Basic problems confront youth amid palliative, token reform

Duterte is a US foreign aggression tool for condemning North Korea

Duterte has become a tool for US foreign aggression when he denounced North Korea for developing its nuclear weapons capability.

On Duterte's anti-Joma tirades

Duterte's tirades against Prof. Jose Ma. Sison are a vain attempt to derogate a giant of a revolutionary intellectual and leader. In relentlessly attacking Ka Joma, Duterte is overcompensating for his drug-shrivelled and power-intoxicated brain.

Duterte raises Balangiga for self-serving purposes

GRP President Duterte is raising the Filipino people's clamor for the return of the Balangiga bells but only for self-serving purposes: First, this is meant as countermove against calls by some sectors in the US to investigate violations of human rights in Duterte's drug war.

Duterte Kills Peace Talks, Blames Revolutionaries for Martial Law

By his own public declarations and expressions of admiration for the fascist dictator Ferdinand E. Marcos, Philippine President Rodrigo R. Duterte has long been obsessed with his scheme to establish his own iron-fisted rule through martial law and extrajudicial killings by way of asserting “strong man” leadership and intimidating the opposition and the people under the pretext of solving not only the problem of illegal drugs but also far graver social, economic and political problems of the US-dominated ruling system of big compradors and landlords.

Joma Sison: No need for peace talks amid martial law, killings

"There is really no need for GRP-NDFP (Government of the Republic of the Philippines-National Democratic Front of the Philippines) peace negotiations if the Duterte regime is obsessed with martial rule and mass murder as the way to solve social, economic and political problems and to frighten in vain the revolutionary forces and people to surrender and give up their revolutionary struggle for national and social liberation," Sison said in a statement.

Pagduso sa ekstensyon sa martial law sa Mindanao, gisugat sa sunod-sunod nga mga aksyong militar sa BHB-NEMR

Duterte's dialogue with Bayan shows: change would only come from the people

Duterte's decline of Bayan's reasonable plea for the end of martial law and, on the contrary, his push for the further extension of martial law in Mindanao and relatedly the GPH's insistence for a "prolonged ceasefire" as a precondition for the continuation of the GPH-NDFP peace talks – all these do not at all bide well for the peace negotiations.

On the plan to extend martial law in Mindanao to end of year

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) firmly denounces the plan of GRP President Duterte to extend martial law in Mindanao up to December 31, 2017. This will result in worse military and police abuses. It will prolong the restrictions against civil and political freedom and aggravate violations of people's democratic rights. It will further suppress the truth to control the narrative to favor the AFP.

Worsening crisis, death and destruction under Duterte regime

The Duterte regime's key economic, social, security and foreign relations policies are basically a continuation of past measures which perpetuate the oppressive and exploitative semicolonial and semifeudal system.

Peace Negotiations Between Duterte Regime and Revolutionary Forces Head for the Rocks

By all major indications, the peace negotiations between the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) headed by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and the revolutionary forces represented by the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) are heading for the rocks, despite the strong clamor for these negotiations by the public and a broad range of peace advocates and despite the patient and efficient third party role of the Royal Norwegian Government (RNG) as facilitator.

On OPAPP statement concerning NPA military actions

Since yesterday, Presidential Peace Adviser Jesus Dureza and the Malacañang spokesperson have issued separate statements impugning the revolutionary forces' seriousness to talk peace citing military actions of the New People's Army (NPA) in Mindanao and elsewhere which they claim "disrupts the conducive and enabling environment" for peace talks.

CPP welcomes GRP commitment to continue talks; calls for immediate end to destruction of Marawi and Mindanao Martial Law

Lorenzana and Abella are out of bounds

The statements issued by GRP DND Secretary Delfin Lorenzana, a publicly identified lackey of US imperialism, and Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella in connection with the raid of a police station in Maasin, Iloilo, by the NPA are baseless, unfair and unwarranted.

The declaration that 75% of NPA are Lumad is a big lie and deceitful

During his visit to Agusan del Norte last June 17, 2017, the US regime declared that 75% of NPA members are Lumad.

He tried to entice the Lumad to surrender with integration into the reactionary army.

Police officer held as NPA prisoner; NPA offensive vs. 16th IB in Paquibato

The New People's Army units in Southern Mindanao continue to firm up its battle positions while defending the rights of the people in the territories of the People's Democratic Government. The NPA is even more constrained to do so in the face of GRP Pres. Rodrigo Duterte's adamant dictatorial bluster and the rising fascism of his regime amid the Martial Law imposition and suspension of the writ of habeas corpus in Mindanao.

On presence of US military forces in Marawi

The AFP's admission that it is now being provided with "technical assistance" and fed with intelligence information by the US military indicates two things. First, that the US military is being allowed by the AFP to carry out intelligence operations, presumably, electronic and drone surveillance operations, in complete violation of Philippine sovereignty. Secondly, that the AFP is now being remote-controlled by the US military like one of its drones through so-called "sharing" of intelligence information.

Martial Law in Mindanao fits into U.S. imperialist strategy for domination in Asia and the Pacific

Duterte's martial law in Mindanao further proves that the country's much-vaunted "independence" is all along a complete sham. Why? It is because Duterte's bases for declaring martial law in Mindanao fits right into the scheme of US imperialism to further strengthen and maintain its military, political and economic hegemony in the country and the Asia-Pacific region.

Firmly oppose Mindanao martial law

The entire revolutionary movement strongly condemns the imposition of martial law and the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus in Mindanao by GRP President Duterte. This has no justification.

The GRP and NDFP negotiating panels must meet first to solve certain problems and agree on coordination

The Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) makes it appear that it has cancelled the fifth round of the peace negotiations with the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) because the latter has not withdrawn the order of the Communist Party of the Philippines to the New People’s Army to intensify tactical offensives against the AFP, PNP and armed auxiliaries of the GRP.

Peace negotiations are still on, safety and immunity guarantees remain in effect

The GRP-NDFP peace negotiations are ongoing despite the fact that the 5th round of formal talks did not take place as scheduled due to the decision of the GRP panel not to participate. All the bilateral agreements that lay down the framework, processes and conditions for the entire peace negotiations, including the JASIG, remain binding, operational and in effect.

On cancellation of fifth round of peace talks and worsening state of martial rule

The cancellation of the fifth round of peace talks is the sole responsibility of the GRP. Its negotiating panel imposed unnecessary, last-minute and unacceptable preconditions for talks to proceed. The talks could have been an opportunity to attain substantial progress in discussing and forging the Comprehensive Agreement on Socio-Economic Reforms (CASER). The GRP cancellation of the fifth round of peace talks has effectively derailed and set back the CASER.

Reply to the Opening Statement of Peace Adviser Jesus G. Dureza dated May 27, 2017

The GRP’s persistent demand for the immediate signing of a bilateral ceasefire agreement as precondition to the continuation of the formal talks is an outright violation of the 1992 Hague Joint Declaration. The NDFP stands by its position, priorly acknowledged and concurred with by the GRP, that the implementation of CARHRIHL and the forging of the CASER should take precedence over the crafting of a bilateral ceasefire agreement.

Substantive agreement on social and economic reforms conducive for achievement of peace

The Reciprocal Working Committee on Social Economic Reforms of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP RWC-SER) said the most "enabling environment conducive for the achievement of a just and sustainable peace" is the presence of much-needed social and economic reforms that is the objective of the discussions on the Comprehensive Agreement on Social and Economic Reforms (CASER).

AFP offensives and atrocities in Mindanao heighten since declaration of Martial Law

It would have been good if Bello were telling the truth that Duterte's Mindanao Martial Law is only aimed against terrorists and not against the NPA or the people in general.

The burden of proving such claims are heavy on the shoulders of Bello, as well as of key security and military officials of the Duterte government.

The NDFP and its delegation came to The Netherlands ready and willing to proceed with the fifth round of talks to work on the draft of CASER (Comprehensive Agreement on Social and Economic Reforms).

Opening speech for the Fifth Round of the Formal Talks in the GRP-NDFP peace negotiations

it is unacceptable to the NDFP for the GRP to insist on putting its demand for any joint or bilateral prolonged and indefinite ceasefire ahead of CASER and CAPCR in order to obtain the capitulation and pacification of the revolutionary forces and the people, and lay aside the substantive agenda and the ever urgent demands of the people for social, economic and political reforms necessary for achieving a just and lasting peace.

Statement of the NDFP panel on the NPA as a target of martial law

The Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) has clarified that the New People's Army (NPA) is not a target of the declaration of martial law in Mindanao, contrary to an earlier statement by GRP DND Secretary Delfin Lorenzana, in the fight against terrorist groups such as the Maute group and Abu Sayyaf that are attempting to affiliate with the CIA-created ISIS or Daesh.

Response to Bello’s claim that martial law is not against the NPA

GRP chief negotiator Silvestre Bello III insists that the CPP made an error in calling on the New People's Army to intensify its tactical offensives against the AFP. He claims the declaration of martial law in Mindanao is not against the NPA.

Duterte regime's martial law will further isolate it from the people

By imposing martial law and curtailing the civil and political rights, GRP President Duterte is further isolating his regime from the people. In the vain hope of justifying his imposition of martial law in Mindanao and plan to impose it on the entire country, he yesterday described Marcos martial law as "good" in all-out contempt of the Filipino people's sufferings under the 1972-1986 military dictatorship.

On Duterte's declaration of Martial Law in Mindanao

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) strongly denounces the Duterte regime for imposing martial law in Mindanao and subjecting the Filipino people to military rule. By declaring martial law in Mindanao, Duterte has gone beyond the threats and theatrics of the past months.

Permanent ceasefire call a cover-up for AFP violations in Cordillera — NDFP

A call by local Cordillera executives for a permanent ceasefire between the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) that will prohibit "communist guerrillas" from "attacking the civilian populace" is a desperate attempt to divert public attention from the human rights violations being inflicted by state security forces on national minority communities.
