The NDFP – North Central Mindanao Region fervently condemns the US-Duterte's martial law, which does not have a big difference of Marcos' martial law, 45 years ago.

Duterte cheap talk on peace

As the Party and NDFP has often stated, it is the policy of the revolutionary forces to remain open to peace negotiations with any ruling regime that expresses willingness to seriously discuss the roots of the armed conflict in accordance with previously agreed principles and procedures as stipulated in The Hague Declaration.

On the question of resuming the formal peace talks

More than ever, the Filipino people and revolutionary forces need the solidarity and support of the peoples of the world.

Duterte demands NPA surrender thru ceasefire while waging all-out war

Duterte's demand for an NPA ceasefire while the AFP conducts all-out war as precondition for peace talks is a demand to surrender. This is an unacceptable. Does Duterte really take the revolutionary forces for fools?

Unite the people to resist Duterte's heightened tyrannical rule

Rodrigo Duterte is obsessed with his strongman ambitions. He is set on establishing himself as a fascist despot. His resort to tyranical methods has heightened since having unravelled as a camp-follower of the US imperialists. He has become ever more brazen and unapologetic in carrying out repressive policies and measures.

End the US-Duterte regime's anti-Moro war

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.

Discussing socio-economic reform proposals is the enabling environment conducive to peace talks – NDFP RWC-SER

“We expect that there will be no more delays. The talks have already wasted so much time.

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.

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. It denigrates as well the NDFP Negotiating Panel and questions its representation of the revolutionary forces.

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. That martial law in Mindanao was imposed because of claims of rebellion and terrorism of the so-called Maute Group in Marawi City is unacceptable

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.

The National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) would like to make the following factual clarifications in the face of repeated claims by the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) that the majority of the political prisoners listed by the NDFP have already been released.

STATEMENT OF THE NDFP NEGOTIATING PANEL

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 facts on the ground, however, belie Bello's statements. 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.
