We, the Communist Party of the Philippines and other revolutionary forces of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) convey our heartfelt condolences to the leadership and entire membership of the Revolutionary Communist Party of Argentina on the passing away of your beloved Secretary General OTTO VARGAS.

We join you in honoring your founder and leader who headed the foundation and construction of your Party. At the early age of 19, he was already a leader in the Communist Youth Federation. He participated in International Youth Festivals in Berlin, Budapest, Warsaw and Moscow.

In 1958 he went to Cuba and helped the Cuban revolutionary forces led by Fidel Castro. Later in 1960, he was part of the presidency of the First Latin American Youth Congress held in Havana and inaugurated by Che Guevara.

In the struggle between the Communist Party of China and the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, he firmly took the proletarian Marxist-Leninist  line of the Communist Party of China led by Comrade Mao Zedong.

During the crisis years under the dictatorship of General Videla, Comrade Otto Vargas firmly opposed the dictatorship. He gave the advice to the mothers of the disappeared victims to hold a moving demonstration in Plaza de Mayo in front of the Presidential Palace. With the photos of their sons and daughters, forcibly disappeared by the dictatorship, the Madres de la Plaza de Mayo demonstrated regularly. They became a symbol of resistance and defiance. They became an inspiration to other resistance fighters throughout the world.

Comrade Otto Vargas saw the importance and necessity that the working class, together with the peasantry, be the foundation of unity in the people’s struggle for liberation. He never separated himself from the exploited and oppressed.

We  have fond memories of Comrade Otto Vargas in meetings with him in the International Conference of Marxixt-Leninist Parties and Organizations and the International Seminar on Mao Zedong Thought. He was a staunch advocate of proletarian internationalism and at the same time the equality and independence of parties.

We cherish most his visit to the International Office of the NDFP in Utrecht, The Netherlands. He spent a few days with us. We recall the sharing and rich discussions he had with Comrade Jose Maria Sison, the Founding Chairman of the Communist Party of the Philippines and other comrades. We also deeply value the warm reception he gave to our comrades who visited Argentina for international gatherings on women’s issues and other matters.

We render the highest honors to Comrade Otto Vargas! We wish his comrades in the Revolutionary Communst Party of Argentina, and the workers, peasants and others among the masses he loved and served, much strength. May he inspire you to greater revolutionary courage! 

Long live the great legacy and inspiration of Comrade Otto Vargas!
Long live the revolutionaary struggle of the Argentinian people!
Long live the solidarity between the Argentinian people and the Filipino people!

Tribute to Comrade Felix Randy Malayao

February 6, 2019

When they murdered you in your sleep, it woke up even more people to the cause you fought for: a just and lasting peace, genuine freedom, democracy and prosperity to the Filipino people. To the very end, Felix Randy Malayao was a revolutionary and exemplary son of the people.

From the outpouring of rage, grief and condemnation following his brazen killing, we can see a life of service to others that Randy lived.

We see a multifaceted man with the core of a revolutionary – an exceptional student, a youth leader, excellent writer-journalist, scientist, peasant and worker organizer, fraternity brother, almost-chef, prison basketball tournament organizer, teacher to fellow inmates, jail cell“mayor” and even “adviser” to the jail warden, political prisoner, torture victim, internationalistand a warrior for peace and justice.

As a consultant of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) Negotiating Panel for the peace talks and its Reciprocal Working Group on Political and Constitutional Reforms (RWG-PCR), Randy showed sharpness of grasp of the condition of the people, political acumen honed by revolutionary work, and enthusiasm to the work that marked how he performed every task given to him in the revolutionary movement.

Randy was methodical, patient and a superb organizer who easily adapted to whatever task, wherever it was – organizing a student conference, blooming in jail, and working as an NDFP consultant.

From his student days when he led the formation of progressive student groups and encouraged student publications to the folds of progressive journalism, to his organizing years in northern Philippines, Randy was highly-regarded by the people he met and worked with.

Even the fascism of the State and the bars of jails in Cagayan and Isabela could not contain his determination to continue to be of service to the people. He was abducted in May 2008 and tortured for days before being surfaced then charged with multiple criminal cases. After years in prison, he was eventually acquitted and freed.

His stories while in prison are now legends. He was generous to his fellows in jail – be it in sharing resources he received from families and friends, or imparting his knowledge to them. The initiatives he started and organized including literacy programs, gardening and team- building friendly tournaments were deeply appreciated by everyone.

As a consultant of the NDFP Negotiating Panel for the peace talks and its Reciprocal Working Group on Political and Constitutional Reforms (RWG-PCR), Randy showed sharpness of grasp of the condition of the people and enthusiasm to the work that marked how he performed every task given to him in the revolutionary movement.

As an NDFP consultant, Randy went all over the Philippines and also overseas for consultations and education. He endeared himself to many from all walks of life.

For all he was and all he accomplished, Randy was humble, self-critical and ever aiming to improve his work and those around him.

Those who knew him for decades said that Randy’s favourite song was “You’ve Got to Do More than That” that he first heard in an international gathering of students. He did not only give more, he gave it all.

Randy once said in an interview: bloom where you are planted. Indeed, Randy, wherever the revolution took you, you bloomed and made many people around you bloom, as well. Soon, the enemies of the people will tremble at the beautiful sight of a revolution in full bloom that you helped tender and grow.

You are a martyr, a hero whom the enemies could not face awake. They are cowards as they could only traitorously murder the likes of you – civilians, activists and non-combatants – — but cower from the true people’s army and the armed revolution raging in the countryside.

Ka Randy, you shall forever be extolled in our people’s struggle until victory!Long live your memories! Mabuhay ka!

Tribute to Ka Felix Randy Malayao

By Jose Maria Sison, NDFP Chief Political Consultant
and Julieta de Lima, Member NDFP Negotiating Panel
February 5, 2019

NDFP Consultant Randy Felix Malayao

We came to know Ka Felix Randy Malayao personally in the course of the peace negotiations between the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) and Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) from 2016 to 2017. 

What immediately struck us as soon as he introduced himself to us was his amiability, cheerful mien, quick sense of humor and deep sense of optimism.

In the course of working with him we came to respect him for his revolutionary integrity, intellect and diligence in the discussion of issues and drafting of documents and his desire for a just and lasting peace. 

As a consultant, he participated in the discussion and the formulation of the NDFP drafts on the Comprehensive Agreement on Social and Economic Reforms CASER) and the Comprehensive Agreement on Political and Constitutional Reforms.

He also worked hard in promoting the peace process by taking long and tiring trips to speak in various forums in the Philippines and abroad. These forums were organized either by third party peace advocates, the NDFP unilaterally or bilaterally with the GRP.

While Ka Randy was in prison, we came to know him through mutual friends who informed us of his background and condition and who brought books from us to him. We admired him for his advocacy and activism for a just peace immediately after his release upon the dismissal of false charges against him. 

We have admired him for firmness in principle, his intelligence and style of hard work, seriousness of purpose, quiet kind of courage and humility and his skillful handling of relations in mass work among the youth, workers, peasants, intelligentsia and leaders of various parties.

We can say more about the brilliant qualities of Ka Randy and his accomplishments in the service of the people. But we are confident that many of us can give the wide range of testimonies to propagate his revolutionary spirit and exemplary deeds. 

Even those in power who are responsible for his murder are unwittingly rendering Ka Randy the highest honor even if in the vilest form of slander. It is a good thing to be attacked by the enemies of the Filipino people’s revolutionary cause of national and social liberation. The attacks unwittingly verify who are the heroes of the Filipino people.

Ka Randy is a hero of the Filipino people who has contributed his best to our struggle for national freedom, democracy, genuine development, social justice, cultural progress and just peace. He will live forever in the hearts and minds of the people, while his contributions are indestructible energy within the growing and advancing revolutionary movement.

Mula sa isang Amerikano na nakipamuhay sa New People’s Army

Mabilis ang isang buwan sa Hukbo. Naubos na ang Tagalog ko. 

Never did I expect to find so much peace, in he midst of war. A just war. A fluid war.  I came here looking for hope. And I found those who redefined things for me.

Like the itak, for example. A weapon to cut others and a tool for destruction, yet in the hands of the Hukbo it becomes a tool to transform the wilderness into something familiar. Like the M-16, which a Kasama showed me how to dismantle, when I first arrived. A tool designed to defeat the United States. Ka Ruben, reminded me that it was made in the U.S. Like this rifle, I am also from the U.S., but in the hands of the Hukbo I feel transformed. A weapon to change the world.

I don’t want to leave, but my children await my return. But I also feel that the Philippines, our Motherland, still cries out for all its lost children.

I came here looking for hope. What I discovered, was the new Filipino who is willing to fight for it.
Hindi kayo malilimutan. Maraming salamat!

MESSAGE OF THE COMMUNIST ORGANIZATION OF GREECE

DEC 26,2018

Dear Comrades of the CPP,

The Communist Organization of Greece is extending to you and to the revolutionary Filipino people congratulations on the golden anniversary of the Communist Party of the Philippines. When, 50 years ago, relatively few revolutionaries were gathering at a hut in Pangasinan, Luzon in order to re-establish the CPP, Philippines were ruled by Marcos. At first maybe he laughed arrogantly at the news of CPP’s founding. Then, as the CPP was gaining roots among the masses and advanced its armed and mass struggle, he declared that soon the “bandits” shall be crushed. 

Today the CPP is always here, while the dictator Marcos entered the dustbin of History – as did all those who replaced him later on as heads of the consecutive pro-US reactionary regimes. They all had declared, one after the other, that the time of CPP’s annihilation is approaching – only to be belied by the reality. If the golden anniversary proved just one thing, it is that a revolutionary movement that put itself selflessly in the service of the popular masses’ interests is not an easy match, no matter how powerful, malicious and manipulative the enemy is.

Today the world is very different than half a century ago. Scores of parties and movements worldwide, among them many that were boasting too loud their role as vanguards, have faded or ceased to exist, unable or unwilling to understand the ongoing profound changes of the globalized imperialist/capitalist system, to draw the lessons from previous failures, and to adapt in new realities in order to keep serving their peoples. Others have just chosen το bow to the TINA dogma and simply jumped to the enemy camp – the Greek people has experienced this recently in the most bitter way…

Clearly, CPP does not belong to either of these two categories. Its historic effort undertaken back in 1968, namely the struggle by all means for democratic, independent and socially just Philippines, remains today timely, valid and above all vivid. Its ideological, political and organizational strengthening continues and its roots among the popular masses get deeper. The CPP proved able to redress its mistakes and to resist the sugar-coated bullets of the enemy, while remaining the expression of the most profound needs and legitimate expectations of the Filipino people.

Dear Comrades of the CPP,

We know each other since the early 80s. During the last 35 years we have been together in many struggles and we have witnessed –and resisted– the emergence of the imperialist and neoliberal globalization as a response of the capitalist system to its own crisis. Today the alienation of whole peoples from this system, their generalized discontent and even their rage against it, as well as the delegitimation of its representatives, becomes more and more obvious in Europe and around the globe. 

As we are anxious to discover new, effective ways to serve our peoples and to imagine new liberating perspectives, your 50 years’ long struggle is offering us courage. And we are confident that the actual president, Mr Duterte, who appeared as a progressive and peace-loving candidate only to prove himself very fast as just another enemy of the Filipino people and pawn of US imperialism, will share the fate of his predecessors – while the CPP, the NPA, the NDFP and all the allied organizations will win greater victories in the ongoing struggle for national and social liberation.

Long live the Golden Anniversary of the CPP!

Let’s all welcome the unwelcome, until the time of the biggest fireworks comes!

Red salute to the 50th anniversary of the Communist Party of the Philippines!

Magno Udyaw
NPA-Mountain Province
Leonardo Pacsi Command / New People’s Army

January 02, 2019 

With utmost honors, the Leonardo Pacsi Command (LPC) salutes the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) as it celebrates its 50th founding anniversary. We take pride in recalling the great achievements of the Party and the revolution in the past 50 years.

We pay our highest tribute to all martyrs, comrades in the Party and the NPA, who gave their lives for the national democratic revolution. We also give the highest respects to our elders, chieftains, leaders and the masses who devoted their lives to the struggle for self-determination and democracy under the national democratic revolution. We salute the indomitable commitment, high spirit for sacrifice and perseverance of the cadres and members of the Party, Red commanders and fighters, leaders and mass membership of all revolutionary organizations.

The leadership of the Communist Party of the Philippines has been proven to be imperative for all revolutionary endeavours of the Filipino people and for the national democratic revolution to advance towards victory and socialism.

The CPP absolutely leads and harnesses the NPA to the Marxist-Leninist and Maoist ideology of the proletariat that makes the NPA invincible and resilient more than ever in its main role in advancing the people’s war. The NPA frustrated all previous fascist regimes that have been attempting to crush it in the past five decades. The Red army is cherished by the majority of the Filipino masses as their sole red army in their fight against the landlords and big bourgeois class, the imperialists and their fascist rule. The NPA is the only armed force that fights for sovereignty and democracy, and for the rights of the national minorities to self-determination against national oppression of the state.

The Party guided the laying and spreading of the people’s war in the Cordillera and the forming of the Red political power of the Igorot people. At the height of Martial Law during the US-Marcos dictatorship from 1971 to 1982, the guerrilla zone of Mt. Province was opened from Ifugao’s expansion, along with the expansion in Benguet, Abra, Kalinga and Apayao.The militant people’s struggle against the Chico Dam, the Cellophil Resources Corp. and the fascist US-Marcos regime heightened through the armed struggle in 1983 to 1985 that ended such anti-people projects. The elders and the chieftains mobilized hundreds of tribespeople and youth in joining the NPA. Battalions of people’s militia multiplied and strengthened the company forces of the NPA. In this struggle, the Party clearly imparted to the national minority of Cordillera that the revolutionary armed struggle is decisive in fighting the imperialist plunder of the ancestral domain’s wealth, state fascism and neglect .

Through the Party’s guidance in diligent social investigation and class analysis of Cordillera, it was pointed out that to overcome national oppression and pursue self-determination and democracy of the national minority, their struggle must be united with the struggle of the Filipino people in fighting feudalism, bureaucrat capitalism and imperialism. The Party clarified that the Igorots are part of the peasants, workers and impoverished Filipino people who are exploited under the semicolonal and semifeudal society and that the national oppression is an additional oppression to them by the state under this social system. This rectified the mistaken “national minority war” the Igorots should have trodden. The “national minority war” was supposedly a separate war of the national minority of Cordillera based on the subjective analysis that there is no class struggle in Cordillera. The Party united the separate tribes of Cordillera and led their war to their rightful enemy: the imperialists and their landlord and big

bourgeois cohorts and so with the reactionary government that enforces laws that allow the continuous pillage of the giant capitalists on the natural wealth of Cordillera. Also through the guidance of the Party, the NPA was able to deter and isolate the traitor and opportunist Cordillera People’s Liberation Army and despite the turmoil it created to the revolutionary movement, the armed struggle in the region still grew stronger.

The Party trained the NPA to effectively employ the three integral components of the people’s war to the concrete and particular situation of Cordillera – the building of revolutionary bases and organs of political power, agrarian revolution and the armed struggle. The Party leads the NPA in arousing and mobilizing the peasant masses for them to carry-out agrarian revolution as the kernel of the people’s war. The Party and the NPA are with the peasant masses in determining and resolving the existing semifeudal and feudal forms of exploitation on them. Here in Mt. Province and Cordillera, the peasants face the problems of usury and trader exploitation, burdensome land rent, low wages of farm workers, lack of subsidy and services in agriculture and social services, and lacking relief and delayed rehabilitation on calamity damages. These add up to the main problem of insufficiency and low productivity of land for the greater number of peasants in Cordillera to till. This is worsened by the landgrabbing practice of the giant mine and energy companies that seize the people’s ancestral land and water resources.

The NPA helps build revolutionary mass organizations likewise in strengthening of the Cordillera People’s Democratic Front as the revolutionary alliance of the workers, peasants and all democratic forces in Cordillera. As a result of the tenacious advancement of agrarian revolution and the expansion and deepening of the revolutionary bases, the peasant youth are enlisting in the NPA and the People’s Militias are likewise expanding.

The NPA is moreover grateful to the CPP in leading the comprehensive rectification of the ideological, political and organizational mistakes and weaknesses for the people’s war to leap forward to a higher level. Through the Party’s motivation, the NPA is determined in overcoming military conservatism and as a result is gaining more victories in its tactical offensives against the AFP and PNP. The Leonardo Pacsi Command along with the other units under the Chadli Molintas Command take the initiative in punishing the AFP and PNP forces that assault the ancestral territories and communities, likewise in punishing the destructive Lepanto, Philex and Hedcor companies.

In the past 50 years, the alternating regimes were not able to subdue the CPP, NPA and the revolutionary mass movement from their inception even in the harshest period of the US-Marcos dictatorship. And now, our unwavering march in the last 50 years is being challenged by the fascist yet imperialist lameduck Duterte. The US-Duterte regime is so worried of the intensifying armed struggle and the people’s surge. Their pronouncement of crushing the NPA til the end of 2018 is bound to fail, so that they are compelled to heighten their counter-revolutionary war through Oplan Kapayapaan and Martial Law.

The crisis of the semifeudal and semicolonial society and aggravated by the anti-people, pro- imperialist and fascist policies of the US-Duterte regime is the objective basis for the people’s armed revolution to advance. The neoliberal policies of the regime moreover stagnate the backward agriculture from which the people of Cordillera still take their basic living while stunting national industrialization. The regime prevents the people from utilizing and eking out their living from the natural resources of their ancestral lands for these to be served to the mining and energy capitalist companies. The AFP likewise focuses its counter-revolutionary war in the region through the IP-centric approach among the Igorots and quenching their revolutionary struggle through the “peace zone” propaganda and reformist projects.

The national minority of Cordillera has a noble history of waging war in pursuit of their self- determination and democracy. The Party guided this noble tradition by rooting deep into the oppressed people and the advancement of the struggle of all national minorities in the country have become a part of the Party’s 50 years of victory. And now, the Party points to the challenges ahead for the further advancement of the people’s war towards estrategic stalemate.

Celebrate the golden anniversary of the CPP! Strengthen and join the NPA! Raise higher the gallant tradition of the Igorots’ struggle for self-determination and democracy! Strengthen our resolve in advancing the national democratic revolution and further on to socialism!

Talumpati ni Ka Cleo del Mundo sa pagdiriwang ng Ikalimampung Taong pagkakatatag ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas

December 26, 2018

NPA-Quezon (Apolonio Mendoza Command) spokesperson Ka Cleo del Mundo

Isang taas kamaong pagbati sa masa na naglaan ng panahon at oras para makarating sa napakamakabuluhang aktibidad natin ngayong araw na ito. 

Pagbati sa lahat ng mga kadre at kasapi ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas, sa lahat ng mga miyembro ng iba’t-ibang organisasyong masa at buong sambayanang Pilipino. 

Isang mataas na pagpupugay din sa ating mga dakilang martir na walang pag-aalinlangan na nag-alay ng buhay para sa rebolusyon. Kung hindi sa kanilang walang pag-iimbot na paglilingkod, hindi natin makakamit ang mga tagumpay sa nagdaang 50 taon.

Ang makabuluhang ipinagdiriwang natin ngayon mga kasama ay ang pagdiriwang ng ginintuang anibersaryo ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas at sa makabuluhang pagdiriwang nating ito ay bigo ang rehimeng us-Duterte na wasakin at durugin ang rebolusyonaryong kilusan!

Nagyayabang na nagsabi ang pasistang tropa ng rehimeng US-Duterte na wala raw anumang dapat ipagdiwang ang CPP-NPA. 

Mga kasama, may isang libo’t isang dahilan tayo na ipagdiwang at masayang salubungin ang ginintuang anibersaryo ng muling-tatag na Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas. Sa loob ng 50-taong buhay-at-kamatayang pakikibaka, itinampok ng ating Partido ang wasto at matatag na pamumuno sa pakikibaka ng sambayanang Pilipino upang makamit ang pambansang kalayaan at demokrasya mula sa saklot ng malapyudal at malakolonyal na sistema ng naghaharing malalaking burgesyang kumprador, panginoong maylupa’t mga burukratang kapitalista.

Hanggang sa kasalukuyan ay nananatiling nakatayo ang bandera ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas, New People’s Army at National Democratic Front of the Philippines, at umabot nga tayo ng 50 taon sa kabila ng matinding pang-aatake at pangggigipit ng rehimeng US-Duterte at mga kasapakat nitong AFP-PNP-CAFGU at iba pang paramilitar. 

Ang sabi ng AFP ay laos at lipas na ang rebolusyon, dahil limampung taon na ay hindi pa ito manalo-nalo. Ibalik natin ito sa kanila, at sabihing – E KUNG GAYON, BAKIT HINDI NINYO PA RIN KAMI MATATALO-TALO?
Kaya isang mataas na pagpupugay ang ibinibigay natin sa Bagong Hukbong Bayan sa kabila ng kahirapan at sakripisyo, buong tapang, buong giting nilang iniaalay ang buong panahon para sa armadong pakikibaka. At sa lahat ng mga mamamayan, partikular sa lalawigan ng Quezon na walang sawang sumusuporta sa rebolusyon. 

Alam nyo ba mga kasama, kami po ay natutuwa sapagkat sa araw na ito ay sama-sama tayong sumasalubong sa 50 taon ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas, maaalala natin ito sa mga susunod na panahon sa pagsusulong ng rebolusyon, hanggang sa magtagumpay ang Demokratikong Rebolusyong Bayan. 

Labis pong lumulundag ang aking puso sa tuwa, sa mga masa natin at sa mga bisita natin na galing sa kalunsuran, at maging sa ibang bansa, at sa mga magsasaka sa kanayunan ng Quezon na mas pinili nilang dito mag-Pasko at masaksihan ang pagdiriwang nating ito sa kabila ng matinding pagbabanta ng rehimeng US duterte na tayo ay dudurugin sukdulang idadamay nila ang mga sibilyan na sumusuporta at sumisimpatya sa CPP-NPA. 

Sampal sa mukha ni Digong Duterte ang pagtitipon nating ito ngayon!

Sa ginintuang pagdiriwang nating ito ay higit tayong susulong, makakaigpaw sa ating mga kahinaan na natukoy sa kilusang pagwawasto upang makamit natin sa susunod na tatlong taon ang abanteng yugto ng estratehikong depensiba, at sa malao’t madali ay makatuntong sa pagkakapatas. Mula doon mga kasama, lalong magniningning ang ginintuang pag-asa ng pag-alpas sa pagkaapi ng sambayanang Pilipino.

Kaya ang ating panawagan – buong sambayanan, sumapi sa NPA! Ipagtagumpay ang Digmang Bayan! Mabuhay ang ginintuang anibersaryo ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas!
Mabuhay ang New People’s Army!
Mabuhay ang National Democratic Front of the Philippines!
Mabuhay ang sambayanang pilipino
Mangahas makibaka! Mangahas magtagumpay!

A warm greeting to the Communist Party of the Philippines on its 50th anniversary

Dear comrades:

I regret that I can not be present at such an important celebration. The costs have risen, with the devaluation of our currency in more than one hundred percent and therefore we must restrict above all the expenses of trips abroad and in other currencies.

On behalf of our C.C. We want to send a warm greeting to the Communist Party of the Philippines on its 50th anniversary, in which the Filipino people have entrusted the struggle for their national and social liberation. We have no doubt about the importance of the example of your Party and the NPA at the head of the armed experience of the masses, for the whole of the world revolutionary movement and especially for the Marxists Leninist, in a context where ideas and forces still predominate revisionists -reformists. Much more, in times when imperialism and its crisis poses the challenge of opposing it to the possibility of inter-imperialist war, the workers’ rebellion and the people’s war.

To unite, organize and unleash the struggle of the most consistent forces against imperialism and reaction and be able to advance along the path of Liberation and Socialism, we need not only the powerful parties like the CCP at the head of the tools capable of uniting to those forces, but we need one or several triumphant revolutions that are the beacons that illuminate the new revolutionary stage.

Surely, in that way we will have the contribution of the experience of the Filipino people and their communist leadership.

Live the 50 years of the Communist Party of the Philippines !!

Long live proletarian internationalism!

For the imperialism crisis there is a path: Revolution and Socialism!

MESSAGE OF THE WORKERS WORLD PARTY TO THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE PHILIPPINES

December 29, 2018

Workers World Party sends revolutionary greetings and solidarity on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of the Philippines. It is a great honor to be invited to this celebration, and we wish were able to attend and express our solidarity in person.

The CPP and it’s 50 years of struggle are an inspiration to Workers World Party and revolutionaries around the world. The CPP’s creative and dialectical application of the ideas and practice of Marx, Lenin, Mao and many other revolutionary leaders to the concrete conditions of the Phillipine struggle are an example that all revolutionaries, including those here in the belly of the U.S. imperialist beast would do well to study.

We salute the struggle of the CPP against the blood thirsty Duterte regime and for the people’s democratic revolution to lay the basis for socialist revolution.

With the determined and principled leadership of the CPP, the struggle of the Filipino people against imperialism, feudalism and bureaucrat-capitalism will surely continue to strengthen.

Imperialismo, Ibagsak!

In Solidarity,
