The Kabataang Makabayan (KM, Patriotic Youth) held a lightning protest rally today, together with other allied revolutionary organizations of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP), in celebration of the 46th anniversary of the New People’s Army on 29 March 2015.
KM also resonates the call for the Filipino youth and people to rise up against the anti-people, corrupt and rotten system presided over by the US-Aquino regime.
The current debacle over the Mamasapano incident could not anymore be escaped by the US puppet regime of Aquino, despite the chain of lies and public deception it employs in order to escape direct accountability. Aquino has been exposed, and he is hell-bent on swaying public opinion by employing cheap propaganda tricks like showbiz personalities and pathetic appeals to emotion, even as he scampers to issue one presidential speech after another that cannot in any way assuage the people’s disgust and hatred.
The Mamasapano operation was planned and pushed by the US to Aquino and his ilk in its so-called ‘war on terror’. Aquino surrendered our national sovereignty to the US, violated his chain of command in favor of personal friendship and allegiance, mounted the death-bound operation that included civilians, and showed flagrant arrogance in attacking the areas controlled by the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, which has a ceasefire agreement with the Aquino regime.
In the midst of public clamor for accountability and justice, the Aquino regime has instead opted for political vindictiveness by launching an all-out war in Mindanao that has now displaced hundreds of thousands. The traumatized communities who massively fled their homes and livelihood now suffer the same plight suffered by those displaced by Aquino’s all-out military offensives in Zamboanga.
The KM calls on the Filipino youth to rise and join the peoples mounting protests against the corrupt, incorrigible mendacious, fascist, puppet and anti-people US-Aquino regime. Millions of Filipino youth are out of school and unemployed. The few who could study suffer ever-rising tuition and other fees and bear the brunt because of the US-Aquino government’s failure to deliver education and other social services as a right of the people. There is no real hope for the Filipino youth and people in this rotten system dominated by ruling classes of big compradors and landlords like Aquino and maintained by their US imperialist master.
Together with the people, the Filipino youth must stand and build the strong ouster movement against the rotten semifeudal and semicolonial system maintained and represented by the Aquino regime. The Filipino youth, armed with vigor, energy, skills and talent should selflessly offer its best years in service to the people and for genuine revolutionary change. The Communist Party of the Philippines lead millions of the revolutionary people in building the people’s government in the countryside and thousands of revolutionary base communities, conducts agrarian revolution and leads economic, cultural, political programs that genuinely benefit the people.
In the countryside, more and more youth join the New People’s Army, the genuine people’s army that launches sure blows against the fascist armed machinery of this rotten system. KM calls on the Filipino youth to rise up and join the ever growing people’s army that will crush this rotten system!
Long live the 46th Anniversary of the New People’s Army! Long live the CPP-NPA-NDFP!
Filipino youth, serve the people!
Go to the countryside, join the New People’s Army!
Overthrow the rotten system and rule of imperialism, feudalism and bureaucrat capitalism!
Overthrow the corrupt, puppet, anti-people and fascist US-Aquino regime!
