Communist Party of the Philippines
The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) conveys its warmest revolutionary greetings to the leadership and entire membership of the Partido Comunista Revolucionario del Uruguay on the 41st anniversary of its founding! We greet you on behalf of the New People’s Army (NPA), the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) and other revolutionary forces in our country.
We extend our heartfelt congratulations to you for persevering in using Marxism, Leninism and Maoism as your guiding ideology in leading the revolutionary struggles of the Uruguayan proletariat and people.
Your poster for your 41st founding anniversary raises high the banner of your revolutionary martyrs. Indeed, the sacrifice and total commitment and service of our revolutionary martyrs have laid the foundation of the growth, consolidation and expansion of our respective revolutions. We too are celebrating our 45th founding anniversary on 26 December 2013.
We are comrades-in-arms. Like you, we are guided by the proletarian revolutionary theory of Marxism, Leninism and Maoism. We are likewise fighting against US imperialism and local reactionaries, the big landlords and comprador bourgeoisie for the national and social liberation of the Filipino people.
We congratulate you for the militant strikes and mass actions of the teachers, students and other working people for just wages and other civil and political rights. We are one with you in opposing the government policy of surrendering the national sovereignty to imperialists and allowing the destruction of the environment and pollution of the soil, thus devastating the people’s livelihood and causing their mass displacement. Like you, we are fighting against destructive foreign mining, especially open-pit mining, which pollutes the waters and the soil and destroys the livelihood, the health and production of the peasants, workers and indigenous people.
As you well know, the Philippines has been struck by the supertyphoon Haiyan.. Thousands lost their lives, millions are homeless, many thousands missing. We condemn the world’s capitalist polluters for causing global warming. We condemn the Aquino government for allowing foreign mining, logging and agricultural corporations to destroy our environment. The Aquino regime has plundered public funds. It did not carry out any pre-disaster preparations. After the disaster, it neglected providing food, water, medicines and other relief to the people. .
As in Uruguay, the Filipino people are rising up in great numbers to condemn the Aquino regime and US imperialism. Like you, we continue to wage the struggle for the people and the revolution.
Long live the Partido Comunista Revolucionario del Uruguay!
Long live the Uruguayan proletariat and people!
Down with US imperialism and the local exploiting classes!
Long live the revolutionary solidarity between the Uruguayan people and the Filipino people!
