The National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) conveys its warmest greetings of comradeship and solidarity to the Communist Party of India (Maoist), its People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army, the People’s Militia, and the revolutionary masses of India, on the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) on 21 September 2014.
All the eighteen revolutionary mass organizations allied in the National Democratic Front of the Philippines and the Filipino revolutionary masses join you, our comrades-in-arms, in celebrating your 10th anniversary.
We join you in honoring the almost two thousand five hundred revolutionary martyrs who have sacrificed their lives for your revolutionary cause since your Party’s founding ten years ago, who include hundreds of great leaders of the revolution, from the topmost level of your party to its basic levels, the scores of valiant fighters of the PLGA, and many among the masses.
Together with other revolutionaries throughout the world, we rejoice at the brilliant victories and achievements you have attained in the last ten years of fierce revolutionary struggle. We are inspired by the establishment of Revolutionary People’s Committees in the guerrilla bases of Central and Eastern India. These organs of political power are, as you declare, the beginning of building a democratic, sovereign, federal people’s republic; self-reliant, just and equitable. The RPCs’ departments for defense, finance, agriculture, trade & industry, judicial, education and culture, health and social welfare, forest protection, and public relations, cover the wide range of revolutionary governmental functions.
We firmly support your call to the people of India to shatter the shackles of imperialism and feudalism, destroy the rotten system of the Indian state, and build the people’s future and that of the country with their own hands!
The revolutionary Filipino people, like you, are waging a people’s war against US imperialism and the local exploiting classes. We too fight to destroy imperialism, feudalism and bureaucrat capitalism! After forty five years of fierce revolutionary struggle, our revolutionary forces, the Communist Party of the Philippines, the New People’s Army, the National Democratic Front of the Philippines and the revolutionary masses are now operating in substantial portions of 71 provinces out a total 81 provinces in the country. We too are building organs of political power which form the people’s democratic government.
We deeply appreciate your firm support for our people’s war. We too stand in firm solidarity with your people’s war. We are determined to further strengthen the bonds of solidarity between our peoples and our revolutionary forces.
We extend our earnest revolutionary wishes to you in the Communist Party of India (Maoist), your People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army and the revolutionary masses in India for ever greater victories and achievements in your people’s war!
