The National Democratic Front-North Eastern Mindanao Region (NDFP-NEMR), joins the people and the defenders of human rights in commemorating the 70th year of the International Human Rights Day this December 10, 2018.

Duterte's creeping coup against the 1987 Constitution is calculated to climax in 2019

On this International Human Rights Day, it is fitting and proper to reflect on the Duterte regime's vicious human rights violations in its drive to impose a fascist dictatorship on the Filipino people. Thus, the appropriate and effective courses of action can be defined for upholding, defending and promoting human rights.

On Duterte's pseudo-independent foreign policy

Panelo should closely read my statements about the West Philippine Sea issue to appreciate that I use a wide range of Philippine and international sources as basis for my views. There is nothing wrong about any factual and reasonable estimate of the rent and damages that China should be paying for occupying the artificial islands and damaging the marine environment.

Duterte has gone into a waiver of Philippine sovereign rights but China demands explicit surrender of these rights

Justice Carpio is overoptimistic and wrong that China will accept a mere service contract to give up China's baseless claims over the West Philippine Sea and recognize the sovereign rights of the Philippines in accordance with the UNCLOS and the .legal victory of the Philippines before the Permanent Court of Arbitration in July, 2016.

AFP’s EastMinComm setting stage to extend martial law, legalize hit squads with sham ‘engagements’ with NPA

The lies the spinmeisters of the AFP’s Eastern Mindanao Command and Region 11’s Philippine National Police are getting more ridiculous in their desperate bid to ensure that martial law and the atmosphere of hysteria persist in Davao City and elsewhere in Southern Mindanao.

Terror, summary killings, school burning and fake news among AFP staples in North Cotabato

The implementation of martial law in Mindanao has already resulted in innumerable human rights violations that the AFP, especially the rotten 39th IB and 19th IB in North Cotabato, have resorted in peddling fake news to cover up their reign of terror, summary killings and assault against schools in the hinterland Lumad and peasant villages in the province.

Accelerating trend towards martial law nationwide and full-blown fascist dictatorship of Duterte

In view of certain recent acts of the tyrant Duterte, he is accelerating the realization of his scheme to declare martial law nationwide and impose a full-blown fascist dictatorship on the people.

MO 32: Duterte's "Modus Operandi" that intensifies militarization and human rights violations in Negros Island

Rodrigo Duterte's memorandum order (MO) 32 is actually his "modus operandi" that uses bloodthirsty violence and outright chicanery against the people to prolong his cling to power. This is ground work for nationwide martial law and ensures that the outcome of the May 2019 elections will be in his favor.

Martial law extension will further intensify the people's armed resistance

The reality of the US-Duterte regime’s deception to rationalize the tyrannical move of declaring martial law against those who oppose him, is more than ever clear to the people. The steps being made to further extend (martial law) illustrates the calculated moves to bolster Duterte’s ambition of dictatorial rule.


Duterte’s statement that the AFP is untainted by corruption because it is disciplined, degrades the people. The fact that soldiers of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), from the lowest among its ranks to its generals, are linked to varying forms and gravity of corruption and bribes, aside from their abuses, is clear to the people.

Forced surrender of civilians, a deceitful and idiotic move of the AFP

Similar to what have been done under previous regimes, amidst the failure of its Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Philippine National Police (PNP) to effect the surrender of Red fighters of the New People’s Army (NPA), this administration has resorted to a deceitful and idiotic move of forcing large numbers of civilians to surrender.


The signing and approval of the Memorandum under the direction of Duterte is a clear act of treason, a blatant betrayal of the sovereign rights and national patrimony of the Philippines and the Filipino people.

Duterte is already implementing nationwide martial law with troop deployment in Bicol, Samar and Negros

Without formal declaration, Duterte is already implementing nationwide martial law with the order today to deploy additional military troops and police to the Bicol region, Samar and Negros islands.

Worsening lies of Col. Arevalo

Col. Benedict Arevalo, 303rd Brigade Commander, is distressed and desperate on how to cover up the crimes and blood-debts of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Philippine National Police (PNP) to the people of Negros.

What is Duterte in peace negotiations? A clown, a dolt or a dopehead?

Duterte is simply joking, stupid or crazy when he publicly proposes that the NDFP submit to him a draft peace agreement for him to approve, subject to the further approval of the AFP and PNP. He pretends not to know that there is a negotiating process or he is so drugged by fentanyl that he does not really know it.

Mahitungod sa Peke na Engkwentro sa Sitio Puting Bato, Bgy. Washington, Escalante City

Dakong bakak ang giingon sa 303rd Brigade sa kumand ni Col. Benedict Arevalo ug 79th IB sa kumand ni Jesson Agaton nga nakaengkwentro sila og pipila ka membro sa New People’s Army (NPA) sa Sityo Puting Bato, Bgy. Washington, Escalante City adtong Nobyembre 16, 2018. Walay operatiba o hangaway ang NPA Roselyn Jean Pelle Command sa mao na lugar. Walay na-klining na armas sa NPA. Walay casualty kay walay engkwentro na nahitabo.


Memorandum Order No. 32 is formally and actually a declaration of a state of national emergency. This is in furtherance of the ongoing tyranny and de facto martial law nationwide. It is preparatory to formal proclamation of martial law nationwide, the screwing up of the 2019 elections, chacha for bogus federalism and establishment of fascist dictatorship ala Marcos.


THE LONG STRUGGLE FOR FREEDOM: Dedicated to the 50th annniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of the Philippines. A poem by Jose Maria Sison


The tyrant Duterte and his followers keep on dumbing down the Filipino people. To have their way on major issues, they always put forward false choices on the basis of simpleton arguments that are grossly contrary to facts.

Without President Rodrigo Duterte’s assurance on their safety and protection, the leaders of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) based overseas may cancel their scheduled return to the country to work for the possible resumption of the peace talks.

Generating fake surrenders, a lucrative source of corruption for promotion-hungry AFP officials

Churning out and parading fake “surrenderers” through the so-called E-CLIP scheme is nothing but a lucrative money-making venture and a source of corruption for ambitious AFP officials gunning for promotion and privileges.

Latin America and the anti-imperialist movement

The people of Guatemala and Latin America have a rich revolutionary experience. They can draw positive and negative lessons from this experience and clarify the tasks for waging revolution more successfully than ever before. They can never agree to the perpetuation of their oppression and exploitation by the US imperialists and the local exploiting classes.

Umaalingasaw na kasinungalingan at malupit na pasismo ni Duterte

Sa nagdaang mga linggo, walang-kahihiyan si Duterte at kanyang mga pasistang kasapakat sa pambabaluktot sa katotohanan sa imbing layuning siraan ang Partido at rebolusyonaryong kilusan.

Duterte is his own regime's gravedigger

On the treason of Duterte with regard to the onerous loans from China

ON THE TREASON OF DUTERTE WITH REGARD TO THE ONEROUS LOANS FROM CHINA Statement by Prof. Jose Maria Sison, NDFP Chief Politicfal Consultant, November 4, 2018 Duterte and his cronies are so greedy and eager to collect privately hundreds of millions of dollars as finder's fees for brokering the billions of dollars of loans from China for overpriced infrastructure projects. They are acting as swindlers and thieves. Until signing time, they are deliberately concealing from the Filipino people the terms of the framework agreement and the loan agreements which are expected to turn the Philippines into a debt colony of China. They use the natural resources of the Philippines as collateral for unrepayable loans and violating the sovereign rights of the Philippines of the Filipino people over oil, gas and other natural resources under the West Philippine Sea. The trillions of dollars worth of Philippine oil and gas are being given away for a few billion dollars worth of high-interest Chinese loans for overpriced infrastructure projects done mostly by Chinese workers. Traitorous and stupid! The debts from China come on top of the already huge accumulated debt from the US, Japan and other traditional lenders. With the US Federal Bank raising interest rates on the US dollar under a new policy of quantitative tightening, the previously accumulated debt of the Philippines will automatically grow. The Philippines is already suffering from a debt crisis. The Duterte regime, especially its chieftain Duterte, will go down in history as a traitor to national sovereignty and to the people's interest in self-reliant development through national industrialization and land reform and wise utilization of the rich natural resources of the Philippines.###

Duterte scolds and agitates the military against the opposition

Duterte should hold himself responsible for failing to take the initiative to work for real change of the rotten semicolonial and semifeudal system and address the people’s need and demand for national and social liberation, instead of scolding and blaming his predecessors and the military for failing to make any change for the substantial improvement of the people’s lot.

Reply to Duterte regarding achievements of the Communist Party of the Philippines

Bolsonaro will replace outgoing President Michel Temer on 1 January 2019, for a four-year term.

A childish provocation by Duterte

Duterte has long vowed to kill me if he had the chance. He continues to be overeager to have the chance to kill me by challenging me to return home and wage war. I would not fall into his trap. I merely laugh at this childish provocation which manifests his roguish or stupid kind of mentality.

Escalating oppression and exploitation will only engender more people's armed resistance and revolutionary victories

Quick Reply to Duterte from Prof. Jose Maria Sison

You can no longer be swayed by any reason to engage in peace negotiations. You have repeatedly terminated the peace negotiations, despite the standing policy of NDFP to be ready and be willing to negotiate with the GRP. You are already crazed by your drive for absolute power and absolute corruption.

On Duterte’s military takeover of the Bureau of Customs

Duterte’s military takeover of the Bureau of Customs signal his assumption of complete and direct control of the drug smuggling operations in the Philippines. Frustrated over how recent operations to smuggle in more than two tons of methamphetamine hydrocholoride (shabu) was publicly exposed, Duterte now wants to use martial law powers to take complete control of the BoC and throw out everyone outside his cabal, and use the military culture of secrecy to serve his criminal mafia ends.

Marañon's stinking drama

Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. is the kingpin of the big despotic landlords in Negros. His move to convene what he calls Task Force Hustisya stinks of deceit and ill motives. Evidently demented in calling the brutal massacre of nine farm workers, wherein all were shot in the head while three were set on fire, as 'scripted', Marañon continues his vain attempts to divert the public from the real issues of land monopoly, tyranny and exploitation.

A poem by Jose Maria Sison

Duterte's culpabilities for soaring prices of basic goods and services and for the deterioration of the Philippine economy

It is fine that Duterte admits lately that tough economic times are ahead for the Filipino people who are now already reeling from the inflationary conditions. He contradicts his previous declaration in Bali that the Philippine economy is on an upward trajectory.

AFP's Red October fairy tale is over, but the real struggle to oust US-Duterte regime continues

Defense Secretary Lorenzana yesterday made himself look stupid by claiming that the AFP has successfully foiled "Red October," a "plot" which they themselves invented.
