Macapagal-Arroyo is prejudicing resumption of GRP-NDFP Peace Negotiations

By Prof. JOSE MARIA SISON
NDFP Chief Political Consultant

The military, police, paramilitary and "vigilante" forces of the US-directed Macapagal-Arroyo regime launch killing operations with impunity against the revolutionary forces and the people.

Romulo Kintanar had too many rivals & enemies in the criminal world of military & police operatives

By Prof. JOSE MARIA SISON
NDFP Chief Political Consultant

It is idle and malicious for anyone to speculate or insinuate that I have something to do with the killing of Romulo Kintanar. I am being given too much credit.

NDFP Chief Political Consultant

I speak as one of the national leaders specially mentioned and invited to join a government of national unity, which has been proposed by Speaker Jose de Venecia and approved by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

President Macapagal-Arroyo and Speaker de Venecia might have all the good intentions in the world in putting forward the concept of a government of national unity.
