si Alan Purisima, ang paborito niyang alipures na upisyal ng pulisya ay malinaw na bahagi ng pagtatakip upang ilibre sa sisi si Aquino sa anumang pananagutan sa palpak na operasyon sa Mamasapano," anang PKP.

NDF-EV to military: Aquino regime, not the NPA, likely to meet premature end

Feb. 24, 2015

The National Democratic Front-Eastern Visayas today dismissed the 8th Infantry Division-Philippine Army's claim that the New People's Army is over in Samar, and said it is the Aquino regime that is likely to end prematurely because of the Mamasapano debacle and other burning issues. "The New People's Army is looking forward to the threshold of the strategic stalemate in the people's war in one or two years," said Fr. Santiago "Ka Sanny" Salas, NDF-EV spokesperson. "On the other hand,  the commander-in-chief of the military, Benigno Aquino III,  is in real danger of not finishing his term because of his proven incompetence and unconcern for the lives of the people as well as his own troops. Even the military and police are at each other's throats over the Mamasapano incident. Thus the NPA is confident in fighting forward and supporting the people in the struggle to end an insufferable regime."

Fr. Salas added that the military is supporting an unpopular regime, while the NPA has the support of the people. "The 8th ID should be ashamed of itself and start questioning who it is fighting for when it claims Oplan Bayanihan as a success. For the US imperialist that designed Oplan Bayanihan?  For the commander-in-chief Aquino who is a US puppet with no qualms in turning his troops into cannon fodder and repeating Mamasapano over and over again? On the other hand, the NPA is fighting for national sovereignty and the democratic interests of the people, and it will never be defeated because it bears the dignity and freedom of Filipinos at heart."

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today called on the Filipino people to reject the coverup operations being carried out by Malacañang in connivance with pro-Aquino senators and congressmen and officials of the police and military.

"The contrived public revelation of the supposed text exchanges last January 25 between Aquino and suspended police chief Alan Purisima, his favorite lackey police official is clearly part of the coverup to exculpate Aquino of any culpability over the botched Mamasapano operation," said the CPP.

Patalsikin ang Kriminal na Rehimeng US-Aquino! Itayo ang Transisyong Gubyernong Bayan!

Matindi ang desperasyon ng rehimeng US-Aquino na takasan ang pananagutan nito sa madugong sagupaan sa Mamasapano na kumitil ng mahigit 60 buhay mula sa hanay ng PNP-SAF, MILF, BIFF at mga sibilyan. Habang patuloy na nauungkat ang tuwirang pakikilahok ni Aquino sa ilalim na rin ng pagmamando ng imperyalistang US sa tinaguriang “Oplan Wolverine,” itinigil ang isinasagawang imbestigasyon sa Kongreso. Sa isang pahayag na bumabaluktot sa nauna nitong pagtanggi sa partisipasyon ng Amerika sa nabulilyasong operasyon, ipinagtanggol ng Malacanang ang pagkilos ng mga pwersang Amerikano sa Pilipinas sa ngalan ng notoryus na proyekto ng “war on terrorism”. Sa gayon, habang patuloy na nailalantad ang mga kasinungalingan at panlilinlang ng rehimeng US-Aquino, lalo lamang lumiligwak ang dugo mula sa mga nakakuyom nitong palad.
