In solidarity with the July 25 mass action in the Philippines

By Professor JOSE MARIA SISON
CPP Founding Chairmain
NDFP Chief Political Consultant

I am pleased to know the firm decision of many parties, organizations and individuals to increase the number of participating masses and raise the level of the mass movement in order to advance the efforts to overthrow the Arroyo regime… We cannot allow the fake president to continue with the position that she has stolen. It is reprehensible that she should be the one reporting on the state of the nation. It is certain that she will simply spout lies. She will invent achievements. She will obscure her crimes and make new empty promises.

Letter to Geneva Call re: deceitful reports on the use of landmines

By FIDEL V. AGCAOILI
Chairperson, NDFP Human Rights Committee

We categorically deny AFP allegations that the NPA deploys self-detonating landmines. Anyone familiar with the Philippine situation knows that the AFP is a corrupt, brutal and deceitful organization. It routinely engages in disinformation, tortures captives to make them lie and plants evidence, not only against the NPA but also against civilians, civilian communities and organizations. Institutions such as the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, the National Union of Journalists, Karapatan, human rights and lawyers groups and people’s organizations are recklessly and maliciously described as “enemy of the people”.
