Duterte’s positive comments on peace talks welcome - Joma

The statements of Duterte at the 9th anniversary of the Mindanao Development Authority in Davao City on February 19, 2019 are mixed. They carry positive and negative content as well as serious and joking expressions. But they seem to be better than entirely hostile statements.

Supreme Court is once again legitimizing Duterte's fascist reign

In upholding the so-called constitutionality of Duterte's third one-year extension of martial law in Mindanao, the Supreme Court is again legitimizing and providing legal cover for the Duterte regime's fascist and lawless reign in Mindanao and elsewhere in the country.

Condolences to the Revolutionary Communist Party of Argentina on the passing away of Comrade Otto Vargas

On fascist cyberattacks and assault on media to silence the people

Katarungan para sa lahat ng biktima ng pasistang rehimeng US-Duterte

Pinanghahawakan ng mga rebolusyonaryong pwersa na ang pasistang rehimeng US-Duterte ang ganap na responsable sa walang-pakundangang pagpatay kay Randy Felix Malayao, konsultant pangkapayapaan ng NDFP noong Enero 30. Isang buwan lamang bago ang pagpatay kay Malayao, hayagang inendorso mismo ni Duterte ang malawakang mga pagpatay at inutusan ang kanyang mga death squad na likidahin ang mga rebolusyonaryong pwersa at mga tagasuporta ng Partido at rebolusyonaryong kilusan.

Duterte's "land reform" is a big fake

Duterte's "land reform" is a big fake. His government falsely claims to have distributed 60,000 hectares of land over the past few months. What Duterte is distributing, in fact, are mere documents requiring recipients to regularly pay burdensome amortization fees before they can claim ownership to the land.

On the malicious and futile attempt of Duterte regime to summon me to Manila

I pity Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra and Manila Judge Marlo Madoga-Malager for collaborating to have me summoned to Manila and for appearing stupid and grossly ignorant of international law pertaining to my status and my decades-long legal history just to comply with the truly stupid order of their boss Duterte to target me in the proscription case against the CPP and the NPA.

Duterte makes a fool of himself by denying the existence of the people's government

In one of his latest rants against me, Duterte makes a fool of himself by denying the existence of the people’s democratic government and opposing its vital function of taxation for defraying the costs of administration and various social programs for the benefit of the people.

Duterte is the chief political agent and hatchet man of the landed oligarchy and the agri-corporations

Duterte is belatedly distributing only a few token certificates of land transfer to a small number of presumed land reform beneficiaries for the purpose of propaganda. He is using his tokenism to make the big lie that he will distribute all the idle public land to the landless peasants who have long hungered for land of their own.

Duterte claims of victory vs. revolutionary forces fake - Joma

Contrary to the false claims of Duterte and his spokesman Panelo, the revolutionary forces of the Filipino people are winning on a nationwide scale. The CPP, NPA, NDFP, the revolutionary mass organizations and the people’s democratic government are growing in strength and advancing against the reactionary government.

Persevere in attaining greater heights in the National Democratic Revolution with Socialist Perspective

It is with extreme pride and honour that we salute all comrades in celebration of the 47th founding anniversary of the Christians for National Liberation.

Tribute to Ka Felix Randy 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.

On the slander against Ka Randy Malayao

The CPP denounces the Duterte regime's foulest move in sowing false information surrounding the murder of Ka Randy Malayao.

We cannot expect the traitor Duterte to stand up for territorial integrity and sovereign rights

We cannot expect the traitor Duterte to heed the call of Justice Carpio to stand up for the territorial integrity and sovereign rights of the Philipines and the Filipino people in connection with the Chinese occupation and construction on the Kagitingan Reef (Fiery Cross).

On the brazen intrigue of Chief Superintendent Espino

The false claim of Chief Superintendent Mario Espino, the regional director of the Philippine National Police in Cagayan Valley, that the murder of Randy Malayao was done by the NPA is a brazen intrigue of the vilest kind.

Anger and pain for the murder of Randy Felix Malayao, martyr of the cause of the Philippine people

At 2 am local time, while traveling on a bus in Aritao, Nueva Vizcaya, in the Philippines, the comrade Randy Felix P. Malayao was murdered by an killer of Duterte's criminal regime. The hit man climbed aboard the bus during a break, surprised him in his sleep and killed him with a gun.

First of all, I wish to express most heartfelt sympathy to those killed and wounded in the bombing of the Catholic Cathedral in Jolo City and to all their families and friends. As a matter of principle, I condemn the bombing as an act of terrorism directed against civilians and a place of worship.

NDFP Special Office for the Protection of Children condemns the US-Duterte regime for seeking to lower the age of criminal responsibility

The Special Office for the Protection of Children of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines condemns in no uncertain terms the efforts of the US-Duterte regime, through its House of Representatives, to lower the age of criminal responsibility of children from 15 years old to 9 or 12 years old.

Condemn US imperialism, firmly support President Nicolas Maduro and the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela

The revolutionary Filipino people vigorously condemn US President Donald Trump for trampling on the national sovereignty of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. His latest vile action against the heroic Venezuelan people is to disregard the democratic election of President Nicolas Maduro and give an invalid stamp of so-called recognition to the self-proclaimed usurper, Juan Guaido of the rightwing opposition in Venezuela.

Reply to Duterte's tirade in Lucena City against the CPP, NPA and revolutionary mass movement

There is nothing rotten or insane about fighting for genuine and full national independence and people’s democracy and eventually for socialism even for another 50 years until victory is won.

Duterte sets the stage for bigger war in Bangsamoro

The MILF seems to be satisfied with the BOL. But many people and forces in Bangsamoro are resolutely and vigorously opposed to it. They call it BOL-shit.

Rehashed amended petition to proscribe CPP-NPA is a piece of legal fiction with dire consequences for the people

The amended petition submitted by the Department of Justice of the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) seeking to proscribe the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and the New People’s Army (NPA) is a piece of legal fiction with dire consequences for the people.

NPA-NEMR preparing to release the POW's hampered by the continuous military operations of the AFP

The Committee of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and the command of the New People’s Army (NPA) in Front 21B and 21C disclosed that they are preparing to release the two soldiers of the 3rdSpecial Forces Battalion (SFB), Philippine Army (PA) and the 13 members of the Civilian Active Auxiliary (CAA) who are their prisoners of war (POWs). The plan however, is hampered by the continuous military operations launched by the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the utter disregard of AFP officials and the Government of the Philippines (GRP) for the welfare of their troops captured by the NPA.

600 ‘terrorists’ stricken off revised DOJ petition vs Reds

BAGUIO CITY — The Department of Justice (DOJ) has removed about 600 individuals and groups from a list of “terrorists” in a petition it filed last year to declare the Communist Party of the Philippines and its armed wing, the New People’s Army (NPA), as “terrorist and outlawed organizations.”


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.

Stupid slanted SWS survey question in favor of Duterte regime

Asking people whether they hope for the better this year is confusing them on some abstract and vague notion and playing on their tendency to hope for the better and to be hospitable, careful and even fearful of those in power, especially when they are extremely intimidating.

Peace agreement is more plausible and less costly than for GRP to destroy the revolutionary forces

In the next three years, it is possible for the GRP and NDFP to make a peace agreement if the Duterte regime is serious and sincere about negotiating and ending its all-out war against the revolutionary forces and the people.

Mga susing usapin sa ekonomya at pulitika na haharapin sa 2019

Sapulin natin ang mga susing usapin sa ekonomya at pulitika na haharapin sa 2019 upang matatag na maisulong ang ating mga tungkulin para ibayong palakasin ang Partido at isulong ang mga re­bo­lusyonaryong pakikibaka ng bayan. Nananawagan ang Par­­tido sa mamamayang Pilipino na sa taong ito ay ubos-kayang paigtingin ang paki­ki­baka para patalsikin ang papet, pasista at korap na rehimeng Du­ter­te.

Reset of deadline for scheme to destroy the NPA will surely fail as people's war will intensify

The Duterte regime has reset by three years the deadline for its scheme to destroy the New People’s Army. The scheme will surely fail from day to day, week to week, month to month and from year to year as the NPA will intensify tactical offensives and mass work. The same military and police of the same exploiting classes cannot accomplish in 3 years what they failed to accomplish in 50 years.

Duterte regime is engaged in anticommunist witch-hunt against teachers, lawyers. Journalist and others

The Duterte regime and its military and police minions have utterly failed to destroy the New People’s Army before the end of 2018 as they boastfully threatened in October 2017. They have not destroyed a single NPA guerrilla front. And they know that they cannot destroy the NPA before Duterte himself is out of power.

It is correct for NDFP to be for peace negotiations and expose Duterte's scheme of fascist dictatorship

It is correct for NDFP to be ever willing to negotiate peace with the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) in order to stress the fact that the Duterte regime has been responsible for all-out war since 2016 and for the termination of the peace negotiations since 2017 and has no real intention to engage in these because these would block the Duterte scheme of declaring martial law nationwide, rigging the May 2019 elections if at all held and imposing a fascist dictatorship on the people through charter change to a bogus kind of federalism.

On Duterte's statement of being open to peace negotiations

Enemies need peace negotiations before they can become friends or partners for the sake of the Filipino people who desire social, economic and political reforms as basis for a just and lasting peace.

On the failure to destroy the revolutionary movement and the possible ouster of Duterte

In the last quarter of 2017, Duterte’s highest military subordinates were claiming to be able to destroy the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and the New People’s Army (NPA) before the end of 2018. They have utterly failed.

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

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.


The Filipino people expect that this year, 2019, the socioeconomic and political crisis of the ruling system will worsen and that the Duterte regime will not solve or soften but will even aggravate the crisis by imposing heavier taxes and causing the prices of basic goods and services to rise further and to use the tax revenues and public debt to feed bureaucratic corruption and raise spending for the military and police in order to carry out his terrorist all-out war aimed at suppressing the revolutionary movement of the people.

Ito ang Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas!

Confront and frustrate the US-Duterte regime’s martial law in Negros Island this 2019

The Apolinario Gatmaitan Command of the New People’s Army (AGC-NPA) in Negros Island strongly condemns the terror sown from the implementation of the Synchronized Enhanced Managing of Police Operations (SEMPO) under the diabolical “Oplan Sauron” by the composite troops of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Philippine National Police (PNP) with the aim to destroy the revolutionary movement particularly in Negros.

It is significant that Mao mentions the pen first before the gun. Our experience shows that we must first arouse before we can organize and then mobilize people, whether it is in taking up the pen, or the gun, or further, the gun and the pen. Reviewing its 50 years of uninterrupted revolutionary struggle, we can say that the CPP has been successful in wielding both weapons,

Continuing simultaneous attacks in Negros Oriental are EJKs and illegal arrests, not at all related to drugs and criminal activities

LUCENA CITY, Philippines – Top communist rebel leader Jose Maria “Joma” Sison predicted an “unprecedented bloodshed” between government forces and New People’s Army (NPA) rebels in 2019 amid hope of peace talk resumption.

Crackdown against the people in Negros Oriental

The simultaneous attacks of Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Philippine National Police (PNP) troops against the people of Negros Oriental are not drug-related but a crackdown on progressive forces and ordinary peasants struggling for their daily survival and longing for genuine peace. The so-called "war on drugs" and "crime prevention" are o only covers to legitimize the presence of state agents and their crimes against the Filipino masses.

Tyrant Duterte is trapped in self-contradiction by claiming that the armed revolution is a failure

Through his mouthpiece Panelo, the tyrant Duterte claims that the revolutionary movement led by the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) is a failed rebellion. He does not understand how the protracted people’s war creates the conditions for the establishment and development of a comprehensive array of revolutionary forces against the ruling system.

The Filipino people have the sovereign right to oust the Duterte tyrannical regime

Having become a tyrant and a shameless instigator of mass murder and other grave human rights violations, Duterte is the abominable No. 1 violator of human rights and is the precise target of the Filipino people’s exercise of their sovereign right to free themselves from tyranny and to undertake all necessary actions to oust him from his position.

Duterte is a bloodthirsty tyrant with a malicious criminal mind

Since he became president in 2016, Duterte has unleashed his all-out war against the revolutionary movement. There has been no letup in violent attacks and human rights violations by his armed minions even during periods of ceasefire in the course of the GRP-NDFP peace negotiations.


On this very auspicious occasion, the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist Leninist) brings its warmest revolutionary greetings to this national gathering in Toronto to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of the Philippines.

Comment on EO 70

By Jose Maria SisonNDFP Chief Political ConsultantDecember 11,…

The unrelenting violation of human rights by the fascist US-Duterte regime will intensify the further advance of armed revolution

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.

Temporary unilateral ceasefire while on alert and heightening spirit of resistance to celebrate the Party’s 50th anniversary

The Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) hereby declare to all commands and units of the New People’s Army (NPA) and people’s militias a temporary unilateral ceasefire in unity with the Filipino people’s observance of traditional holidays and provide the people and their revolutionary forces a brief period to pay tribute to their heroes and martyrs as they mark and celebrate the Party’s upcoming 50th anniversary.

NDFP condemns arrest of Casambre couple

The National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) vehemently condemns the arrest last night of Rey Claro Casambre, executive director of the Philippine Peace Center and his wife Cora as they were on the way home to Molino, Cavite.

Government neglect and AFP’s inhumaneness in the time of calamity

It has been two months from the time when a contagious disease begin to spread rapidly in several Lumad communities in Upper Suyan village, Malapatan town in Sarangani Province. Local civilian organizations confirmed that towards the end of November, at least 22 B’laan residents have died due to its complications.

Return the 14 Salugpongan students to their parents! Stop attacks on Lumad schools!

The National Democratic Front of the Philippines Special Office for the Protection of Children (NDFP SOPC) strongly condemns the continuing illegal detention and endangerment of students of the Salugpongan School in Talaingod, Davao del Norte by elements of the 56th IB, PNP-Talaingod and the Alamara paramilitary group.

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.

NPA harass Army Patrol Base in Hinobaan: 1 soldier killed, 1 wounded

A unit of the Armando Sumayang, Jr. Command (ASJC), the New People's Army (NPA) Southwest Negros Guerrilla Front, harassed an Army Patrol Base in Sitio Bugtong Kahoy, Barangay Asia, Hinobaan, Negros Occidental last November 27, 2018, 8 o'clock in the morning.

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.
