In celebration of the forthcoming 46th founding anniversary of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP), around 50 members of NDFP-ST held a lightning rally in San Pablo City, Laguna to hail the people’s victories in waging revolutionary armed struggle for 46 years.
“The NDFP-ST expresses its highest salute to the CPP for leading the Filipino masses and revolutionary forces in advancing the fight for national liberation and democracy. Likewise, it is also fitting to give our highest accolade to all heroes and martyrs of the national democratic revolution and Red Fighters who have unselfishly offered their lives for the people and the revolution,” said Patnubay de Guia, Spokesperson of NDFP-ST.
At around 9:00am, uniformed members of NDFP-ST in Mao caps and red chinos marched along the busy streets of San Pablo City with placards and streamers. Member organizations of the NDFP-ST such as the Kabataang Makabayan, Makabayang Kilusan ng Bagong Kababaihan (MAKIBAKA) and COMPATRIOTS gave their solidarity speeches, while a cultural performance highlighted the event.
“In almost five decades of leading the people’s war, the CPP has gained more strength as exemplified by the expanding and deepening mass base and organs of people’s democratic government. This is amid the continued and intensified attacks to revolutionary forces thru the Armed Forces of the Philippines’ (AFP) military and psywar operations, in line with the government’s counter insurgency program Oplan Bayanihan,” explained de Guia.
According to de Guia, the CPP’s ever-growing strength and revolutionary victories are slap to the face of the AFP and the Aquino government who have long-been boasting of their “ability” to neutralize the revolutionary forces. “The Filipino people will continue to resist the most brutal attacks and counter-revolutionary efforts by the Aquino regime and his imperialist master, the United States,” stressed de Guia.
“The unyielding and worsening crises of the ruling system are more than enough reason for the exploited masses to join the armed revolution. We must expand our revolutionary mass base and Party membership, and intensify the guerrilla warfare in order to achieve strategic stalemate, and complete victory in the years to come,” ended de Guia.
Long live the People’s Democratic Revolution!
Long live the 46th Founding Anniversary of the Communist Party of the Philippines!
